DOD stereo flanger mods

I have had this old DOD Flanger kicking around in my parts box for about 10 years. I finally got around to testing the mods on it, and WOW! It’s a killer. From added LFO tones and noise to delay-like repeats The mods are pretty simple, you replace the 3 internal trim pots with comparable-value … Read more

I may have to record another video using the Dub Box Delay so you can hear the true LoFi reggae glory. Simple pitch … Read more
