So, one day I was messing with a Tone Bender MkII on the breadboard, biasing it up for silicon transistors. I said to someone, “Hey, wanna hear my tone bender?”. The person replied, “I don’t give a rat’s ass about your tone bender!” What?! How rude! You don’t give a rat’s ass? ….. Wait a minute! Rat’s ass… the output circuit of a Rat distortion pedal… would it? could it? … so, I put the clipping section, filter, and output buffer of a Rat at the end of the Tone Bender circuit. Wow! Sounds amazing! I spent the next several days tuning up this circuit and the Katzenkönig was born.
That’s my story and I’m sticking to it.
Enjoy! Drop me a note and let me know what you think!
