This board-friendly way-back tone machine is ready to rock.

It started in 2012 with the Caprid. The idea was to make a full-size recreation of the legendary "Ram's Head." Knowing that there are actually four different versions of the circuit within the enclosures from the '70s, Wren and Cuff decided to make a "best of” combination of those circuits to capture what was special about each one.

For the original, they used a recreation of the original "3003" one-layer PCB, carbon comp resistors, big tropical fish capacitors and, of course, the mega big original-style muff box. After many, many, requests, five years later, they have made a "Small Foot" version of this fat-monster tone machine.

For practical reasons, the designers had to sacrifice some of the neat features of the first Caprid in order to fit the circuit into the pedalboard friendly 125-style box of the Small Foot. So does it sound exactly the same? No, it does not. If it did, what would be special about the original? However, it does sound pretty darn close.

On the Small Foot, Wren and Cuff used quieter, metal film resistors, standard-size metal film and ceramic capacitors, as well as a smaller (duh) PCB in order to fit into the box.

The sound is buttered nails. It can be violin smooth and sustaining, but can be raunchy and drivey when you roll the distortion knob back. Med-heavy mid-scoop, heavy saturation on tap.
