Pelle...

Is that IC giving the competition the finger? If so, nice touch. :icon_mrgreen:

So far, judging this competition has been absolutely brutal, in a great way. Just fantastic work.

OK... back to my score sheets.....

Here's a little update on mine.  Got the board working. There were two traces connected that shouldn't have been. Unfortunately, one needed to be connected on the opposite side of the other, so I had to install a nasty jumper wire.  I don't have time to do another etch. It works now, except for a "sound quality" issue that I think I can fix. I'll probably have to post mine very close to the deadline.

Don't say that in front of the vero/perf folks!  ;D

I'll post graphics and drilling template to my wiki in a day or two.

Decided that the thread I started for graphics would be a better place.

Jumpers have their place and it's not on the copper side of my pretty PCB. ;)

You aren't alone John. I just populated my board last night and I needed a rotary for "something" but I got the wrong one (DP rotaries confused me when I ordered). I'll be lucky to finish in time and with 3 entry fees, that would be a shame! Time to switch gears.....

@ Packrat-yeah, my first PCB design and I learned a few things. Good luck on your project. I'm sure it'll be first rate like the rest of your builds.

@askwho69- hope to see you in the next competition!  (I heard that Greg, Jimi, and Digi want to judge a Christmas competition  :icon_eek: ;) ).

Don't sweat it John, nothing wrong with the odd bodge wire on a prototype layout. Mine has two such nasties, one because I put the IC one space further to the left than it should have been and so ran out of room on that side of the board, didn't notice until I was about half way through the build, the other because I couldn't interpret my own schematic correctly :icon_redface:

Good to know that I'm in good company!  My mistake was also not interpreting my scheme correctly  :icon_redface:. I'll probably have to make at least one more cut and insert some power filtering components as well. If I have to choose between proper sound and aesthetics, I'll go for the sound. ;)

Nice job to everybody that has already submitted - those are some very cool designs/pedals and this is certainly going to be a bit of a baptism of fire for me.

For some reason, I thought I would have plenty of time to get a new build done during paternity leave. Funnily enough, that didn't work out, so now I have a simulation that almost works and a half-done layout that is starting to look like it is going to be much bigger than the enclosures I have at hand. Nothing like a deadline to get me to pull my finger out though.

Congrats on the new addition to your family! :D  I imagine that the new little one requires (and demands) a lot of attention.  At least you have your priorities straight. Hopefully your  build will be done in time, but in the grand scheme of things, your child will only be a baby once, but there'll always be stompboxes to build.
