And now, the moment you've all been waiting for! I am proud to present, as inspired by this thread .... THE DANCING BANANA TREMOLO!!!!!! ;D



A very fitting 500th post I must say 8)

That looks totally dangerous.  Somebody could easily slip on the banana peel while stepping on the pedal and fall down.   :icon_mrgreen:

Great looking build, Nathan.  Those knobs are difficult to make look good, but they work very well there.

I don't care who you are, that's funny right there.

I liked the knobs too; kind of tied the whole thing together. I think I would have used a black switch and jack though. I use "gun blue" to make metal parts (especially screws) black when I can't find them readily available; doesn't work on all metals though. http://www.amazon.com/dp/B0025VWAS2

I'd like to get into silkscreening, but alas I have no money :P

You could try Kickstarter :)

This is a waterslide decal, which is one of the easiest and cheapest ways to get a really good-looking finished pedal ;D

Well, it looks great.

Incidently, we're into easy and cheap ways to get a really good artwork, too. In fact, since our Banana Jack Amps didn't get funded, we've decided to give the art business a shot:

Unfortunately, it's not an entirely safe enterprise either -- no high voltage, but we've still got hot irons to worry about!


That one didn't get funded either   ???

It's fairly straight forward, if you want to start it , press start. You can work out the rest of the controls for yourself !
