MXR Blue Box clone

Custom build of a MXR Blue Box clone. This early 1970s octave fuzz pedal is based on some pretty basic engineering causing it's pitch tracking circuitry to glitch at higher frequencies and jump wildly between octaves. Lots of unpredictable fun. Octave pedals repeat the incoming guitar signal an octave above or below. Hendrix loved them and Jack White wouldn't leave home without one.

The motif on the copper-etched fascia is from some graffiti found on the side of a truck in San Diego, California.
