I only THINK I know what I'm doing, LOL. Nowadays when I put a board or circuit together I try to exhaust every troubleshooting trick I know before reaching out to everyone here. Either way I need to be careful swapping out parts otherwise I'll fry the board. Not the end of the world if that does happen since 95% of the parts I can get from Tayda.You know what you're doing, so I'm sure you'll find the cause
Excellent point.Took some time this morning to swap out the tantalums for the box ones even though they wouldn't be flush on the board. Swapping out components on a finished board is a real PITA. Took me a half hour to do 3 components (including removing the circuits from the enclosure). The result? The Swedish Chainsaaaaaw sound!
What lesson did I learn here? Be 100% confident with any mods or changes to the circuit before committing it to solder.
The thing is, I tried it with Rustoleum and it worked pretty good. I had a bit left in one of the metallic series so i tried that out.I’d suggest sticking with the same brand to ensure chemical compatibility. Montana makes great products. The gold series is low flow—I strongly recommend it over the black series for painting enclosures. You’re able to get consistent thin layers.
Also, you can probably find Montana significantly cheaper at a local brick and mortar arts supply store than Amazon.
NB: there are two ‘Montana’ spray paint companies. The Montana from Germany is the one I’m talking about here. The Montana from Spain (stylized as ‘MTN’) is primarily geared toward graffiti and not recommended for pedals.
