CWS010

Momentary A/B switch for switching two inputs to one output. This pedal was built specifically to switch a microcassette player into the signal path when the switch on the pedal was held down. This pedal was built for and used

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,

Project 001 – Fixing an old (Boss) power supply

If you’re like me, you have a whole bunch of these kinds of power supplies all mangled up and lying broken in a box or tossed in a drawer somewhere. Instead of throwing them out and buying a new one,

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

CWS006

Tremolo pedal based on EA tremolo design. This pedal was built fairly true to the circuit, with minor adjustments to the controls to give them a more preferable range. The sound of this pedal, compared to that of the boost

CWS003

Boost Pedal This is a dual JFET boost, using the mu-amp/minibooster circuit. The controls for this pedal are—a 2-way gain switch, volume knob, tone knob, and a 3-way bass switch. The two fixed biases, selectable with the gain switch, were
