    Danelectro Chicken Salad.
    I offer Chicken Salad rehousing of your unit or I offer my modified version: the Chicken Vibe- feel free to contact me for pricing.

    My Chicken Vibe is not just a rehouse.....I add an additional board for a wider sweep plus some other extras..

    The pedal is True Bypass – no tone sucking here !

    The large speed knob is foot adjustable.

    The intensity knob is self explanatory.

    The shape knob is the internal trimpot moved to a full sized pot on the top of the pedal.

    Manipulating this knob changes the shape of the sound.

    The trim knob varies the voltage going to an LFO that controls the speed.

    Varying the trim knob will let you set the speed from slow slow slow all the way to up to a super fast speed.

    An LED has been added that pulses along with the LFO so you can see what the speed is set at a glance.

    9V adapter only – no provision made for a battery as these pedals were known to be horrible battery eaters in the first place.

    Testimonials:

  • ”It just sounds so full and thick and truly is better than any UV or clone I've used.”
  • ”Makes my Univibe clone sound wheezy”
  • ”innovative, pro, a close runner in the vibe wars!' Five stars ..”
  • ”I actually started getting close to what I consider the Holy Grail 'buttery' vibe.”
  • "Got my modded CS back from Dan Zink today....in a word AMAZING!!! What great work...and everything is professional. I would put this up against any vibe out there right now...I used to have a MojoVibe and this thing is comparable....I get great UVibe tones and so much more. Thanks again Dan...it was a fast turnaround and a pleasure doing business with you. Keep up the great work! "

    (03-20-2010) To answer a lot of questions I've been receiving lately.

    I am still building Octa Puss(s).

    I recently lucked into a stash of the "original style" AP boards - as well as the newer layout that will fit in a smaller box.

    I also have a VERY limited supply of the original MN3005 BBD chips - or I can build it with the newer (and less expensive) 3205 chips.

    Please email for pricing.

    I've also added as an option the ability to double the delay time of the Octa (up to 600ms). More pics here.
    Oqta Puss available in a 125B box with either MN3005 or V3205 - email for pricing. More pics here.
    I think I'm a little bit of a delay whore.......
