Marc Says (via TGP):?
“The CogDisMkII was made from a batch of rare Japanese transistors I had gotten from Scotty Smith aka ProAnalog. The transistors were very high gain and bright but the circuit had extra treble filtering and negative feedback to compensate.”

“The CogDisMkII is angry and aggressive and never loses its biting fuzz no matter how low you turn the sustain knob. The transistors in it have their own personality, kind of an orangish-brown sound–gritty and thick, yet cutting and aggressive at the same time.”
