You had asked about the Cigbooster. I've never made any demos because it's so much more subtle than a fuzz pedal. I just finished a new batch (the first batch sold out), so if you are interested in purchase, go to Thanks! Dennis

Just listened to you audio of the hack job sounds good to me. Sounds a little like an asian type instrument also because of the tin for the bridge, but I like it.
