Is the low rider on the discontinued list? That was another one I've been waiting on to be back in stock

There will be a few more early Feb. and that will be the last batch.

I'm waiting on that polyphase. Can't wait for February. Winter in Detroit is my time to build, to cold for anything else haha

Hah, six phasers here, not including doubles (two doppelgangers, two infinitphases) and ones I haven't finished (DEFX Biphase). Edit -- seven, forgot the Tau Pipe module, eight if you include the 329 Aries Phase/Flange too.

Really nice builds, oldschool dymo labelling always adds class 8)
Dymo for life. I don't have the patience and or skill to do some of the amazing stuff some of the talented people around here do. My stuff is like the nerdy girl with glasses. Outside might not be perfect but it sure is pretty on the inside.

Super neat work, tasteful color choices, they look incredibly nice together as a set- thanks for sharing!

Agree - really like the enclosure colors.  Where did you get them - or did you paint them yourself?. NVM.  Missed you saying you painted them.  Nice job!
It wouldn't be diy to me if I didn't paint it myself. Plus after so long you get those cool looking pedals with chips and scratches like all those vintage boxes

I'm waiting on the edge of my seat for the polyphase from Brian to drop. That will go to the front of the build line the minute it gets released.

The past couple months have been crazy. in August I had carpal tunnel surgery. Kids started school in September and my dog got cancer and passed away at the end of September. to cope with the loss of my best friend I dove into building the past couple months to deal with it and keep my mind off things. Work has been crazy, the holidays and family and a road trip thrown in, I finished up a load of builds that were tested but not boxed. This week I drilled all the boxes, painted them, labeled, and wired up all the off board stuff so I'm doing a big group shot. not included in the Aquaboy deluxe and Dod 440 I did separate build reports on. Included is an Aion Rat, Fuzzdog harmonic percolator, fuzzdog phase 45, madbean octavia, guitarpcb small clone chorus, pedal pcb ghost echo reverb, Aion mastotron, 1776 rub-a-dub deluxe and lectric effects bad stone phaser.

Also in the second picture is a photobomb of our road trip cause. We have a npd (new puppy day) and he likes to chill in his crate while I build. I'll do a separate post on that later. next up is a naughty fish that will probably be my last build of the year.

Thanks, to my ears at lower delay time it's very similar to the aquaboy. Past the aquaboys max time it's much more pleasing compared to the aquapuss or other similar bbd delays. I play with a tweed style amp that's breaking up and most delays in front of it are too trebly and brittle or to dark and mushy. This thing is really balanced and it melds with my amp really well. And the modulation is a lot easier to dial in than my mxr or malekko delays I previously had. They were always seemed like they were all or nothing. Thanks for the perfect delay for my needs Brian.

Aquaboy Deluxe with xvive mn3005s running at 9v. Went together without issue. Calibration went quick too thanks to the awesome build documents from Brian. Dymo labels and hammered paint per my usual diy simple aesthetics. Sounds so good thru my tungsten buckwheat. so much better than my old mxr carbon copy. Im setting this one up for longer repeats and my regular aquaboy for slapback. such a fun build.

Flying wires from the PCB, going into my test rig, and that going to either the guitar amp, or the output mixer on my modular. The switch selects between either the device under test, or the signal probe.

For test signals into a module, I use either my Madbean Loophole, or patch up something appropriate from the modular.
I like your style 👍

How do you like to test pedals and calibrate them? I like to lay on the floor and listen thru headphones and dial them in. Amongst my spaghetti pile of cords and unboxed circuits I feel at one with the electrons. The warmth of my tubes glowing and the fan blowing from my two notes torpedo in my hair makes me hone in on those rock star tones and gives my builds more mojo. In all fairness, I prefer the headphones thru my main amp so I can dial them in thru my rig so they sound best thru my amp. It's my ritual and with the attenuation of the headphones I can block out the wife and kids!

Thank you guys, we lost of 19 year old cat last year and was not prepared to lose my baby boy at just 8 years old. It's weird working down there without him. It's getting better but I know it takes time. Hoping to get some fun builds in the next few weeks to keep my mind occupied.
