- This is
one of the things I love to do! Sometimes, the original pedal enclosure is made
of plastic or is too large to fit on an already crowded pedalboard! Following
are seemingly bland, interesting and mildly amusing re-installations of known
pedals into replacement enclosures.
Extremely Jammin' Dock:
I was approached
with 3 identical Alesis JamDock DJ iPod and Mic units - all with broken plastic
enclosures, loose potentiometers and intermittent jacks! The owner wanted me
to install the guts of the best one into a more rugged enclosure - here it is!
Here we have
a modified, three pedal combo (all DanElectro food series) that has two delays
(PB&J) and one vibrato (Tuna Melt) all in one. The two delays each have
two independently switchable rates and dry/delay levels -- allowing for 4 delay
rate and mix choices! This was a necessary thing to do as the original pedal
enclosures were made of plastic and kept breaking and BREAKING!
This one is
an UGLY BEAST but, gets the job done! We took an existing modification and modified
it WAY BETTER! This unit not only is a Morley Boost-Wah, but also has an on-board
MXR Script-logo Phase 90 AND an Electro-Harmonix Big Muff Pi with an internal
regulated power supply! This combination of effects creates an ASTOUNDINGLY
MASSIVE sound that is guaranteed to BLOW SPEAKERS if antagonized!
and Double Play!:
3 pedals here from left to right: Boss CE2 (on it's own) and a double: MXR Phase
90 and an Electro-Harmonix Electric Mistress. All 3 pedals have "special"
mods that enhance the existing tone and are true bypass as well.
This is a
simple one... The original enclosure was just a little too fat for the pedal
enclosure was huge and the owner wanted something he could either wear (this
unit has a belt clip) or place somewhere else other than the floor. This smaller
size was perfect!
