Here's a cool pedal pcb company that does cool stuff like using tons of PC mount components that would normally be wired in. And they have some pedals that you can modify to send CV's and such!

the mutron clone is called the "meat sphere" (i have no idea :?: ) And it has PC mounted rotary switches (which is awesome), along with pc mounted pots... ive never put it together, but apparently its pretty spot on, and from the looks of it, definitely the easiest way to build your own mutron 3 clone.

and dont forget to build the effects loop into it.... jerry didnt have one, but i think he would have really gotten some use out of it.

nope the Lovetone Meatball was based of the Mutron III but is a different animal.

if you think the Mu3 is expensive, check out what these go for!

I got mine for $40! :peas:

He was only asking $20, but I gave him extra. This was about 10 years ago, before they became lined with unicorn fur or Jerry sweat or whatever it is that justifies the price.

I used it last night, actually! These should become youtube clips within a few hours.
