Looks good Chris!
Have you tried swapping out the opamp with the Motorola metal-can one I sent to see if there's any noticeable difference?
Like I said, I never got around to testing the DIP8 chips to see if they were genuine.
Either way, it is an absolute monster. I'm definitely thinking of building another one to keep for myself!

So, he had two kits for the reverb that were listed yesterday. He sent me a heads up message that I almost didn't see in time. I got the last one!
I've been pretty impressed with the sound of this one for a long time and I've gotta say, I'm pretty surprised that it seems to be a pretty simple circuit based around the Belton Brick. I'm looking forward to digging into this one for sure!

I got the other one! Thanks for putting this on my radar :)

Nice!
I also ordered a used one from Guitar Center that's supposed to be delivered today. Did it before I knew there were going to be any of these "kits" listed. Figured I could open it up and take a crack at tracing the circuit myself. It'll definitely be easier now having an unpopulated board to look over. I'd be happy to share some detailed gut shots of the original if you're interested......

Screw it, I bought one.  ;D  I made an offer of $60 and it was accepted.

Nice!
The last batch he had listed were up for $60 as well. I grabbed two!  ;D

Yeah, I'm not sur how many he's had. When I bought a couple of them on Monday, there were still two left and the new listing started with a quantity of 10.
I figured it was probably a buy-out situation.....

I posted about these after buying a couple for myself the other day....
The seller listed more of these. Looks like the price went up $10 from the previous listing but still not too bad if you're interested in having one.

Yeah, I saw your post and contacted the seller. He sent me that image. Sometimes it's best to go straight to the source :)

I sent him a message asking if there was any chance he had something like this for the Cadavernous too but never got a response.....
Maybe I'll give him another shout.

Is this helpful?

That's awesome!
Did you get that directly from them?
I recently picked up (and posted about) a partial Whetstone Phaser kit from a seller on eBay.
He recently listed more of them and I wondered if maybe there was a sale of unused parts when they went out of business....?
Would love to get my hands on something like that for the Cadavernous too!

I know. I was looking around a few days ago and couldn't find much of anything.
I'll definitely be sure to post some good pictures here once I get it.

Well, I have no idea what's under the hood on this one but I'll be finding out soon. I finally decided to pull the trigger on one so I can see what's going on in there. I'm hoping to be able to trace the circuit and see if it's something that would be (or could be made) DIY friendly.
I'll post some updates here once I have a chance to look it over a little bit...........

Well, the info part didn't last long!   ;D

Now I'm just keeping my fingers crossed for any help with the question part.....

General Questions / Re: Finishing an enclosure
« on: February 07, 2021, 12:49:21 PM »
I'm sure there are other things out there that would work well too but I'll just throw this out there.
I've had pretty good luck using this as a primer / base coat:

There are some spray paints that claim to be paint & primer in one but this stuff is formulated specifically for use on aluminum.
I just make sure the enclosures are super clean before getting started and they usually turn out pretty good.
