    Does anyone make a Cornish clone/inspired pedal? Are there pedals currently available that sound similar? Financially, I can't justify spending $700 for a fuzz pedal at this time although I REALLY want one. (The NG-2 looks VERY interesting). One former Cornish owner on TGP said he now uses a Chupacabra for his Cornish/Gilmour lead sounds, and has anyone heard of a Big Muff w/a "Cornish Mod"?

    cornish circuits are protected with red goop.
    make a clone is impossible.

    to build a muff with "cornish mod":

    civil war basis:

    silent mod, change the transistor
    MPSA05, 2n3904, 2N5088, 2N5089, and MPSA18
    increase cap from 430 to 560pF
    put metal film everywhere

    and adjust your sound with this:

    The Psionic 3.14 is killer for that sound I am super impressed. I started looking for a Pink Flesh but the prices are too high. I was recommended this pedal and it flat works great.

    goop can come off if you know what you are doing. his most popular pedals are nothing more than very well know mass produced pedals that he modifies and puts in ridiculously tough cases

    Sure, the TES is a modified Boss DD-2. You can pick up a Boss digital delay on the Bay for $75 but the TES goes for over $2000 and he's selling all he can produce. What is the magical quality that makes these devices so amazing that musicians famous and unfamous are willing to throw down such large sums of cash? It's like Dumble amps, is the sound quality worth $50,000? To some players, yes-it is. I can't have a Dumble but I'd be very happy with a Fuchs, Carol Ann, Bruno, etc. Likewise, I'd like to see an affordable NG-2, P-2, G-2 clone.

    Interesting. So is the Cornish P-2 based on the Civil War Big Muff?

    That's a common mis-conception. Pete ships out a schematic with the TES and Chorus and there is a lot more too it than simply rehousing.

    Thanks for the recommendation. I'll look into the Psionic.

    I can also vouch for this statement owning the Super Chorus. Pete indeed supplied the schematic with it and there is a hell of a lot going on inside - a rehoused CE2 does not weigh 2KG lol!!!!
