DIRGE ELECTRONICS: Progress/Protos/Puppies

Postby skullservant » Thu May 31, 2012 9:26 pm

Well, hello all. I guess it's probably time I got a Shark Tank.
As some of you may know, I build pedals.
I usually try to make them useful and/or unordinary in function.

Have a board that you want me to assemble?
Have an idea but no means of producing?

If you come to me with an idea, chances are I can run with it.

Here are some examples of my work.

First up is what I've named the Gloom Drive. Simple 1 transistor fuzz based off of the Bazz Fuss but with totally different values, creating a super heavy, super loud fuzz. It likes to be first in the chain, but can get nice and velcro sounding if being pushed by another fuzz.

I make Gloom Drives on tagboard, using the best quality caps I can find.

How much? It depends on how fancy you want to get! I can make you a mini Gloomy on pcb in a lipstick enclosure with standard parts or I can make a tagboard version in an MXR sized enclosure with orange drops, carbon comps, spragues, etc. I get my enclosures from Mammoth Electronics, so if you wanted a certain color you could browse the size you were thinking and then just add the paint fee onto the price!

You also have the option of 1 knob or no-knob. I usually just crank mine and leave it on 10 all the time, so I've often made mine without knobs. The knob effects the amount of gain in the circuit and can make it really velcro-sounding on lower settings

Here is a Music From Outer Space Weird Sound Generator that I put together. I added a few mods to it, including a SHO booster at the end, power starve, LEDS for both LFO sections of the circuit, master volume, and finally an optical LDR for sweep of the filter.

Image

Here is a simple multiples unit I created for use with Moog Moogerfoogers. It allows for you to connect various sources from your moogs to strips of jacks that can distribute said source to more than just one single connection. It comes in handy and really opens up the capabilities of your Moogs as sound sources!

Guts? I was wondering about that after I posted, would love to see how you arranged it.

They are a fun, simple build! I remember enjoying that build quite a lot!

I've got some ideas for Gloom Drives, I think I might order some parts to make a few versions I've been sketching up in my head, I might send them out for a few people to try

HEY EVERYONE SHOULD GET A GLOOM DRIVE CUZ ITS TINY AND LOUD. KICKS THE SHIT OUT OF TUBES AND MAKES THE GUITAR ALL WOOLLY AND ANGRY.

Also, if you're going to expand on it a pre-gain control would be sweet. Rolling the guitar back yields some cool starved tones.
