OpenStomp Coyote-1, Beavis Board DIY Stompboxes

Posted 20 Jun 2008 in Effects, Hardware

The world of DIY effects has become even flashier with the introduction of two different kits for creating your custom effects.

  • The Beavis Board from Beavis Audio is a kit consisting of a breakout box, breadboards and a collection of components that enables you build a huge array of stompbox circuits including overdrives, distortions, fuzzes, filters, amplifiers, tremolos, noise generators, oscillators, and more.  This one looks mighty interesting, as it allows you to not only tailor your sound but also learn about the different electronic gadgetry learn how they work to shape your guitar’s signal.

A complete kit is a little steep at $249, but is great value in terms of making stomp box construction and tinkering accessible to the everyday person.

  • The OpenStomp Coyote-1 is an open source audio effects processor which users are able to tweak to behave any way they like.  With the Coyote-1 users can develop custom audio effects in software (like distortion, echo, chorus etc.), mix multiple effects to build “patches”, and exchange those effects and patches with the OpenStomp community. A companion Windows application (OpenStomp Workbench) allows Users to combine effects into patches graphically, and to move patches and effects between the Coyote-1 device and their PC’s disk.

This one is still under development, so stay tuned.


If you’re the type that is not content with your current effects pedals or boards, and want to take your custom sound a step further, be sure to look into these.
