well i've mentioned this on and off but the first few MuLove prototypes are done. it's nothing special. it's basically a mid boost with lot's of gain on tap if you need it. but it can also go super clean too.

I've been working on this thing ages. Finally worked all the bugs out and it's sounding awesome. Pedalization of the Sunn Beta Bass preamp, the SunnBeam!

Custom parametric mids EQ (Catalinbread VarioBoost clone) with soft touch switching in a one-off wooden/bent steel enclosure. Made it for a buddy and his band's name/logo is on the badge. The badge is 3D printed in resin and painted.

I'm going to redo the name badge as the screw holes were just a bit off and made the lower edge bend upwards, not to mention gashing the lower line of text with a screwdriver. But he's excited to use and they're going into the studio in a few weeks, so hopefully it'll be a useful tool in that process. Here's their Spotify link if anyone fancies a listen: https://open.spotify.com/artist/6vHP2UiHTuZKRBVhtx2nFe

I did it dry
and then sprayed a mist coat of clear over it to avoid blowing the glitter away.
And then I did proper clear coats over it
