Hereís what Iíve been working on (Pic Heavy)
« on: February 02, 2021, 06:11:46 PM »
There is a method to my madness. I work on a bunch of pedals at the same time, I order a bunch of parts and finish them one after the other. Itís much more satisfying I think. Now I just gotta find more space to put them. Here we go:

I bought these boards in 2016 for a fund raiser for some body. Itís a tap tempo set. The MSS will double and triple the tap speeds. The pedals are a wah, a phaser and a tremolo. The wah is kind of subtle but the phaser and tremolo are nice. Since they are a set, I decided to keep the artwork uniform and generic...
















This is the glass hole. The art is my goofy ass brother in law.






This is the collosalus, Iíve had this one for so long, itís stupid. With a 12v power supply, it sounds amazing. I think the build doc should say it has to be used with 12v and drop the onboard charge pump. I love it.





And finally, the low rider. Iíve had this one forever also.

At 12v it canít be beat. I listened to a lot of YouTube videos, it seems pretty dead on to me. I stead of a C500k, I used a C1m pot for the speed, it can go ridiculously slow.

I've got one in my de-bug pile (I've got a working one too), your convincing me to try and get it going with these mods.  Why 12V instead of 18V regulated down to 15V?

My collosalus (original layout) is still whiny. One day I might fix it... when the Flintlock fails to satisfy me :D

Jimi, nice collection of stuffs... was expecting more phaser, though, where's the NLC 329 phaser? ;)

Still super noisy. I tried a wall wart 18v and my Dunlop power brick at 18v.
