Recently assembled in the MERDE labs: a very, very fuzzy piece of business. This unit has ALL the bass, and most of the mid as well- think Boris on a smaller budget. Knobs control output volume and 'sensitivity'- built in noise gate that takes it form rampaging feedback to hyper-muted chugfest. Two batteries? yep- it's a bi-polar circuit spar.

One from the M.E. vaults here.... built by the head technicians circa 2004- the guts of this baby once resided in a cheapo voice changer. Now it makes for one mean pitch bender/cruncher. Added features include a light sensor which means the pitch bend can be used as an optical theremin.

Insane distortion/warping/squealing with built in microphone!
Signature edition as wedding gift to J. Christian Henry- here at M.E.R.D.E we pity the blushing bride!
Small knob controls volume, larger knob tweaks the sound. Push button engages/disable the microphone (which is the white piece at the front)

Indestructable contact mic R&D


The Dictator

The pedal that started it all. Microcassette dictaphone rewired into insane distortion with incomprehensable synth doom weirdness effects.

Walkman distortion work in progress. Dead Boss pedal housing re-cycled.

Coming soon...
