What program did you use to get that drawing in the last picture? I've been looking for something to use. '




Adobe Illustrator. Not a CAD program but I can get 1/16th tolerance using the grid, rulers and guide lines.

Here's how I made it...

I draw onlookers' attention to the absence of surface-mount components anywhere.

Bwaaahahahaa!

That's truly absurd Dano. You managed to squeeze a battery in one, but that's probably because everything else is on the outside.  :icon_eek:

This thread has provided everything I hoped for; thanks guys. Tiny enclosures FTW  :icon_mrgreen:

A modified fat boostered.

I perf'd it. (The trim pot is for the low end roll off.)

I love the "off-axis" jacks too.

Man, you guys have really got me inspired. I'm going to have to give this a try. :icon_wink:

I've got more 1590A enclosures, but haven't put the time into building anything into them.  I love the crazy looks I get at gigs when cats see mine on my pedalboard. 

I've been trying to squeeze a TS-type (without the buffers) into one and haven't been able to do it yet.  Totally pissed me off when I saw Dano stuffed a 9V Battery AND the circuit into one... ugh.  Must try harder and be more creative with my layout(s).

Good work by all and some really neat builds.

The thing I just noticed, though, is that those 1590A's are expensive. Well, that is compared to a Taiwanese 1590B, 1590BB. or 125A clone. I guess it's been a while since I bought one, but Hammond enclosures have gotten ridiculously expensive- $18 for a 1590BB at Mouser (!). Huh?!? The 1590A's are $8 or so in qty of 1. Compare that to $5-$8 for the Taiwanese stuff.

So I guess my point is there is no economic reason to use a 1590A. It will save pedalboard space, is novel, and the challenge may be worth it. But I was surprised at Hammond prices... :icon_eek:

I buy the hammonds because they are manufactured in my area (southern ontario) and are plentiful everywhere.

I like the A's because they take up little real estate... especially for two stomper amp switches. I replaced the vox ac30 reverb/tremolo switch with a 1590A at the top of my pedalboard.

For pedals sitting side by side, there is a practical limitation in to how close one can pack these thing side by side.

The way I space them, they tend to take up around 2/3rds the space of a boss pedal, because my feet are big and I don't want to accidentally hit the wrong stomper.

But they do have that 'cool' factor when you see how small they are. That's primarily why I built a couple of them... to be different.

Nice Dano! What is that? Is it a smaller nano (Dano's Nano), or is it a boost or preamp or od? Whatever it is, I love it!

And so you should be proud! That's a heck of a lot of hardware to squeeze in there. How's it sound?

ayayay!

Hey any, what kind of perfboard is that in your headphone amp?  I'm looking for that kind of board.

Not 'any' but it looks like the stuff Small Bear sells.
