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

1590B optical phasor!

Here's an interesting one.. fx90b. It's similar to a phase100 I think

Well, there are definitely more DOD projects coming including some of the stereo ones (I already have one ready to prototype). But, like I said the Giveaway boards need to be more on the beginner to intermediate level builds.

I'm digging the fixed Wah idea (actually something I had been thinking about). I'd like to put a Wah in a 1590B with expression pedal input option. But, there's a problem with trying to make an expression pedal pot simulate the "ICAR" taper in a Wah.

Distorque Pitch Incinerator. I'm surprised how rarely people build this circuit considering how unique and awesome it sounds.

I would also be excited for a simple ring mod and I happen to have a friend's borrowed moog ring mod open today, so here are some pics to show the complexity level for those who may not have seen one.

A simple bass/mid/treble tonestack with a single opamp to make up any gain lost.
That would be useful. I also use these standalone hpf and lpf alot. It does use a 100kA dual gang pot but I don't think those aren't too difficult to find

I recently built a Korg MS-20 VCF on vero that's powered by +9v and has a low parts count. Great LPF, neat resonant frequency. Not exactly a cocked wah, but in a similar vein...

The aforementioned Vorg Warp is basically a cocked wah/fuzz hybrid.

This sounds really cool

Yeah I've messed with a couple of MS20 designs. That's a good contender.

Isn't this sort of like picking out your own Christmas present?

Another vote for some sort of filter. I'd find a Baxandall or HPF/LPF combo more useful than a cocked wah, personally.

Or, a no-knob HM-2 with everything set to max (...maybe add a volume knob).

I'd suggest an EM Drive except I haven't managed to make one that didn't sound like a fart in a jar....

Deadastronaut's X-Fuzz is killer, btw.
