I modified an old Dunlop Cry Baby with pedals for car tuning.
There is also a spring to pull back the wah when it's not in use.
Based on the famous MXR Distortion, I built a distortion myself.
I wanted to build a stomp box that looks special.
During a lunch break I came to the Idea that I could create a distortion pedal in the style of the Fender Stratocaster.
Since the Stratocaster has it's own knobs and switches designed only for that guitar, I thought it must be fun to create a stomp box look a like
Behold! Here it is the Strat-O-Drive. I used the 5-way switch, to switch between different diodes. In the middle position I even used LED diodes. LEDs sound totally different as opposed to conventional diodes.
The colour should be close to sea foam green......
Sorry, I had to do it.....
I had so much fun creating the Strat-O-Drive. The logical consequence was to create a stomp box in the style of the other famous guitar the Gibson Les Paul.
Of course it needed a binding and a sunburst finish. Had to repaint the dam thing three times :-(
The ground of my celler is coulered with a light red by now..... but it was worthy.
I use the three way toggle switch to add a pair of diodes for a more compressed sound
Ok, for all of you who were not 80's kids: MOTU stands for Masters
of the Universe.
The Masters were back in the day some of the most successfull action figures.
Since I am one of those 80's kids, I created a Distortion Pedal in MOTU-Style
It's the first pedal with my own electronic desing and so far it sounds pretty good.
I am currently working on a new project:
A lot of guitar amps don't have a 2nd master volume, that could be used to boost the guitar during the solo.
That's the reason why I want to build a pedal that has two independent master volumes.
This one is the Corona Version of the 2X-Volume. I created this
for my good friend Sam.
The F-40 Drive is dedicated to one of the craziest sport cars
ever hit the streets, the Ferrari F-40.
I took the wheels of an old F-40 Model as control knobs.
It's basically a Ibanez TS9 replica.
Here they are, all in a row
Got two distortion boxes, a dual master volume pedal and my version of the cry baby.
