Hey there folks, my name is Ken and I live in downtown Toronto, and have become obsessed with pedals in the past few months.
I don't even own a guitar, just a Yamaha keyboard from the 90s which I use to test out my boxes, but that doesn't translate any "touch-sensitivity" aspects. Hoping to get one soon, but I am quite broke (school).
Much like scruffy, my room is becoming cluttered with electronics I have busted open, waiting for me to harvest. Just this second I am staring at 3x BA4560 chips I need to ever so carefully desolder and figure a use for.
I wish I had known about this website around when it first cropped up, which would have put me back in highschool so many years ago when I DID have a guitar and an amp of my own (using roommates currently), but had no inspiration due to it's weak sound. Also my last name is Peddle, so it was an atrocity to not own a pedal.
So far I have built Gus's NPN boost (beginner project, I made a thread), have a working Smash Drive on breadboard, and an untested Si Fuzz Face awaiting jacks & transistor auditioning. Before I even did those, I had modified a DS-1 which helped build confidence in what I was doing.
Anyways, see you on the board if I ever have something to say.
