Yeah, I love it at like 8-10:00, tone at 8-9:00. It has just the right amount of SVT-ish grind without becoming fuzz right there.

Yesterday I made a board of the Green Russian amd Triangle Nanos along with a Mastrotron.

The Triangle is much hotter than the GR, and also sounds good on the bass, but can't get the subtle grind.

The Mastrotron is anuvver Zvez craziness-incarnate, tho' not as wild as say, the Wooly Mammoth or Fuzz Factory.

I used the board with a looper into a clean SS amp (Trademark 10) and was wankin' with a Xavier semi-hollow LP-type guitar with P90-types.

Running either nano into the Mastrotron was pure bliss - just so cool.

The nanos did not stack well into each other.

But that GR - I'm really thinking of swapping out the Pork Loin I replaced the Hot Tubes with on my bass board ...

And then getting anuvver GR for the guitar board, if I see one cheap enuff (my cut-off for nano's is US$60-65.00)

I’ve got a double muff that I like to voltage sag, maybe give that a whirl too.

Bet that sounds real, eh, dirty. :twisted:

What do you use to drop the voltage?

My power supply (one spot cs12) has this feature built in but there are also simple DIY projects to build a dying battery sim.

Ah.

I've seen a pedal that does it somehow- a MXR, I think, where it's a feature ...

Sure does! I admit I forgot about this one. I used to have a real optigan but it barely worked so I got rid of it (not needing another project and all that).

If I were independently wealthy I would buy one of these: https://www.quilterlabs.com/index.php/p ... isc-Player

But $4k seems like a lot to me.
