Harmonic Trembler and Reverb
« on: September 05, 2017, 06:19:20 PM »
I went all out for this one and I love everything about it! The first half is a cardinal tremolo which I believe I received from Josh as a pif last Christmas! Thanks! Sounds great, if you're thinking about it stop thinking and build one already! haha. The second half is a tenebrion reverb. The enclosure is a steel enclosure I got a while ago I think on ebay but don't ask me where because I don't remember. Anyway the steel was a pain to drill especially for the jewel lights and foot switches but... totally worth it. I even specially ordered knobs for this bad boy. I used optical switching on the footswitch and the cardinal indicator is also a rate indicator.

Awesome Luke!

I have these two finished circuits as well that are not boxed yet and was considering doing something like this.

I know it's typical to run trem>reverb but I was considering having a switch to be able to reverse the order. Did you experiment with that at all?

I did not but a switch would probably add something. I wonder if it would be cool to add reverb just to the wet signal of the reverb as an option

Looks great! The Cardinal really is the best trem I've heard.

Yeah I think trem to just the reverberated signal would be cool.

Very very nice work once again!!

Super cool build...love the red on black...that box is screaming triple Rat, but TremVerb is cool, too  8) Trem is about the only thing I've ever liked putting after reverb, if you get all antsy in your pantsy one day, I would definitely recommend cramming an order switcher switch in there

haha yeah it does kinda scream rat variation. I may shoehorn an order switch in there though the steel is a pain to drill. It's kinda nice to have a pedal with some actual weight to it though, it just feels so much more solid.

Looks great! I've got both of these boards but haven't started them yet. May have to bump them up the list.

I have a bent steel wedge I wanna throw a fuzz into, but I think have been putting it off due to not being excited about drilling

When/if the zombies come, my small box Rat could be on the short list of melee weapons, it would outlast us all, for sure
