( http://www.smallbearelec.com/home.html ) and you can get all the info for the neutron filter at http://www.generalguitargadgets.com/dia ... filter.pdf which is a break down of the original mutron in a new layout
general guitar gadgets even sells the boards for the neutron filter. all you need is a little soldering skills and patience. i actully cloned my mutron and have an identical copy of my original. hope this helps. peace, waldo
exactly waldo...the new Haz Mutrons can't touch the originals. sure they're nice (and pricey), but place one of Jerry's Mutron's next to a new one, and there's an obvious difference in sound quality all the way round.
I just picked up a TC ELectronics G System, and I must say I'm VERY pleasantly surprised at the envelope/auto wah sounds it has. it blows away most of the floor pedals I've tried
