    Thanks @JVJ, I appreciate that.

    Occasionally I build in bigger boxes. I just finished up "The HorseBender MkIII" which one might guess is a Tonebender Mk.III + Klon circuits in the same box. The enclosure is so big, I didn't know what to do with it.

    Switching jacks are there so each circuit can be accessed individually, or the two center jacks can be ignored and it can be used as a standard combo pedal.

    I haven't done a good job of updating this, but I'll try and change that.

    Just finished up a mini Rangemaster build for TGP resident @WWW. It's a pretty straightforward build, with the addition of a voltage inverter and switchable caps to make it treble/mid/full range boost.

    Been messing around with the Gorva Design enclosures lately. I dig these. They are slightly smaller than a 125BB and the top is contoured.

    Silver with creme knobs. There wasn't enough contrast on the lettering, so I backfilled with red ink. I probably won't be doing more like this.

    In other Clusterfuzz news, we're rolling out the Clusterfuzz Micro. It's going to be released in small batches. Other minis are also going to be rolled out in small batches under the Function F(x) brand. It's sort of a merging between my personal mini obsession and Function F(x).

    Silver with cream knobs and red lettering is fantastic! I love the pillowy look of those pedals. They look edible. Fresh Baked Fuzz!

    Same here. I’ve got a rotating mini pedal spot on my board now that I’d love to try this in.

    We’ve actually shipped a couple already. The minis are going to built in small batches on a revolving schedule and it’ll be first come, first served. We are going to put them up on our website when they are ready, but anybody who wants to get in the queue can email us or shoot me or @cjwattage a PM and those will be filled before they go up on the site.

    Is this available? If not, are you doing more?

    This was a custom build, but another could certainly be done. Shoot me a PM if you want to discuss it.

    Just a quick user review for you. It is amazing.

    I nearly sold it recently because I was playing pedalboard Tetris and figured I'd get something else built by Pickdropper to make better use of the space I have.

    Prospective buyer asked me to make a video with it. Plugged it in and 2hrs playing later I refused to sell it. The circuits work brilliantly either side or stacked.

    It's also super duper quiet. Oh and the treble booster cleans up like a great fuzz face.

    I haven't been doing a good job of updating this thread. First up is a Tonebender Mk I.5/III combo build that I did for @Peps. As I mentioned in another thread, I wasn't sure how the laser etched plate would turn out, but it came out great (IMHO).

    Here's another custom build that I recently made for @Last Nerve. It's a combination Octavia/Clusterfuzz 2-in-1. It's basically the Octavus mini and the Clusterfuzz mini builds I do put together in a single enclosure.

    So this is the silliest pedal I've ever built. Somebody wanted a Tonebender Mk1.5 with Fozzy Bear on the outside. Thus "The Fozz Bender" was born. Wocka Wocka.
