Taka-Ei Limited Edition
About 10 years ago, I built a clone of a vintage Shin-Ei fuzz circuit (FY-2) for my friend Tommy (who is the Satellite Amplifiers cabinet guy). We were recently clearing out the shop and re-found the pedal I made him. Plugged it in and we were in fuzz heaven.
The circuit is a dual silicon fuzz circuit, with controls for Fuzz and for Volume. This has plenty of gain on tap, and goes well beyond unity. Runs on a standard 9v battery, or can be run on most normal wall wart style DCpower supplies.
Also recently, a good friend of ours helped us out in a few ways, and we wanted to do something to honor him for being such an awesome guy. His name is Taka, and everyone who knows him knows how awesome he is. So, I decided to name this after him.
We are limiting the run of these pedals to 50 total. Production will start shipping in 6-8 weeks. We are trying to overshoot our timing estimate, so hoping for an even earlier shipping date. Pre-orders will save $20 off the cost, and also can type TAKA at checkout for free shipping on this pedal.
Enclosures are a standard 125B style rectangular enclosure.
