As I mentioned in another post (viewtopic.php?f=9&t=2999&start=10#p44449) I've moved back to pedals.

After a few weeks of things going on and coming off the board, this is the current setup. Will be subject to change, but it does what I want for now.

Was the BLD pedal part of the Dingotone line up?
I can't remember it.

I can't remember it.

It was the first ever dirt pedal I made. I think there were about 5 field-test units. This one has been sitting in the bottom of a cupboard for 5 years. I know Franzoni has one. I honestly don't recall where the rest ended up.

I kicked off a vintage DS-1 and my FDD in favour of the BLD. It is rough and simple and seems to fit better tonally.

I ended up not making these because it seemed "too simple" ... The circuit uses just a couple of transistors. I was perhaps overly influenced by the cork-sniffing on other forums and should have stuck with my initial approach. The FDD ended up maybe being a bit too refined.

Two thumbs up for 1)big pile of gain and 2)phaser after delay.

BLD is a great pedal as is i said as much at the time.....the only change i would of made was to do away with the switch and leave it in insanity mode all the time.... :D

I usually keep the gain under halfway and use it as a clean on the edge of overdrive type boost as i find it works great that way into either a clean or dirty amp.....in the clean channel with a Strat set like that it gives me that 70's Richard Thompson vibe that i love...... :guinness: :guinness:

It just took an hour to find the schematic for the BLD...

I'd forgotten it has Germanium clippers. That's why I like it so much!

And I also remember... I am driving the transistors right near their current limit, so the silicon is fully saturated.

Finished board.

Birch stair riser with oak binding screwed on with drywall screws (I liked the industrial look of the black screw heads). Sealed with Varithane. Power run along the back - one power jack on the right splitting to all 8 pedals. Pedals held down with two screws and lug mounts (viewtopic.php?f=11&t=3762&p=40332).
