Crazy tube circuits
« on: November 16, 2010, 10:05:14 PM »

Went on an adventure through youtube and found a demo video of this awesome pedal.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T0YKCtEv1z0&feature=channel

its called black magic drive by crazy tube circuits. There website gives a quick over view of whats going on underneath it all but nothing too in depth. Anyone ever hear of them or know anything about it? Seems like a fun build.

Here's what it used to be called, before they put a graphic on the box.  Wink

- Guitar built from parts
- Random strings to make a full set
- Any pick that I can find on the floor
- Some pedals that I built
- My all-tube amp head that I built out of parts in my spares box
- Cheap Marshall 4x12 with better speakers fitted

so its just a modded Dr Boogie then? Strange, I have a Dr Boogie but mine sounds no where as good as that one. I wonder what they changed.

Maybe they changed nothing!?  Do they tell you what they plugged it in?

Good and pretty versatile overdrive. Nothing really outstanding.

Maybe the others weren't plugged into Dr.Z amps, they tend to be good sounding amps.

So sorry for replying after a year and a half but it's been long since i logged in and just found this post by accident

Yap Black Magic is based on Doctor Boogey. Crazy Tube Circuits is the brand name i use for my designs... It's been modded a little by adding 2 extra jfets after the eq emulating the response of the power amp and a couple of value changes to give the freq response i was happy with...

It is slightly lower gain than the original stuff with a touch of the earlier boogie sounds ;-)

Cheers

I'm in awe, right now!  Shocked After I read Rick's reply, and having read the link he posted, I'm pretty much surprised!
Let me explain.  Smiley I met Christos in person last year (in a music gear expo, here in Greece), shortly after I got into DIY. I tried some of his pedals, including the Black Magic (really great stuff, by the way! If you haven't already, you should check his site.), we talked (he's a really great guy!  Cheesy) and I told that I started building pedals, too. But, although I did know the Dr.Boogey project (and all the fuss of how great it sounds), I didn't know that in front of me, I had the man who designed one of the most popular DIY effects.
So, Chris, thank you! If we meet again, I'll thank you in person!  Wink
