David Byrne pedalboard art

Posted on 01 February 2011 by diode

Came across a picture of this artwork … Awesome! The idea is that you would have to walk across the pedals while walking into the gallery, making random pedals turn on and off with a loop playing through them.

Moog debuts Tarus III pedals at NAMM 2010

Posted on 20 January 2010 by diode


Moog was showing off their newly unveiled update of the Taurus bass pedals. They looked great in person and it seems as if the design draws heavily from the Little Phatty line of synths. As an owner of the Little Phatty I can say that the bass sounds in the Taurus III are going to be astounding. Taurus II will be a limited quantity product with less than 1000 units produced.

From the moogmusic site: Long requested by many of our very best customers and used by the likes of Rush, The Police, Genesis, Led Zeppelin, Phil Collins, Asia, Weezer, and many more. This is a one time opportunity to own a new set with a new warranty but one absolutely faithful to the original Taurus I sound.

Moog has combined the guitar and bass MuRF pedals and added a full midi implementation in the new MF-105M. At $479 it’s definitely not cheap but it is very cool sounding.

Custom Echo Park – internal shots

Posted on 24 March 2009 by diode

Internal wiring isn’t quite as neat as it could be but…oh well. All of the guitar signals are made with shielded cable. The cabling for the pots, toggle switch, power supply and tap footswitch are unshielded since they are all DC control voltages or DC supply.


Mounting the module pcb to the main pcb is the most difficult part of the conversion. It’s hard soldered so if this baby breaks, it’s pretty much game over.
