Stunning pedal, mate.  Nice story, too.

thanks, Marc, the nephews are arguing as to "who should get it" now.

looking for a photo of the actual tree in action, I found more about dad's uses of. the thick scabby bark peels off in a sheet, and he was shaping it with some plactic'd wire to make stag horn holders. which he hung all around the house. now only one left.

back when we moved into this house in the 60's, there was a gum tree growing in the chook-yard, which blew down (the tree, not the chook house) in a storm sometime early 80's. it seems my old man had select logs "run through a saw", which were then left under the house to season, for what future use I don't know.

skip ahead to late last year, my sister is looking for woody things to throw out before the termites can eat them, and she finds the last usable sized log under the house. which I then rescue, saying you can't chuck that, I'll build something from it.





so I did - a Bosstone fuzz, Nashville version. here it is (sitting on the planks it was cut from), a chunk of gum stuck in a cut-down Horwood aluminium extrusion, oiled with turps and linseed, airbrushed w/ acrylics, styled by Larry and Mike of the "second style council". (undetectably wedged in three different places) it came out looking ok, if somewhat unspectacular, even sounds pretty good. if I was paid per fcuk-up, I'd be rich just from this one build.

those wishing to see the guts mess and some more pics can follow through to the imgur page.

That is a stunningly clean build!  Great job.  The attention to detail is spectacular.

"what's the delay?" I hear you all scream. well it's the soffit, seeing as you asked. actually Merlin's small-time, but seeing as my slanty bend actually has a soffit, I called it "soffit".






I didn't even know what a soffit was until Sir Mike told me about them, and now I have one. the wood panels impart no acoustic properties, they cover the ends, glued on.



special thanks to the now disbanded first style council, who chose the brown over the green. oh, well, better luck next time fellas. extra special thanks to cozy, for the extra small parts, which took away my excuse for not being able to do it. now I have done it, I won't need to do it again.

and the delay pot works the correct way, turn clockwise equals longer delay. well, that's what I tell myself, anyway.

more picture, including the innards in progress, in the bukket:

[edit :] happy birthday Sir Mike.

Good looking work Mr. Duck. I had heard of soffitts before but until your post I had no idea how to spell it :P

It's like a little bed for your knobs and such.  Wooden headboard and footboard, with a nice plush comforter.  Got a little 3-knob action going, and I think the footswitch just likes to watch.

Working on my first wooden pedal, in cherry:

Definitely taking extra time and being extra careful with measuring and drilling because "wood filler to the rescue!" would be such a terrible fate.  Just one hole so far.  This will eventually be my Theremin fuzz build.

Is that a build from scratch? Or is there a place that sells pedal-sized wooden enclosures that nobody told me about? Looks amazing either way 8)

That box is available thanks to those DIY vaping people using the same size enclosures as we do.  I bought it from berkshireboxmods.com.  In addition to cherry, they also have mahogany and walnut/oak, all in "B" and "G" sizes.  Very nicely made with a CNC machine of some sort.  The lid fits snugly and seamlessly.  If you buy one, make sure you remember to add the magnets to your cart (no screws).  I'm quite happy with this one.

Damn, I was really hoping it would be a scratch build so I had an excuse not to buy a dozen of them and re-box all of the pedals on my board into tasty wood boxes :( Oh well, here comes the credit card...

here we have the Don Burke All Stars, my overwrought magnavibe-a-like. wood is from our chookyard gum.


it has dual range osc w/ mosfet pso, 3 position Lyman switch, jfet phase section, and gain make-up stage.


I asked my customer, an ex-pat murcan, 'which of these to cover a swirly pedal', and he said "...Green Stars, like Don Burke before the sexual harassment accusations, look like the dark side of an American movement." hence the green and the name. he also chose a purple knob, so the black one is now gone.


the star-hole (a bit like Don) is dual purpose indicator, flashes red at osc rate, then adds white when in un-bypass.

the paper has to come off at some stage, febri, otherwise we'll never see the finish.

I'm declaring this Theremin fuzz done.  If I don't, I am afraid that it will be the only pedal I build all year.
