    A bit bored during lockdown, I made this for a friend. Its a spring reverb, in parallel with an analog chip reverb, plus a wide range tremolo, plus a tweedy sounding drive....

    I was going for an early 70s East European or Scandi kind of feel. The controls are labelled in a made up language to suit that idea. I was really bored, clearly.

    Here's my friend Rodrigo giving it a whirl....

    Excellent @markeebee ! :cool::cool::cool:

    Wow, that look ! :):):) Does it comes from The Big Moog of Klaus Schulze or Tangerine Dream ? ;)

    Let me guess : you re-used and existent casing, modded maybe the lenght ,and for sure the front face : you put a printed screen film on it, right ? o_O

    Good Job, indeed ! :cool:

    Very cool. I get a bit of a ‘70s Russian space program vibe.

    Excellent. That's real boutique. All analog? Are you planning on building a small batch?

    That looks ... really nice, and sounds like well-chosen functionality in it!

    ... also, I'll double on asking for a scheme. I won't reproduce it without permission, I promise (I'm more in the "building my own overdrive"-camp of abilities ... and already waste a lot of time in testing, changing, testing, changing, ...).

    Thanks, that means a lot to me. I always think "when I grow up, I'll make stuff as good as @hcsterg". Not yet, though.

    The look comes direct from my weird head.

    I made the case. I don't have your awesome skills with tolex, I really struggle to get the corners neat. So I used this stuff to make it easier, but also because I like how it looks:

    The front panel is just a sheet of aluminium cut to size, with a big sticker that I got printed here:
