Here we go
On that website, we find another old friend, but lets go back in time.I yield a pretty good soldering iron, so people like BYOC, General Guitar Gadgets and DIY Stompboxes have enabled me to make recreations of my favorite pedals with some of my modifications. Not only that, but building my own pedals has given me more appreciation to the masters, which certainly includes BJFE!

Wow, he said it. But it gets better: somebody already gut shot it:IIIBOOMERIII 10-23-2006, 04:22 AM wrote:
tonefreak - Abunai 2 OD
What a great pedal!!!! I talked with Dereck for a while before I had him
make this pedal for me. He is a great guy and answers all questions you may have. Can't wait to have him build another pedal for me!
The Pedal "Abunai 2":
The Abunai 2 has (from left to right) a volume knob, tone knob, and drive knob. In the center above the tone knob is an 3 mode switch.
This is a highly moded TS 808 circuit with 3 modes, "Marshall", Diode Lift, and TS 808.
But at this point there is no Boutique yet. But revealed or not, we are going through with the release. He should really have a licensing deal with BYOC if he uses their boards, I think.10-24-2006, 12:17 AM tonefreakIt was nice of you to point that out. You can also say there are many pedals on the market that are basically TS808s with mods... not sure what your motive was to bring something like this up, but if anyone would like the details of anything I make, I will gladly share them.Originally Posted by imcorn
Anyway for those interested, the Abunai 2 OD is just basically a BYOC 808 screamer clone with additional mods
There have been some changes to the Abunai 2. Most recently, I started outsourcing my enclosures... hand painting, although fun, took too much time.
I'm also going to have my own PCBs made, but, until I have time to do so, I will continue using the BYOC ones.
All my parts are sourced from Mouser, Small Bear, Digikey, and a local electronics store (no, not Radio Shack).
Nothing has changed with the design... I'd like to make some changes, but, again, I need to find the time.
There are no smoke and mirrors here... tone is tone.

First CA, then Japan:
Japan? Anyway, lots of TS question on the boar in March, and in February, purple, misdrilled boxes for sale:05-01-2007, 08:16 AM tonefreak wrote:The Abunai 2 is the only piece I'm selling here in the US. Next will be the Dragonfly Distortion co-designed by a great designer, Andy Carrell. I have the schematics... I just have to find some time to prototype and then get impressions from my testers. I also have something up my sleeve for a chorus... I think it's something many have been waiting for, if I can pull it off. I've summoned Andy Carrell's assistance again, but this time in laying out the PCB for me, so the committment is pretty much there if the prototype pans out.Originally Posted by TheWarmth wrote:
Dereck, when can we expect your next official pedal to be released. The Abunai 2 is the only one that you're selling through dealers so far, right?
Japan will see the Abunai, Abunai 2 and Clean Lift (Mosfet boost). And possibly the Dragonfly Distortion.
I am just one person but I want to keep my business moving forward, so in order to facilitate growth, I've commissioned experienced hands to help move things along.

Meanwhile in March 07, there is the Purple OD in small box
Then this message at diy:
And shipped in JUL 07!Wanted: ExpressPCB Consultant « on: 25-05-2007, 13:37:50 »
I'm currently working on 3 other PCB layouts and could use an extra pair of hands to speed things along.
The project is laying out a PCB using ExpressPCB's software for a chorus. I will provide the schematic. Only individuals that have experience in ExpressPCB. I need this project to be turned around in a 7-days time.
The price for completing the project is $100.00 and I will need to see a couple examples of your work.
My references are $uprema and Dragonfly.
Don't anyone dare ask for the schematic ! [smilie=a_whyme.gif]
ps: there is also a tremelo coming (posted today), is that the EA that BYOC sells?
