I was wondering what happened to that pedal ?

it seems like it hasn't been stolen in 1999, but it's never been used since Washing Machine... that's such a rare and crazy (and expensive) effect pedal, I'm surprised that SY had this in their arsenal but didn't use it more often...

the picture of it in the Washing Machine booklet

 



and you can see Thurston using it on that Diamond Sea video :

such a great effect, too bad it's so rare !

It's in the pedal porn museum now, making a beautiful racket.

That's effin' incredible.

But I think it's one of those effects one should only use on one song. A novelty, a bit of ear candy. Otherwise one runs the risk of having it define one's "sound," y'know?

I don't think I'd WANT a bunch of SY songs to use this. It's more mysterious if it only pops up once.

It is rare, but you can build one yourself if you get into diy pedals. It’s a pretty well documented project.

Very weird stuff. Didn’t realize SY had used it. Does it just show up on Diamond Sea?

yes, I think so !
we're actually talking about building one with a friend who is a real DIY pedal wizard... I'd like to get a simple version, only with the phase shifter making that yayayaya sound (no expression pedal, no fuzz)...
