TG-Music Analog Slapback Echo and Delay

Here it is. Finally a traditional and time tested (see what I did there?) BBD analog delay for the authentic warm tones. tg-music Slapback Echo has a 100ms maximum delay time for those authentic 50s rock n' roll and rockabilly sounds. And tg-music Analog Delay has a 200ms maximum delay time for the more versatile uses.

tg-music analog delay Schematic These (or this?) pedal is based on Scott Swartz old AD-3208 delay from 2003. I build one way back then, and then years just went by and everything else was way more interesting. Those were the wild and crazy times in boutique pedal industry and DIY circles as well. Good days, I still sometimes go and read some old freestompboxes.org (the forbidden forum) threads.

Only difference between these pedals is the BBD (Bucket Brigade Delay) chip in them. Slapback Echo uses a one BL3208 and Analog Delay has one NM3205 in it. These give me the delay times I use the most. I don't need longer delay times. But two MN3205 would give a 400ms delay and that would fill the most modern needs.

And talking about modern... these are not. No tap tempo or precise "down to millisecond" controls. I treat and use these delays as I would use a real life corridors. 100ms is about 35 meters and 200ms is about 70 meters. I can make these "corridors" smaller, but 75 meters is long enough!

I had more text here, but now it's gone and that sucks. Anyway, here's pictures.
