Warhead and Wah
« on: December 19, 2012, 06:17:53 AM »
Warhead.





and a Weener Wah.
Has adjustable Q, a switchable buffer and a 'dirty' boost



This one goes to James Cruickshank (Cruel Sea, Tex Perkins)
He gave me the shell and is stoked with it!

Nice! 8)
Love the colour co-ordination, very tidy guts with purple wiring ftw!
Did you paint that warhead pcb or use some freaky fossil substance to make it???

 ;D Just good-ole rattle can paint. The red one has a blocked nozzle so it's a splatter machine.

nice builds, any particular reason for the unconventional jack arrangement on the warhead?

Thanks, two reasons; a) the pedal will sit at the lower left of my board and b) there aren't many options to fit that board into a 1590BB. :P

That won't mean much to the non-aussies here, so I'll pipe up!  James Cruickshank?  Cool, good job!

Cool stuff for sure! I noticed there is no lamp/LDR cover on the Warhead, did you remove it for the picture? The placement of those LDR's is a work of art by the way.....

Thanks for the kind words ;D
I polished a little circle on the inside of the enclosure lid directly above the light bulb, at the moment I'm playing it without a sheild at all.
I used the lid of a Stelvin Closure wine bottle cap as a light sheild while I dialed it in. It fits perfectly and is quite shiny on the inside. I must admit though, I'm not sure how much of a sonic difference it actually makes to have a light sheild. I suspect the angle, values and proximity of the ldrs is more likely to have an effect... I'm going to do further experimenting. :-\
