Is there any way to get ahold of the boards for this, from Clinton or Dan perhaps? I'd build it straight away.

I'll get another set of boards on order!

What I've been doing when I put a few in an enclosure is thinking of a specific artist and what they would use as their pedalboard.  Doing that, you will have a grab-and-go all-in-one pedalboard solution.  Here is a few that I've done

Luna Obscura - Gilmour DSOTM inspired; Fuzz Face, Overdriver Boost, Uni-Vibe and Binson Delay

Kashmir - Jimmy Page inspired; Silicon Tone Bender, Phase 90, Modulated Delay, EP-style Boost and Marshall amp

Gypsy - Hendrix inspired; Fuzz Face, Octave Fuzz, Uni-Vibe and Marshall amp

Purple Reign - Prince 1999 pedalboard inspired; SD-1, DM-2, BF-2, OC-2 & VB-2

6-shooter - This one was just a challenge from the guys at stompboxparts to see how much I could shove in one box... it has a Rangemaster, Dumble-type OD, BMP-type Dist, Small Stone Phaser, Micro Chorus and Delay

Looks beautiful!  I've always wanted one of those too!

That's hot!  The local guitar store has a pink one that looks killer, but I know I'm not man enough to play a pink one  ;D ;D

Stellar work as always! Also, I can't help but notice the Mammoth marked pot in there.  :) Thought those would've all been used up by now.

Stompboxparts still has some on hand, especially in the not-as-common pot values.  Ross and Chris must be pawning all their old stuff off on me!  ;D ;D

Build Reports / Purple Reign

Long time, no build reports.  Here is what I just finished up this weekend.  This is a continuation of my pedalboard in a 1590DD series.

This is the Purple Reign.  As you can probably tell, this is inspired by Prince.  More specifically, this is inspired by his board that he used around the 1999/Purple Reign time period.  According to, his board was: SD-1 -> DM-2 -> BF-2 -> OC-2 -> VB-2.  Since these are all known DIY projects, I decided to make my take on it. 

I had the idea for this board for a while, but I had to do some thinking on how to implement it.  I had two main concerns in my head: 1) with 3 clocks and 4 BBD's in this box, would I have a problem with heterodyning and 2) how do I get around the 500 pin limit in Diptrace?  To get around the 500 pin Diptrace limit (without spending the money on the upgraded version), I split this into 4 separate boards.  The first set of boards has the SD-1, DM-2 and BF-2 on it, while the second set has the OC-2 and VB-2.  I'm not sure if this was the case, but I like to think that splitting these two boards up helped avoid any heterodyning and clock noise between the two circuits.  I was actually surprised when I fired up the first half that there was no issue with the DM-2 and BF-2.

All circuits are stock to what you would get if you built any of the DIY projects floating around for these circuits.  The BBD's are V3207's for the Flanger and Vibe, and a set of V3208's for the Delay (about 300ms of delay).  I added a stereo switch to select if the stereo out is coming from the VB-2 signal, or if it comes from before the VB-2 circuit, allowing some pseudo-chorus sounds when running in stereo.

How does it sound?  I think it sounds pretty good.  The BF-2 is good for that Purple Rain sound, and combining the SD-1 and Delay gives some really huge sounds.  All in all, its a pretty good and versatile board.  Personally, I would probably have something other than the OC-2 there, but Prince never asked me when setting up his pedalboard   ;D

I second Robert Randolph, he is amazing!

Theoretically, yes, thats what you need to do, but each time I've tried doing that, it never worked.  I attribute it to me not setting it up correctly the first time it fired up and never going back to check it out.

In the schematic/connections department or in the ATTINY programming?

In the first time boot up where you setup the clock/tapping.  I tried programming them myself and also ordered some from Bontempo.  The boards are in my "someday I'll get to this" pile....

Kick-ass video Dan!  You are a great player, you have a real knack for showing off the tools you use!

Awesome looking build!  You did a great job stuffing it all in there!
