NPD - Rarest of the rare!!

Managed to score me one hell of a rare bird the other day. This is the Buster Jangle pedal, created from the combined geniuses of Brian at Subdecay and Nicholas at Catalinbread. There were only 23 ever built, and this is #19. It's essentially a Catalinbread Super Chili Picoso boost and a Subdecay Liquid Sunshine overdrive in a single pedal, but with it's own little twist. I honestly have never heard a better overdrive pedal. I currently use the Suhr line of pedals and really like them, but this pedal one-ups them. The sheer clarity of this pedal is just boggling. I knew nothing about this pedal or it's rarity at all when I tried it, I was just blown away by the sound. Came home, did some research, found practically nothing (there's almost nothing about this pedal online, I think there are like 3 results under google)...and brought it home with me.

Here she is:



TLDR: if you ever see one of these for sale anywhere, buy it on sight. It's just that damn good.

Clips will be incoming as soon as I can find my vidcam. I'm just currently spending some time trying to figure out exactly where to place it on my board.

The Chili Picoso is based on the Orman Minibooster, which is a great boost. It's no surprise to me that it sounds great to you.

I've never tried any of either company's pedals, but something about this collaboration is just magical. I don't understand why there's so little online about it, people seem to be raving about this pedal whenever I find a mention of it. I suppose they're spending their time playing and not typing :P

And I have a fantastic boost that I adore right now (Xotic effects EP Booster), but this is just a different kind of boost. The EP is really a clean boost and this gives a little more dirt.

I wish I could elaborate more on why it may sound good, but I'm having problems finding a schematic of the liquid sunshine.

Schematic or no schematic, I just listen to my ears. And to my ears this is definitely the best overdrive I have ever heard.

Well, of course.

I just like to know why certain pedals sound good. It gives me a good understanding of how to change and build my own rig and my tone.

I see what looks like the pads for 4 transistors. One for the MOSFET boost and I'm guessing the other 3 are cascaded for the Liquid Sunshine.

But I also see 8 pads that look like a DIP8 package so maybe an op amp with MOSFET clippers and a FET recovery stage?

I though the Chili was the MOSFET boost? http://www.muzique.com/schem/mosfet.htm

I dunno for sure though. Jack's got like 5 different boosts attributed to him.
