    Got 10 UBANGI STOMP Drive boxes in stock ready to ship for Rocktober https://www.thenocturnebrain.com/collections/pedals/products/ubangi-stomp

    thenocturnebrain.com's UBANGI STOMP, the Gretsch guys answer to versatile overdrive. Light transparent drive to medium blues singing sustain, to full corpulent wall of crunch and sludge.

    UBANGI STOMP™ - in Aquarium Tank metallic
    You asked me to bring it back, so its coming. a "gritch'stortion" pedal for those who like surf AND turf with their gretsch or any twangy guitar in general. I've even heard of strat and offset players praising heaven with it.
    This one is simple.. take a late 70's White Label bud box R*t pedal & tweak its values and components so when you turn up your old fullerton era amp or vintage brit plexi, you can keep the inherent twang and jangle of your tele or hollowbody gretsch/guild but
    harness that grindy tube clip at decent volume.

    I'm upping the boutique ante' of course using silver mica,tantalum caps, metal film resistors, as well as switchcraft jacks for a solid american build. There's an internal trimmer for controlling gain on the low mids end (you can flatten the low mids nicely or snark em), and a socketed *vintage 60's NOS Metal can LM308AH Operational Amp (pre-dates the plastic chip version and its cork sniffing qualities are sweeter IMO).

    There's even a position switch inside so you can chose Missionary or Pagan position! :) Missionary is classic tight compressed response (symmetrical clipping) and Pagan is unconventionally loose and uncompressed more bite (asymmetrical clipping) *

    You guys are killing me. I haven't even received my Mystery Brain yet and I'm already thinking about my next Nocturn pedal.

    I haven't played with the Ubangi yet but I will say that Mystery Brain is worth the wait.

    Thanks to Tony Sims' demo, I just separated myself from some money and ordered one a few minutes ago. Can't wait to try it out along side my Atomic Brain. :)

    Tavo's Rocktober 30 dollars off sale was hard to resist too.

    I recently decided to finally order a nocturne pedal, debates between the ubangi and the atomic, but went for the atomic. Excited to get it next month. Had the price drop occurred before I ordered, it would have been a much harder decision.

    Like tony said the mystery brain/ubangi combo is a great pair and hard to beat.

    Congrats, you'll love the Atomic Brain. Your initial choice was a good one as the Brain is where it all begins, and you'll soon find yourself never turning it off. It improves your total sonic spectrum in a way that IMHO, can only be truly appreciated when you hear it for yourself in a live situation. I watched many video demos on it before purchasing one, but none of them did it much justice compared to how much it truly improved my sound after I received and plugged it in for myself. I think others here had the same experience that I did in that regard. I use it primarily with my vintage Princeton amps, but it works great in front of my solid state Peavey Vypyr as well. Enjoy !!

    no baritone players here? Turn your guitar into a baritone like I did w my strat(heard in the link above). This guy, Jake Kelly will show you how for $13 basically.
