    Well... The wait ( :rolleyes: ) is over... I will be doing some short runs of my "as of now un-named tone modifier" pedals, they are all true bypass and are compleatly passive... 2 models as of now...

    #1 = on/off switch with flat/cut control
    #2 = on/off switch with flat/cut control as well as a 2 position mini toggle to adjust the frequecy range...

    Prices as well as sound samples and pics to come soon...

    Ok... Well after some carefull thought, the name for the two pedals are the "Tone Soap" and "Tone Soap Super"... Soon to come a all passive overdrive pedal (dirty soap)... Thats right no battery no power suply needed...

    Ok so here is what is does:

    Ever founnnd that when you are direcy recoding that your passive bass sounds awsome with the tone rolled off, but when you roll off your tone through your amp it sounds muddy?.. Well The Tone Soap solves this problem with very simply yet thoughtfull designe, and better yet you can set it at whatever level of treble cut you want and kick it in and off as you need - even during a song.... You can also place it where ever you need it on your pedal board, or even in you fx loop!... Put it after a fuzz to tame the nasty high end, personaly I like it after my SB-7... And best of all no power needed...
    Here is a picture of the Tone Soaps graphics...

    Ok... the only one that is finished in its entirety (and will shortly become avalable to the puplic) is the tone soap... The effect is subtle, so don't be expecting some monumental happining...

    Alex

    ps. I will do some real good soundclips soon... these are just tasters...

    70 dollars is more than reasonable for an all-passive OD. Assuming samples are even half decent*, count me in.

    * but I'm expecting nothing but brilliance

    $85.00 usd (sorry prices could not be as low as I wanted)

    Dirty Soap - Passive Overdrive (apx. $95.00 usd)
    Gain Soap - Pre-set Passive Volume Pedal, with no-treble loss circuit (apx. 75.00 usd)

    In the future:

    Super Tone Soap - all the things you love about the T.S. but with blendible frequency range and a 5 way selector!..

    Alex

    They are true analog circuits, they need no power... They work with any signal that is put through them... They do not increse your volume at all (except the tone soap lets more bass through - giving the feeling of more volume...) This is how I am marketing, pedals for the true tone alchemist...

  17. Website? Pictures? International orders?

    sounds very interesting Alex, I'll probably be one of your first customers!
     
  20. sounds cool, is the dirty soap gonna be a soft warm sounding overdrive or a tear your face off sounding one?
