Deep and Dark - "Cave Dweller"
« on: June 29, 2012, 07:28:56 PM »
Here's my "Dark Echo" aka "Cave Dweller. My apologies to Jack Deville. :-[ I designed the artwork before I realized he had a pedal by this name. It really suits this pedal. Straight up with only the 2n2 cap to brighten it a little. The funky transistor was the only one Tadya had that matched the specs for the board.
White water clear sanded led.

Artwork and type created in Photoshop. Used PNP to transfer the design for etching.

Really like this pedal a lot. Like it so much I bought a volume pedal just so I could so those dark, cool swells you can get with this. Build it! ;D

 :D Thanks very much everyone. It's a fun design Madbean! Thanks for all your hard work. Most of what I know about building came from obsessively reading and looking at this forum ;D

I love astronomy-themed artwork, but that's just a cut above. Really beautiful etch. Great job!
