Distortion Gesamtkunstwerk! i know ;
it IS a little bit confusing and unusual and too
much informationon on first sight ! - forgive me -
i think artistic , ha ha . i
love conceptual art as much as
improvising with happy incidents . i do everything myself : from circuits to boxes , drawings to websites , from testing to
shipping; because this is my baby and i
enjoy every single step
of the process. you might have to wait some time for your ma-
chine,because i dont want to grow bigger and become what im
not : - small industry - and at the end of the day spend
the day with what i love and always did:create playfully and
inspired by the magic of the moment. u may not choose
spend a lot of
money on one thing. you may prefer to buy
two or three things instead and sell them again. i under-
stand because i am just like you . please consider that
handmade one-ofs (unica) take much more time
than printed circuit boards (pcb) . they sound
and feel different. I m building them on
purpose the very old - school
hand-wired - point to point, w/
extra bold solid core, high
quality long lasting
parts & silver
fine fluxxies from the magic pot . cooked in my electric kitchen .
how can it sound natural,
if it isnt done naturally ?
is all through pure analog
( discrete ) transistor classA design; point to point free-handwired (no pcb) ,
wired 3D - similar to a handwired Tubeamp ,
mechanical bypass , high quality, unavailable or
ultra rare Germanium (Ge32) NOS Transistors , nos
Silicon ( Si14) Trannies and Germanium point-contact
Diodes from the last century and my private treasury ;
which took many years of research , purchase , comparison ,
learning , listening and collecting excellent and extraordinary
sounding components that help define these organic sounds .
all circuits are protected against Dc peaks and false polarity .
fluxmachines are hand made with time for detail.
with box-mounted potentiometers , switches and jacks .
hand - painted , laquered , drilled , sanded , carved
stamped , polished , tested , played , calibrated .
- made for the pedalboard - NO Batteries -
9V Dc center ground . use stabilized ,
toroidal power supplies for
best performance .
i've been onboard w/ torn for most of his 2+year fuzz
this one takes the cake. so satisfying to play.

guitar, baritone and bass. nick jaffe __________________________________
your pedals are great and you deserve all the accolades you
can get . things like the BirdBox will be polarizing
but i guess all art is , right? brett kingman

"Endlessly curious about the guitar’s sonic range, Harvey
Valdes plays with pushing its potential. Highlighting texture,
stretching time, and shaping tone he re-imagines the guitar as
a horn, an orchestra, a mechanistic roar. Recently, Harvey
was featured for the site, Guitar Moderne. His composition,
“Listen", was chosen as Editor’s Pick by Guitar Player Mag. And, his score for Utopians, which premiered at the 2011 @
Berlin Film Festival, had “one of the most long lasting guitar
improvisations since (Neil Young’s score for) Dead Man.” http://www.harveyvaldes.net
