true analog ring / balanced
the early prototype for
version of the mingrod.
this is a real analog passive
ring modulator made with hand matched components for
minimal signal leak, though it does still leak a bit.
one side has the source and carrier inputs and the
other has the output. though the input and output are
interchangeable. being a passive design you may need
to increase the level of quieter signals to match the
other one you use by adding a pre amp, distortion pedal,
channel of a mixer etc... you may also want to boost
the output depending on your intentions. using line
level instruments are ideal. the transformers on the
input and output allow it to take high volume levels
and distorts nicely i think.

there was another one of these
sold - but it was unpainted.
