"ground effects" on pedals
« on: October 24, 2009, 06:49:21 PM »

I've seen a few pedals that have some sort of LED border or base that lights up when the pedal is turned on - it looks sort of like that douche-y ground effects thing people put on their cars. While it looks stupid on an automobile, I can certainly see the advantage - both pragmatically and aesthetically - to doing that to a pedal. Problem is, I can't find out how to do it. I've searched the archives, but my search terms are either too wide or too narrow - 400 hits or 4. Can anyone direct me to a fairly noob-friendly tutorial on how to do this.

If you search for your own words - LED border - you'll find this on the first page: http://www.diystompboxes.com/smfforum/index.php?topic=66840.0

- Guitar built from parts
- Random strings to make a full set
- Any pick that I can find on the floor
- Some pedals that I built
- My all-tube amp head that I built out of parts in my spares box
- Cheap Marshall 4x12 with better speakers fitted
