Welcome to the Revolution

Hi there, welcome to my blog - La Revolution Deux. It's an odd name - but I like it! Here you will find all the info on my various DIY Guitar effects builds, amplifiers and guitars. Everything from a humble Ibanez tubescreamer to the holiest KLON Overdrive.

You may also find a few effects builds that I am looking to move on - usually in exchange for other effects/gear/cash. You can always check my ebay account to see what I've got up for grabs.

Have fun, enjoy the blog - Fred Briggs :-)


Feel free to get in contact with me about anything you see on this blog or with any general questions about guitars, amplifiers and effects, I'll be happy to answer! Just click the button above to email me directly or alternately my email address is fredbriggs2007 [at] googlemail [dot] com

Invading Cannibal Ladybirds - Fuzz/Distortion/Delay

Is it a fuzz? Is it a distortion? Is it a delay? No it's an Invading Cannibal Ladybird..... Hmmm.

Here is the schematic for a crazy device I knocked up on breadboard. It's a Cannibalization of the Parallel Universe from eaced.com, the big muff tone control and the lofi delay created by Allesz for last months circuit competition. It's a truly unholy circuit and creates all sorts of screaming, oscillating, feedbacking (is that even a word!?), beeping, buzzing and whooshing sounds.

Some of the values need tweaking and it could do with an output buffer but for what it is it's great, just pure fun noisemaking - it's almost a synth. The gain control for the fuzz section is the volume knob on your guitar  Add some modulation to the delay time (sequencer? LFO?) and you have a really crazy beast..

Build it up and have some fun - just don't expect any Stevie Ray Vaughan tones from this thing, cause it eats tubescreamers for breakfast

The circuit name comes from this thread/article I found the other day: viewtopic.php?f=20&t=15718
