    100uf Tantalum 35V

    Every tant cap I have used for pedal building has had a +/- indicated by a nearly invisible (+) mark on the cap itself but also with the longer anode leg.

    best method for noob to put graphics on pedal

    I've not actually experimented with this, yet. My results were so good without one that I didn't really see the need. I have some of that triple thick clear glaze from Krylon that I have had good results with in the past (It really seems to add some depth to whatever it's covering) and I just...

    Bellum fuzz mkII germanium diodes

    I do something similar to the needle nose pliers method, but I use round nose jewelers' pliers instead because they give a nice, rounded bend.

    I was going to vote for myself, but then I realized that my idea is terrible.

    best method for noob to put graphics on pedal

    I'm a fan of no-film waterslide. It is pretty simple, looks good, and is near indestructible without a clear coat. You can do color with a color laser jet printer. I've not experimented with color yet, but now that I am back in the office and have access to a decent quality color laser printer...

    Should have just sold it as a John Cage 4'33'' inspired solo.

    Share your gig disasters :-)

    Nothing crazy for me, really. I guess the worst thing was that we had gotten to a point where we were gigging pretty regularly and getting better places to play (tough to find places that want originals) when our lead singer quit. She was a great singer and thought we were too small time so she...

    A fail safe way to deal with LEDs

    I've started moving them all next to the footswitch. Most builds have a ton of room there. I solder wire to the LED legs and then put some heat shrink over the legs to keep them from shorting on anything. Then I use a drop of super glue to keep it in the bezel.

    I'll go with 88 hFE and .108mA. I'm thinking that eight is my lucky number, apparently. Thanks @fig for always bringing the fun.

    'Best' Source for Pre-Cut Hook-Up Wire?

    I've never used it but I've seen it at Stomp Box Parts, so you may want to check them out as well.

    Hookup Wire #22 or #24. What is the right size for PedalPCB products.

    I used solid core when I very first started and it broke on me all the time. I switched to stranded and my finger tips hated me and I hated having to tin the ends and the curve never really seemed to come out of the wire. I feel like pre-bonded splits the difference pretty well. I've never had...
