CWS021 – Boost Preamp

Dual footswitch boost with tone bypass. The right switch acts as the master bypass for the effect, while the left switch adds in the tone control for an additional boost. This pedal is used by Vicente Elizondo as a preamp

CWS020 – PTP Boost

This pedal was my first attempt at building something point to point on turret strip. I started making this boost without a plan or a diagram, and was pretty amazed at how nicely everything fit together. Sprague Orange Drop capacitors

CWS017-019

These three pedals were built as refinement to the concept in CWS016. The main circuit is the same as found in CWS008, with the addition of a switch that controls a large or small boost in the bass frequencies. The

CWS016

Boost pedal with modified tone section. The capacitors were selected from extended use with CWS008, to be the exact same circuit when the pedal was in its most utilized setting. From this starting point, CWS016 is able to reduce (or

CWS014 – Tremolo Optical mod

Another tremolo based on the circuits found in CWS006, CWS007, CWS009, and CWS012. This circuit was modded with two switches, one to bring in extra depth, and another that switches in an optical component. A NOS photoresistor was used in

CWS013 – Flute Filter Fuzz

This pedal has been in the works for a long time. I suppose the story starts years ago when I scavenged an old roadside Gulbransen organ, thrilled to find it overflowing with nice reusable poly caps, resistors, switches, pots, wire, and

CWS012 – Brazil Tremolo

This pedal was created against all odds, in the back lounge of a Prevost nightliner between Chicago and Seattle, then flown to Brazil where it was placed in the hands of its new owner. I do so few commissions, that

CWS009 – Tremolo

Tremolo pedal based off of the Electronics Australia circuit. This pedal was made for Mike York of Pianos Become the Teeth. I thought I would post some process pictures as I’ve never really done that before. The enclosure was machined,

CWS008

CWS008

Boost with six-way tone rotary switch. This pedal is yet another progression of the boost circuit found in pedals CWS001–CWS004, consisting of a volume and tone control. Instead of the continuous tone control as found in CWS004, this pedal has

Tremolo Pedal made for Derek Sterenberg. This pedal was made to the same specifications as CWS006, based on a circuit which was published in Electronics Australia in November, 1968. It has a similar sound to the tremolos that were built
