Greenchild Tribus Drive

Postby greenm01 » 09 Nov 2014, 15:16

Hi Folks,

Last year I decided to take the plunge and start my own small business. The primary purpose of this endeavor is to serve as a creative outlet and enable me to keep building more gear and playing guitar, although I don't plan on quitting my day job any time soon. Can't get enough of that soldering iron!

Anyway, as a means to attract visitors to my site and interest in my pedal, we decided to try a holiday giveaway contest. Details are on our website if anyone wants to check it out.

Tribus Drive is a three channel, random access, multi-effects pedal with three uniquely voiced circuits.

Cool idea, not many three channel dirt pedals on the boutique market, and yours looks pretty nice too. Just one thing, the bottom knobs look awfully close to the footswitches - Are they recessed or something?

Thanks. The footswitches are taller than the knobs, and there's plenty of clearance. The pedal has been field tested by a few pro guitarists and they didn't have any issues. I tried to make the front panel design as compact and efficient as possible, while giving as much clearance between components as possible.

Here's a link to several build photos of the PCB.

I would love to, but I'm unwilling to authorise an app just to enter a "free" competition. Good luck with the enterprise, though.

Yeah I'd stomp the scoop and level pots right through the enclosure as if the knobs were never even there. I'm a big fella with big feet in big boots who plays with his eyes closed most of the time. A footswitch that close to a pot is the kiss of death and has kept my money away from countless nice sounding pedals. Looks fancy though. Best of luck to ya.

Interesting.... Tribus Drive has yet to complain of my size 12 boots slamming down on the switches.
