Are you sure the P90 isn't a mock-up in a shoe-box?  ;)  That looks fantastic!   ;D

Nice presentation pakrat  :icon_cool:
Super job of taking an established design and taking it to the "next level".
One Q: I don't see a power input jack in the pix. Was that installed after you took the pix?
BTW; that enclosure is really beautiful. But then again, ALL of the enclosures I have seen you finish are works of art!  ;D
Great stuff. Can't wait to see what else you have in store for this...

Thanks guys  ;D  The DC jack is on the back, and nothing, I repeat, nothing could be added to this thing "after" lol!

Doink! Stupid human moment on my part  :icon_redface:
I see it now. The inner nut gives the appearance an empty hole to my blind a$$.
Sorry 'bout that.

You aren't blind. Even if I look at the actual pedal it's hard to make out anything it's so packed  :icon_wink:

....it is competing against it's creator, slacker  :icon_twisted:.

If you don't win anything else you have the dubious honour of creating my new favourite Echo Base build. Great work packing all that in a 1590B, you've got more stuff in there than mine in a BB.

Thanks slacker, that really means a lot. Also thank you for this awesome effect, I really love it and can't put it down! I wouldn't worry too much about me squeezing another entry out in time, I haven't even drilled the enclosure yet and the clock is ticking! I was hoping not to waste 2 extra entry fees but it's not so bad since it helps the forum.

@ pakrat

I need your first name please. It's for my score sheet, just to make sure that there isn't any confusion. Unless you want me to give your points away to someone else.  ;D

This must be the most beautiful enclosure so far in this contest. And i dont have a clue how u can manage to make it two colored like that when u etch. Nice!

Great sounding unit as well!

Cheers

I would LOVE to etch my enclosure for my Ludwig build but sadly.... I SUCK AT ETCHING!  :icon_evil:  :'(  :icon_redface:

@Vallhagen Thank you very much! The paint is clear blue, so it is transparent. That's why you can still see the black under it.

@Gov I think the trick is really in the prep and making sure the image is 100% transferred. I hope someday I can get my etches to look as good as some of the others I've seen.... slade, deadastronaut to name a few.

Official Entry, by Travis Pike aka Beo, in Seattle

Well, the holidays are a great time to veg out on movies, especially the classics. My pedal integrates three well-known and well-acclaimed circuits, and I have tried to pay homage to them (without being too obvious) with some abstractly related movie themed graphics, which I have adapted for etching. I also used this build to work on my Eagle layout skills, trying to get all three circuits laid out cleanly on a single board, with on board pots and well isolated ground paths.

My submission is a triple combo pedal, with three overdrive circuits in one. These are three circuits I always wanted to build and play. Also, I'm a big Trey Anastasio fan, he uses dual Tube Screamers for his dirt tones. While this pedal doesn't have any tube screamers (I've already built a few of those), I was curious how these three different overdrive circuits would interact with each other when stacked.

For my video demo, I have all three ODs set up with the similar level and gain, for comparison purposes (ignore the knob positions in the pics). I have a lot of fine tuning to do, but I'll likely set up my two favorite as low-medium gain, or med-high gains, and have the third OD set to boost when stacked. At bedroom levels, it's hard to tell how well these pedals would differentiate from each other when amp is cranked up. However, even at these lower levels each circuit does seem to have it's own tone and characteristics, with all three giving nice and very usable dirt. Stacking gets to high gain craziness with ease.

Right now, I'd say my favorite is The Enchanter, with the Psycho Drive a close second. So far I'm not nearly as taken with Top Secret, but I need to play with it some more. I notice the original designers have a MKII out and I suspect I might like the changes they have implemented.

Anyways, enough rambling. Here are the pics:













Here's the component layout. I haven't provided the full schematic and layout with components identified. The schematics are out there for anyone wanting to build any of these.



And of course, here's the demo. I'm mostly a rhythm player.. after twenty years, I still can't play lead to save my life. Hopefully I don't get docked points for my crappy playing!
