LE Overdrive - Pastie Drive
« on: December 22, 2016, 02:14:40 PM »
Just finished the Pastie Drive from VIPFx. Good pedal. I like the presence and mid contour switches over a typical TS style pedal. A little on the fizzy side. Just a hand painted enclosure. It was going to be a project that my daughter(4) was to help paint but once the enclosure was done she chickened out....so I got to paint it...funny it still looks like a 4 year old did it! It's all good. This one will have to grow on me.

That is a sick paint job. I really dig the Paisley Drive.

looks really good and the colour scheme works very well with the knobs and everything.
I build pedals to hide my lousy playing.

Ok, this is crazy but I just noticed that the down position for the mid contour is the same as the up position on the original pedal. So my pedal is down position is the pushed mids, center is scooped and up is somewhere in the middle. The commercial pedal is the opposite. Anyone know if this is how it is supposed to be or have I made a boo boo somewhere?

To clarify...my pedal is mid pushed when switch is up, therefore the opposite of the commercial pedal. Is this how it is supposed to be? the other positions seem to function as normal.

I'd say it's normal, I mean, as long as you have all 3 positions working, it doesnt matter if the toggle switch is reversed compared to the Wampler pedal! :)

Beautiful work by the way, I love it!

Well, that's what I was thinking...however since I can't leave anything alone I flipped the switch around and it functioned the same. Anyone else build this that can verify? I ordered the same switch in the build doc since it had to function a specific way.

It's the PCB layout.  Flipping the switch will not change a thing (as you've  already found out).
