At least now every man can judge for himself, but at the time (2 years ago) it was still listed at hunderds of dollars at online second hand stores.
So hail to the Mojo Book Buster :applause:

Everyone feels they need it for the sake completeness. Prepare to be underwhelmed.

Most topic lines here at FSB are more valuable. Much more could be learned by reading through the archive on this site, or Geofx, or Madbean or Dirk's homepage. Or MarkM's folder at the Diy gallery. Or Mark Hammer's Ampage archive. or Amz/Muzique. ...or anything by Doug Hammond. ....or Bajaman..... .....Soulsonic.... ......or Boris..... ........GaussMarkov........ ..........Modman and Forrest Whiteside's CJam site.......... and MIctester of course.

The Boscarelli grimoire has no MOJO!

DId anyone figure out who Boscarelli really is? I always suspected it was a well known effects contributor(no one in particular).

I think the best part of the book is the parts were he goes through all different variations of the same job. I find the bit on attack and decay envelopes really useful. But yes not worth £150! or whatever it goes for

I think it was a bit of a mistake that they are dual supply

I used to own this book. I think it is a really good book in how thorough and organized it is.

There is little point in bashing it, the author deserves more respect than that.

I'll be honest that book couldn't be a better starting point for a beginner. It at least explains all basics and gets the ball rolling for anyone keen on doing a stompbox but doesn't have a whole lot of idea. Yes you could pick the schematics and aspects on how he does things to bits. But you see very few books done in that much detail. Most just sit back and assume that the other person knows all basic information. Thats fine for the more advanced but some people need a book like that to kick themselves along. I think its a great resource for anyone who likes building pedals.

I found some info on Nick on a law website.

Looks like he's not into effects anymore and is an engineering patent attorney. Much more money$$

I think his book is now making him more money than ever. He has successfully sued several websites that posted his book for download and was able to obtain lists of the people's IP address who downloaded it. I could see him winning against the sites but won't he have to get warrants against every internet provider to get the peoples contact info? However today most companies just hand that info over so they don't get sued too.

If you are going to download anything copyrighted like this use a tor browser. :!:

I wonder if he will go after this site as an accessory ;(
