My selection was mediocre at that point:
You brought a whole couch to gigs?! That's dedication!
:AOK you have great taste. now i want another wah probe & an Aquavibe
It never fails. Someone always says something about the couch. I think that was just part of a really old photo thread about a day-long redesign.
Is the second last photo a shot of your whole lot?
If not, is there any chance we could get one w/ the whole lot?
Lookin' good! You have separate boards for out front and in the loop? Are those Pedaltrain 2's, or Pro's? Cheers,
The second to last is everything as of two weeks ago. Some stuff has been added and subtracted since then I think.
Both signal paths travel across both boards. One is a pro and the other is a II.
A few more Q's, if you don't mind, Dave...
How does the Empress compare to the Retrosonic? do you prefer one slightly to the other?
Also, how do you like find the Black Pearl distortion?
Lastly, how's that new vibe of yours (the one you built) compare to all the other vibes you've got/tried?
My Black pearl distortion is for sale. I have the muff sound covered with a number of other pedals although none of them sound like the Black Pearl. It sounds so evil and violent compared to my other fuzz pedals which can be really cool but I dont use it.
The empress and retrosonic are dramatically different which is why I keep both. The empress is more pristine and bright with a more spacy sound. The retrosonic is warmer with more of a flange sound. Similar but worth having both.
The vibe I just finished is very similar to the Aquavibe on more classic settings but a little darker than the mojo vibe.
Great stuff. I see you got a few Toneczar's. How are you finding the Dove? Do you use it more for low or medium gain? It's a killer pedal (and "unfortunately" the only one I have from Ed)...
I like the dove a lot. Every low gain tone you could want is in there. I could probably sit for hours just playing it and the openhaus.
Is that a Neovibe with the carbon fiber top? Did I see that on the DIY pedals forum?
Holy Moly, my pedal evolution seems to be in the opposite direction. A lot of pedals to nothing.
I've been wanting an Openhaus for some time....GAS, GAS, GAS... Is it tonally similar to the Dove just with buckets of gain extra?
You got some great stuff on your boards
Sort of similar but also quite a bit different. The same basic voicing but all the controls cover different ranges. They stack really well while many other pedals stack very poorly.
Yes it is and you probably did. :AOK
I'm thinking about building one of those myself. How does it sound? Where did you source the parts?
I had almost everything I needed already. Some obscure caps, the LDRs, lamps, dual gang pot, and another part or two came from smallbear.
