  • VIntage-style delay

    I usually find a little project for Christmas to keep me occupied and this year I put together a vintage-style delay unit. My wife spotted the enclosure in a box of junk and encouraged me to buy it for the look so I gave 2 for what turned out to be a three channel passive mixer that was very crudely made. I thought it may make an amp-top delay unit to sit with my Reverberocket. The control positions were determined by what was already there and I put together a basic foot switch cut from the side of a PC enclosure. The aim was to build it entirely from parts and materials I already had lying around.

    The internal circuit is a PT2399 described here, but with an opamp filter and some changes to the mixer stage as well as an LED limiter

    It works superbly. Does tails, very little noise on the repeats and will do infinite repeats without going out of control (but will do this as well if needed).

    Wow, that has the look of stuff I built in the 1960s. Cool.

      Sounds like a winner, and like Enzo I'm diggin' the retro-primitive look. Even the dirt on the knobs - yusss! Way kool!
      Enjoy. Every. Sandwich.

        Oh, the Dymo Labels really sell it for me. I remember when that stuff came out when I was a kid. You couldn't keep the Dymo Labels off of stuff.

          I remember getting the"gun" type. I'd run around the house playing "phaser" with it, spitting out random labels & also "THIS IS MINE" on all our food. Good times. At least I thought so. Mom hated it.

          The real kicker is seeing them on amps that now command $30k...

            My Dymo labeller is a Dymo-Mite original and I also have one of the gun types. I'm looking for another Dymo-Mite with a metal wheel (or just the wheel) as mine is plastic and won't embosss metal tapes. I don't think there are many of these in the UK but they crop up regularly on USA Ebay. I have a lot of late 70s/early 80s tape that is still good.

            I also like to pair up Dymo with some 70s self-adhesive heavy duty wood-grain vinyl for a retro look.
