>You also get points for the absolute freaking best teaser. Hiding it in the painting! Genius!
Great eye! Didn't notice that. Thanx for pointing it out.

Thanx alot for all the comments...ironically, when I showed it to people around here I got the same responses (sick, insane)....it was a labor of love.

@midwayfair - congrats...first one to find the hidden stompbox!



==========================
Btw, here's a few reference & sale links I bookmarked during the last couple months..funny looking back...I would've been broke if I actually bought some of those parts instead of salvaging.

Power Transistor Sockets

Power Transistor Mounting (of course, I didn't need the heatsink)

Alan Bradley 500K Pot (no switch)

Blue Molded caps

Glass Jewel

Glass resistors

Kemet Caps

IN55A Diode

@LucifersTrip: You know jimi is going to need a healthy dose of "wood be gone" after seeing/hearing your entry.

@lucy  that's SOOO sick.   Although I'll have to dock points for not collecting and using 'vintage solder' from that keyboard.  ;D

thanx again...

you won't believe this, but I forgot to mention that I actually did use vintage solder:



I believe it's from the 60's or 70's. It's my favorite, Ersin Multicore, SN60, 18SWG, .048

Great build LT!  I love the vintage parts and the sound!  Who'd have thought all those years ago that those parts would end up in a guitar pedal many years in the future.  BTW, it's probably the only pedal in the competition that most if not all of its parts were made in the USA (or at least not in China ;) ).

If you are entered in the contest and your forum name is NOT on the following list, I need you to PM me with your forum name AND your given name.

PM sent, did send PM to Aron after paying the entry fee, guess it got lost.

Thanx....It is funny. When I was building it, I realized that I was using parts that were created before any fuzz actually existed. Can't imagine that the pre-"Leave it to Beaver" era manufacturers would ever believe where their product would wind up...

Regarding being made in the USA, I had to take a hit on the 3PDT. I needed that 6 volt bulb !

Sorry - PM sent.

Wow - some more amazing builds. If Jr behaves himself tonight, it's possible I will get my build finished - only need to populate the board and do all the wiring.

of course....I knew they'd be underrepresented in today's modern age!  actually, anything with transistors in general are underrepresented.

that eliminated the possibility of batteries....

...and that eliminated the possibility of germs. can you imagine what would've happened if you just touched em.

but the cool thing is that I can check collector voltages without opening the box !   for any of you not familiar with power transistors, the metal casing IS the collector...

thanx alot

I like how you promise to mutilate yourself to reduce the likelihood of further entries, but you also have me fearing I'll win :icon_eek:
