You guys have been challenged!

BTW, Greg recently whipped a 3 year old in an arm wrestling match. ;)

Please don't misinterpret my message...

I want to see OTHER entries and I was "throwing down the gauntlet" to inspire. Not to ridicule.

Bring on the competition  ;D

We're just having fun with you (at least I am), and I'm sure we'll have a lot of entries near the deadline. I was in the 11th hour myself on the last one.

Here is the cheesiest pedal ever posted in the 10 years of this forum :D :D :D

Named the fromage percolé... Which is French for percolated cheese.

It is a harmonic percolator in a SLANT cut 1590A enclosure. It is loaded with a red dot OC75 germanium tranny. It has laser etched controls and some 3D printed knobs made to look like lil cheese wedges. I also had to fabricate a stomp switch that would fit in such a small place.

This project has taken forever. I hit several snags, and it got put on the back burner for a while. I figured this contest is a good reason to finish it.

A Peavey 6505+ into a 2 12 cab. And some PRS that was a gift from the guitarist from Chimera.

Your XL mini switch is off the chain.  Not to mention the complete project, which is not of this realm whatsoever. <thumbs up>

@Mike...

Very TIGHT build! Love the 3D knobs  ;D

You need to upload another pic of the pedal carefully placed inside of a nice steamy bowl of homemade mac-n-cheese!  :icon_twisted:

Very sweet Mike.  Love the knobs and the cheese wedge enclosure.  How did you do the dents in the top of the enclosure (they look awesome)?

Bravo Mike, way to print in three dimensions!

Now once I get this 4-D printer up and running...

Excellent job Mike. Everything from cutting down an already tiny 1590A, improvising that switch, and the overall finish is very impressive.... and it sounds great too! You gotta love the cheese knobs!

Thanks guys. :)    It was a real challenge for me. Sadly that is as neat as I could get the guts. Such little space to work with.

Very sweet Mike.  Love the knobs and the cheese wedge enclosure.  How did you do the dents in the top of the enclosure (they look awesome)?

I etched the enclosure before painting.

Did you etch twice to get the letter details deeper inside the circle indentations?

That's a great build, Mike.  I dig how you used different finishing approaches together to get the overall theme of the pedal.
