New Project Coming Soon

Picked this up last night. I know there are build plans on them on websites like and many others, but I think I'm going to do a step by step tutorial on bending one. I tried one years ago when I was new to bending and I killed it within moments of cracking it open. I hope to God that it doesn't happen again.

I know the casing to these ones are really fragile, so I'll probably end up rehousing it, and I know there are a lot of purists out there who hate rehoused bent devices, and I feel for you, but I gotta do what I gotta do.

Anyway, I'll be uploading pictures and other goodies when this project gets going, so stay tuned.

Also, as you probably noticed, I've been neglecting this blog for a couple months, this is because I have another site,, that I'm selling my bent goodies and homebrew synths from. So head over there and if anything catches your fancy, get in contact.

 A closer look at the board.

Update 9.6.2011:

I added a 20K pot (okay, it's a 10K with a 10K resistor on the middle lug) for pitch. It's attached to the 15K resistor right under the black blob IC. I completely replaced the 15K for this mod to get the full extent of the bend.

I know there are feedback bends, but I may not do those for this. I'm planning this as a guitar pedal, so I'll probably hold off on any bends that are too noisy.

More updates and documentation soon.
