Snagged this bad boy on Reverb this week. The Malekko Echo 600Â Dark is the warmer version of the regular Echo 600 (bright??). Â A little while ago – maybe 6 years ago – I had come across this pedal on YouTube, but I don’t think I had developed my own uses for delay with respect to analog vs. digital. So while I stuck around ’cause the pedal looked cool and the playing was good, I didn’t really add it to my list of pedals to consider buying (it was also really expensive).
Here’s my third Klon build using the Aion Electronics board. The first one I still have. The second one I built for a friend who plays bass. And this one I built so that I could sell. But, I don’t know, it’s so pretty I might keep it.
Kind of a filler post here…but lately, I’ve been outfitting my pedals’ bypass indicators with these fresnel lens covers instead of bezels. Generally speaking, I think a lot of pedal manufacturers need to tone it down with the brightness of these LEDs. Perhaps it’s common that stage lights (or playing outdoors) warrant an annoyingly bright indicator, but I always felt it was overkill.Â If I ever ran into the issue, I’d just change the LED resistor to something higher, or I’d just swap the LED (usually water clear) to a diffused one. Anyway, back to these lenses. I just think they […]
T.C. has been teasing a new productÂ for a little while now, but it was only a couple weeks ago that they officially announced what this new thing is. Â Well, here it is – the HyperGravity Compressor.
Pictured here is my newest completed pedal project. Â It’s the Aion Electronics Nimbus Overdrive. Â Recently I had built myself a Klon clone and found it useful enough to include in my rig. If you didn’t know, the Klon is kind of known for it’s prominent mid-hump EQ. At first, I wasn’t really too crazyÂ about this, but ultimately I decidedÂ that the contrasting nature of the Klon to my other OD tonesÂ was a good thing and thisÂ secured it a space on my board. While browsing the Aion Electronics shop, I came across the Nimbus. TheÂ one thing I really like about this site […]
Â Â Nothing new here. Just another Sho ‘Nuff I built for my mini board. White enclosure, pink LED and black knobs (I may swap the knobs later).
This is the latest version of my pedalboard. Â The newest addition, my Sho ‘Nuff boost in the bottom right corner. Here’s a closer shot of my drive section. Below is the complete signal path.
Here’s my first ever guitar pedal build. In the past I’ve moddedÂ my gear and replaced components here and there, but I’ve never built one “from scratch.” The PCB was purchased from guitarpcb.com and this is the Sho ‘Nuff Boost.
Man, this thing is bright.
