Ikea Delay

Materials: Ordning, Music PCB Echo Base, Heath Glue, Cd Cake box

Description: First of all, What the hell is the Ikea Delay?
Well it’s a guitar effect built inside a Ordning.

- Buy the Delay pcb from Music PCB

- Buy the electronic components and the knobs from Mouser electronics or Musik Ding or Banzai or your usual supplier.

- Assemble the pcb, I built a “full optional” Echo base with most of the mods suggested by music pcb (Tail, Kill wsitch, Lfo mods, ecc) plus a starve knob (is the big one)

- Put the circuit inside the Ordning, it’s very simple, it fits perfectly and you don’t even have to drill the enclosure to fit the pots and the switches in !!! :-) You just need to enlarge a couple of holes …

- Take a Cd cake box you don’t use anymore, open it, take the bottom of the box, cut the cylinder.

- Take the Ordning (with the circuit inside), fit it into the box bottom, take the heath glue and stick them togheter.

You’ re done, the Ikea Delay is ready! ;-)

    Well done! For years, I’ve looked at my Ordning and contemplated turning it into some kind of patchable mini-synthesiser. A banana-jack socket in every hole

  2. what is it?
    it is a guitar effect, an echo in particular.
    what it does?
    it takes a sound and repeats it, just like the natural echo you hear in the caves.
    wonder how it sounds like?
    well, this a short demo I did


    why is it in the garden?
    well because it’s the weirdest place to place a guitar effect … :-)

    @Hobimi Terapimi glad that this inspired you! :-)

    @Keter yes it seems a dalek, funny!

  5. loved it sooo much really did :)
    …now I am looking to my IKEAs to convert them anything… :D
    do not stop hacking…

  6. I’ve been sitting here staring at these pictures, asking myself the same exact questions…he calls it a guitar effect, but why does he have pictures of it in a garden with a dog sniffing it?

    ok, so what IS this again and why is it in the garden? To delay flower growth?
