Would that be the BadStone PCB that's hopefully winging it's way to my doorstep?

On another note, I wonder if you've considered doing an EHX Graphic Fuzz? That's certainly a project I could get interested in if you can mount the pots on the board.

It might well be! Even I haven't seen one of these new boards in person yet, looking forward to mine.

I haven't but i'm not sure about that one... I think i'm happy with the Dlx Octave & Zipper for now.

I know this is a tangent, but I'd love a two-sided plated- through-hole board for the BMP that

a) fits in a 125
b) has the space for 1/2W CC resistors and ceramic 1kV caps.

to play with the mojo of the originals, in sensible sized box.   The BYOC and GGG don't have any room for large components.  The BYOC I have, barely fits in a 1590B.

Ew, Carbon comp. Why even bother, they don't add to the tone, and are just noisier.

This is madness, those are the components i'd be looking to eliminate from anything I build! Carbon comp does not add mojo at 9v, just hiss, which is the last thing the BMP needs more of!

If you're gunna bother with Carbon Comps you may aswell go with the original Layout - http://www.diystompboxes.com/smfforum/index.php?topic=82634.0

Handclap machine (forget the exact name though...not clap trap. Clap Track?)

While we're on the subject of the Clap Track... does anyone have the schematics for any of the other battery powered Drum Machines from EHX? http://electroharmonix.vintageusaguitars.com/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=22:the-different-drummer-pt-2&catid=13:electro-harmonix-articles&Itemid=45

I've got the Sonic Boomer (From here - http://topopiccione.atspace.com/PJ09EHSonicBoomer.html ) but none of the others, the Random Tone Generator could be good too, i'm thinking along the lines of a sorta EHX Drum/Noise Kit.

And has anyone tried the EHX Silencer? From the reviews I read on Harmony Central it appears to be a fairly good Noise Gate/Suppressor and the schematic around is pretty damn simple.

Gut shots of any of these units would be appreciated aswell.

Just to add a little more to Scruffie's amazing initiative here: I already have the vintage DMM well under way. It should be completed within a couple of weeks at most :)

Is that you, Ton? In a suit with your hair slicked back? So different from the style you are normally rocking!  8)

Since our dutch connection had informed us shortly before the show
that one of the last pure soulmen had just passed away,
(and we`re not in New Orleans), we decided to dress decently in the honour of Mr. Burke who had provided the first song of each "Magictones"-show ("Everybody Needs Somebody"),
and to me not doing the unequalled forward/backward/sideward duckwalk on flip-flops,
like it was shown in a videoclip of an earlier band-anniversary between the sets that eve...

I realize this is a late bump but I was listening to an album the other night that made me remember that EHX had produced a "vocal sounding wah" effect - Talking Pedal

http://www.effectsdatabase.com/model/eh/talkingpedal

Granted, HIGHLY specialized piece of gear but I'm intrigued. Perhaps there are other wah or filter projects on the forum that really tackle this. Was this added to the EHX revival list?

From what I recall, it's just a pair of Twin-T filters, like the bassballs, but swept manually.
Similar in fact to the dipthonizer, though slightly less complex.
If anyone has a project for the talking pedal, i'm interested for sure!

Aha thanks Taylor, I can't believe I'd forgotten about Gargletron! I really WILL have to build EVERY Tim Escobedo effect.

Dipthonizer- I'm not familiar with is that a DIY project or a vintage effect?

The Colorsound Dipthonizer is a formant based envelope filter. You can set it to make A E I O U sounds, it really is quite cool.
There's a project for it over on ....com.

Oh, apparently I can't direct you to a website of Stompboxes that are Free. Bizarre.

Anyway, the Talking pedal needs a strange dual pot to offset the sweep. Perhaps you could fudge it with series and parallel resistors, I don't know.

The choice has been made and Proto boards are on there way  :)

I did know about the talking pedal but decided against it due to the need for a wah enclosure, these projects are really for the average builder (Such as myself) to be able to make... plus if I did go for a Wah enclosure design from EHX, it'd have to be the Queen Wah (which I think would make a nice etchable project if someone did a layout...)

For the Gargletron I think I'd probably utilize an expression pedal input on a regular old "boxy" enclosure. I have a number of 10k - 20k expression pedals bought 2nd hand including the fancy Moog ones. This seems like a nice way to set up Gargletron for sure. Now the trick is finding a layout that's good amongst the many different ones I found in the forum and now need to sift through.

At some point I intend to create a page or link list of layouts of the Escobedo Circuit Snippets grouped by both project/pedal and layout type (pcb, vero, perf) as well as status of verification and/or noted corrections/mods. There are simply so many options out there in the forum and on the interweb that I feel somewhat overwhelmed, and not really ninja enough to draw my own layouts at this point.
