Taking shape :)



Looks like Ian is hard at work!  ;D

Careful.... it looks like that 68K resistor needs a home  :icon_eek:

that's probably the just antenna.

hard to imagine Ian making something that can fit on one of those little breadboards. :D

Some progress on the pcb:



Are you all scared yet?  :D

Somehow, I don't think so.

Soldered mine up last night ... and discovered that a transistor I used when designing the effect on the breadboard was WILDLY out of spec for its number. Sockets to the rescue!

Starting on the case tonight. I just hope there's going to be a contest (hint hint, folks) :)

Nah, too many holes for a fuzz, I'm getting the pcb ready for the dalo pen (etch resistant pen).

I have often wondered if, in this type of competition (where commercial builders cannot enter), it would be good to post up progress, so that the people new to building can see the various stages/approaches/methods/pitfalls to building a stompbox. It could be quite interesting?

But then maybe this isn't the place to do it? Wouldn't worry me to post progress pics, not worried about giving secrets away, more worried about boring everyone to tears...

Just a thought. Any opinions on this?

Knowledge is power. Great idea Ian. Competition aside, I believe it`s one of the raison d`etre`s of the forum, to share the most knowledge possible, and advance the DIY art.

It would be interesting, although it will be painfully obvious that mine won't be professional.   :icon_confused:
