Title: Echo Chamber (Dirtbabay and Rub-A-Dub content)
Post by: cooder on February 13, 2020, 12:25:45 AM
What took me so long to stick these in a box...!?!


I had the Dirtbaby lying around for quite some time, and finally it's in the box. Very very nice circuit, really impressed how it pulls of the BBD feel and sounds, great fun! Great job there Brian!
I'm glad I have a second pcb floating around for another project. Has just jumped up the queue a few notches...

I think Brian was thinking of discontinuing this, if you don't have one already I'd highly recommend it now. Finally.
And to add to the cavernous feel I added the good ol' Rub-A-Dub on a homebrew designed oshparked board. Love that reverb sound that this does.

Switching as usual courtesy of 1776 fx finish line relay boards (am I getting a frequent and endorser user discount by now, Josh...?). Just trying to twist the arm there... ;)
Laser decal with acrylic faceplate, my usual roll call these days.

Love everything about it. The blacked out insides are so cool. And the all red wire is a sick twist. I reminds me of those 80s movies where they have to cut the wire on the bomb and all the wire is the same color so they just pick one at the last second 😂 great job

Beautiful work, the dirtbaby is such a great sounding delay! I love that little reverb board, looks great.

Haha cheers... yes I will have a lot more red wire to use as I bought last June when I visited the US a 1000ft spool of smallbear 24 awg in red... amongst other bits and bobs because it was a good opportunity to carry it home in suitcase rather than paying the hefty shipping to NZ. Of course my suitcase got heavily security scanned and opened at pretty much every airport... LOL... but it was worth it... ;D

Cheers Jimi, here's the reverb board, it's just based on the Rub-A-Dub circuit and I made my own pcb with smallest possible formfactor, brick underneath.
