Those are some awesome decorations Keto. Do you buy letters at art stores or make them yourself?

On every one of those pedals, the letters are laid down letter by letter....mostly stickers, but some are beads (fuzzrite/phaser) strung on wire then superglued down, some (the big multi coloured 'alphabet' on the other fuzzrite) are also sort of hanging beads, with the bead holes up top trimmed off.  I spend lots of time trolling dollar stores & craft shops looking for ideas....have a couple shopping bags full of different stuff, again mostly stickers but also beads, temp tattoos, and other stuff I think I might use some day.  I really like the bubble letters (bottom bosstone, overdriver) but can't seem to get them locally now.

Thank you!
Enclosure is a Teko BC2 (available at banzaimusic.com among others). I might have to put some "metal pins" on the inside between the front and rear panel to get more stabilization :) The panels are pretty floppy when you insert the guitar cables etc...

Hello together,
my internet was unavailable over a week or so and now there are so many new and great looking pedals - WOW!

Here's the next one from me, not a "real pedal" but a nice little helper,
an IC-Buffer which I call "Popeye-Buffer" - I think you understand why  ;)





@ericohman:

I am building a "Mojo-Rangemaster" in a Teko-Enclosure too
and I do it with a little pcb like you cause I don't like the "original style-wiring"  ;)

Very great clone by the way!


Greetings
Magnus

Fuzzrite, with bigger output caps - .0068 makes it a much fuller woolier usable fuzz.

Thanks guys, always a trip through egoville receiving compliments from you crazy pedal dudes.  :icon_mrgreen:

gut shot? i went for the 'shortest amount of cable = less treble lost in capacitance route''........ok, i lie, i went for the 'this part connects to this part, so lets DO IT!!!!!!!' route.

My mods were to replace the two components that differ between the ts9 and ts808 with a 4pdt switch meaning i can do it in one flick. I also added an extra diode for asymmetrical clipping and two differing values of caps for varying bass response.
Mod info can be found at beavis audio and tone pad in their screamer lab and build notes respectively.

Looks good, I'd only suggest that you use PCB stand offs, that little things would make a big difference ;)

Ok, I miss posting something, here are the guts of the last Big Box I posted some pages back:

@keto - Love the mousetrap styled box.

I'd just like to lower the bar a little! :P At least for the duration of this post!  :D

My first "lets see what this is all about" attempt at etching this weekend.
A Distortus Maximus I've had lying around in an undecorated box for ages. Doesn't get used much, so I thought I'd have a little experiment. Left the pots, footswitch and everything in place. Asked the wife for an old bottle of nail varnish I could use (got a funny look), drew a few labels and scribbles and just dripped etchant on with a cotton bud.
Etch isn't quite deep enough, but I quite like the rough looking result after a mist of red paint and a coat of lacquer.
