Oddballs, One-offs, Clones and Otherwise » Number 23 Mk II

A trip further down the faux-fur covered rabbit-hole, this time featuring a modified Number 23. Other than re-defining how literal one can interpret the word fuzz, this box nixes the voltage sag that was included in the first batch of 23’s and instead replaces it with an additional boost to assist with those moments when loud just isn’t enough. Similar to 23 Mk I, I also decided to experiment with different combinations of clipping diodes, eventually settling on a combination of a silicon diode and a pink LED. The resulting sound ends up being much harsher and metallic than it’s predecessors, but in all, I think that’s a good thing.
