    Olive Garden Plumes

    I don't really have an explanation for this, my wife did the concept and artwork based on the enclosure color. The olive branches were an experiment with using a negative mask with a cricut machine and gold sharpie. Not bad! Now if only I could drill holes straight... The plumes is my fave...

    Zvex SHO

    I've built a lot of PedalPCB boards now and finally had a go at doing a custom PCB. Went for the SHO because it's dead simple, so I could focus on the layout. Pretty fun! A lot of details to get right. Mad respect to PedalPCB for nailing all of it on so many boards. This one came out great, even...

    Tayda alpha pot equivalents?

    After a long wait I finally got the giant parts order from Tayda I'd been waiting on. All is well! Except they sent me some sort of weird microphone breakout board things instead of the B100k pots I needed (they were even inside the b100k parts bag! weird). I've already messaged their customer...

    A little tool I built for planning out builds

    I love building pedals, but I hate ordering parts, especially if I'm planning out several builds at once, or need to take inventory of the parts I have. Large builds can have a ton of resistors and caps, and I end up spending longer than I should counting how much of each value is needed...

    Flowery DRV

    Just finished this up. This is going to another music friend, who loves Rat-style distortions and shoegaze. Art is once again by my wife, who really outdid herself this time. Same process as that cactus one, just sharpie on top of the powder coat (with a few coats of clearcoat after). I'm...

    Phase II

    This was a fun build! If you remember that La Croix pedal you're already familiar with my wife's handiwork; this one I handed the enclosure off and let her do whatever. She went with a cactus this time and I'm really digging it. It turns out powder coat takes sharpie really well, and it's a...

    Titania 2 Transistor Choice

    Quick question, which I'm sure will seem a little silly in retrospect, but I'm a bit at a loss: I just finished up a titania 2 build, and everything works and all, but..................it does not sound much like the original. For lack of a better descriptor, I would describe my build as...

    Parenthesis, Tweed Sound

    Whew ok so this is my second go at the Parenthesis...first one was supposed to be mine, second was for a friend. You can get the lo-down on how the first run went in the troubleshooting forum :) This one, however, turned out great! It's going to an old bandmate in NYC who makes sludgy doom...

    Mango-flavored BBE Sonic Stomp

    My partner and I have been a little bored and stuck inside and...well...this happened. Art is all her, reusing acrylic paint from our halloween costumes years ago (we were La Croix cans) and then clear coated to hell and back. It's been super windy and the pedal took a spill while drying, so...

    DC jack woes

    Hey pedal pals, I've been building a few Informants for some friends; first one this morning went great (well enough to post in the build reports!), so I figured I'd have a go at another one. Essentially identical parts, all from the same order. It works! Until I go to box it up. With...

    Informant

    I have two more of these queued up for some music friends trapped in their tiny NYC studio apartments, but I built one for myself to start with in case things went south. Pretty happy with how it came out! Nowhere near as cool as the 1981 Inventions aesthetic but this is one of the only pedals...

    Parenthesis 2020 missing octave

    Just finished up this parenthesis build...the overdrive and boost sound massive, and I'm really pleased there, but the octave is completely absent when it's engaged. Here's the symptoms: - Everything but the octave bypassed: only the guitar's dry sound is coming through - Distortion and octave...

    Spirit Box

    First go at drilling my own enclosures went pretty ok! It won't win any beauty contests but it sounds great and I'm really happy with it! The textured black enclosure from Tayda has a really great feel, although I am feeling meh about the knobs and LED bezel but glad I tried them out. I really...

    Son of Ben

    This was a lot of fun! I had built the zen drive prior, and before that done kits, but this was by far the most challenging build I've taken on yet. Thanks SO MUCH to PedalPCB for not only having the highest quality PCBs I've seen, but also selling those pre-soldered J201s. Good lord. Seeing the...

    DBA Fuzz War (v2)

    Been listening to a lot of Thee Oh Sees, Ty Segall, Wand, Fuzz, etc., lots of great guitar sounds, and all heavy users of the Fuzz War. It's been tricky to find a reputable schematic or PCB...the ones I have found have mixed reviews when compared to the original. The v1 is apparently...
