Here's my Feedback Looper pedal I just finished last week. I got the layout from the Abandoned Circuits thread of course.
It all works great, just wish I got a different photo eye. I'll eventually replace it. It was also my first project experimenting
with water slide decals.

HERE IS A SOUND CLIP - MY BAD -

Starts with a simple Hip Hop beat from a Zoom drum machine-unaltered and the same beat for the whole clip. All I'm doing is manipulating the pedal:

Here's a pic of my circuit-bent Grilled Cheese pedal with a 'possible alternate' housing scheme next to it - silly. Elwood has dibs on the next one off the block, but I will try and make more. Also-I will do the mod to your existing Grilled Cheese for a modest price if you wish...trust me, you ain't never heard no fuzz like this shit. I was as surprised as anybody that a crap ass cheapo Dan-o could be made into something so, um, beautifully insane. Oh, yea, and I've found a way to make it midi-controllable, too. More L8R.

I'm so excited I got my first ever project completed!!! :dance: I even took the day off work yesterday to finish/debug the thing. It's a 5 loop looper. Not the most complicated thing to design, but there was a lot of soldering. Thanks for the help you guys gave me!

Hello Everyone-

I just finished working on this little labor of love. A unit built from Parasite modules made by http://www.thesquarewaveparade.com.
Pretty simple actually: 3 Falters and a starve pot. Works as a CV source and has CV input as well. Sound sample is pretty basic - just noodling on the box - no effects. Sounds amazing when coupled with other audio machines.

Further samples down the road.

Not finished, quite, yet as I'm waiting for my gf to finish the top of the enclosure, and I can't solder with the bulky bandage on my middle finger...

Enclosure from an old Walco FUZZ Tone Generator

The parts waiting to be put into the enclosure

The wire I was cutting when I lopped off the tip of my finger :facepalm:

And, the bandaged finger

The circuit is from one of those cheap Halloween voice changers. I'm going to put jacks where the microphone and speakers originally were, and add a gain control to control the amount of distortion and a true bypass dpdt switch. It has a mode switch to go from simple distortion to adding something between a flattened and perfect fifth to an octave down. I'm putting it together for my vocalist. On guitar, it's an extremely nasty, gated fuzz that gets cool old video game sounds with an ass load of fuzz with no sustain.
The circuit is a simple 386 chip based gain unit with some diodes and shit. I'll post a schem of it once I trace it. But, it's kind of a switchable cross between Tim Escobedo's Rambler (Rambla?) and Vedron Juratovac's Underfuzz and Smokey Amp

My humble attempt at pedal altering:
I started with an old Dwarfcraft TGD and painted it, then replaced the knobs and LED.

For the love of fuzz.

i've built a lot of crap over the years, but right now this is my favorite thing:

Image


fully circuit bent Casio SK-1. i have an LFO to add also but haven't had time to drop it in.

if you ever see one of these at a tag sale or whatever, and you don't mind a little careful soldering, get one! LOADS of sounds, and lots of 'easter egg' sounds where you touch this to that, turn a knob, then hit a button twice and whammo.... killer tone.
Got my A machines on the table, got my B machines in a drawer.

TweedBassman, that looks absolutelly sick! did you make the wood sides yourself?
I sometimes want to do something similar with my Sk-1. it does have a patch bay but it's plastic and ghetto.
