"The title is taken from an old poem, I can’t remember it all, or it’s title, but it goes "Wednesday’s child is full of woe; Thursday’s child has far to go." I realized that I was actually growing up and leaving my childhood behind me, and I was asking myself...What kind of man would I become?”
Mark Burgess - The Chameleons

 

I understand that nobody understands me, but I can’t be someone I’m not.

A newly released, Rowland S. Howard-esque pedal I just bought from Reuss Instruments in Denmark. "The ET-01 ’Evil Twin’ is a two-in-one pedal featuring a vintage correct blue box clone running into an equally vintage correct distortion+ clone. Both circuits featuring rare, vintage new old stock parts. The ET-01 features a number of improvements over the RSH-02. It’s now full ‘boutique’ construction, like all other Reuss pedals. This means hard wired switches and connectors etc. The ET-01 is built on the same circuit board as the new RSH-01s, but with a slightly different component count. The ET-01 features modern low-noise, low tolerance metal film resistors and we have added two capacitors to the blue box circuit for improved tracking and gating. We are still skipping the dreaded post-1977 ‘C13’ capacitor, to preserve that wonderfully textured and uninhibited sound of the earliest blue boxes. It’s still a wild and crazy beast – just a little easier to control.” aka - sick

This would be super tempting if I didn’t already have the distortion plus and the blue box.
I’ve been haphazardly and only semi intentionally trying to put together Rowland S. Howard’s rig for a few years now. Mostly when I picked a jaguar as my surf guitar because he played one.
Now I just need that mxr equalizer and a fender twin. Neither of which I have any immediate plans to buy.

Oh sick, I’d love an original distortion+..saw a used one quite awhile ago and had no idea its worth or sound until I learned Rowland used one. Sounds like you have a pretty awesome rig going though!I didn’t know he also used an MXR eq..is it the black 10-band?
