At long last, here it is, being tested with the Line6 M13:

  1. Matt Elford says:

    Awesome Dave, I’m sure it sounds as good as it looks.

    Looking forward to using mine when it ships!



  2. Karsten says:

    Awesome! Does it sound as good as it looks?

    • trabantland says:

      Sounds great Karsten. Actually I found I like it before the M13 better than after- even when in unity gain mode it really improves the sound of the delays.

  3. Andrew says:

    Great! I’m looking forward to giving the SDD 3KP a home in Scotland.

  4. P.-F. says:

    Sehr gut Man ! 😉

  5. Craig says:

    Awesome! Can’t wait to get it! I want to see how it is with the Axe FX.

  6. Jules says:


    Not long now… maybe I can finally convince the band to do a U2 cover. Probably “Stories For Boys”, knowing my singer. Not SDD-3KP era, but oh well.

    • trabantland says:

      Thanks. The SDD3000 preamp covers the early Memory Man era type sounds with a good modulated delay (and AC30) just fine. Supposedly some of Red Rocks was re-recorded in the studio with the SDD3000. I don’t know is this is true or not, but the SDD is great for early U2.

      • Jules says:

        Great, currently using a Malekko 616 in my Loopmaster switcher and a Line 6 Echo Park at the end of the chain. I’m sure your preamp will get me there.

        Currently using a AC30 CCH with a Avatar cab loaded with a Weber Blue Dog Alnico and Eminence Wizard. With the right tubes the CC isn’t that bad.

  7. Jeffrey says:

    Dave, did you make a clip of the SDD3-K test with the M-13? Anxious to hear it with the M-13, as that is what I will be using my SDD-3K pedal with.

    Pedal looks sharp!

    Any Trab-Fuzz’s to be made anytime? If so, ballpark figure on the price and when you might be making them?

    • trabantland says:

      Thanks Jeffrey! I will do that and make a clip. I think the M-13 sounds really good with the M13 in front of it.

    More pictures!!!

    Actually, what I’d really like is some sound clips of the preamp without any delay coloring the sound. If it’s not too much trouble 🙂

    Can’t wait to get one! Any idea when they will start shipping out?

  10. trabantland says:

    Jeffrey – the build has been going along nicely and I’m shipping pedals out once they are finished and tested. I’ve busy so I haven’t had much time to post here on the blog.
