I'm still waiting on some 3D printed stuff though.

It's here!   

3D printed parts and a laser etched enclosure. I haven't been this excited for a build in a long time. :icon_biggrin:

FIRST SHOT ACROSS THE BOW!!!!!

Name of Entrant: Govmnt_Lacky
Pedal Name: The Un-named Flanger??

A bit about the pedal:

This build has been a labor of love, sweat, and a few tears! I have wanted to build this for a LONG time and thanks in great part to a small (and I mean SMALL) collaboration with Jim (electricstorm... who is one of the coolest dudes on the planet) I finally made it happen!!! The challenge I put upon myself was to find a way to get this monsterous build to squeeze into a 1590D enclosure to be pedalboard friendly. SUCCESS!!!!
These bad boys go for up to $2K online and now I know why  :icon_eek: The potential for sonic uses and the sonic territory that can be explored is limitless. Flanger, Phaser, Chorus, Echo, Vibrato, Tremolo, Ring modulator, the list goes on, and on, and on! Most of this is highlighted in the video so I will leave it in there.
The enclosure is finished in a metallic silver Hammertone paint and the graphic is a resized, vectorized lift of the original pedal's graphic set on to a reflective pseudo-metallic adhesive foil. It took about 2 days of sizing, resizing, and several prints to get it just right to fit the enclosure. There were many times I wanted to give up at this point but, I forged through it! All knobs are aluminum natural finish. Parts used were all the best quality I could get. Alpha and Alps pots, Neutrik switched jacks, metal film resistor throughout, and some Visual Sound BBD and Clock chips that I fell into from a pedal scavenging expedition! RG-174 shielded wiring where needed.
The PCB was home etched from the layout done by Jim. Also, the included schematic is Jim's baby. USED WITH HIS PERMISSION OF COURSE!  ;) If I failed to explain a function OR did not highlight something... ALL of the info can be found in the EXCELLENT build document that is linked!

So.... without further a-do. OPEN YOUR MINDS AND ENJOY........ Oh yeah..... VOTE FOR ME PLEASE!!!!  ;D





GUTS!!!!!


And the VIDEO proof. I tried to keep the talking to a minimum but, there is too much COOL stuff to talk about!!!!


I was limited on some of the features I could show since I only have one good amp but, you can see the AWESOMENESS regardless!  8)

Finally, the schematic & build document. These are all available through Jim's (electricstorm) linkage. He has given me permission to list them here for the competiton so, to save a bit of space, I will link to them. ENJOY!

We're no longer friends. And I'm not sending you anymore parts if you're going to use them against me like this :icon_mrgreen:

Holy crap that's a nice build Gov! I have also wanted to build one of those for a while, just too scared to attempt it  ;D. Great job!

Jon - I haven't seen any dolphins lately. Should we be worried?

Greg - very nice work. I haven't started yet, so you have set the bar spectacularly high, both in terms of quality and time management.
