Sorry for the humongous pics! Was able to make my second pedal of 2016 just before New Years Eve. After making a couple of Harmonic Percolator boards and loving how beautiful it sounds I really wanted to dust off one of these Superfuzz style steel enclosures and put the footswitch up high like a Superfuzz. Have done this before with a Dizzytone and an Earthsound Graphic Fuzz but both of those aren't inoperable and I love that enclosure.

BUT, I forgot how awful they are to etch. Late one night in the garage I etched it for about twenty minutes, once done I rinsed and scrubbed off the toner. Saddened by the lack of etch depth, I knew there wasn't enough room for the paint so I clearcoated it knowing it would be not what I had been planning. The next day I couldn't take it and decided to sand it down. Etched it again for about an hour and got some more depth, just enough for some paint. After letting the paint dry, I carefully started to wetsand with a block and started losing in some places. I then took some sand paper the ended up wet sanding the rest with two fingers. It was nerve racking but came out better and then I added more paint to the areas where I lost too much. So, it ended up coming out better but really don't think I can etch that enclosure again.

Other than wiring the pots backwards, the thing is alive. Pretty much fascinated with the HP at the moment and being reading all the old diystomp threads. For the germanium transistor, I have a good amount of random PNPs with short leads from an estate sale that I basically thought were garbage. I ended up testing about 15 of them in this one and they all sounded pretty fucking good. That said, it would be nice to build up a few in easier etched aluminum enclosures and put em in my deceased Shark Tank but I'm sure life won't let me. If you guys haven't built this one, do it!

Happy new years!

A vibrato I got far ahead on half a year ago but only got around to painting it now.

PT2399 modulated delay line with microcontroller. Several LFO shapes with smooth blending between each-one. Also a dedicated knob to blend in eather high or low frequency random variation, depending on which direction from center you turn the knob. Depth, speed and mix knobs are self-explanatory. Also relay bypass switch and tap tempo.

A couple hidden features! If I hold down the tap switch for more than a second, I can "trim" a sort of skew into the LFO using the random knob. Also by holding down the bypass switch for more than a second, I can "draw out" a custom LFO using the shape knob by twisting it for up to a few seconds. It sort of records that knob twisting and plays it back as a new LFO. Speed and depth work with it as normal, and it resets to the normal default LFO shapes if I twist the shape knob again for more than a few degrees (to prevent accidental erasure by knocking the knob). The "reset" is still a bit buggy, I have to fine tweak the code.

Color is a bit too yellow. Was going for more of a moon/bone color.

Phenomenal work as always, especially the art. Your drawings are awesome.

How slow/fast does that speed knob get?

Thanks!

From a couple seconds at the slowest for a full cycle, to nearly ringmod rate. Got a non-demo here, it's old, from an earlier prototype.

So do you have the uC controlling the delay chip? Like a digital pot or an LDR?

Just a couple of transistors. I based that section of the uC->delay chip modulation from this:

The couple of transistors and passives did fine. (with a few tweaks)

Man that's awesome. It'd be cool to hear that heartbeat shape if you could time the start of the peak wave with the ping of a vactrol. Or maybe that's just in my head it sounds cool. Ringmod rate vibrato is really cool as well.
