Blueshift Chorus (BOSS® DC-2 Dimension C clone) now available
Today I’m excited to release the Blueshift Chorus! The Blueshift is a clone or work-alike of the BOSS® DC-2 Dimension C, which is to many the most revered of the BOSS pedals. It’s easily one of the most compact pedals ever manufactured, taking most of the circuitry from its rack-mounted older brother the Roland Dimension-D (as well as a large dose of engineering tenacity) and fitting it into the standard BOSS form factor.
This is the first time a PCB has been released for this circuit to the DIY community, and as you might expect, it’s also one of the most complex DIY projects out there—just as long as you don’t poke around the synth DIY groups. The Blueshift fits in a 125-B enclosure, so it takes up no more pedalboard space than an original DC-2. Despite this, it uses all through-hole components, including flat-mounted 1/4W resistors (even the original used standing 1/8W!). The mono/stereo option is preserved, and there are two options available for switching.
As with the L5 Preamp, there is a Mouser parts spreadsheet available so you can easily order 95% of the parts you’ll need for the build.
I am very excited to be able to resurrect this incredible circuit and give you a challenging and rewarding project to occupy your time this summer. And as a little bonus, the Blueshift is on sale for 20% off through the end of the week, along with all other PCBs in the store!
