Attached is the drill template. It's at full scale, so if you want to print it out at "Actual Size" scale 1:1 you can see what the dimensions of the real pedal will be when you receive it.

Here's the left side all wired up! I particularly like this one smile.gif This test is the two stacked together and both on. There are so many ways to dial in a sound with all the different knobs. Lots of tone shaping smile.gif

I've gotten started on the art too, I want to make it a surprise, but I think I should share it so you get something you know you like. I'll keep you in suspense until tomorrow smile.gif

I started on the art yesterday, but then I realized maybe you would want to come up with something on your own. I was thinking a military green enclosure with this graphic I found online. I hadn't picked a font, but started with something like this.

If you want to find your own art, it needs to be at least ~700x500px and black & white (or grayscale) You can also find a font for the text here. It probably should be something kinda bold so it is readable.

As for the enclosure, I think we should listen to Chris and get a pre-powdercoated one. There are lots of colors to choose from here.

Here's a mockup smile.gif

Looks pretty spiff! Can't wait to see one in production mode!



The BANGEETAR pedal from Orange was a long time coming and it really does allow for a lot more control off an Orange Amp. It's a great pedal by itself honestly it could work with anything and even by itself!! It finally gives you full eq control of the signal PRE-GAIN which is something that IMHO should be built in to every amp smile.gif But not one vendor on earth seems to agree. Thus, pedals like the bangeetar smile.gif

IT works before an amp or in the fx loop of your 11 rack, or by itself as a preamp. Great stuff smile.gif our own RICH has one!! Here is a id about it.

I hate when gear doesn't include enough EQ controls to make them versatile. It's curious to know that Orange released that pedal, since one of the things that I don't like of their amps (for example dual terror) is how random its "tone" is and it's the only EQ control that includes. mad.gif

wou! that's very impressive!! I love each details that you've decided regarding this pedal. The colour and image are just perfect! I could choose a best one. About the font, I don't note how it would look over the pedal, but I have to say that I like the "horror" style that you linked there. Let's try it!

I'm now more anxious to try this bomb. biggrin.gif

Prototype is wired and working! This pedal is really great (I I do say so myself smile.gif). The drilling went great and everything fits nicely. The powdercoated enclosure is on the way and then I'll build the final one. In the meantime, I have some jamming to do....

I had to set everything up, but this is a pretty good demo of how it sounds. My amp had a touch of reverb on the whole time which I didn't notice until after recording. The mic is about and inch from the speaker grille on the edge of the cone. That's why my voice is kinda distant because this is the SM57 amp mic. I'd listen to it at the highest quality, otherwise you're missing some of the detail.

I also think I'm done building my pedals in enclosures, they take too much work, and I'm starting to get a clutter of wires on the floor. I don't need them to be portable because I only play at home. I think I'm going to build a rack cabinet with Eurorack rails and make my pedals as modules, synthesizer style. Then I can use patch cables to modify the signal chain. Like this:

What a killer pedal and video mate! I'm amazed of how versatile this pedal is! It can go from a very nice crunchy to a powerful drive and everything sounds cool. I also think that the example of using the booster with the fuzz is killer, it really enhances the effect well. Congrats on your killer job and thanks for this test!

CAN'T WAIT to see this idea in action!!! ohmy.gif smile.gif I think that this is maybe that creative idea that can make your work different to others and who knows.... rolleyes.gif

It's just perfect!!

Just experimenting... I'm still not sure which colour I prefer... what do you think?

Attached Image




mm maybe my sample is a bit orange?

I refereed to this colour: http://www.8thstreet.com/images/visual-sound-jekyl.jpg


however as we already have light in red, I think that green will be a best option!

I think those all look good, it's really just whatever you like. The "Military Green" powdercoated enclosure arrives today from here. I got that one because I thought the finish would hold up better for your use. I have the bare metal one too, if you wanted to paint it a different color. I'll keep whichever one for myself. The LED color is not too hard to change, I currently have red in there and I also have green and yellow "in stock". I think you'll like the green/red combo though. The black text and graphics will stand out better than on a darker background color. I also think the real thing is going to be more "military" looking, more olive green. I didn't try very hard to match my mockup graphic.

It'll probably look more like this:

Looks amazing!! smile.gif Also great idea about the rack! Making boutique pedals that fit in a rack is something I have not seen and would be great IMHO. You can configure it any way you want. The foot controller would be an important part of it of course, so you'd either have to make each pedal midi controllable or at least make the rack midi selectable so that one could turn on and of pedals and set "scenes" with certain pedals on and certain ones off. You could still use killer graphics on the front plates of course which would really make it spiff. smile.gif

Also, could you make an ampifier that takes up one or two blocks? That way, the rack could be the entire rig. Folks could select what they want in their rack and bam, instant riggage smile.gif

Sounds great Brian, well done.
Watching your demo made me think about these http://barefootbuttons.com/ wink.gif

Cheers

Thanks Todd! Yes, all of that is my plan. I'm currently doing some early designs on how to switch the rack effects with momentary push switches on the individual units and midi selectable with a footswitch like the Behringer FCB1010. I'm learning a lot about electronics and found an awesome site, Circuits.IO which has a really cool virtual breadboard to tinker with.

Thanks Phil, yes I made that video in a hurry and realized after my ratty socks were the stars of the show smile.gif

Finished!!!!! PM me the address where we're sending this beast too, this is probably going to be the trickiest part smile.gif I really hope you like it smile.gif I hope you don't mind, but I'm going to post the finished product to some other places too.
