Hey. I am starting the drawing up of a schematic of a pedal I will be making soon. Its going to be awsome hopefully. Its going to be a nice overdrive, but with tons of features. I will tell you one small feature now, a tonestack (bass, mid, and treble knobs to adjust tone). But thats only one useful feature I am adding.

Some may be thinking that I am crazy for trying to design my own pedal already, but I have been researching a bit, printing schematics, and all to study them. I have looked at schematics of the same type of pedal, and circled similar sections so that I can base some sections of my design off of that.

What I am asking for here is a name for this pedal.

I will begin prototyping this board when I am finished with two pedals I have been asked to build for people. They shouldnt take me long so as soon as I am done, I will begin.

The SharpShooter?

And the pedals you are building for other people.... how much are you charging them?

Build it and post clips. Then we can decide. Deciding a descriptive name for a pedal we have't even heard yet? yeaaaaa...

"I'm a big gay and I like men"

That's a great pedal name.

First build it (prototype on breadboard even), then tweak it, then figure out what it sounds like, then name it
#18
yea I am doing a breadboard so I can switch caps and transistors. I am actually almost done my basic schematic. After that, I need to add my few special features.

I've been hacking away at osciallators and tremolo circuits lately. I plan on designing some kind of ring-modulatorish pedal

About showing the schematic... Not sure if I am releasing this one, because it may just be the next big pedal *right* . but I dont know about showing it yet.

...We will see.
