This is a lot of stuff that might not be important to you, but I like to be thorough. If you don’t want to read through all the options, the stock build is as follows: Repeats, Delay, and Mix external; trails bypass; in a copper 1590B enclosure with the Yorick scene. Base price is $130 plus actual shipping. Demo here.
Payment is due upon completion of the pedal to your specifications. As soon as we have worked out any details, put an X here:
___ Ready to build
Please tell me what kind of guitar/pickups you use.
Just put a little X next to what you want and fill in the blacks if needed. Please read the returns policy before selecting any mods that will physically alter the enclosure.
___ 1590B (stock — this is a “regular” sized case, like MXR pedals)
___ 125B (slightly larger)
___ 1590BB (add $5) — for people with huge feet 🙂
I do not keep a specific enclosure color in stock for this effect (and no two people have ever chosen the same color), so the choice is yours.
Base color: Basic enclosure colors come from Smallbear and are included in the pedal’s cost. If you want a different base color, Pedal Parts Plus has lots of options, but there will be an upcharge in the actual cost difference.
___ standard art (with the with the Yorick scene)
___ custom art depicting ________________.
Custom art is always free.
Extra External controls
A 1590B has room for a maximum of four pots. I could fit a fifth if I were really trying, but it’s kind of a squeeze and makes the knobs really close together.
I recommend leaving the volume trimmer inside because I don’t find volume adjustments really necessary with this design, and there isn’t a ton of range to it. Remember that the Hamlet has tails bypass, so the volume never changes when the effect is switched on and off. The tone control might be useful in some instances.
___ External tone control (add $5 for the knob and pot)
___ External volume (add $5 for the knob and pot)
This is a footswitch that oscillates the feedback, like turning the repeats knob up all the way. An early customer asked for it, so I’ve added it as an option. It requires a 125B or larger. Be sure to specify if you want a horizontal or vertical layout with this.
___ Infinity switch (add $10)
___ Tails (stock, and highly recommended) — only the input to the delay is switched, so repeats carry over when bypassed. The dry path is never bypassed. It uses the nice alpha switch from the optical bypass, too.
__ True mechanical bypass. I’m using alpha switches for these now, which seem to be a little nicer than the blue switches, but this is the same type of mechanical bypass most people are familiar with.
__ Optical bypass (add $5, requires a 125B or larger). This is a good bypass option if you often have trouble with switch pops in true bypass pedals. Although I take every precaution with the true bypass, the simple truth is that with some gear, a pop might still be audible, because true bypass can never be perfect. Optical bypass also uses a really nice quieter alpha switch and an opto-FET chip. The result is a “nearly true bypass” with no effect bleedthrough or guitar loading in bypass, and no switch pops.
__ Millennium II bypass — This is a true bypass scheme that uses the softer Alpha switch that’s in the optical bypass. It’s an active bypass for lighting the LED, but the signal is still fully bypassed.
If you’ve thought of something that you can’t imagine your Hamlet being complete without, ask — it might be possible. But I’m kinda partial to the stock build!
