This is really a great sounding reverb designed by DeadAstronaut at diystompboxes. Go to the original thread to learn more about it. This has a couple of features not usually found in a reverb as buffered bypass with tails and feedback oscillation switch. It also has a unique mix control where you have to adjust the volume control depending on the mix to match effect/bypass volume. I built mine with a Medium brick but this would sound great with a Short one too.
Built this one today for a friend. Works great! :)
Great work on the layout! There's one cut too many on the board (under the 1K resistor between the 2N5457 and 2N7000) but it doesn't hurt. Also, could be worth adding a note on the layout that brick pin 2 and 4 needs to connected to ground.

Is there an "easy" way of wiring this for true bypass on a toogle switch? No problem with the buffer, as it seems to be pretty transparent. Is just that I would like to have the option of totally cut the wash out with my foot.
Another thing I noticed, is that when I hit the naga viper with a considerable volume boost, something strange happes when the chasm is off. When reaching a certain point, as I go increasing the boost volume it triggers the reverb for a while, (like when you kick a twin reverb with your foot and you hear a reverb thunder), even when the chasm is in bypass, so there must be something going on in there that overloads the buffer or something.
