The Dark Moby is a limited edition delay pedal being release on Black Friday 2018 with a 2nd run in June 2019
It is a heavily modified version of The Moby Dick. While the standard Moby Dick focuses on emulating tape delays, The Dark Moby tries to emulate the heavy filtering used in analog BBD designs.
The Dark Moby started a couple years ago as an experiment. As many of you know, I am a lover of the PT2399 delay chip due to its versatility and amazing texture. I have been able to tame and master it through the years. About two years ago, I had an off day and decided that I wanted to create a delay voicing that was my own personal, ideal delay tone. I spent the entire day tweaking and modifying an original Moby Dick unit I had laying around. The result is a smeary, warm, dark, & organic delay line with thick modulation.
That modified BBD-style Moby Dick hung around my shop for about two years. The Moby Dick already had its signature sounds, so I didn't want to mess around with changing it; the two circuits were so drastically different that it wasn't feasible to add a toggle switch or two to switch back and forth. The Karman Line and Wash ended up with different voicings that worked better with their application.
So this poor circuit sat on a shelf unused for close to two years.... never seeing the light of day.
I have retrofitted the V2 Moby with to match that poor circuit sitting on a shelf and now its being made available in a small batch during the Black Friday weekend with a 2nd run in June 2019. Only 30 units available to start with a discounted price.
