This has to be my favorite pedal that I have built so far. I liked it so much that I built it twice -- I "loaned" my first one to our lead guitarist, and he begged me to let him keep it, so I built another one for myself.

I bought the first one because a friend gave me his broken OCD to fix. I was having trouble getting it working, so I bought this one as a back up. Eventually I was able to get the OCD fixed, and for a while, I had both the ADHD and the OCD to do a side-by-side comparison. Without a doubt @Robert nailed this one, and in my opinion the ADHD sounds better than the OCD. I'm not entirely sure which version I built since the build documentation hasn't been posted yet, but I built it based on what was printed on the PCB. The only mod I made was to swap out the A500K drive pot with an A1M because that was what was in the OCD.

The first one I built was in a white enclosure with black knobs, but I think I like this cream colored enclosure with the cream colored knobs better.

Your enthusiasm for this has convinced me to add this to my wish list, improved input board and all.

This is a nice clean build, the board looks like a tight fit.
Yeah, I love this one. The board is a slightly tight fit mostly because I only had 50v 1u caps instead of the 25v that the build called for. As a result, I had to use a compact foot switch. It probably would have fit regardless, but I wanted to use the chrome foot switch bevel, which required me to recess the foot switch more than usual. There's nothing too tight on this build.
