Was this the very first BBD delay?
Tabletop machine, self oscillating AND from past internet auctions and reviews it is apparent, nobody knows how to determine if theirs is in working order (😂), because it is very temperamental and does a lot of different things.. But when it behaves, it’s magic!
Echo, reverb and has a very weird chorus.
Amazing and beautiful, nothing like a tape echo or a memory man.. Far less predictable!
A delay with character.
Syd Barrett’s hairy boost.. VERY WARM AND THICK. Perfect counterpart to Syd’s favourite amp settings, basically treble at 10.
Perfunctory build on eyelet board, with external vero for transistor testing, using 2N2613 as per original.
Very surprised by the final tone, i really like it.. Sounds very nice.
I broke out the wem copicat to have a better idea if it nails syd’s tone.

I also made a quick little excuse for a tune to test it further.. sorry for the hurried and far from great mix:
