Return of the King
« on: September 01, 2022, 06:53:35 AM »
No this is not a LOTR themed pedal, although as a massive Tolkien fan since I was about 10 years old, middle earth themed pedals was my back up to Marvel. After a conversation with @benny_profane this became a necessity and headed to my board.
We all know what the DMM is and what it does. THE analog delay, the king of BBD. No mods, 24v center positive, all killer no filler. I measured 8 different 100kb pots to get a 100.8k resistance for the maximum delay time with minimal noise. Got it dialed in and it's sounding lush and super quiet on long repeats. It's a tight build with not a lot of room to work with. I went with true bypass wiring instead of the stock wiring because I didn't want the preamp active at all times.
I managed to fit it in a tayda 1590BB2 by adjusting the drill template for the jacks. UV print on matte black with my boi Loki the wielder of the mind stone. I have one more build in the queue so hopefully soon I can get to that as well.

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

Thanks, that means a lot coming from you, really dig your work! Lately I've been trying to work more with the negative space in the images and using the enclosure itself as part of the design.

Agreed, Chris wins the internet today!  The composition with the colors in the graphic emphasizing the name is just 8)

That's just sick on so many levels.  Damn that's a fine looking pedal.

I don't know John, I feel like I was just grabbing low hanging fruit on that one haha.

Says the guy with the laser engraved enclosures. I live in everyone else's shadow in the hopes to be at the level of everyone else I take inspiration from. Really humbling to have praise from people like you Gordy.

Holy crap man, that's gotta be one of the nicest pedals I've ever seen! Like it's not even fair. Awesome work as always!

Do you use the emboss of gloss options on the UV print or is that just the normal color layer?

It's the gloss varnish. They have a matte option but the emboss is not available anymore.

Nice one! The Total Recall is a great project, and this is great execution. Glad to hear it's dialed in so well.
