Here's a pic of the finnished Gristliser, mine was a musicling kit, so there's 6 positions on rotary switch I labelled them D for distortion as you get a grainy distorted signal with no modulation, I will add some diodes to one of them to give a different flavour. Thanks to Taylor for his tireless effort helping everyone out on this massive thread.

Looks good! I think it was 11 years ago this month when the first run of this PCB was made. Definitely didn't expect people to still be building them all this time later.

Taylor, Halloween this year was a cover of Bela Lugosi's Dead and I probably used your Gristleizer on every track. I think I have built 3 of yours and given them to my fave musician friends. There is nothing like it.

Awesome! Obviously the main credit goes to Roy Gwinn for designing the thing way back when, and Chris Carter for popularizing it.

Oof! Well I'm sure you'll get around to it...  :icon_wink: I have something that I'm working on still, that I originally wrote the code for in 2010. And I have an acoustic musical instrument that I bought wood for in 2007 that I still keep telling myself I'll finish some day.
