Impatient to hear what this thing would sound like, I had a ‘hoke’ through my garage to find a suitable box to put it in for testing. The only thing I could find was an old die-cast box which once held a radar sensor from a burglar alarm I had built years before. It had been part of a system I had installed in a local shop but this one had been zapped by a lightning strike and had been replaced!
I ripped out the old guts, drilled some new holes for the pots and stuck the BCD edge switch to the side with a mass of duck tape 🙂
It didn’t work at first but, after fixing a bad solder joint , success!! We got echos, lots of lovely echos and the tone of the guitar seemed to be improved too. Piet has included the fetzervalve circuit in the pre-amp stage so that seems to have improved the tone.
