    Designation Hsn-7 is Coming

    Designation Hsn-7 is the culmination of all the previous custom Seraph pedals combining the best features I could squeeze out of the circuit. At it's core the circuit is basically the same as the Seraph which is a take on the Boss DC-2. After much tweaking and bending I discovered this circuit...

    There's No Place Like Fuzz

    My assistant Mike asked why bother having a Fuzz or Volume control on a Fuzz Face type circuit since they should both be dimed. I had to agree, The one control is the bias. Mike made a pair of these, one for himself and one for his girlfriend and I thought, oh we must make more. Mike did a great...

    Wolftone VS Fralin P-90's?

    I have an '89 Les Paul Gold Top, had P-100's stock, didn't sound bad but I like single coils, put in a set of Wolftone pups last year - Vintage Mild (8.03K) for the neck and Vintage Med (8.89K) for the bridge, always liked them but a bit heavy on the mids even for P-90's and a tad too hot. I...
