While recently having a lovely circa 1976 BMP, equipped with BC239 transistors, in my shop, I was inspired by its tangy, biting tone. It made me wonder what if David Gilmour's famous Big Muff from the Animals and The Wall projects was equipped with BC239 transistors? The Skreddy GMP BC239 is the product of this thought experiment. It has great bite and articulation while being smooth and musical. Its large format is necessary for the oversized tropical fish capacitors and 1/2 watt carbon composition resistors while still having room to put the open-frame Switchcraft jacks at the top end.
I have a limited supply of the tropical fish caps, maybe enough to build 30 or so?
We’ll invoice you for the balance including the shipping cost upon completion.
Allow about 3 months for us to get through our list and make your pedal.
If I don’t answer an email, please re-send it in case I missed it. We are busier now than ever.
US orders will be sent via USPS Priority Mail. International orders will be sent using USPS Priority International where available.
We will not declare your package at a lower value for customs; be prepared to pay your own country’s import duty when you receive the package.
Regular 9v negative ground, no special power requirements. 9v battery is not included. If you use a battery, then remember to un-plug the input cable from the pedal’s input jack when not in use to prevent draining (or you can also just plug in a power-supply, which disconnects the battery).
You may supply external power through an AC adapter. All Skreddy Pedals accept the industry-standard 9v DC plug (5.5mm barrel x 2.1mm center coax), negative tip. Please use a quality, regulated, filtered power supply.
