    This is not a sarcastic question. I'm kind of a pedal noob. What makes this so special?

    IIRC isn’t it mostly a very aggressive bass fuzz ?

    They sound AMAZING, are totally discontinued, and apparently are surging in popularity.

    A couple of Depth Charge tones:



     
  5. Eep... I love the depth charge... but yeah not at that price!!

  6. So it's a brassmaster clone with some tweaks? Sounds close to my Iron Ether Oxide, not ever selling that one either!

    Actually, it’s much closer to a modified Superfuzz than a Brassmaster.

    Company is gone, so it’s for real. I have clone and a real one. The clones are good but not nearly as good as the original.

    Back in 2015 I was in the works to buy schematics and rights from Jack and he just all of a sudden stopped responding to me. :( I liked him and I’m not sure what the hell happened.

    If anyone knows his contact info now, that’d be awesome. I’d totally put more out there.

    It’s a pedal that REALLY needs to be out there!

    Didn't watch the first clip much...was blown away by the second clip, though. :thumbsup:

  13. depth3-.

    Assuming this image is accurate it doesn't look like any unusual/expensive components. Definitely far simpler than a Brassmaster build. Should be easy enough to do a 1:1 clone that sounds exactly the same though I didn't see a layout or schematic in a quick Google search. Might have to dig deeper on the DIY forums.
     
  14. Mmm, my two favorite fuzzes...

  15. Anyone got a schematic for this thing? Just GFGI'd it and came up empty...

    You guys are making me want to break mine out again. I got it really cheap when they were still made years ago from a guy who I trusted implicitly when he said “buy this, buy that.” Wouldn’t ever sell it. Just like if someone wants to sell me a way huge piercing moose, I won’t sell that either.

  17. I didn't look too hard but I didn't see one either. Clones exist though so it is probably out there somewhere. Looks like a pretty simple circuit.

  18. May have to just stick with my Earthtone Pi (Russian Muff kinda-a-clone). Sounds similar, but not quite there...

    it doesn't matter, the post office will lose it anyway and nobody will ever get to play it

    Schematic is out there. I know a guy who’s making the clones. However, again, it just doesn’t sound the same to me. I’m not sure why. I can try and post clips.
