Two varieties of Harmonic Percolator and a Green Russian Muff for now, but I've revamped the website and I'm a little proud of it:

Coming soon... I think I need to make an A/B box that'll flick between them instantly to demonstrate the difference. There's a really nice feel to the UP actually, less hard-edged than the HP, and fuzzier. Don't know if anyone with a Harmonic Percolator would need this one as well however.

Nice site, Tim, really professional looking. Maybe post some gutshots?

Excellent beginning to an already enthusiastic start. Wishing the best to ya, things are looking and sounding really good so far.

Lovin' the buzz, and the classy looks.

Thanks Andy, much appreciated! Tim, do you think normal guitarists (not us finicky lot) want to see gutshots? I was thinking of putting some up, but big pedal makers or even boutiquers don't seem to do this. Maybe a link to a pic rather than make a big deal of innards shots.

It will definitely help to display the quality of your work. As an individual that is working on their own it will give them a feeling of trust in your ability.

Yep, I really think it'd help - I think people want to see what they are buying, plus your work is very neat.

Stencil Wolf looks fantastic. What's the difference between the two percolators?

This pedal uses very rare Russian new old stock MP16B germanium and ST3904 silicon transistors. Differing from the original Harmonic Percolator, and the other clone I make, this pedal offers slightly more fuzz, gain and sustain, straying into fuzz rather than overdrive territory.

I've come across a couple of these pedals whilst browsing ebay. I'd say your site will definitely help sales. The gutshots look great too.

Today's build, we'll called this the Husk(er)y Wolf. A one-off (well, I've drilled/painted an enclosure for one more) for Vince L.
The circuit is a faithful clone of the beige-box MXR dist+. It sounds triffic!

I will say though, that my effect goes 'Distortion/Gain' then 'Volume' - because the other way round is lame.

Very nice indeed. I read some disconcerting stuff about Millenium Bypass burning through transistors in time the other day, however. I don't know how often it happens though. Why are you so keen to drop 3DPTs?

The Alpha dpdt switches are just neater and nicer to use (I can turn this pedal on and off with my little finger... useful!?!) than the standard 3pdt switches. The technology impresses me too. It's not really about saving the extra £2 on the big switch. Not heard of any problems with millenium bypass, but obvs if any of these break I'll swap em for the old 3pdt option.
