Pedal made from a circuit bent hanna montanta toy guitar board. Sprayed a vintage metal box for the enclosure. Not the best, but I'm still newer to this stuff and learning alot from this forum.

It works! Cheesy

It's R.G.'s Phase 90 Plus, using my own layout. Fets are 2N5952. LED flashes green in time with the LFO when bypassed, and flashes red to yellow in time with the LFO when in use. I plan on some minor modifications in the way some of the controls work to better define their ranges, so I haven't stuck the standoffs yet.

It sounds really good.

Brilliant work.

Finally after 1 year of making, testing, playing and design, I finish my tube preamp Di box.

@alex spaceman: You should have drilled the holes before you applied the decals! If borings (correct word? "Bohrspäne" in german) get between the enclosure and the decal, it could be destroyed...

Terrific looking build Niki, as good as it gets, and brilliant idea for the tube retainers!

^^ Thanks, Dave!

This is one of my project which I start doing first for me. I'm bass player and I spend really a lot of time of thining, tessting playing etc. Yes, It becomes great unit, but typical for a first PCB desing there are some small thinks to fix next time to become perfect PCB design. Making PCB for tube unit with a low noise for studio is not a easy job too.

@Nikolay

Do you work in a PCB fab house? It seems that every post of your builds contain a fabbed and screened PCB  Shocked

Do you do this yourself or do you have them done in a fab house?

Govmnt, I work at home. Some of my stompboxes are with doublesided pcb when they are more than 4-5. Of course I order these PCB's. If I need to make just single stompbox, I make it myself using laser printer technology.

And where do you get those enclousures? And graphics on pedals? On some previous pedals/units I have noticed faceplates. How do you make theese? Etch or laser engraving?

When I need coustom enclosure, I make it on 3d. Then from 3d I get the sketch for laser cut. Then bending.
Some frontpannels are from black anofized aluminum sheet or from steinless steel. Both of them are laser engraved. All other labels are with silk screen.

I got the enclosure for a forum member here. It was a b*tch to drill. I had to grind afterwards to get all the burrs off.

Thanks. What a fun effect! Smiley

I realized that I never posted pictures of my multi-booster after I got it all put together and (mostly) tamed. I learned a lot on this one.

PNP Rangemaster -> Crackle Not Okay -> Minibooster -> Tone control (based on Colorsound Overdriver) -> Volume control.

Each boost is switchable, and when they're all off, it's a buffered tone/volume control. Really it's a utility box.

Mike, that's god. Am I right in thinking you have a PNP booster and an NPN booster (colorsound) in the same box?  Did that cause power/grounding scheme headaches?

Had you built the effects separately for testing, or did you envision this as a complete whole from the start?

There's a Max-1044 circuit for the Rangemaster. The other boosters each have their own power filter, as if they were each in their own enclosure. Only the tone control is based on the Colorsound Overdriver... sort of. Colorsound values mixed w/ the opamp setup of the Xotic RC Booster.

I breadboarded each section individually until I sort of understood how they worked, drew up the board, and built it. Big mistake. I should have taken the time to squeeze them all onto the breadboard at the same time. It would have saved me a bunch of effort in patching in filtering to stop oscillation and ugly distortion.

It's still not perfect, but nothing ever is. Smiley
