Re: Designing New Effects Pedals

A man after my own heart. I can't stand weak gimmicks and labeling that's more impressive than the product itself. There's something that strikes me as dishonest, even cowardly, about it - like they're trying to distract people from the actual lackluster quality of the product. It's like an insecur...

Re: Designing New Effects Pedals

May I humbly suggest you not get too cute with your designs. I'm not a pedal guy. I generally don't like pedals. But you know what really turns me off? When I can't just look at a pedal and know what it is. Too many, way too many, pedals have gone with fully stupid gimmicks with their names and desi...

But it's a very modern way of smoothing the low turnaround of a flanger. ;)
Long live the dwell!

Re: Designing New Effects Pedals

just for fun "Dwell in ignition systems refers to the period of time that the coil is turned on. That is, it is the length of time that current flows through the primary winding of the coil. In old points systems, it is the time the points are closed. ... The two coils are known as the primary and ...

If you're talking about the the delay where it seems to stop for a period going from the down sweep to the up sweep
Yes, for me that's where the problem usually is. The lower turnaround.

Re: Designing New Effects Pedals

All of the stuff you described that cause that horrid turnaround is why I dislike most flangers. I love flangers but I hate that warbly gross turnaround. If you've figured it out, kudos to you sir! I probably didn't do a good job of explaining it without all the gobbley gook. ;) It's a matter of no...

Re: Designing New Effects Pedals

I'd maybe be interested in a flanger. I don't play corny 80s hairy buttrock, but I like spacey reverby psychosurfy sounds and flangers are good with that. Good flangers that don't do that terrible metallic clunky turnaround are hard to come by. Many flangers have a horrible weird hiccup when it tur...

Yeah The Weber seems to be one of the better buys around, allot of the kits are 800-1.200 would hope to find a used marshall at that point !
I don't know of any big-watt Marshall kits as complete and affordable as the Weber stuff.

Re: resistive Vs reactive loads effects on sound

Sorry OKGB, I just got tired of it. I felt I was being fairly diplomatic offering why I felt the technology was valuable in certain circumstances while not saying that using the old ways was in any way bad or wrong. He just couldn't see any way to reciprocate and was pretty much "stuck on stupid". ...

Re: good deals on Amp kits ?

Looking for a reasonable deal on a marshall style amp head, one That I can hack up & experiment there's allot of room in the old style single channel ones, most kits seem too serious trying to be old marshall heads that they're close to a grand or more. I'm on my second Weber kit. If it's something...
