@ stezza. yeah I made those layouts using coraldraw. I used the spacing of a perfboard and drawn all the components in the right size.
I can then move all the pieces around like a puzzle, and mark the holes on a perfboard which i use as a drill template.
I will finish my coffee first and draw you a clear project file.

@ slagathor7 nice vibe!

@slagathor...cool design,,,, but whats that yellow .....erm...... fuzzy @#$%er...(i think i just answered that) ;)


The Yellow fuzzy thing you see is the corner of my Honey Bee clone (the yellow shark from madbean)
Yeah it is a little cheesy. But it is a bit of a conversation piece when people see my gear.

I can warm my foot on it in the winter :D
 
If you want to see a picture of the pedal and the rest of the pedalboard you can go to this link on the gear page.

No build instructions but the mods are all well documented on the net.. most of them are covered on the beavis screamer page .. link

Here's a delay pedal project at the request of a talented bass pal from the BassChat forum; This is Sonic Kitchen's Time Machine.
PCB from tonepad.com, circuit modified with send-return loop and an op-amp buffer.



Only the delay signal gets routed thru the send-return loop so you can apply quite a subtle effect or a deeply shocking one to the repeats while still getting the clean dry signal pushing through first.
Here the completed circuit routed through the buffer is bveing readied for testing before boxing up.


Here's the finished pedal guts shot, this is about as close as I can get to neat and tidy ;)


Enclosure graphics, finished pedal


Found a sexy little indicator LED to install from ebay which is pre-wired to pulse though blue/gree/purple/orange and guaranteed to partially blind direct eye contact in a dark pub gig.

Newest build. Been in the works for a while. Felt like getting ridiculous. Looks like a standard Civil War spec muff on the outside:



But then you open it up and BAM. ORANGE DROP CAPS EVERYWHERE. Put a break out board in there so I could fit all the caps snugly. Perfect fit. A/B'd it to my original Civil War/Tall Font and this one sounds a little less nasal, but almost as good. Madbean Board!

^^^LMAO!!! I thought I was being ridiculous...^^^

I have never done stripboard, OR SMD... so I knocked them both out in one shot.
I said I'd make one, and I did: SMD ChipDrive OverDrive:



I don't know if it works yet. I'll test it out in the morning... my eyes hurt. I made a couple of pieces of "SMD Stripboard", .025" traces @ .050" pitch. Next SMD I'm going for something crazy... maybe a ringmod or something.  ::)

Very nice!  I've been toying with using SMD. I've done some minor SMD repair such as replacing SMD LEDs, and I had to do it all under a magnifier. I've been thinking about getting some of these SMD prototype boards:
http://electroboards.com/proddetail.php?prod=SMDG15X15-EB

Each pad has two holes. After you solder the SMD component to one side of the pad, there is an exposed hole on the other end of the pad for a through hole component or jumper wire.  Looks like it would make DIY SMD easier.

A couple of recent builds:

Breakout/patch Box wired for a very specific purpose in my rig. The Invader logo was made by drilling out the appropriate holes on a blank PCB to produce a stencil which I just spray painted.
I stuffed up the drilling on the left hand side a little, but overall I think it looks pretty cool...



This one's not really a build as such, but I wanted to try the home made light plate thing so I rehoused this (commercially available) pedal:



Here's a simple and small Strymon Favourite switch clone:

nice work, how many led's did you put in the light plate?

Cheers  :)

Just the one LED, but those blue suckers are super bright! (I actually put a higher value resistor on the bezel LED as it was far too bright with just the minimum required)

I'm thinking of putting a light plate in the Invader pedal aswell. I've got one of the proper light plates you can buy from the shop here for that. It is unfortunately about 1mm thicker than my home made one, which means that the standard Hammond screws aren't long enough  :( I'm just waiting for some replacement screws to arrive...

Wow, the Vortex Vibe looks genius in every respect.
And Skull-serv: the orange drop explosion made me L O L.

Here's my first build since finding this thread, my first build with the input on the right rather than the left, my first build with a negative center DC jack, my first build with a stomp switch, and coveted white washer.

Thanks to you all for inspiring me to dive into proper looking stompboxes. And thanks Madbean for sharing the karate chop.

I can just about get away with it by countersinking the holes on the back a little, gives you just that extra 1mm to get the thread to bite.

The turret construction makes for some sweet lookin' circuitry on your builds!
