new for 2011 the 'BILLY Brain small box & ATOMIC Brain in Raw Metal

The Atomic Brain
The Atomic Brain has an even newer look for 2011 & standard logo and color. A knod to the munsters dragula in Gold metallic (powder coated over 100% recycled heavy duty alum a box w/ a cool Vince Ray designed Brain in a Jar. Even transparent chicken head knobs that catch the glow of the Violet LEDs.

now at $245
9v DC adaptor jack (- tip boss style) only power supply avail at a nominal
charge (u get it for what I get it for $10)

Need to have your Nocturne Preamp more Psychobilly meets Honky Tonk??
then you might need the

aggressive and full tilt version of our Atomic Brain's "abby mode" this
uses a more modern opamp with preset bass cut. Most fender and vox style
amps will quickly go into a crunchy twang with this preamp at 3 oclock.
Its definitely a texas psychobilly freakout.

while this economical stripped down box is a half size hammond style enclosure with quick shot paint job in GRAPE'ZILLA with decals, I can assure you the heart of this preamp is still top quality components.
(metal film resistors in the audo path, xicon eletrolytics, switchcraft jacks, alpha pots, socketedopamp and heavy duty true bypass stomp switch). 9v DC adaptor jack (- tip boss style) and battery clip included.
 ((( gotta love the Gorilla's glowing Red LED stink eye! )))

$155 (current color: flatblack satin) shipped USPS priority ($13 stateside only, international shipping avail separately for $35)

both are avail. for purchase to the right on the drop down menu list!

If you would like the low down on the difference between the Dyno Brain, The Atomic Brain and the
'Billy Brain here is my explanation:

the Atomic Brain is a "live" pedal for those that keep their Dyno Brain on and would like a Boost mode or dual settings on the fly for soloing or to jump out of the mix with a band. the Atomic Brain is one preamp with a dual function, so there are not 2 eq circuits playin tag team elbow slams( my explanation of my brain seltzer and billy brain on at the same time).
The Billy Brain is based off the ABBY side of the Atomic but redefined EQ (I had to set Bass cut "on" since there is only a gain control) and the chip in the Billy Brain is different. Yes a full functioning RE301 Space echo is using a dual opamp (JRC4558) but my preamp is only using half of that or a single function and a low power one to boot so that I can goose the hellouta it.. if it gets tooo over the top then more definition needs to come into play and more treble isnt the answer in the Billy so I changed the chip.. it turns this vox 112 into a smoldering crunch box when dimed with filtertrons and crazy twang with 50s style fender pkups (ala tele and strat). The T'armond bridge is my favorite tele pkup because it is twangy but goes crunch crunch with the Atomic Brain and a bit more so with this Billy Brain
