Cuckoo Byrds

Cuckoo Byrds was a band I had with my wife and our good friend Sasha.
We played some shows and recorded 8 tracks for a tape in 2011. 
Lisa and I moved back to California the same week we recorded... 
That was the end of Cuckoo Byrds.

Fractal Sound


* 1/4" output jack
* Banana jack out ( red = hot / black = ground )
* On / Off mute switch for each out. 
* Tone switch for the banana jack out. ( dark and full / bright and thin )
* Tone switch with knob for the 1/4" out. 

** This is a passive unit, it requires no power. Just plug in and play!!

*** I can also provide a pre amp box that GREATLY enhances the performance of the Forest. Not only will it boost the output signal of the Forest, but it also has a tone knob and a bias knob that turn the Forest into a beast!

**** 1 channel pre amp = $30 / 2 channel = $40
