That thing is fucking awesome fuzzonaut. My friend has a GIII (he got it pretty cheap) and I love it on the rare occasions I get to use it.

Cool builds on the previous page too, holy smokes! So many nice looking enclosure-ites.

This dual Schaller tremolo here turned out a little strange visually, I guess it's the closest I'll ever get to a patriotic pedal, with the red, white and blue. Wish I had mirrored the knobs maybe, but overall I'm happy with the layout and ease of use. Only small mods I did was add a 1.2m pulldown resistor, slightly increased input impedance (why?) and a switch on each of the depths to lift the ground, thus cutting out the valley of the wave for a hard-chopped albeit quieter trem. Not a brilliant mod as the Schaller is choppy (chopper-y even) enough already. Volume drop doesn't seem too bad. Transistors are BC170 with a BC109C at the end. Middle switch is for the trem 1 speed range, which probably should generally be set to fast because in slow mode the last 10-20% of the speed pot flattens out the wave and you just get volume reduction, esp with depth set high. That's the only obvious flaw so far, or well the range/smoothness of the speed/depth pots is not perfect, should have selected them more carefully maybe. Does what it's supposed to tho, which is being two asynchronous tremolos in one box to run both sides of my stereo signal thru.

Hey thanks, Frodog! The G3 is amazing, yes. I'll probably go for the G4 as well, one day.

That double tremolo is a cool idea - and it looks great too.

Here's some utility thing for a change: the Omnilooper, from Schalltechnik. I usually don't do kits, but this thing ticks a lot of boxes for me, so I even went with the deluxe package, including pre-drilled enclosure and faceplate. It is very packed and tight in there (BB2 enclosure), you even have to sand down one side of the bottom plate to make everything fit.

What does it do? Here's some blurb: "It consists of three effect loops (Inserts), two of which are equipped with filters (1x LPF/1x HPF) with -12dB/Oct. per Filter. The filters position in the chain can be switched (Filter -> Insert, Insert -> Filter, or Filter off)." There are also impedance and phase switches for the loops. Pretty nifty ... aaaand there's a bass boost at the end to round things off!
