Obsessive Tone Master
« on: September 10, 2016, 08:53:12 AM »
Another unusual build. This is the Obsessive Tone Master... A couple of Matt's pedals re-housed. Which is something I don't normally do, especially a commercial one in there, hence I have no problem sticking an OCD logo on the front.

Anyhow, another green wire special! Signal goes into a Fender tone pot, then a Range Master clone (Mullard-tastic!) into the OCD. He does the BFG thing of running the tone really low, then pulling it back with the treble booster then into the OCD for the distortion. But all in one box and on one stomp.

Another homerun! incredible wiring again. What kind of wire is this and where do you get it btw.? and while we're at it, what kind of ribbon wire do you use?

I wonder what advantage mounting pots on the component side has. It might safe a bit of vertical space, but that wouldn't be an issue when they would be mounted on the solder side either. Seems like a waste of space to me. they even had to go with standup resistors..
I build pedals to hide my lousy playing.

The wire was NOS 0.6mm Eagle copper single core. We bought about 6 100m reels of the stuff and I don't think you can get it any more.

The ribbon is a similar story, again it's some very high quality NOS stuff that we got from a guy on here. I think we got a couple of reels.

They'll last us for years... Not sure what we'll do when we run out.

Damn that's a nice build.  The buss wire alone is pure artwork.

Very very nice.
I'm really curious about the sound you describe!

As clean a job as it gets. Superb!


Grey jacks? that's a new one to me.

Neutrik NYS229 jacks now have grey micas not yellow, slightly thinner too.   Been like it for a year or so.

The built in tone control is a great idea. That would be a great addition to an octave pedal
