Custom pedal building EU?

Post by JONFROMJERSEY » Sat Jan 18, 2020 11:58 am

Any recommendations for a custom pedal builder in the EU? I would like a chorus / tremolo pedal. Two switches so I can have chorus or tremolo or both. Rate and depth for each effect. Simple, practical aesthetics.

Thanks!

Hey Jon!
You might ask Daniel Ringl from Lichtlärm or invertedcross audio from Spain. Lichtlärm‘s “Untiefe“ already has Chorus, Trem and Phaser built in - but is switchable via a mini toggle - but that could be arranged I think. But it‘s far from subtle! ;)
At least those are the ones who have both in their assortment.

JPTR FX has a cool chorus but I don‘t know if he would bastardize it with a trem or whether he still takes custom orders that don‘t take more than installing a few switches to the already working circuit.
And KMA Audio Machines has beautiful effects too - but neither Chorus nor Trem.

Do you need to have it to be made or would you mind try soldering on your own?
I combined separate circuits into one enclosure before (JFET Reverb and Tremolo, Fuzz and Treble Boost) and to me soldering a diy-kit is like building a LEGO-set - but I‘m still very bad at trouble shooting! 😜

Thanks for the reply! I have tried and failed with a few diy kits so I would rather have a pro do it. I will check into those leads.

Yeah, and that can be very frustrating - so I completely understand!
Good luck with them! I hope you get what you want! :)

Not having any luck in the custom pedals world, BUT as it turns out Danelectro made such a pedal (Chorus/Trem) some years ago. Kind of hard to find and ridiculous looking, but maybe I could rehouse it....

Thanks again for all the tips.
