Green Hocker

This is a clone of the Earthquaker Devices Tentacle – http://tagboardeffects.blogspot.com/2016/11/earthquaker-devices-tentacle.html

Note that there are no pots on this one, just on and off so I decided to make a feature of the (green) LED by putting it in a bezel. It looked naked otherwise.

When it came to do the artwork and theme I wasn’t getting any inspiration from tentacles or underwater sea creatures.

I did some research and found out that it is based off a Dan Armstrong Green Ringer pedal. Then I discovered that Frank Zappa used one of these built into his guitar.

So, with the ingredients of “Green” and “Zappa”, I present to you the Green Hocker:

 

Green hocker croakin’
In the Pygmy Twylyte

Crankin’ an’ a-coke’n
In the Winchell’s do-nut Midnite

Out of his deep on a ‘fore day run
Hurtin’ for sleep in the Quaalude Moonlight
