Working Prototype shots of the Battle Loop

Recently I've been working away on the first of the Electronic Battle Loop Pedals. Heres how far it's come - the finished version will have proper decals applied (The graphics on the pedal at the moment are just a paper lay on to line everything up! ), an extra footswitch, red knobs and red LEDs and 2 sockets for plugging in a modulation signal from the modulation devices. The two knobs are for 'clean boost' and 'feedback level' You can see the colour version of the graphics a bit lower down the page.

First Protoview!

Which version of the graphics do you guys prefer? The dark or the light? If you could post you opinion in the comments section of this post it would be a great help!

One Last Thing!

Christ, have I been busy today! Here's one last thing - a sneak peek at my new range of pedals and modulators. Check 'em out. Remember that these things can be combined together to create all manner of beeps, bloops and bangs!

Prototype Electronic Battle Weapon Pictures

Here's a few pictures of the almost finished (just waiting for the parts to arrive, a few sockets and stuff) prototype of the Electronic Battle Weapon, this version is going to be a deluxe model that I'll sell off when it's finished. The Electronic Battle Weapon Delay is housed in the Wah shell and the Sequencer, LFO and Envelope follower are in the BB sized box. In the next versions of the Battle Weapon each modulation unit will be in a seperate enclosure, with a dedicated on/off switch and there will be no Morley Wah shell, the Battle Weapon will be housed in a regular BB sized box.

Jackson Pollock Style

Just a quick post to show off the pedal I've just finished, a piece of custom work with a Jackson Pollock paint job. It's a gnarly fuzz with a rate reducing filter on the end - it makes your guitar sound like a lo-fi keyboard on a ring mod setting. Pretty cool. Check out the 'kustom' page on my website to here some sound samples!

Almost there!

I've almost finished the new website and the designs for my new 'Battle Weapon' Series of pedals - The Electronic Battle Weapon, Electronic Battle Fuzz and Electronic Battle Loop. The modulation devices which also go along with the pedals are also nearing completion. The LFO has been completed, the envelope follower and sequencer are in the final stages of development! I'm looking forward to releasing these - they really are something new and unique to the Effect Pedal world, a place which has been becoming increasingly stagnant as of late.

Check out these videos of the prototype Electronic Battle Weapon in action - I'm sorry for the poor quality, they were created using a mobile phone! Expect better quality vids soon!
