Cool effect idea bro. I had the idea to do the same thing with a tremolo (you totally beat me to it). Post some picks when you get this bad boy together! I'm really interested in seeing how you are going to box it up.

will do...so am i?.. icon_mrgreen

i fancy it will be in a 1590bb with the switch to one side...and an ldr in the space next to it..to tap with ya foot..
with the indicator or rate led facing the ldr ....something like that.......i found some pcb right angle led holders
that will do the job fine...

my main task was to get the ldr to respond in reverse...

That sounds like a good idea. I'm not too crazy about BB sized enclosures though. I've always been a sucker for a bunch of knobs on my effects and I never seem to have enough space to make everything look neat. Then again, I did try to fit an AMZ overdrive pro along with a Brian May treble booster in 1 1590bb with dual outputs (and 7 potentiometers!). That's probably where I got my negative stigma for them.

Yeah. You're right. The BB has almost an inch and a half on the B I do believe.

Cool stuff, I'd imagine a slow speed wah "stab" would be nice as well.
Something with the same fast we-oooh but with more spacce between
stabs.

yeah that'd be cool...id like a tone in there too to soften the wah maybe..for subtlety..a sort of depth etc.....maybe..

yeah no worries joe....

this wont use a treadle though!..

thought about many designs for wah treadles...and i just cant be bothered with em...too mechanical and big

ive got a standard wah anyway..i was looking at pedal board real estate issues too..nice n small...

that sounds lovely though.....bit phasey, which is another thing id like to incorporate..oneday...

ha ha..its not raining ok... icon_mrgreen cheers joe. keep whacking that tele man... rob. icon_mrgreen

would've thought he'd show the pedal though!.....
