Thanks everyone, really happy with the end result of this one. More to come, got a looooong list of builds I want to get through!

Build Reports / Coda Effects Black Hole
« on: March 29, 2020, 04:10:00 AM »
Seem to be spending more time indoors of late here in the UK for some reason so I’m rattling through the builds!

Here’s a Sunn Model T preamp from Benoit at Coda Effects. Has some nice crunchy overdriven tones and you can dime the gain and let rip into some sludge doom! I also tried a Rat before it because SunnO))) and is probably what a lot of people associate with the amp that the pedal is based on. I played a chord for 4 minutes and 42 seconds whilst meditating on humanity’s inexorable decline into chaos so I think it works as intended!

Reverse etched and painted black then I found this cool ‘hologram’ glitter spray for some added cosmic vibes!

Looks good! Deadendfx has a pcb for the schumann pll fuzz section called the grimafuzz. Its a fun project.
Ah sweet! Didn’t realise that! Thanks for the heads up, that one is definitely going on the list!

Nice build !!! Those pesky on on on switches are what are keeping me from building one T_T
I had an issue which I thought was the switch but turns out I’d been supplied a wrong IC, once I swapped that it was all good. I got my switch from Banzai and then another from LoveMySwitches if that helps at all? Can dig out the links if you need them

Hullo!  :) Been ages since I posted (or had anything to post), hope everyone is well out there!

Well, one good thing about all this is plenty of time to catch up on pedal builds! This is based on the EQD Data Corrupter which in turn is based on the Schumann PLL for anyone not aware. It's pretty bonkers but fun, I liken it to a POG on crack! The fuzz section is awesome, I'd have that just on it's own. It can be really musical though, it's not just unusable random weirdness!

Decal and clear coat for this one, pics:





Did a video too for anyone who is curious about this one;

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  :)

Wow I just finished the Doubel Ganger and thought that was pretty comprehensive in terms of knobs to play with, this is next level! Great build!

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.

Build Reports / Spaceman Effects Gemini III
« on: August 17, 2019, 02:05:48 AM »
Spaceman really do love their weird resistors (and other parts to be honest). If you ever look inside their pedals, it looks like someone just grabbed parts at random from a salvage bin, completely random assortment of wattages, brands, tolerances, etc.

Indeed! I don’t normally subscribe to mojo stuff of that sort but this time round I thought I’d go the whole hog! I loved the sound of the original in demo vids so thought I could do worse than stick to listed values etc. Nice to build something a bit different every now and then!

Have to say though, the workmanship inside their pedals is first class

Very nice!  You've got the 'distressed' look just right.

What are all the toggle switches controlling?  Is it all gain controls for the different transistors?

The two lower ones are for the transistor sets so for example you can switch the germ to higher gain and the silicon to lower then blend to taste, it’s a pretty cool idea. The upper toggle is for the germanium side only and changes the direction of the tone sweep, I haven’t played around with this much yet though

This is amazing dude! As always your builds continue to set the bar, great work! I do love me a Tonebender as well, despite playing a few I’ve only actually built a TB3 so far, would I get much mileage from doing some earlier versions do you think?

Build Reports / Spaceman Effects Gemini III
« on: August 17, 2019, 12:39:34 AM »
Here’s my latest build, the Gemini III by Spaceman, built on Deadendfx ‘Fuzzimile’ board.

I’d like to say it was an easy build but I reality was one of those where nothing went quite to plan! Also lots of oddball components, to me at least, things like weirdly specific resistor values (21.5k?) and less common cap values. I stuck to the BOM though, as always if something is worth doing...

Tried my best to get transistors in the spec’d range and the voltages were as they should be so think it worked! Sounds great I have to say.

For anyone not familiar its a germanium and silicon fuzz with a blend pot to mix the two plus some switchable gain options. Loads of sounds in there so need to have a proper play with it.

The etch isn’t my best so I roughed it up a bit with wire wool to try and give it a worn in look haha!

That’s a cool etch, the distressed look is great! Really like the design and layout you’ve used, winner all round!
