Ancient Pedal

I added some pedals to the little “board” in my bedroom recording nook. Pardon the dust in the photos:

The little blue Blooze Maker has been in and out of this signal chain. I like using it to push the Ryra, but not when the Ryra is pushing anyone else. The little gold guy is a very cheap Chinese copy of an MXR Phase 90 that I bought years ago when I wanted to have the cheapest possible stay at home setup. That only lasted as long as it took me to start upgrading stuff on the band board. Then I had higher end stuff staying at home and this little guy went into a box in the cellar. I could have pulled the actual Phase 90 off the band board, which is in the cellar waiting for the band to start playing again, but I decided I didn’t want to mess with that setup right now so I put the cheap copy into the chain.

What’s that little black pedal there though… that’s one we probably haven’t ever seen.

That, my friends is the first delay pedal I ever purchased. I can’t for the life of me remember when I purchased it, but I’m pretty sure it was in the early 90’s. It was very late in 1990 when everything I had was stolen so it had to have been after that. I think it might have been almost immediately after that. I’m just not sure. I don’t know if it works or not. When I plugged it in and switched it on the little red light lit up, so it’s gotten that far. I haven’t played through it yet. We’ll have to see what happens.

Now I just need to actually play. Not sure if that is going to happen tonight. If not, then hopefully tomorrow. We’ll see.
