The voskhod is an improved version of the "black box" Russian Big Muff, built with a clean blend and a smaller pedal enclosure to save pedalboard space.
The animated is built with brand new germanium tranistors, a clean blend for better fit with bass and an internally adjustable gate for tighter control of sound.
*List of countries with free shipping TBA
The animated is a clone of the Human Gear Animato using the original circuitry with an included clean blend to make it more suitable for bass. It is a bright, incredibly gainy distortion.
The voskhod is a variant of the EHX Big Muff Pi tuned to be a touch deeper than the common Russian variants (black box) and include a clean blend to make it more suitable for bass. It is a deeper bodied distortion.
I'll be putting up more and more as time goes on
Some time November 2016. You can contact me on Facebook or at firstname.lastname@example.org to get on to the early order list, which will have first preference
This will be announced closer to release while production is still being done. The main thing is it will be kept at an economical price and include free shipping to most countries.
When available, it will use the PayPal merchant system on this website. Accepts most credit cards.
Here are a short list of changes:
I am currently working on distribution methods so I can get all my pedals into some shops in the Australia and the UK for the time being. This may be a short while after release.
The short answer is, I'm not certain, I donít know how others have set up or done theirs exactly, I only compare to the original (serial #373) I have on hand. Any current clones that claim to be exact are making are using my reverse engineered design which was done around October 2014. If they aren't using that schematic, it isn't a clone, simple. I can't tell unless I take one apart and trace.
That sounded like a lot of market speak, but the quality and sound is something I strive for. All are tested against my original and set up to match it. I have a qualified audio engineer on board now to ensure tonally it is as close as humanly possible.
I will offer support and look after any issues personally for as long as I'm alive or able to. I want to give the most support I can in regards to faults or queries. Emailing me at email@example.com will be the best place to start.
I've had many, many requests for this. I will have a few pedals specifically made for review. You can contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information. Any demo unit will be decided on at my discretion. Those that ask will have a few weeks with the pedal, with the option to buy if they are content. Review units will be available at the same time as early sale.
