The analog sound synth-y distortion is neat (IMO)!  I hope you do get a chance to check out the links I posted, as in addition to the cool sound you got, I also enjoy the “natural sound” and other options this technology could offer (Along the lines of Hoag, Opik, optical microphones, etc.).

That said, I still dig my Unifuzz that plugs two prongs directly to mains voltage!
