Reasonably Good Mangler

Because sometimes it's about ripping your tone apart and getting crazy.

With the Starve and Tone pots wound back this box will give you some nasty, splatty overdrive. Nicely doomy. Bring those two controls into the mix and you're off into spluttering gated mess and all-out oscillation. Equally good on bass, synth, drum machine - whatever you can throw at it.

As well as the four controls of the original unit, this FuzzDog take on it offers up a optional fifth knob to tweak your noise into ever stranger territory. We won't kid you - with the fifth knob on there it gets mighty tight and you'll need nimble fingers to twiddle your controls, but it's worth it. You can go for an internal trimmer for the Tweak control if you want to keep things simple, or even just a fixed resistor as per the original.

Designed for board-mounted vertical pots (round shafts - you'll need knobs with set-screw fitting), or you can wire up normal ones if you want to get it into a bigger box with different control layout.

This one's a LOT of fun.

Just... weird... trippy... obscene... 5 product stars
"I m having a blast with this using it with my MiniBrute analogue synth, and my Korg Monologue. Even the SparkLE drum machine got in on the action. What a trip. I m still having visions. Too hard to explain it all, so I won t try. But I m so glad I took the chance on this romance, built the thing and put it down my pants. Yep. Perfect for ear perverts everywhere!" damnedcat777 - 26/02/2018
