Ok-If you insist, it sucks!!! :P I just wish I had a reverb that sucked as much as this!  I must need to have my hearing checked because I really thought it unsucked.  ;)

What would it sound like with a twangy electric playing "Long Cool Woman"?

i tried that already,  it  sucked.

 ;D ;D ;D

it sucks so bad i might as well build it just to match my other terrible sucky pedals....just for continuity. :icon_mrgreen:...

Hmmm... What is it you don't like and how would you like it to sound?

lol...i don't like it with a guitar plugged into it, but i'd like it to sound as if their was a guitar plugged in to it, that was pretending not to be plugged in to it at the same time, so as not to sound like anything was plugged in to it though it actually is...

I think that this thread has gone the direction of the "What do you do when it does work" thread!

#10. Babble aimlessly to anyone that will listen for the sole purpose of exuding the pure joy and excitement that stems from the happiness and contentment with your new build!  ;D
I just designed a new fuzz circuit! It almost sounds a little different than the last fifty fuzz circuits I designed! ;)

Sound clip was awesome. It sounds like it's removed a bit from the 'spring' reverb and more into hall. Is there a way to make it do the spring thing as well?

hi matthew,

on that demo i had reverb up full, and damp off, time full too...

heres another demo with a bit of twiddling about...(before the time/feedback was added...

just adjusting the reverb amount and damp...

In keeping with your reverse judgement where good=bad and bad=good, I'd say that was really bad! :icon_wink:

update:  don't build this yet....got a problem houston....beep.............beep.......

heres the problemo.

everything is fine and dandy with just guitar and reverb....levels at bypass/on and unity etc...fine...

however...

when adding a distortion in front (reverb off) bypass and distortion level unity ...everything ok....

but...as soon as i turn on the reverb...there is a massive level drop....though they are the  same settings.  ???.....gonna have to sort that out...glad i tried it  with distortion before building it.. :icon_evil:

any ideas?

That's a shame, because I just finished making the PCB for you :(  That said, I made a bit of a boo-boo with the solder mask (pulled the backing off too early) - it is solid as a rock, but it's not as pretty as usual so, if you decide to change the circuit, I'll just make another.

What distortion pedal are you using? Link to schem?
...you fritter and waste the hours in an off-hand way...

Maybe an impedance matching problem which is way beyond my ability to understand.

That 33k/4n7 combo on the front end rolls off stuff above about 1Khz, could you just be hearing a loss of top end with the dirt that you don't notice clean?

@mike: bummer eh... :(

@ian:  no its way more than that, i bypassed the 33k/4.7n and yep its brighter but no where near ..as soon as i put distortion on, whoomph...level is sucked down...and very tonally different.. ???

like john said maybe an impedance thing..but way above my spaced out head too.. :)

my distortion btw:

maybe needs some  kind of buffer in front?...
