B.Y.O.C. Soaring Skillet Kit


The Ibanez FP-777 Flying Pan was one of the coolest, tripped out, guitar effects ever. That is fact!

In addition to having stereo panning, it also had one of the best sounding phasers ever produced. It had knobs for phase rate, phase feedback, and pan rate. It had a phaser on/off footswitch and a panning on/off footswitch. It could do just phasing, just panning, or both phasing and panning together. It also had a 3-way rotary switch that allowed the phasing to be heard through the right output, the left output, or both (stereo).  The original version of the FP-777 Flying Pan costs a ridiculous amount of money now.  Even the reissues (which there were only 777 made) cost a lot, and they weren't even the same as the originals. The originals used optocouplers in the phase shifting circuit which were absolutely key to they pedal's unique tone. The reissues used JFETs instead of optocouplers and they sound more like an MXR Phase 90 than a Flying Pan. Build Your Own Clone (BYOC) could not locate a good source of the original HVT Optocouplers that were used in the original Flying Pan, so they had their own hermetically sealed custom optocouplers made just for the Soaring Skillet kit.

The BYOC Soaring Skillet is 100% identical to the original Ibanez FP-777 Flying Pan. BYOC used the same dual-element optocouplers and TL022 dual op amps. They even kept all the switching/routing exactly the same.
