Been through the old belton brick threads but couldnt find a mention about the new module Linky to one of the good threads
So time to DIY a full set of FXloop 1590pedals.
working on Phaser/Delay/Chorus/SonicStomp right now, but what about reverb.
Of course there is the GGG reverb kit, not in production anymore, yet the Reverb
Bricks are still avalible aswell as version2 of said brick.
This one is really interesting to me since its just about half the size of the original.
Banzai (European Supplier)
TubesAndMore (US supplier)
Anyone got -any- Idea about this thing? Pinout etc seem to differ, yet should be the same thing on the insides?
GGG Belton Based reverb
D-VERB Build Instructions
D-VERB Bill of Materials
D-VERB Parts Layout
I suppose If the pinouts can be traced shouldnt take much more work?
Just straight of copy the parts etc from the GGGproject on a perfboard with a TO-92 type 5V regulator
( KA78L05 ) and go from there?
From what I can tell the Belton/Accutronics modules is patented recepie including 3xPT2399 Chips.
And the bricks thats pretty much used in all reverb stomp boxes theese days.
Also there is the BYOC reverb based on the old Belton Brick

More complicated yet interesting layout more control. Is this prefferable to the GGG version?
Guess this could be harnessed with the new smaller brick too?
Perhaps a custom layout can bring it down in size, some.
Also seen a couple recomendations of FV-1 based DSP board from OCT distribution
Linky but double the price and more troublesome since I cant find any layout (buffers etc) to go along with it.
Anything that ads to the workload is no good to me since Im constantly bogged down with loads of
projects needing to get done.
Is the FV-1 reverb really that much better then the belton/accutronics one? might warrent the extra cash, though need to find some input/output buffer PCB layout etc? any hints?
So is this really that much better?
not really interested in beeing able to have both delay and reverb etc, cause got seperate boxes for seperate effects and like it that way.
Looks somewhat complicated thou, here's the OCT module on a board for guitar:
