Title: Gigahearts Doubel Ganger / Lovetone Doppelgänger
Post by: Hexjibber on December 08, 2019, 03:24:26 AM
Finally got this built after having purchased the board in 2015! Where does the time go??

It’s everything I hoped for from a phaser and more besides, love the range of sounds and LFO features! Almost had it boxed before I realised I had all the LEDs the wrong way round, d’oh! So glad I spotted that!

Etched with NaOH/Caustic/Lye and sprayed in metallic orange, really pleased with how the detail came out.

That is a box of perfection. Unbelievable workmanship inside and out. This should be in BOTY

If that’s an etched enclosure then you did a fantastic job keeping the lines super clean. What did you use to etch?

That paint color is fire too!

super clean etch and guts. I agree, this is a really superb phaser.

Thanks for the kind words everyone, really pleased with this one!  :D Struggling to find spare time to build at the moment due to young son so good to get something finished!

If that’s an etched enclosure then you did a fantastic job keeping the lines super clean. What did you use to etch?

That paint color is fire too!

I use caustic soda to etch, also referred to as lye or Sodium Hyrdoxide (NaOH), there's a link to my method in my sig if you're interested  :)
