DIY Electronics with Vaux Flores #4: the 24


Saturday February 3rd,         12-4pm.      $100 (includes the fuzz pedal)

So hey gang – another DIY electronics workshop from the good folks at
VauxFlores! This time, we'll be building a 24, which, for lack of
better description is one of those versatile fuzz pedals that has more
controls than a WWI-era biplane - allowing you to tune in just about
everything from a minor fizzle to a full-blown electric explosion of
64-foot long bee creatures (bees not included). It does some pretty
cool stuff – it sputters, it chirps and sans input it makes a pretty
good oscillator of sorts - provided you think that sounding broken is
cool. I do, but that's just me. It can also sound pretty un-broken at
other settings, and wholesomely thick on the ones in-between. And
while I may not be anywhere close to one of those guitar guys who get
a throng of fans drooling over their pedalboard after every gig, this
has been one of the most consistent boxes I've personally used in the
past 5 years. So there's that – not that you should take my word for
it. It can also be used with guitars, basses, amplified hunter horns,
electric buckets or any other instrument with an output intended to
exorcize the occasional vulgarian out of our highest office at
deafening volume. I make no claims that this approach will work, but
hey, some claim that Noriega was defeated by rock and roll... or was
it CIA psyops? Either way, whatever your intention, this thing may
just be the droid you're looking for. For sounds and more info, please
check out this site for reference and edification:

So logistics – the workshop will go from 12 PM – 4 PM and all
materials will be provided. No prior electronics experience is needed
and yes, you get to keep the pedal at the end of the workshop. Price
is $100 and we recommend bringing a guitar or any other amplified
goodies you might want to plug into your pedal for jamming and
socializing once complete.

As with previous VF workshops, we strive to keep the atmosphere casual, informative and friendly – so feel free to bring a snack and a story and hopefully we'll all leave as buddies at the end of the day. For this workshop, attendance will be limited to 5 and a small VauxFlores pop-up shop will also be on-site for anyone interested in taking home the rest of the family without having to solder it themselves.
