you're all right guys. Doble dragón is spanish for double dragon. Smiley

Interesting that none of the other markings are in Espanol. i.e. Kick, Punch, Life.....  Roll Eyes

Here's my latest - TS808 with a few mods (mainly of the Keely variety).  

WARNING: PICS BELOW NOT (OVERLY) SAFE FOR WORK

Most important mod though (IMO) is the addition of a 6-way rotary switch (labeled "NASTY") for clipping diodes - just gives you so many tonal possibilities.  I went for Ge (sym), Ge (asym), Si (sym, stock), Si (Asym), LED and fully lifted.  

 - LED is probably my favourite - nice n' gritty, although the lifted setting gives a massive amount of boost if that's your thing.  
 - Ge is much quieter (as you'd expect) and you need to push the Level ("BUMP") all the way up, but both settings give a lovely rounded OD.  

Quite usable tonally, def. moreso than my standard TS808...  Perspex LED glowing border in lieu of a normal LED on top, just cos  :biggrin:  Wish I was keeping this one, but it's an Xmas gift for the guitarist in our band...

My first crack at etching an enclosure - some bits worked really well, others not so. Next time, I need to sand the enclosure more to remove the blemishes from the enclosure casting, and also mask the big flat areas with lacquer as there were a few spots where the FeCl was just starting to go through the mask...  But overall, very pleased for my first effort.

Sorry... didn't mean to offend. No need to get upset. Just thought it was a shame that you went through all of the trouble and POSSIBLY mis-spelled a word. I know I would be  Shocked icon_mad icon_evil if that happened to me.

I seriously doubt that Slade is serious about being offended or anything. We all know his spelling isn't always that good either  icon_lol
As this is a forum, don't take things too serious, it's very difficult to show your emotions in writing.

Hahaha, easy, Govmnt_Lacky...Of course I'm just kidding, I would never write like that seriously, and would never point and laugh to you because you only know one language... Maybe I'm still using too few smileys... Now seriously... One language??!?!!?! Cheesy Grin icon_mrgreen icon_lol

Okay!!! Let's stop this OT. Here's my latest, the Neverdrive (an overdrive made to get a tone close to the song Neverland from Maryllion):
