I've been working on a new DIY project the last few weeks and finally got my build finished and verified today. It feels so good to have this thing done and running smoothly. Anyways, here's my stab at the whole thing:

The PCBs will be for sale soon. I am not making them myself so they won't look like the one in my build. I just have to talk with the person who's making them to figure out the price. More details on the PCB's to follow.

Here is my build:

I fit the whole thing, 8 pots, 2 footswitches, 2 toggles, 3 LEDs, input, output, and DC in all on the lid of a 1590BB.

If anyone's able to build one, I'd love to hear what you think.

That's great! Very neat work.

I'll have to upload some picture of my PT2399 toy I've been making. It's installed in a Morley Wah shell for even more fun. Also has a wet FX loop. Oh and I added an expression pedal jack input for controlling the delay time and one for controlling the "mix" as well.

Why not add switchable diode clipping and filtering to the circuit using a 3pdt switch - then you could have overdrive as well. It would be a super pedal!

I really like the way you've integrated the LFO - very nice!

Thanks, it was really fun.

I'm working on the sound samples. I started doing them last night. I just had the line out from my practice amp running into my sound card and it wasn't really working out. I'll try to find a way to mic my Twin Reverb this afternoon. I might as well just get some quick samples on my MP3 player if nothing else works...

WRT the two stomp switches, i'm guessing one can just be a DPDT (by the looks of the wiring you have there) but what are you switching with them?
I'm (safely?) assuming there's one for an overall bypass/activate, but is the second the delay tails?

The other footswitch can by DPDT if you want to control an effect and LED, the true bypass switch should be 3PDT if you don't want to do millenium bypass for the LED.

It's the tails like you guessed. I don't find it that useful really. If you want tails you can do it, or you can have just a bypass footswitch, or tremolo, or chorus footswitch, or if you have a big enclosure you can use 4 footswitches. There are a lot of options really, I just built mine this way to try out the tails idea.

again, thanks.. I've just done prelim testing on mine. mostly going fine, but not getting the tremolo as yet... I'm just aligator clipping the switches for now, but will put some proper toggle on there to test it further... nice pedal bro!
