Meatball Envelope Filter
« on: September 27, 2014, 10:49:42 AM »
Hey guys,

I just finished my Lovetone Meatball clone on Alanp's board. That one is just awesome. Lots and lots of various tones to get out of. Also very nice with a fuzz in the send-return loop. I wanted to build it in a blue enclosure, but RS didn't have it in blue.
I had no problems building this, although drilling was nerve-wrecking and I drilled a few holes slightly bigger than needed. Also, I didn't make a drill template for all the jacks, which turned out to be really stupid. I had to use two types of in-/out types, because the big one didn't fit and two of the switched jacks hardly fit next to each other.
I have a feeling that the filter-whore-syndrome is infectious.

Thanks for the kind words guys.

GREAT to see one out in the wild :) Damn good job of it too.

Try a high impedance expression pedal in the Intensity jack!

I couldn't find any videos online that show the expression control and I'd really like to see what it does to the sound. Realizing that this thing has two exp ins definitely peaked my interest, and I love filters a lot.
great build!

Slick build. Very nice. Good choice of chickenheads, I used similar ones on mine.
Seeing your build made me realize that I've mislabeled the middle 2 switches on mine the wrong way around, having just boxed it up!

Gonna have to soak this in paint stripper on the weekend and back to photoshop...
