Finally built this Deadend Wurmloch (DBA Space Ring type thing)
Thing is freaking nuts....kind of nether region between fuzz and ring modulator??
I can't believe DBA doesn't sell these.


Just finishing up the Deadend Doppleganger clone soon, ordering parts from Tayda is taking ages and still waiting on the vactrol thingies.


Awesome possum!! Yeah, it's a shame that they're not available. Oh well... better PCB than nothing I guess. :lol:

Sneak peek at one of the rarest of the rare, the Foxx Select-a-Fuzz. Breadboard test, courtesy of he-that-shall-remain-nameless. Should be at DEFX soonish.

Once I've completed one or two more I'll take some better pictures ;)

This is a recent build discussed elsewhere, but with a new name and (slightly) better paint.

Nice, I'll be keeping an eye out. I remember seeing this project kind of come to stand still a while back. Wanted to mess with it but got caught up in other stuff.

It's cool though, this Deadend seems way more usable/adjustable with the blend options and warp hole.

Here is the almost finished Doppleganger, just ordered 3 more PCBs too.
Hammond makes a reasonable approximate replacement for the Lovetone Enclosures.

I actually ordered a wrong sized enclosure from Mouser and it is gigantic. I have no clue what to stick in it, Mouser said it would cost too much money to restock it so they just gave it to me free (it was almost 40 bucks)!


Image

I ordered the Ring Stinger and ? Flange PCBs and I'm kind of tempted to stick both in this enormous enclosure to make a mega lovetone thing... :poke:

Hmmm... What are the dimensions on that huge Hammond btw? Might be good for a Lola Phase (Mutron Bi-Phase) too. :cool:

Re: Let's see your finished DIY projects!

Sun Apr 07, 2019 9:21 pm

It's 10x8.5 inches so probably close to the original Mutron enclosure size, I'll definitely keep that Lola phase in mind for it.

Got it wired and working, very cool. Very confusing lol.

I've never heard a doppleganger, it seems like its a mish-mash of straight up filter sweeping, univibe-ish sounding thing, or phaser and adjusting the mix of them. The rotary switching combined with the footswitches make it a bit hard to understand right now, but it sounds great.

It's a dual phaser / vibe

One LFO effects the low frequencies and the other the high frequencies. You can run them in parallel or separately, with either single or dual LFO control and different wave shaping.

A really versatile pedal. The depth mod makes it way more usable so I would recommend that.

The true / spec switch enables the filter only in bypass it does nothing when the effect is engaged.

Re: Let's see your finished DIY projects!

Mon Apr 15, 2019 8:50 pm

Yeah, I'm gonna do the depth mod when I get some more components for the other boards-

Do you have any advice on where to buy the OEP1200 for the Leo X or LT44 transformers for the String Ringer? They seem to be UK exclusive parts, trying to avoid the hefty shipping prices!

Re: Let's see your finished DIY projects!

Mon Apr 15, 2019 10:16 pm

There's a guy on eBay that sells 2xLt44 with 4xBat48s for like 12 bucks shipped. It's what I used in mine. Works great!

There's a substitute for the oep you can get from Mouser. See pic.

Wrapped up this earlier Electra/Germanium Giant dirty boost by taking out the germanium and putting in a BC183, I just liked its character best of the ones I tried. Also a new paint/stamp/sticker/clearcoat job.

And the latest installment of the Hen's Tooth Cafe. It tips that scales at 25 minutes, the first 10, I go through all the controls, and what they do. Feel free to skip to 10:00 for the noodling. The video could have easily been much, much, much, much longer. There's that much inside this monster. I'm only scratching the surface. Barely.
