On deck are a DLS, Fuzzfactory, Back '65, Klone and a G2. I think I am going to take a stab at a chorus pedal and some delays after that.
man you've got just as much as me on the go! Orange squeezer is looking good to! I see you ended up getting those watersides to apply nicely in the end.

Yeah...see what you have done. Like I said earlier, it is so much easier now given the amount of info and resources that have developed since my first go at building pedals.

I am still working on getting the hang of the waterslide decals. I just finished up my Rat pedal last night.

I need to start opening up one of your pedals every time I am ready to wire mine into the box though. I should just sit there and duplicate exactly what you have done. Seriously, your pedals look better than most commercial builds I have owned.

I don't have work until 9PM so I just spent all morning breadboard ideas I had. This one stuck out and I think has potential.


Ignore what I say in that video, I give each pot/cap/switch/ect the wrong names…

I am a bit worried though, because I am not sure you are wearing pants in that video! :P

Ha-ha, sorry to have called it out! :whistle:

That circuit seemed really cool though. I am not sure how people can keep up with a lot of components on a breadboard.

Are you going to eventually box that circuit up?

I'm eventually going to make a PCB.

Right now the signal is way too bass heavy for me. So I'm going to need to modify the filtering a little. Other than that I'm pretty happy with it.
It's simple 3 knobs; lag, decay, range.

I've been playing with my arduino lately so I may write some code so I can PWM different ramp shapes, i.e logarithmic, anti-log, linear, ect. Hmmm ::)

I'm probably be starting on the PCB sometime this weekend since it's pretty much done.

Very cool! Are you going to sell them when you do? If so count me in for one. :P

I'm not gonna sell any of these because I'm lazy :whistle: but I'll be happy to sell you one of the PCBs when I get round to ordering them.

I did a bit more work today and I'm pretty happy with it. I ended up using the tim escobedo idiot wah since I preferred that over the colours sound wah.

Here's the schematic if your interested and/or want to build one on perfboard.

I keep meaning to update this thread with the Univibe you made me. I absolutely adore that pedal. :-*

Oh yeah, sorry I was referring to buying a board. I can't let you take all the fun of building it away from me. :P You created a monster!
