    Hey guys, it's been a busy week and I haven't even gotten around to PMing Mike about getting my looper!

    It's fantastic. Excellent build quality. Gorgeous custom paint from PedalPartsPlus. Mike and I sent probably 50 PMs between my original idea and receiving it last week... over a simple bypass looper setup! EVERY ONE of my ideas ended up on the final project. Mike has OUTSTANDING communication, and from talking so much I found him to be a great overall guy.

    I'll get a few pics up this afternoon, but not fully on the board as that's for my coveted entrance into the PYPB threads... it's an unveiling that's been two years in the making for me. :D

    To be complete, I must say we ran into a couple of slight hiccups along the way, but Mike was the man who gave me all of the options and did all of the work to fix them.

    To sum it up, if I need custom work done in the future it's Mike that I'm PMing first. This thread has already started to grow, and if he keeps it up He's gonna have a line waiting!

    I'm sending you pics, Mike! Thanks AGAIN!!!

    The optical compressor is based on the Flatline by John Hollis, it's also the same design used in the "Afterlife" pedal from MadBeanPedals.

    Thanks for the kind words enjoi! I'm glad you're digging the looper!

    Here's a pic with knobs on the fuzz trooper:
    The pots aren't mounted yet, the knobs are just sitting on it to show what it will look like. Personally, I'm pretty stoked on this one!
  4. This is great! Can't wait to see the Fuzz Trooper finished and hear some clips / feedback! :hyper:

    Blender pedal I just finished. I'm debating on whether or not to do a decal or leave it plain. I really dig the finish on it right now.

    There is a simple beauty to an undecorated pedal.

    In the case of the blender, it is just a blender. Now, if you want to really decorate it, hand a bunch of enclosures over to DanDub and really fancify them. :D

    Clean octave-up requires digital. Analog octave is kinda fuzzy, but in a good way.
  18. The M5 does a wonderful octave-up via its pitch-glide setting @ +12.0...instant 8-string!
