Rorschach? Distortion-fuzz -> Phaser combo. You'd never, ever want him as an enemy.

The Lightwah, mind you, that's pretty tasty :)

This looks amazing!  :o If you really want a clean etch nail varnish should work great. I usually use black model paint which works really well too. FWIW I have found that I like my grungy etches more than the prefect ones I've done. They don't have as much character and I am annoyed that I can see the oils from my skin on them, which is near possible to remove. For pristine etches I have started doing faceplates which I prefer...

Yeah it'd have to be something pretty screwy!


Nice looking pedal and great etch. Can I ask you where you got the files for this one?


Cheers man. You can find the layout over at diystompboxes.com just search for Lightwah and you should find the thread dedicated to it. The guy who designed it goes by the username Deadastronaut and he was enormously helpful and patient with me when answering my many questions. Check it out!

Cheers for the tip! I've been thinking about doing a faceplate so I might finally give it a go!

Trying to think of a circuit that would be suitable for Rorchach now.

Did you ever get your Clari(not) boxed up? If not, that's just crazy enough to fit...

Yeah that would be perfect but I've already started the design for it. Damn.
