played with a gibson es 339 / amber paf bridge pu.
through a vintage fender (ehx memory man in the loop)
recorded through the i phone microphones .
Lead / Gate & Air - switch makes it a
versatile , high-gain , Germanium powered Lead -

the alienation switch from CR plus a second momentary footswitch

" Right off this is one of the coolest looking pedals I’ve ever seen
( like some neolithic alien artifact; it is a retro-futuristic
looking beauty with a corresponding vibe ).
I’ve only just started coaxing some musical language out
of the pedal and already there are discernible the
Tonebender MkIII / Buzzaround
tone sculpting attributes we’ve discussed…
PLUS there’s something of the ESR “Graphic Fuzz”
( a pedal I hold in high regard ) in the raptor like trills/oscillations
I’ve been able to IMMEDIATELY dial into.
Right now I’m just getting this thing to “talk” and learn it’s language,
but the musical vistas this thing can open up are sure to inspire.
Kudos Gugu on this Destroy ALL Monsters uber pedal. " (vedas)
