      Daedalus

      Much like the engineer that it’s name derives from, Daedalus was methodically designed and crafted. As opposed to using a chip, we wanted to built the reverb off the newest Belton 3 brick. So that’s where we started. In it’s infancy, it was a simple one knob reverb. Over several months, Daedalus grew it’s wings. The addition of the Depth knob was the first step. We originally discussed implementing a shimmer feature in the pedal. This idea was replaced with an expression jack. This jack allows the user to insert any pedal into the decay of the reverb using a TRS Y cable(not included). The Blend knob was then added to give the user control over the amount of external effect being placed into the decay. The Pre Amp is the “special sauce” here. It has the ability to add volume to whatever pedal is in the expression loop. Enough volume that the external pedal is almost as loud as the initial reverberated note. This can be very useful for swells and experimental players. The Pre Amp knob also adds volume to the decay and the length of the decay. Making it a dual purpose knob. The last thing left was to fine comb the wings. This was achieved by adding the Reverb II knob. This addition allows for two separate reverb levels of independent footswitches. Set one for shorter, traditional reverb sounds and the second for longer, drawn out reverb sounds. Both Reverb knobs work with the rest of the controls.

      Foxcatcher

      Foxcatcher is the result of six month of trial and study. After a variety of breadboard builds and circuit explorations, we finally decided to clear the breadboard and start with a circuit that we loved, the Bluesbreaker. From there, we began changing and adding to the base circuit. The first of which was a slight change to the tone section and the addition of the Nature knob. From there, we added an output buffer and true bypass stylings. From the start, we wanted to have an independent boost section on the pedal. That decision was easy, our Gravity Bomb (you can read more about Gravity Bomb here). Once real world testing was in full swing, we started showing friends, family and local dealers. Taking everyones critiques in to consideration, we added an effect order toggle switch. Lastly, we incorporated a Burr Brown audiophile op amp and made it so that Foxcatcher can receive up to 18 volts. This allows for even more clarity. John du Pont’s signature pedal.

      Gravity Bomb

      This mini boost is the reincarnation of our discontinued Smoke Monster. There are a lot of great mini boost pedals out there, but we wanted to do ours a little different. Instead of using transistors, we utilized a studio grade op-amp capable of adding around 20dB. At zero, Gravity Bomb is a buffer. At 10, it shakes the coins in your pocket. Towards the end of the dial, a combination of natural amp and pedal drive will be heard. Running the pedal at 18 volts will yield greater headroom and keep the signal cleaner throughout the entire dial. Amp and pedal distortion amounts will vary depending on rig set-ups.
