Just got back home from working away, and here is the long promised gut shot for my Fuzz. Sorry for the delay, I work away for a couple of weeks at a time.

I love that chunder carpet. I'll be around to cut some up, cover a box with it.

as for pettol, well, it's getting a bit ridiculous. even hex-head grubs in the knobs? really?
the circuit output is not the input. the reverse holds true for the circuit input.

Here's a reverse etched enclosure for my Small Clone chorus. Somehow I achieved the complete opposite to Pettol's miracle: a shabby, 30+-years-on-stage-and-drinking-look. Dirty appearance for a clean sound.

But it has a rate LED, a guitar/bass selector and an adjustable MN3007 clock speed.

That's allright and much better than my allergy to the SOUND of choruses I developed in the beginning of the 90s that I'm just ridding myself of.

Anyway I really like the looks – it's something that won't be easy to do again. Similar to the first take of a recording where everything's perfect - EXCEPT for the band popping beer bottles in the background and chattering away. I never manage to re-capture that first take quality and I guess it will be the same with this etch/paint job if I'd try to copy it.

yeah i had that chorus allergy too for a while , always reminded me of whitesnake ;D...its a love or hate thing i think...

It's the bottom etch, but it looks amazing to me!



etching pictures isn't that difficult!
And made some leaves too, with a nice green color


not as clean as Pettol's, that was really impressive, how do you do that?

Pettol

Beautiful!

I etched mine with NaOH (PnP blue as mask), machine sanded it a bit with 2000 grit, and machine polished it with chrome polish.
