The new Tym Red Mudd

Since starting my Big Mudd series a couple of years ago I get asked for this version time and time again, mainly by bass players and stoner rock guitarists, so, here it is. This is the new Tym version of the green/army overdrive/sustain pedal from the early 90's.
Like most of these pedals this is essentially the same circuit as all the other versions with some component changes in key areas. It was sold in a few different versions originally and like most of their products, yes,they do all sound slightly different. I used 2 original versions that I've kept for their tone as a template to work from. After building one as per "spec" from online schematics I then started modifying the circuit slightly to fine tune the tone.

While this is an exact copy of the original I am also offering a modified version that lets slightly MORE bottom end through without getting unusably muddy. While still being great on guitar, especially if you tune down, this will work for bass players who currently use one of these versions but with features like my smaller stainless steel enclosures, standard 9V "BOSS" style adaptor, and a standard stomp switch. I also have IN and OUT the "right" way around .........

The Russian writing at the bottom under the Tym logo says "Made in Brisbane, Australia" or at least, that's what we think it says !! These pedals will be available VERY soon. Contact Tym guitars for these or any other pedal in the Tym range. Thanks for supporting Tym guitars.
