    I think you're in for a great sounding MKII.

    I think I needs to get one of his builds...

    I knows, he really captured the vibe of the vintage tone bender and put it in a small box. Insides look great too, now its just the worst part, waiting :D! Great price too at 185 (Well still expensive but compared to some unnamed MKII's this is a great value)

    It was 185 with oc75's and the paint job (15 for tranny's 10 for the vintage look). The standard is 160 though :D.

    Will try to post clips when I receive the pedal!

    I think every "I needs" a good MKII or other tonebender derivative :D.

    Thank you, I'll have to figure this out so I can embed the glorious innards as well.

    Thats a really nice looking pedal.I've been considering one for some time.
    But like most thing I'll probably dilly around till the price elevates out of my reach.

    I don't know 160 for the standard ( mine was 185), isn't something to wait for, no really equally priced alternative, except the probender, but seems the prices are creeping, and production is indefinite. This is obviously a top quality pedal though. Even the pedal with your Mullard OC81d's is as much as your average D*A*M (400) with 75's or 76's, its clear what a brand name will do for you though. But of course as all but too many of us realize as guitarists that money IS an object. Sigh....look at my Gearpage listed "location" for example.

    OC75's are my favorite for a TB circuits, OC81D's are cool for the mojo factor and collectable standpoint, but overall the 75's are damn good trannies and when tuned and matched and work so well in different tonebender variants MKI, MKII, MKIII.

    I would personally take the Impex S3-1T's over the OC81D's myself after reading Dave Main's thoughts on trannie types and mojo factor, the Impex tone falls in between the OC75's and OC81's. :D

    Here are Dave's thoughts on the subject of transistors. :bow

    I prefer my OC81D MKII over my OC84 MKII. I can get all of the tones I can get from my OC84 MKII by backing off the fuzz Attack pot. At full blast, it's FULL BLAST.

    No complaints with the 75s. I gots 2 Supa Fuzz clones with 75s. My '69 Supa has been repaired with a trio of Mullard labeled OC71s and that's a F*CKING FACE PEELER!
