Vulcan Build

The Vulcan is a heavy over to distortion by Joe Davisson. Check his Analog Alchemy page for more of his designs. Here’s a discussion of the circuit over at the DIYStompboxes forum.

I created a PCB you can order at OSH Park.

Work in progress

I always get into something for a while, then need to take a break. There are a few hobbies I always seem to come back to. Pedal making is one of these!

I dug out a few of the boards I started before the last break, and ordered a few more. Sat around soldering the last couple days and here we are!

PedalPCB Parentheses Fuzz

Here are three PedalPCB Parentheses Fuzz. I made a few of these before and they sound really great. This is a clone of the EQD Life pedal with a couple mods. If you’re looking for one I’m going to sell these when they are done. Currently I’m wringing on parts. That mini four position switch is hard to get. Seems like PedalPCB is the only place that has these.

assorted PCBs in progress

First are three Fuzz Factory boards. Next are three Haunting Mids Fuzz. This is the first version of a PCB i designed. I’ll post a project for this once I’ve tested it. First on the bottom row are two Nobels Overdrives. These are AionFX Andromeda PCBs. Next is a left over Vulcan, and last is a Big Muff board from Madbean. I’m going to build this using the green Russian spec.
