Top is my new brown faceplate. My red/black/white is getting pretty beat up on the edges - I did it on high quality photo paper with a 6 ink photo printer, then shot lacquer over the top. Very time consuming, and just not very sturdy. Thought I'd figure something out that had the right brown 'vibe' but didn't look like something I could get sued for.

second up is a humble overdrive special plate. Three guesses what this is going to be... still in development, stay tuned.



Fishy module on top is one I'm working with a guy who owns a 'real' fish and we're going to send his module back and forth until he gives it his blessing.

The Ubermodule underneath is going to be a challenge - check out the top of the module, see the line? That line was drawn on the chassis UNDER the faceplate... yes, it has a clear top and I'm going to try to figure out a way to light it up that won't interfere with the module fitment in our amps. It may not be doable, or may be stupid expensive to have done because of the metalwork I may need to do on the chassis... but we'll see.

Of course, full speed ahead on the three proto modules is going to be delayed while I clear my bench... but several modules are going out very soon to eager clients. Very Happy

Pete

I take it the ODs is based on an Ultra Lead too...or did you figure a way to do it on the Deluxe?

I don't like building too much circuitry on top of a module, and to do that on a deluxe would require a lot of rework that potentially could be a real problem for servicing later and reliability.

So no, not on a deluxe, at least not the lead channel. Still exploring options and playing. The deluxe would be a good candidate for the Humble Clean Channel though!

Pete

Yeah, I'm actually doing some interesting tweaks to yours that might end up on the Humble clean module... Very Happy

was just trying to figure if you were using a module with a pre gain EQ stack.

When Pete figures out the ODS I'll be pulling the trigger. I'm thinking it might be a version of some Mesa type module. Then I'll sound like Robben Ford walked in the house and forgot how to play.

Hey Pete, are you shooting for that Cantrell tone with the fishy mod?

Patiently waiting is easy knowing that you take the time to bench test and tweak things until you're happy.

It's not like you drop the new parts in and ship it off.

Also, the post Bruce E. made about part placement and the effect it can have on the sound was quite enlightening.
I never thought it would make much difference.
Guys like Pete (and Bruce) are obviously in the top 2%.

And to think, Martin Luther King Jr. has his own holiday, streets across America named after him, etc.

I think Pete should have a street, too! Laughing
