SCROLL DOWN TO THE LAST POST BISH


can i get your folks opinion on how this looks, do the encircled numbers around each knob seem to cluttered??? it is going to be printed on a silver polished enclosure about 4 inches wide by 1 inch tall to give some context...

For her first album, the B, and K are Le Griffe Swash and the J and R is just Le Griffe.

I don't like the font much, seems borderline illegible.

I'm fine with the circles too

i wasn't really feeling the original design i had after a couple months. this is the final revision im about to send in but wanted to get some input from the non-guitar playing folks around here. going for a cold war, satellite control array kind of feel. the graphic will not be screen printed directly to the enclosure but will be printed on domed industrial adhesive labels so keep that in mind. what do you guys think?

Looks pretty cool. Did you build the entire unit? How does it sound compared to other classic pedals like the Big Muff & Rat?

Good to know folks are still homebrewing their own effects & gear these days. I've noticed gear mods espeically on guitar effects pedals are becoming increasingly popular also.

Nice, clean, sleek. I like it.

thanks guys, i think i may go ahead and use this after i sand some things down a bit so it wont look so scrunched at half that size on the actual unit.

thanks, i built the entire unit. its based off the arbiter fuzz face(think hendrix), a relatively simple circuit but mine sounds far more pissed off than the original ever was intended to sound. it has a tone pot which the originals lacked that allows you to open up the fuzz from blanketed and nasal to bright and wide. true bypass switching and has a fuck ton of volume output on tap as well, unity is at about 10 oclock on the altitude pot. its meant to be dimed, it can do low to medium gain work very well but excels running at full boar. sustain for days, cuts through the mix very well and can push alot of air. works great as a pre-dirt fuzz to push rhythm and chord work as well. it shares more in common with a big muff than it does a fuzz face at its highest settings actually, but the sabre retains its strength through chord work and doesn't crack up if stacked with other dirts or get lost in a band situation.


The Germanium font looks like a goiter eating a half-corpse.

only thing im really reluctant on, but its been the one that looks the best with everything else so far.

...and i've heard of goiters actually developing teeth and fingernails but never an actual lower jaw or palate

It does look really nice and slick, but the geranium font is hard to read and kind of fights the aesthetic of everything else.
