The first example of an ‘antique radio’ Steampunk-by-default housing to grace this list is Mr Ugly’s Ring Modulating Oscillation Distorter. According to him: “It's got five oscillators, a circuit bent Ibanez Distortion Pedal with body contact bends, and a passive ring modulator all housed in the body of an antique radio.
“All three things can be used separately, but in conjunction with one another they sound pretty rad! Beeps, tweeps, grinds and waves of things! The oscillators and the pedal run off 9v power supplies. Boss adapters with a daisy chain is what I use, but the pedal can run off a 9v battery if needed.”
