(Blue) Yellow Shark
« on: August 29, 2012, 01:07:06 PM »
I got this board from Jakefuzz in a trade. I've been distracted by other things since I have so many overdrives haha. I was planning on using the enclosure for a Deep Blue Delay build but it just barely didn't fit the drill layout. The paint is colorshift--looks like blue, purple, or green depending on the angle. I like it quite a bit; kind of like a super dynamic tube screamer sound--has a nice snappy top end. Really feels like you're playing through the pedal instead of against it. Would be good for southern rock/blues stuff. I like the tone control because it does more but has a smaller, more musical range than many other OD tone controls. I think the only overdrive left on my list to try is a Timmy.

Sweet man. Good to see this old board finally got some use! I really like the sound of this one too. After my Kingslayer I may build this overdrive up next. I would try tweaking with some of the diodes combos in this one maybe with some of the stuff Jon is selling with higher Vf like the OA126's.

It's what now? Spill the beans on where I get something like this! :D

Some sharks change their skin color. That might provide some inspiration for a graphic if you plan on adding one. :)

Black paint primer first. Doesn't take clear coating too well since light reflection is where all the color comes from
