One step closer to something to present. I've got my entry sounding pretty close to how I want it. I think I've spent more time on this one effect than I did on all five circuits that went into my entry for the last competition. Now to get the enclosure looking good.

I know that I'll be thankful when I present my turkey and this contest is over. ;)

Finally got my board etched today.  Tomorrow I start drilling and populating.  This is going to be cutting it super close :icon_twisted:

Seems like everyone had to cut it close this comp.  Lucky for me I don't have too many things that keep me from building. I started as soon as the comp was announced. ;D

I'm cuttin' it pretty close, too...came up with the concept and planned it out in my head the first week and have been tracking down parts & building since then...The only thing that killed a week or more (and some trees) was Sandy.
always think outside the box

That's the thing, so did I.  This build has required two prototypes (complete etched and drilled boards) and a complete re-vamp of how I make boards in order to make the board.

Ok, I'm breaking the trend here because this is not my original circuit, but it is ironic that it is competing against it's creator, slacker  :icon_twisted:. My first entry..... the Echo Base Mini. I called it a mini because I've never seen one in a 1590b enclosure before. I cheated on this one by milling the insides of the box to make the board fit. I included all of the mods I thought would be useful for me. I have to say, this delay sounds really great, and the various mods really make it super versatile. The modulation is weird and awesome especially with the clean kill. This has become my favorite out of the pedals I've built so far.... Thanks so much for this one slacker!
I used anonymousfacelesscoward's layout because it's the smallest one I could find. Some component value changes include swapping the 20k feedback limiting resistor to 100k, and the humbucker friendly mod. I had a lot of trouble etching this one because for some reason PNP blue doesn't stick to the tayda enclosures I have, but finally glossy photo paper worked. The paint is Tamiya clear blue and I'm really happy with the results. Major props to you guys who do 1590A builds, this was a tight squeeze and I can't imagine working inside those tiny things!
