Thought I'd kick off my first post here with something I made recently that (I thought) was interesting.

The guts are basically a DS8 clone kit (with some minor bends & mods) plus a bypassable vacuum tube overdrive/distortion circuit.

Features;

*Custom designed and etched brass faceplate
*White pearl knobs
*Touch sensitive white leather drum pad
*NOS Plessey & Sprague tone caps

Here's a quick track I threw together that features it heavily;
