Mum's old school Vibrator

Gotcha. 8)






Yes I had some fun doing the artwork for this.



The 'BigNoise knows what women want' is a P take of a old Miele (yes the white ware company...) add from the 60 or 70ties or so that was as iconic as the "Fender. You wouldn't part with yours either." Only that the white ware companies slogan was "Miele knows what women want". Probably the first feeble or accidental try of "sex sells"... :o

Classic old school Univibe on Harbinger board, with a few extras thrown in:
Foot switchable Vibe to Chorus (labelled 'mild' or 'wild').
Also added a booster based on Bacon Bits schematic onto Chorus channel as I sometimes feel that when switching between Vibe to Chorus the later can do with just a little more kick to just feel right. So with the booster added on Chorus only I set the Vol to be right for Vibe and then adjust that a smidgen more to Chorus setting to give it all the ladies and me want, if you know what I mean...
The boost knob is labelled 'extra mild' on side and is usually set and forget.

Also added the three position cap switch mod (labelled 'voice' on top side of enclosure).
To stay with the theme I labelled the buffer 'soft' and 'hard'. The usual 'Speed' and 'Intensity' labels fitted just fine...

And true bypass relay switching is called 'not tonite'.





I added a light shield after taking the photos however I think it won't make much difference with the LDRs pointing directly at lamp.
Sorry about slightly blurry shots, it was getting late and daylight left me, it was a long day, so maybe not tonite, honey....  ;)

No worries Alan... we're grown up enough (aka old...) to have a good chuckle about things, me missus is just fine and having had a good laugh about it too...

Pedal building is like the opposite of sex.  All the fun stuff happens before you get in the box.
