I’ve realised that there may be people out there who love the look of the pedal, but have no need for a delay pedal – maybe you already have a Strymon or something more fully-featured. With this in mind I’ll be making a limited run of pedals with an overdrive circuit instead.
The flux capacitor drive will retain the same aesthetics, but include a versatile overdrive circuit – standard controls for drive, tone and level, with a switch to change between from Tubescreamer style softer overdrive or RAT like higher gain distortion.
Like the original delay, it also has a backlit roentgen meter for keeping an eye on the plutonium level (this meter needle reacts to how hard you play.)
And of course got the MPH meter set at the crucial 88.0mph …
The pedal takes standard 9v centre negative and the current draw is around 60-70ma. As with all my other pedals, I would recommend the use of an isolated power supply to avoid any noise issues.
The dimensions of the pedal are 120mm deep by 90mm wide.
How your pedal is made …
I’ll be as honest as possible now. I don’t want people thinking 4114 Effects is some massive company that churns out pedals by the bucket load.
I’m just one guy who builds pedals in a small workshop in his house. I never expected this little pedal to go viral. I’m always overwhelmed and humbled by how many enquiries I get to build these.
I’m make these pedals one-by-one – assembling PCBs from scratch and cutting / drilling / wiring everything by hand. The enclosures are professionally laser-cut for accuracy to speed up the process, everything else is hand made. I have been a little optimistic with previous build time estimates, so I’m going to give a more realistic 2-3 month estimate (more likely to be closer to the 2 month mark than 3). If you’re OK with this then please click the button below. What I will say is that I always work as many hours as possible over the coming weeks to get the pedals out as quickly as I can.
I usually personalise my pedals with the owners name. If you’d like this option, there is a message field at checkout – please enter the name you would like on the pedal.
Please note that this ordering link is for the standard overdrive pedal, with glowing capacitor, active VU meter and speed set to 88.0mph. If you have any special requirements – different circuit inside, ideas for options etc. please email me to discuss before ordering. Thanks!
Ordering info – Important!
Please take note of the two options in the drop down menu when buying the pedal. If you live outside the UK you must use the international orders option to cover the additional shipping and insurance costs.
For my friends / potential customers in the USA / Australia / Canada etc. – I am aware there will be duty to pay when you receive the pedal. I am informed that for the USA it should be around 4.7% plus a small handling fee. I will fill out all the relevant forms over here to help speed the pedal through customs, but any import duty that’s payable is solely the customers responsibility. All pedals will be sent fully tracked and usually require a signature on delivery.
I will keep a database of who ordered and when, so the pedals will be assembled in a first come, first served basis.
