I missed an older one for $85 in BST a week or two back. This'un is newer and greener and pretty much the same price, so I'm hyped!

Kemper in. Big learning curve on this thing but it sounds great.

What amps were you using before the Kemper? What models have you loaded up so far? Have you paired it with a power amp yet? I’ve yet to see a band use one live so I’m very interested in the response they have with different power amps.

Before I was using a Peavey Windsor 100. I've mostly been using Diezel VH4s and JCM800s. I don't have a power amp. If I decide that playing live is a thing that is gonna happen I'll either run direct or grab some active PA speakers.

First hour or so playing with the Echosystem, just going through all the different presets in single mode and I'm really, really impressed.
Coming from the Nemesis which already sounded great and had a wealth of features, I do like the lack of menu diving, not needing any cables to unlock the full potential of it all, but that's a small thing. The sounds are crazy good, even things that I don't usually like such as filters and "ambient" delays have some great settings. Just started messing around with dual parallel mode and I'm getting the feeling this thing will be on the board for a while.

It wild, it coo', I'm into it.

Hey, I finally made a thing.
Image
I've built a few kit pedals before with mixed results, but this is the first circuit I breadboarded from the schematic, modified a bit, drew a perfboard diagram for and assembled. It even (mostly) worked from the first try, simply amazing :lol:
Definitely a confidence booster.
It's just a Bazz Fuss at heart, but I'm very happy that it A) works, and b) sounds neat.
So it's actually two circuits on one board, because the right footswitch sends the output from circuit B into circuit A (making a Buzz Box).
The toggle on the right switches between silicon diode and LED. The left two toggles switch between a single transistor or a cascaded two-transistor Darlington pair for each circuit. I'm sure there is some fancy switching method I could have used in order to apply that to both circuits, but I couldn't brainstorm it. It's a 6-transistor BF :lol:

Sounds pretty badass for something so simple. I could ditch the volume knob altogether, or really add a booster to the single-circuit mode. It's about unity gain right now. Maybe next time.
I bent some scrap steel for the enclosure, and stained some plywood. Didn't have the patience to wait for the spray finish to dry, so instead I wrapped it in gauze, dumped alcohol on it and hit it with a blowtorch.
Protip: don't use this finishing technique as close to your garage door as I did.

Also digging the charred, post-apocalyptic look of that DIY fuzz. The Xvive Sweet Leo overdrive is currently $19.99 prime'd via Amazon, so I grabbed one. I'm fairly impressed with their Memory delay (also relatively cheap from the same source at the moment) and enjoyed the Wave phaser, so this seemed like a wise investment. I'm still somewhat on the fence about adding either a Red Llama or PLL clone to the collection next ... leaning slightly more toward the first of the two.
