Okay, I'm probably going to order a BYOC Kit through www.vibe-o-tronic.co.uk later. Anyone built either a 2 Knob Bender, Leeds Fuzz or Octave Fuzz? It's gonna be one of those so if anyone has any pros/cons it'd be interesting to know.

... sorry, I should have maybe replied a little sooner: I've got a Leeds Fuzz, and it's great. Heard good things about the tonebender too though. Vibe-o-tronic were pretty pony during my dealings with them - I ordered mine from Axe and you Shall Receive in Canada; got here quicker than the UK agent managed first time around.

No bother, fingers crossed they've bucked their ideas up since. It'll be my first go at putting together a pedal, really looking forward to it. I'll put some pics in here when I've finished. The graphics are gonna be based on this (my record label logo):

Very nice - it's meant to be a fantastic tonebender clone, same (or even better!) innards than some very expensive TB clones.

Liam is a dude. He put my band on in Deptford but we got the pub venue early and the locals scared the shit out of Yola and Stacey so we had to leave. Sorry fella!

I was having a bit of a nosey today, but wow, this was a long time ago. No worries Tim, Millwall fans are a pretty tough crowd. That place is a bookies now unfortunately, had some interesting gigs there.

FYI - I did eventually build the Tonebender kit and it sounded great until someone managed to pour pretty much a whole pint over my pedal board at a gig some years ago. Grumbly Wolf and Gingham Tremolo survived though.

Buy Tim's pedals, they're guaranteed against beer and Deptford.
