Reverb Deluxe (1776 RADD build)
« on: October 29, 2014, 06:47:15 AM »
Recent build of the 1776 RADD. Gotta say I was really surprised at how much I like this pedal. I had concerns that I would not like the slight modulation inherent in these reverb bricks. Guess I've gotten spoiled by the reverb in my vintage Super Reverb and thought I might not like this. Boy was I wrong.

This thing sounds great. I read that some builds had oscillation issues using the 250kB duel gang pot for the decay so I subbed in a 100kb. Works perfect for me. Nice sweep and no issues. Honestly it sounds good at all settings. The tone control covers a nice range but doesn't get brittle.

Great pcb and an easy build. Artwork designed in Photoshop and acid etched then lacquered. NOS Rogan knobs. The board was designed for mounted pots but I wanted to use a different layout for the artwork.

Layering this on top of the Super's reverb and a touch of delay is a magical sound. Very happy with this.

That looks AMAZING. Seriously one of the better looking I've seen. If I were to see one on a store shelf I would definitely plug it in and try it!

The low profile knobs are most excellent. Really like that build.
