    Thought I would put this up to show some of my builds and mods. @Raiders757 made a reference to the new carbon copy delay so I figured I would start with this one. I modded my carbon copy with a Molten Voltage Delaytion and get pretty much everything the deluxe does minus the 1.2 second delay time.

    I have 4 presets, quarter/eighth/dotted eighth subdivisions, modulation controls and tap tempo. Granted I got mine when they sold them as kits and you could mod them yourself. They quit selling the kits because people kept screwing up their pedals and calling them about it.
    If I want 1.2 seconds of dirty delay then I use my other pedal tray I built from a rebote 2.5 kit and added tap to using a taptation chip set. I call it my cosmic ocean delay. All of the indicators are in clear shafted pots do the knobs light up.

    This was my first DIY build. It's taken oon several changes until I finally found what I wanted. It started as normal BYOC envelope filter/fixed wah. Then I saw where somebody modded it into a light actuated wah so I had to figure it out... not hard really. But I didn't like having tho bend over tip flip switches so I made the final rendering.
    My wife, who is a big Supermanfan thought I should name it the KAL-EL because of the two different personalities of the pedal. Then it had Bizzaro added to tree mix.

    The switch on the side tired on the Bizzaro setting (a light dependant resistor for the wah)

    This is how it ended with all stomp switches. I didn't put and decals on out this time because I liked the pearled paint too much to cover it up.
    Here it is in action.

    This one is an SBN Big Daddy Amp Blaster and an SBN L'il Eagle housed in the same box. I also put an order changer switch in it to either boost the drive or drive the boost. Eventually I will get the Led's added to show which side is first in the signal. For now the switch does it (just really have to pay attention in the dark)

    SOOOOOO, I couldn't help myself and I had to mod the Carbon Copy again. This time I made an infinity switch (blue) for it along with the Molten Voltage Delaytion (red). I wanted to put it into the same box but it just wouldn't fit.

    So I hooked everything up lady night and stepped on the infinity switch and... only one repeat. Sure enough, I hooked it to the wrong leg ood the regen knob. Had to take the CC apart again and move the wire tho the other leg.

    Love it, man! I've gotten the parts together to build a delay with what I call a "dub" switch to send a single beat into infinite decaying repeats, which shows up a bunch in reggae.
    I'm a bit overloaded with projects at the moment though, I'm not sure when I'll be able to get to it.

    Right now mine goes into oscillation but I think I may put a resistor in it to make it only repeat w/o the oscillation.

    These technically aren't mods but builds, rather. Since you can no longer buy the Kwm Klone which is a spot on replica of the original. I got my hands on some circuit boards from the guy that made them so I could build some myself. Then I sourced all of the same parts ad the original except for the brand of the pots.
    I made a special limited run of 4 pedals and made one for each of the 4 horses of the apocalypse: Pestilence, War, Famine and Death. Each was painted it's respective color and the leds match too.

    I'll have better pictures tomorrow when I can tune them all on.
