The Pirate Shift is a Chorus/Vibrato merged with a PT2399 based delay. It also has the ability to modulate over an octave as well as control the waveform of the modulator, giving you a huge range of tonal options. It works from a standard chorus to a crazy modulation device.

This kit contains the PCB and all necessary parts. The enclosure can be selected, please select 6 knobs for 6,3mm shaft separately.

4 from 5 Lovely pedal

This was a pretty cool build.
Got the V2.0 version of the board which meant the drilling template of the pedal thats available now (v1) wasnt useable, so make sure you check the board before drilling yourself!
Also the V2 version has an extra (optional) LED which means you have to add this to the BOM yourself.
Oh and make sure to have a RLED extra otherwise your on/off LED wont work/will be damaged!
Snug fitting in the case :)
Really loving the sound of pedal!

5 from 5 From a subtle effect to an extreme pitch shifting modulation, I highly recommend.

It was among my first builds, and i had some trouble to get it right by myself.
The pcbguitarmania pedal builders group has been a great help.

On my Pirate Shift, the optocoupler, (D4 and LDR1, big component with four legs), in charge of the modulation, didnt work. At first I only had a delay effect.
As mentioned in the instructions, and following the advice from pcbguitarmania, I used a photo resistor and a Led instead of the optocoupler.
The Led i used first was red and the modulation was weak when the delay was turned down. I had also some background noises when the delay was active.
I changed the red Led for an orange one, shielded the photoresistor and the Led with black tape, I shortened the wiring, and these problems are solved now .
I noticed this pedal needs a good quality power supply to be silent.

There is something singular about modulated delays, because i cant get quiet the same effect using two pedals (delay + modulation) together.
The modulation is very beautifull and easily adjustable thanks to the blend and waveshape pots.
It goes from a subtle effect to an extreme pitch shifting modulation, that you can even freeze thanks to the feedback pot. Once you get familiar with all six controls, you can dial some settings that give really interesting and original sounds.
The pirate shift combines very well with other pedals, before or after it .
It is the kind of project that makes me loose all sense of time as I try different settings, I highly recommend this project .
