ThisHeavyEarth Fleshrot v2.1.5 Distortion Pedal

At it's core was the Ampeg VH140c but don't be fooled, I couldn't help myself but to make a few [more] tweaks to better fit my taste. I have sat on this version for over a year when I started my amp and it’s what FleshRot should have always been. I found the circuit to be a bit darker than I prefer so first up was adjustments to the filtering. While I was in there tuning it, I have adjusted the tapers on the knobs as well to allow for more ease in dialing in your tone. I found the original amp to be a bit touchy on some the controls.

This is the one for you if you're looking for heavy death metal brutality to put in front of your amp or use as a preamp into your interface or power amp.

 

2023.05.30 Update: Some users have reported a high gain oscillation when the Gain is cranked with passive pickups. I had one guitar that was able to replicate this and it this has been eliminated in any build after this date. PCB Version 2.1.5
