G.A.S. takes hold but on the cheap

Postby SlayerBear17 » Mon Jun 20, 2016 4:16 am

So another purchase to be made. I think how many pedals I have and alot of them dont get used...however I have another one to add to the collection of pedals that WILL GET used.

Gonna splurge out on a behringer noise reducer pedal lol :lol: :lol:

One I get my custom pedal board made up you guys will see pictures.

Reason for me getting a noise reducer????

For live gigging I have used my Egnater armageddon. it has a noise suspressor built in. I have it set mildly. If I need to achieve feedback boom done awesome.

I wanna start using my Peavey 6505+ for some up coming live gigs. Hence the noise gate.

Been so busy as of late.

I had me a home-built pedal, like an A-B box, but the B went to ground, and I'd use that between songs & on break, to kill the noise. I can't find the drawing in my file cabinet, but the box was from like 1978, and I don't think I saved stuff like that until I built my Big Muff copy, which I messed up & could never get to work correctly... Anyway, most of the stuff I did like that came from those Craig Anderton books - names escape me just now... like Electronics Projects For Musicians ??

It might be nice to make a kit....but dollar wise just doesn't make any sense. Sure maybe 20 years ago....but we built a ....??? Big muffins pedal or something rather...ended up costing us more then to buy one....however it was a fun project to do.

Ahhh, but you can 'customize' it, man... But, you're right. It cost probably a third again as much, at least, to build something. So, if you could buy a pedal in the store for $40, it'd cost you $60 to build - not counting what your labor cost... but it was fun! That A-B box tho, was cheap & easy, with 3 switchcraft 1/4" jacks, a dpdt switch, and a box. Seems like there was a couple resistors and maybe even a capacitor in there...

I found a link like what I had:
http://buildyourownclone.com/products/tblooper
Big difference is the price... I don't think it cost over $20 back when... what?? forty some odd years?

u will need to get a crossover in there, otherwise the tweeter will blow. Crossover the tweeter and front speaker. I dont know what the freq cutoff are for them, but someone on here might know.
