Rhythm & Detonation

Dirty Little Sambas

I made this pedal for Tyler Thalken. I used madbean's grapevine project, which is based on the Catalinbread Dirty Little Secret pedal.

Tyler decided to call it dirty little sambas, and I loved the idea because Adidas Sambas are my favorite shoe. I pretty much wear them until they're destroyed and then buy another pair, which is why when I looked in my closet, I had three and a half pairs.

This is a great overdrive/distortion pedal that always impresses me with how low-noise the circuit is. I painted the enclosure brown, and the graphics are of the sole of a Samba shoe. I used a yellow LED and cream-colored knobs.
