    This was suggested in the P-15 thread a few weeks back and figured we should do it. We can post pictures, reviews, whatever of the many pedals that @Azure Skies has made :)

    Here is a group shot the the ones I have so far:

    [​IMG]

    -P-15 v1.1
    -Azure Drive v2
    -Sunder v2
    -Super Stack
    -Broughctave
    -Power Stage
    -LHPF
    -PLL Clone

    Anyway, ask, post, enjoy!

    Would you mind explaining what each pedal is that you own?

    Josh doesn't have a website does he?

    Sure, I can give a better explanation later on, but here is a mini description of each one:

    -P-15 v1.1
    This is not a pedal, it's the P-15 preamp that is basically a copy of a B-15 preamp section. The v1.1 comes with two outputs, one balanced XLR, one unbalanced TS. Great device, great DI, great Preamp.

    -Super Stack
    This is a fender preamp in pedal form. Basically a Fender showman circuit with a 12AX7 tube functioning at very high voltage. Plenty of output, 3 band passive EQ.

    -Azure Drive
    This is an overdrive inspired by the Blueberry Bass OD (original version) with more gain and adjustment. Lots more range on the tone and gain.

    -PLL clone
    Straight clone of the Schuman PLL but with 9v power input

    -HLPF
    Low pass and high pass filter in a pedal with adjustable hpf, lpf, and gain.

    -Power Stage
    High voltage circuit that uses a subminiature tube that behaves like a power tube. It has a transformer as well. The point is to emulate or come close to a pushed tube power stage.

    -Sunder Fuzz v2
    Amazingly versatile fuzz loosely inspired on a Superfuzz. 3 Band EQ, lots of tone shaping and range on this one.

    -Broughctave
    This is an octave pedal which has an exact Boss OC-2 front end without the input buffer. There is also a square wave signal. You have a volume for direct, octave down, and square wave, along with a filter adjustment for all three. The mode switch lets you turn on or turn off any of the three (or combination of) voices. Internal dip switches let you configure what the mode is.



    Josh is working on another preamp pedal for me and some others at the moment. I will report back when I have it. I'll also try and find different sound clips of each pedal and post better pictures of them.

    my "Mini Board of Bliss" really benifits from the Broughton Power Stage and Monocle compressor. the PS can be a clean or slightly dirty boost or cut. i love the Monocle solo'd, but stacked-up with the Smoothie is anything but redundant!

    Number 5 Bro-Ton fan here. Got one of his HPF's too. In case anybody is curious yes the P-15 is better then a REDDI :roflmao:

    I think we are allowed to say that in this thread :)

    I had Serial #1 of the P-15v1, gave it to my dad, he loves it.

    I like everything in that picture. The bass, the P-15, the amp, the cabs :)

    It's a baddass rig for sure. Now, if only a real bass player was using it!

    Love my Sunder v2. It's super huge sounding, but it's also quite focused.

    I had a v1 SUnder and it was awesome. The added bass EQ makes the v2 even cooler. It's a GREAT fuzz pedal.

    Josh is making me a pedal we've called the ATD 12ax7. It's the tube section of an Aguilar DB 900 DI without the DI. It's just in and out to get a clean tube character for your signal. I'm sure it'll be great for any instrument.

    I've got a Broughton HPF, I use it basically to tune the room. It's been a huge improvement to stage volume and clarity amongst the other musicians. But don't tell them they think I'm a magical bass player
