    Accurate pedalboard

    hey @PedalPCB , please add "Danny Devi-Tone" to the wishlist. Just spitballing here, but MKII could simply be "Danni Devo-Tone"...

    Pythagoras L78L33 Temperature

    Did you end up cooking the L78L33? Turns out I just did the same thing with my Leprechaun / Rainbow Machine. Thought I'd poke around the forum before I start poking around on my build. Thanks!

    It's Friday, you can thank me later!

    A timely ZZ Top tribute, on the same theme of @droneshotfpv 's vid. Both are top contenders for this category, as far as I'm concerned. Always take your passion to the stage!

    When your hobbie is to assemble pedals but you live in europe

    My stucked stories have been self-afflicted. I recently ordered CD4024s, instead of CD4049s. Double check your lists, and buying in bulk has been the biggest helper for me. Hang in there on waiting, comrade!

    Partscaster build

    Awesome! Looking forward to this, I've been on the fence of this type of project for a while... and then just bought a tele. ;) Topics that come to mind: - sources for diff parts, and your preferences - what did you DIY/fabricate, what did you source out (ex, built the body? bought the neck...

    CDXL Classic?

    For what it's worth, I built the reissue - it's great! The up/down switch is fun, and the parts were way easier to source. That VTL5C4 is a stinker to find in the classic edition. ;)

    mind = blown. thanks @Stickman393 ! just went down a merry faraday cage rabbit hole. what kind of cable do you use for this, just plain 'ol instrument cable with the outer vinyl removed?

    BEHOLD! My Cepheid Build, made with science

    Can you go into some further detail on that? I got two fun yet ticky pedals (Sea Horse and Chaos Machine), this seems like a nice fix. A - what's going on here? how to you split the tip/sleeve signals and send that to the board? B - where is the sleeve signal going, if not in these spots? C...

    Stepped Bit / Progressive Bit

    @Paradox916 - bingo! I got the DeWalt 1/2" step bit - fits everything I need.

    What plectrum does everyone use?

    I've been a historic picker (dunlop greens .88mm)... and a nail-biter. I've dabbled with a bit of finger picking, but it never sounded good because of the stumpy nubs. Upsides to the pandemic: I thought it was a good time to stop putting my fingers in my mouth. Finder picking with nails is so...

    @almondcity is on it. Sometimes, if you can't find the exact right size, you can just lay things on their sides. I get creative when I have the right valued parts, but they are a funky size. If you scroll through enough build reports, you'll find some sideways parts, for sure!

    shopping list - efficient buying - easy system to pick and add components

    Check out this post I made a while back - I stumbled on a blog post explaining the weird patterns to all the values of the common parts. There's a reason for those oddball values, turns out! I got curious again, because the E3, E6, E12 thing didn't stick the first time I found this out, this...

    Anyone here had shoulder surgery? A long and winding lamentation.

    I've had two knee surgeries, and have dealt with some chronic backpain. I was about to write this, but @Dan M has us covered. PT diligence pays off, even though in the moment it can feel futile. Doesn't hurt to work out both sides, too. After I rebuilt all the the muscles in my surgery leg, the...
