Another mojo-machine. A little booster to put in front of my Super Lead. Got sick of always stepping on knobs, so for this build i glued a trimpot to the side of the pedal, and drilled a hole, so I can adjust it with a screw driver without having to open it. Will post more pics later.



It sounds awesome. I wanted it to be somewhat middy and screamy. And it sure is. Here's a sound clip with my SG and 18W, first without boost, then with boost:

Somewhat messy etch, but it's gonna get stepped on any way. "Mer s" is swedish for "More throttle" or "More go".

It's too bad you have such big feet  :D because it looks too empty. If you weren't going to put a knob on it, at least you could have decorated it a bit more, look at all that empty space.

Don't think the people in the audience will hear any difference though. ;)

Anyhow, it's pretty straight forward, and that was what i was going for.

Hey, I think it's awesome, Beros!

If it does what it's supposed to do, and level control is set the way you need it, then Bam! It's a hit!

I finally found the courage to post my newest creation  ;)





It's a Guitar Fetish MOD board delay...   I designed it to become a belt clip device, so I can twist the knobs while playing. I converted one trim pot (mix) to an external pot and modified the feedback control so I could drive it "gently" into self-oscillation. There was some trial and error involved with the resistor value 'til the oscillation was "controllable".

Enclosure and knobs are salvaged parts. If I remember correctly, the knobs were from a rather old Tektronix oscilloscope and used as thumb screws for the modules.

Just wanted to share my first successful graphic label on a stomp:




Ok, the box has supplementar holes due to errors... next times i know it could get better.

Home made enclosures, now on my board after several circuit changes..
This one is now Big Muff, first was Torchy layout, then changed to my own layout.

This one is now DOD250, own layout.

Still a Fuzz Face, but from silicon to Ge.. Salvaged Transistors..

This one is now Dynacomp, own layout.

Temporarily decorated with sharpy and paint pen.

*WHEW*  Finally got around to rewiring my dr boogie. I've only built 2 pedals now (this and a muff), but after seeing the muff turn out ridiculously cleaner than the boog I had to go back and fix it. So after staring at its guts every time I walk by my work table for a solid month I grabbed my iron and beat it into submission. Tore all the wires out, and did it properly. I cut about 1.5ft of wire out of it. No, I am not kidding. Just sad.. anyways now there are no frayed wires, I replaced the 2 oversized caps with 2 that actually fit in the box, flipped the board over the right way so I can adjust the trimmers without yanking it all to pieces, and fired it up and it made a significant difference to the tone. Looking forward to rocking the crap out of this thing for years to come!

Hello together,
just finished my Dallas Rangemaster-Prototype a few minutes ago,
now I can not just measure my transistors - I can test them very quickly with this one:



And its a good choice to show it if someony asks about my hobbies  8)

I will show it finished later, I have to add an on/off-switch...


Greetings
Magnus

Not nearly as good as most here but I'm proud of it and i wanted to do my part in getting this thread bump up to page 666 ;D The guts are ugly so you don't get to see those yet :icon_redface: My second go at the 2part epoxy finish. The LED is a multi color that flashes at two different paces. No its not a DOD phasor (how dod spells phasor) its a Phase 90. I just liked phasor better than phaser  ;D

Thats a nice Phasor.
I have a feeling the pics dont do the finish justice,in the bottom pic the finish looks rather deep and lustrious.

I like the little GFMOD box a couple posts up too.
Nice clean looking effect.
Those MOD PCBs are pretty neat,I wonder how many people make good use of them in their guitars.
IIRC they recomend only two different circuits per ax.
I'm no EE or even a tech,just a monkey with a soldering iron that can read,and follow instructions. ;D
