MOD Kits DIY Introduces the Contortionist II

An all-analog, high octane fuzz box.

Scottsdale, AZ (February 26, 2015) -- The Contortionist II kit is an all-analog high octane fuzz box. It produces fuzz with layered octave overtones similar to those produced by an electronic bow. The frequency multiplier circuitry creates harmonics that swell and recede depending on the gain setting, pick attack, neck position and pickup. This high gain circuit can put out up to two volts and provides ample amounts of sustain. Added features to the original Contortionist circuit include a tone control and LED.

MOD Kits and Assemblies are designed to give novice and experienced musicians the opportunity to build or modify their own amps, effects pedals and guitars. All kits come with easy-tofollow instructions and use point-to-point wiring. All effect pedals and amplifiers come with a pre-drilled enclosure and all necessary parts are included. All you need to provide are hand tools, a soldering iron and solder. The effect pedal operates on a 9V battery; for a longer lasting option, a 9-volt adapter can be purchased separately.

“The Man Comes Around” is a much-played song from the final album Johnny Cash recorded before his death in 2003, American IV: The Man Comes Around. Now, the Man in Black himself has come around again, as the voice and soul of a just-released album he initially cut in 1993, titled Songwriter.
