So cool. What a story!

Wow, never thought I would see my pedal show up on a reverse engineering DIY project, cool.
A friend and I designed this circuit and the PCB CAD, yes, in my basement (haha).
Life got too busy to continue hand building these.
Perhaps I should dig out some old un-built PCBs and build some?

Thanks for jumping in! Yeah. You should build those suckers up!

I just cleaned up my workstation a couple weeks ago. Itís a dang good feeling.

Spectacular execution all around! Like that PCB for the jacks. With the wires on there, looks like the PCB is designed for multiple configurations.

Yeah. Thatís a clever board. Sweet build!

Every once in a while something pops up on here that is truly inspiring. This is so next level. Thanks for documenting the process. Itís amazing.

I love that graphic. Nice work!

I have to agree that this shouldn't count as a single board.  I also don't like it (I changed my mind about using stronger negative language).

I'm more impressed by this, which is just as practical:

Whoa. If Nigel had this he'd need a cello to play his guitar with.

I don't want to be snarky, but how is this the world's biggest pedal board? Wouldn't it rightly be called "most pedalboards strung together?" It's 34 boards, not one board. What am I missing? It's still a fun idea but some poor dude is out there somewhere who really does have the world's largest board. I feel sorry for him whoever he is.

You definitely want to use a common anode, that way the cathodes can just go to their relevant switch ground points.

My experience with them is that you don't get multiple colours at once if they're all switched on at the same time, you'll get whichever colour has the lowest forward voltage.  I might be wrong though as I normally use them as Red or Green, or Blue (see my Leviathan build where I have one on a rotary switch that switched between a treble booster, an SHO, or the treble booster into the SHO).

You would definitely struggle to get good color mixing, it at all. I think the right way to do that would be to control them with PWM, which gets over complex.

The carling momentary feels quite a bit different than the latching version. It kind of splits the difference between the cheap soft touch and a normal latching. It is firm enough that I donít think it would be too easy to trigger when the treadle is toe down. Think of it as a soft touch that takes significant force to engage. When it does, it is kind of a smooth ďthunkĒ instead of a click and I donít think it would rattle like the DPDT and 3PDT.

Iíve thought about solutions for this too. I like the relay idea. I think Carlingís momentary switch could be the answer. They look similar to the run of the mill cheapie soft touch momentary switches but they have a pretty firm action and they donít rattle. They arenít cheap but they are bomb proof.
