Black Fuzz Box Guitar Distortion

By combining wood working, metal craft and microprocessor programming I hope to create machines that allow the user to control, modify and produce new sounds.

Some ideas in the works currently are: guitar style synthesizers, modular synthesizers, simple synth boxes, guitar & bass effects. All of which I'd like to present here as they are created.


Here is an interesting guitar & bass effects stomp box. Its enclosure is hand crafted from a single piece of maple wood which was painted with textured enamel. Aluminum trim on the top and sides help to provide electrical shielding as well as add to its cool look. (The interior of the box is also shielded).


I have designed this box so that "cartridges" can be plugged into the back of the unit and allow the user to instantly change the type of fuzz/overdrive that is produced. We are offering this new effects box with two cartridges; one cartridge produces a hard fuzz (hard clipping), creating a sharper fuzz sound and the second cartridge creates a softer, tube like fuzz.


The standard controls include volume, overdrive level, a true bypass footswitch and standard power adapter (size M) jack. You can use a standard 9V power adapter or 9V battery.


What makes this box interesting are the interchangeable cartridges which virtually transform the sound of the effects. Currently there are two cartridges available for this unit (as described above), with more being developed.

    Is axesynth still on sale?
    How much is it?
    Is it possible to buy it from japan?

  2. Hi,

    Yes, ElectroKraft became LunaKraft. Thank you for writing.
    The AxeSynth is being made again. It is possible to ship to Japan (I have shipped a few to Japan in the past).

    The basic anaolog AxeSynth is 600.00 plus shipping. Do you need MIDI? Or is analog ok?

    Thanks again for writing.
