I have added a page for another addition to my ‘Standard’ line of pedals that I build; the Tesla Cannon Fuzz!
I have been building this circuit for a while now for my clients, and have tweaked it to the point where I feel it meets all the requirements, and tonal characteristics, I look for in a Muff style pedal. I really love this pedal, and I hope you will too.
More info can be found here:
You can also navigate to the Tesla Cannon product page using the pedals menu above.
I will be uploading more sound demos (and a video) soon.

Another day, another Muff 😉
This is a custom Tesla Cannon that I built for a guy who loves his Skreddy Mayo, but wished it had more control over the mids, and a tad more gain on tap.
He is also a massive Smashing Pumpkins fan (as am I for that matter), so the name came from him.
The PCB is my standard ‘Tesla Cannon’ circuit, but with some tweaks to get a tad more saturation and gain going on (larger coupling caps, lower value emitter resistors etc.).
I also used 2N5088 transistors (I usually use BC184C’s or BC550C’s) in this build to bump the gain up even further. The transistors were hand selected and tested as usual with all my Big Muff builds.
This thing is a beast; it produces a huge wall of fuzz, and the sustain control has a lot more usefull range than most Big Muff’s I have used.
It sounded so good I almost wanted to keep it for myself 😉
Alrighty, heres another recent custom build.
This one is a Big Muff (built to Skreddy Mayo spec’s), with an added mids switch.
The mids switch lets you go from traditional scooped mids, to flat-mids, which can help cutting through a mix when playing with a band.
Its pink, because as we all know, real men wear pink!
Hope you like the pics!
