Congrats to all!

Now who's going to put the sound sample links next to the names so we don't have to search through 49 pages to find them? ;D

I just designed a new fuzz circuit! It almost sounds a little different than the last fifty fuzz circuits I designed! ;)

AWESOME WORK GUYS!   Thank you Greg, Jimi, and Dino for putting on an awesome contest. After seeing what I was up against, I'm surprised that I even made top 8 :icon_eek:


VIVA LA DIYSB!

Is there any way I could get the judges to pm me my score sheets?   I would like to know where I can make improvements for future contests.

Or if everyone is onboard with the idea, maybe post the score sheets in the thread.

We judges have discussed this already. We are going to keep the score sheets and scores under wraps.

The scoring was tight and we DO NOT want to create any drama with regards to the scores.  ;)

what greg says. the scoring sheets are not for public consumption. no offense intended, but you gotta understand how hard it is to objectively rate things from your friends and people you respect. as has been stated, the voting was excruciatingly close, in some cases decided by 1/10ths of a point. seriously.
i think we judges would gladly offer advice on people's builds now,  where plausible. but we won't revisit the scoring. all decisions are final, and tallied, and there's no recourse or recount.

congratulations to the winners...and by that i mean all of the guys who submitted stuff, cuz the numbers were all so close you wouldn't believe it.

you guys are

THE BEST

I stand with Greg and Jimi on this one.

One has to understand as well, that whether we like it or not, there will always be a certain degree of subjectiveness in the scores. It's for this reason that we have three judges. It provides certain checks and balances, and steers us away from any "One man's garbage, is another man's gold" syndromes.

It's fair that you would like to examine your particular strength or weakness, but in this context, you should be your own best critic. I learned long ago, that what was important for someone else, was not necessarily important for me, or vice versa.

Build it the way you like it, first, and foremost. I believe that is what everybody here did. The rest is in the eye, or ear, of the beholder.

Congrats winners!  Like others, I had a lot of fun being part of this, so thank-you judges for all your hard work and thanks to the sponsors for all the great prizes.  I can't wait for the next one (as long as it's not until spring because I can't paint enclosures on my balcony in Canadian winter :icon_biggrin:).

Part of the reason why I gave up painting them. I do the lion share of building during the winter, because that's when I have the most vacation time. So, bare aluminium it is. Nice and... Spartan. :icon_lol:

So... when/what's the next contest going to be?
Theme, etc., etc.?

Congrats to Jim and the other top seven. :)

I'm shocked and honored to find myself anywhere in the top eight.  The only thing I thought I could have predicted was that I wouldn't be in the top eight.  I just went back and reviewed the videos of the folks who didn't win and am still amazed at how great their entries were.

Thanks again to Dino, Jimi, and Greg for your time, efforts, and prize donations. Thanks also for doing everything you could to establish an objective scoring system. I'm sure that the organizers of the next contest would like your input on their scoring sheets.

Thanks also to the other folks who donated prizes and to Aron who sponsored this event on his site.  Finally thanks to all of the contestants who entered such awesome builds and supported each other throughout the process.

@Dava W. - I'll be glad to volunteer as a judge and help organize the next one. We might need a few days for the adrenalin of the last few days to wear off before we start planning. ;)

WOW!

I'm shocked! I can't believe I won anything! This is crazy!

I'm gonna chalk it up to luck. This must have been a really hard contest to judge, looking back at all the entry's I cant say any one pedal was better then the next. Everyone made some awesome pedals!

I wasn't expecting to win anything I just wanted to join the contest to help get the contest started and hoped my 10 bucks would go toward the forum in some way.

Ronan helped me tons with understanding my circuit a bit better and getting it running! I gotta give him lots of thanks, very grateful to him!

As for choosing a prize I'm torn between the XP All and the colorsound vocalizer .

Any one have any honest opinions for me ?

You don't want the XP
No-one wants the XP
The mere thought of the XP makes you sick
You will listen to Mike and chose the vocalizer.

You're screwed buddy. You sound just too damn good clean. You're up sh*t's creek, in a barbed wire canoe.

And you thought winning this thing was tough.... :icon_lol:

BTW, Mike... knock it off. You're making me dizzy.

Well thinking about it a bit more. I don't have the money or equipment to make an XP all but I think I have all the parts on hand to build a vocalizer. Which I will have to have a vocalizer at some point, cause that pedal sounds amazing! I love the vowel sounds. Its on my list to make something like that or the ludwig.

So I think I will choose the XP All!

Thanks for the compliment digi! I can't lie Ive watched nearly all of yours and jimi's videos on youtube and I've learned a few really cool licks from you guys. I'd hear something you guys played and had to rewind a few times, pick up a guitar and learn it! you guys really smoke on the frets! Just the type of music I love!

Sorry Mike :D gonna have to take the XP off the table.

I was really not sure what to pick after watching videos of digi and jimi demo the xp all and the vocalizer. They both have merit to something I'd enjoy using often.

Well thanks again for everything guys this was tons of fun and still shocking I won! I still can't believe it!
