They rubb off all the numbers from the ICs in all their products. It is not a novelty.

Hahaha....

You can usually still read them if you look very very carefully.

I remember the same thing being done to the ICs in my old Tubescreamer - not hard to guess which ICs were in it though.

This is a big circuit - I don't think I'd fancy DIYing one of those. Maybe there is a large control section or something though. I am not that familiar with the unit.

Is this an overexpensive box just trying to hide it's nothing more than a tubescreamer-variation perhaps ?  :wink:

Yep. Often by wiping your fingertip across the top of the IC the moisture in your sweat "liberates" the number...

If not, it's time to look for PSU pins and common configurations...

Big Muff variation....

Putting all that stuff on it just makes some rogue want to do this:

It is some kind of epoxy material....  very hard.  I softened it up with some heavy-duty paint stripper and then slowly chipped it off with a dental pick.  A bit of hot air from a heat gun helped too.

My buddy used to work for [email protected] amps they would epoxy the entire PCB of their amps. The goop would harden and if you tried to remove it you would probably crack the PCB and componants. I guess when there are companies like [email protected] B00gie out there you need to protect your amp designs.

Thanks Jack for sharing. Good to know there's no goop that can't be undone  :thumb:
