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

CWS015 – Dual Momentary Footswitch

Two button footswitch with TRS jack. This pedal uses momentary switches to select up/down settings on a jamman loop pedal. It is a smaller version of the FS3X schematic with the exclusion of the mode switch. Here is the switcher

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

CWS011 – AB Amp Switcher

AB amp channel switcher built for live use with green (CH1) and red (CH2) LEDs. The switch will also work with any equipment that requires a TS connection using the channel 1 output.

Project 002 – Pedal board build

I have a habit of tearing apart and rearranging my pedal board for just about every tour that I go on. Earlier this year, I had switched the entire board over to a 6-channel true bypass strip and ran all

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
