    JHS Colour Box

    I posted this one up in the previous iteration of the Wish List and it got a big response, so I wanted to post it again. Here's a 19 minute long video on it from JHS with some good A/B demos and you can hear them use the pedal to record a song: And here's a pretty good Reverb review of the...

    Pot Mounted Clean Blend Daughterboard

    I feel like this was something that was mentioned pretty often by quite a few people, and would likely be of particular interest to bass players. Not sure if a second board would be needed for inverted polarity or if they could work on the same architecture with a different BOM/jumpers/etc.

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

    At the end of April my MIL was watching my daughter in the front yard while my wife and I worked. As I am walking out the front door to bring out some lunch for the kiddo, I watch my daughter open the gate that was apparently left un-latched by my MIL's friend who stopped by. My MIL is sitting...

    My Little Pink Fuzz

    Today I was able to put the finishing touches on my first germanium fuzz pedal. This is a PedalPCB Gnat board that was modified to clone an Elka Dizzy Tone (dubbed The Dizzy Elk by @music6000 who actually figured the mod out, all I did was build it!). You can see the mod thread here...

    PedalPCB Gnat mod - "The Dizzy Elk"

    First off: all credit for this goes to @music6000 , @thewintersoldier and everyone else who contributed to this build. You can see the original discussion here. All I did was follow their advice. This mod allows you to use the Gnat Fuzz PCB to create an NPN Elka Dizzy Tone. I wanted to share...

    Looking for some advice on buying an electric guitar.

    Hey folks, While I have played and purchased a pretty good number of basses over the years, I have never bought an electric guitar. I don't really know much of anything about guitars, honestly, other than what can be inferred from experience with electric bass. I am looking to spend about $500...

    Dark Theme?

    I was checking the settings and didn't see an option for a dark theme. Is that something that can be added? I use them on most sites and coming back to this tab is like catching a glimpse of the sun for a second.

    Now Playing... What are you Listening to Right Now?

    After seeing @fig post his "Now Playing" list I got totally jealous and decided to start this thread where we could all share what we're currently listening to when we want. It'll be nice to get a feel for other people's tastes as well as maybe help some of us discover new bands or albums. So...

    It's Boosterday!?!? Triangulum Boost and another Mercurial Boost

    A few weeks ago my cousin asked me if I could make a pedal for him (bass) and one of his bandmates (guitar). I made him a Mercurial Boost and his friend a Triangulum Boost. The logo is their band logo and one of the people in the band made it. I feel pretty stoked for how the decals came out on...

    I have a serious problem...

    I have way too many PCBs.... And not nearly enough enclosures! I counted 25 PCBs and I have 6 that are somewhere between fully built and needing a hand full of components. What's your PCB stock look like? I'm sure that there are many of you out there with a lot more than this!

    Got some "old TV parts" from Russia, looking for suggestions.

    I bought 20 of these MP38A transistors from a seller on eBay in late February and just received them today. I originally got them for an Aft PCB I've had assembled since about that time. I plan on plugging one in there and getting that built up, but I was looking for other suggestions for some...

    Ca-ca-ca-catch the wave! Max Headroom Meridian (Aion FX)

    I decided to branch out from PedalPCB and have had an onslaught of PCBs arriving at my house this past month or so. The first one I decided to tackle was the Meridian from Aion FX, based on the Gyuatone/Nady PS-021. I built the bass version (PS-020). I wasn't able to find out much about the...

    Freddie Mercurial Boost

    I just finished this a little bit ago, it's a PedalPCB Mercurial Boost. I have only spent about 30 minutes playing with it but I think that this may be my first "always on" pedal. And whenever we get the band back together I may just have to have a couple three of them for different songs. I...

    First Breadboard Attempt. Feeling pretty good!

    My job requires me to spend lots of hours in front of the computer doing literally nothing other than waiting for someone to talk to. Other than it driving me to insanity and chipping away at my intelligence day by day it's not too bad, I guess. It gives me time to do stuff, but I can't really...

    Sander: Belt of Orbital?

    I am thinking of getting myself an inexpensive sander for bare enclosures and don't have a lot of metal sanding experience. My gut is telling me that an orbital sander will be more versatile and allow me to actually get a good polish if I want to take it that far. If not I can always finish by...

    Pair of Zappers

    I have a buddy who wanted "something interesting" so I decided to make him a Zapper and figured I would make myself one as well. It's the first time I used the no-film waterslide and I really love the way that it turned out. I have a lot to learn about getting it done more cleanly, but I am...

    Zapper Woes

    I finally got a few hours in the garage this morning to finish up a couple of Zappers I have been working on. Feeling a little frustrated because I have had very little time to myself these past couple of weeks (very difficult for me to deal with as an anxiety-ridden introvert) and I think that...

    Pick guard ID help.

    Hey folks, I used to do stagehand work in the early 2000's for large arenas and found this beer covered loaded pickguard under where extra bleachers are kept. Who knows how long it was there before I found it because the bridge pickup was already rusty when I found it. I found it again when I...

    Amentum build - first time etching

    I had the day off for Caesar Chavez day and spent some time finishing up this build as well as getting some PCBs built up. I feel pretty good about this one even though the paint didn't come out perfect. It was my first time etching and I learned a lot. The "DRIVE" lettering is neon yellow but...

    Tried my hand at Inkscape today and it was going well until...

    I tried to print! :ROFLMAO: :ROFLMAO: :ROFLMAO: Inkscape was actually pretty easy to use with a bit of Googling, at least for simple stuff like I wanted to do to get started. But my printer had some other ideas. I'm using an older Brother laserjet printer. First one (the crumpled one) came...
