man, haven't been on to check out peoples builds, let alone build something never for myself to make a new enclosure. there's some amazing work guys. now i've got to get my ass in gear and do something new for me and get to designing. seriously can't say enough about how good all the work above is.

My first complete pcb design. A green ringer. Note, the pcb has one broken trace and and error that I had to fix manually... But once I got those jumpers in, it worked great! Laid it out to fit the box, still ended up pretty tight because I forgot to take into account the lid.

And yes, this is etched. I primered in white, painted green, then sanded it down to give it a worn look. I really enjoy the way it turned out.

Nice build, DK1. I am not to the point where I can do my own PCB yet.
I am urious: What are you using to hold the enclosure up while spraying it ?

Those are painter's pyramids. Very handy. You can get a pack of 10 of them off Amazon for under $10. A better investment may be getting the Versaspin turntable with 4 pyramids included for under $20. I wish I'd done that. The turntable would be really handy, and I've never needed more than 4 pyramids at a time.

Madbean Kraken - Super fun pedal to play around with.

Had probably my best toner transfer ever. Didn't get the mix right, so the etch wasn't deep enough. Bummer.

Hey Andrew! Very good building. Have you any video about this? I would like a lot to see it.
That's all, Folks!

That king of tone looks amazing! Are you using toner transfer to get that kind of result?

I loved that ornament pattern!

Thanks. Yes, that's toner transfer. I came to believe that the quality of the enclosure makes all the difference. I got rotten results with cheapo Eddy Stone enclosures and the King of Tone kind with Hammonds. No different treatment.

What sort of enchant are you using? I'm having trouble getting mine deep enough before the transfer starts to erode. I've been working on some different mixes to try to balance speed and detail without much luck lately.

You can be proud! It is gorgeous!
How did you make that color gradient? Looks really nice

Thanks, Benoit!

I just used two spray paints successively for the colour gradient. I think both were some acrylic car colours.

By the way: I adore your blog and the pedals you create. And of course that you freely share your findigs! Keep it up!
