Build Your Own Clone (2006)
The BYOC Lazy Sprocket kit is an exact clone of the Boss SG-1 Slow Gear, but modified for true bypass. The originals have become highly collectible and naturally the prices have gone through the roof. The Lazy Sprocket is an envelope volume swell effect. It's great for pedal steel licks and violin like tones. It is not a reverse delay effect as many people assume, but with a little practice, you can get reverse delay like effects from it. This is a fairly easy build. It would be ideal for anyone who likes to use a volume pedal or finds themselves riding their guitar's volume knob with their pinky finger a lot. The BYOC Lazy Sprocket is also a great way to find out why people are going so crazy over the SG-1 without having to drop some serious coin.
