Gigahearts Doubel Ganger / Lovetone Doppelgänger
« on: December 08, 2019, 03:24:26 AM »
Finally got this built after having purchased the board in 2015! Where does the time go??

It’s everything I hoped for from a phaser and more besides, love the range of sounds and LFO features! Almost had it boxed before I realised I had all the LEDs the wrong way round, d’oh! So glad I spotted that!

Etched with NaOH/Caustic/Lye and sprayed in metallic orange, really pleased with how the detail came out.

That is a box of perfection. Unbelievable workmanship inside and out. This should be in BOTY

If that’s an etched enclosure then you did a fantastic job keeping the lines super clean. What did you use to etch?

That paint color is fire too!

super clean etch and guts. I agree, this is a really superb phaser.

Pedal building is like the opposite of sex.  All the fun stuff happens before you get in the box.

Thanks for the kind words everyone, really pleased with this one!  :D Struggling to find spare time to build at the moment due to young son so good to get something finished!

If that’s an etched enclosure then you did a fantastic job keeping the lines super clean. What did you use to etch?

That paint color is fire too!

I use caustic soda to etch, also referred to as lye or Sodium Hyrdoxide (NaOH), there's a link to my method in my sig if you're interested  :)
