Current lover
« on: October 21, 2020, 09:54:30 AM »
When I was still building my confidence in more complex builds and taking the next step in harder projects I often bought 2 boards in case I messed up the board and could start over. I have a couple of those boards left over so here is the first of those projects.
I put this together the past couple nights. While everyone was sleeping I was blowing off steam with the soldering iron. I ordered some aluminum knobs and nos mn3007 from Smallbear. OG Storm from X-Men seemed to fit well for the sound of this thing. Love this pedal, my favorite Flanger by far. To me it's more musical and less a gimmick like a lot of the more metallic and overpowering sounding flangers. Hope you all are staying healthy physically and emotionally.

Thanks, I love the mistress sound. Its more subtle and chorusy than the boss, mxr or a/da. Doesn't get as extreme but that's what I like about it. It melds more with the signal instead of taking it over. Its warmer sounding than the more metallic sounding flangers. And that Storm image was a composite I put together of three different images. It was really hard to find an image that she didn't look like an 80s budweiser girl in the string bikini lol

Nicely executed. I do live that flanger. I was lucky enough to buy one the Brian built, during a pedal purge.

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

Looks great! I love the original storm but the next stage of her evolution with the mohawk is so awesome. As a kid I remember reading those Claremont stories and just falling in love with comics.

For me the apex of my comic reading youth was when spiderman got venom and then carnage. I used to love when deadpool would annoy parker too. The late 80s and early 90s had some great story lines in Spiderman and X-Men.

Sorry about derailing your amazing work to talk comics but I remember hunting comic shops for the Maximum Carnage series and collecting all of them. Same with the early 90s marvel releases with the hologram card on them. I got get to painting some Marvel........

There was one guy I knew in one school who read American comics. (They were very, very expensive, here in New Zealand, and book shops don't carry them.) So all my exposure to these characters was through shows like Xmen: Evolution (oh, and a Superman book Dad bought that had a handful of issues ranging from the 30s to the 70s.)

Always liked Marvel more than DC, the characters seem more human and relatable. (That explanation in _Kill Bill_ about Superman, and Clark Kent being Superman's critique on humanity... weak, useless... while in, say, Iron Man, yeah Tony definitely has issues, but he works through them like a normal person.)

To stop the derailment, verra nice box o' bits! :)

Awesome build! I agree with your appraisal of the sound.  In my opinion, the EM is different enough to be great in it's own right and doesn't really have to be compared to other flangers.
