All the transistor sets are from smallbear. Generic sets, some had markings, some did not. Some ac128s in there that had markings. I wish I had a transistor tester to let me know what they were but they sound good, right gain and leakage and bias properly.

Very cool collection. Of course I have to ask, which one is your favorite and why?
Out of the group I think the mki is my favorite, the texture and feel is nasty and unruly and it's just nasty...just how I like it!

Fantastic build! I want to build one of these so I will take your advise about the log volume pot.

Boston terriers are the best! Hope the little guy gets better.

Your builds all look great. Yes, I love chorus as well. Back in the '80s, it wasn't just the cheesy pop bands using pops up on Husker Du, Dinosaur Jr., and other bands' recordings from the era.
Thanks, he's on the upswing now. And modulation in general is great. Some of my favorite bands are from the late 80s to mid 90s alt music scene and made some of the best music using chorus, flanger and phasers. I have  a lectric spaceharpv2 and a mbp current lover up next my bench.

Nice builds all around and the old Dymo labels look very industrial chic.  But the important stuff: how's the dog???
Thanks, I love the Dymo. The Dog is doing better, he's on the mend. He had gotten a really bad UTI and is on his second round of antibiotics. Throwing up for 2 weeks and battling dehydration, he is finally eating again which had me worried. He's a boston terrier who weighed 26lbs and dropped down to 22. he's my inter-species  life partner and it was like seeing the kids sick. He has a spot by my bench so he gets rest while I build.

Completed a bunch of new builds the past couple weeks but waiting for paint to dry, kids starting school and a really sick dog, i'm finally getting around to putting knobs on and taking pictures. this will be the first wave of build reports.
first up is a 1776 cardinal tremolo. turned out great and love how it sounds. Shout out to Jon Patton for his insight on an issue I was having(me being a dumb-ass).

now a couple of madbean builds. Heres a Pork Barrel with MN3207. love this thing as an 80's child.

Now the Aquaboy. no modulation on this one. xvive mn3005. So perfect. I can't wait to start my Aquaboy DLX now. I cant turn it off. I'm using it as a faux reverb at the moment, its just works so much better with my tungsten amp than a reverb pedal.

Nice! I miss lic. Great sorted rare transistors at a good price. Well done!
Is Lic Pedals not in business anymore?  I just saw on Ebay that "the seller is away". I like the way they sort and label transistors like those for the Tonebender.

I got this set last december right before he dropped off. He's out of buisness right now and all my other sets are from smallbear or pedalhacker

I miss them too! That was where I liked to get shielded cable in addition to the occasional transistor.

Anyway, great build! Could I ask which brand of hammered spray paint you used? I'm planning on boxing a MkII in the next few weeks and am hoping to do that same color.

Thanks, I use rustoleum hammered paints. Even though its paint and primer in one I still do two coats of primer and two or three coats of paint 5 mins between each coat. this is just regular silver. These are the best for hiding defects in the enclosure.

Aion Tonebender MkII with ac125s I got from Lic pedals a while back. No deviations from the original schematic, pure vintage tone here. Rips thru my Tungsten Buckwheat. I did some painting yesterday so I'm boxing up 3 more build tomorrow so look out for 2 more benders and a pork barrel real soon.

I have no idea what it sounds like so now I have to look it up. It looks good and really clean. I'm working my way up to bigger builds like this, and you are making me want to challenge myself.

I'm off work till September 9th because I had carpal tunnel surgery last Wednesday.

 It's getting better everyday and later this week I'm gonna start working on some builds. I have a trio of tonebenders (mk1, mk1.5 and mkIII) an auqaboy and a pork barrel up first. Look out for build reports in the following week. So what builds do you guys have cooking up next?
