Jeeeeeeezzz....  :o


Wow!  :o That's pretty spectacular! And, blending two phasers in parallel, does it give a useful sound? Very different from just 1 phaser?
I personally find it fun and useful and I also like to use just one phaser on and other off, so basically clean with a bit of phaser mixed in and then I can step on the footswitch of second phaser and have the full on sound of two phaser in different speeds for example. I like it, of course it's a matter of taste.
I designed the mixer boards myself based on this schematic and there is a board available from JMK pedals:

I did the parallel phaser thing with two mutron phasers in this box. Both phaser can be on or just one and the splitter / mixer allows for blending clean and phased signal. One attraction of this is for me as well that I can blend with expression pedal between the two phasers or seamlessly from clean to phaser sound.

Oh man so sorry to hear... I'm just back from an extended tour and absence from forum to find this post.
Gut-wrenching stuff. They grow so close and are family, those lovely critters.

Here's our Phoebe.

So glad to hear you're on the mend and that you went through this and are still standing and walking on.
Totally understand that this changes your perspective more than any words can.
Keep it up!

He had a broken tooth that he didnít look after, led to an egg size abscess that drained into his lungs and caused the infection to spread throughout his body. This happened as he was waiting at a hospital to get the tooth and abscess removed.  He didnít remember anything after the rupture, woke up 2 weeks later in a hospital 500km away with tubes coming out of everywhere.
Wow man that's a lot of deep shit stuff to deal with...!
All the best and best of recovery, speedy and steady, to Rej!

Hmm I don't have a dremel just some stepped drill bits.  I picked up 5 small lexan sheets from a local supplier for just under £6 so im going to have a go with those.  Each one should be big enough for 2 125b builds or 1 1590bb.

If I break a few Ill look into getting a dremel.  I love the finish from envirotex but fancy trying something new.
I guess it's just a matter of trial and error, first do a bit with offcut sizes for practise I'd say before you stuff up a good one. Having said that, it's not such a big deal to break one, the material is not that expensive and you just start again.
I do cut the acrylic to size with a table saw and put a piece of sacrificial mdf thin board (like 4 mm thick or so, whatever is in the offcut bin) to minimise tear out on the sides. I do cut the faceplate slightly oversize, like 2mm overhang on sides, and then sand it down to size with beltsander as shown in tutorial.
But it's ultimately always a bit of trialing things and see what your best process becomes when you play around with what you have.
This is just hints from what works for me.

Insanely good!

You do know that there are bigger enclosures that could make your life easier, don't ya...? ;)
Although storage would be a bigger problem even with the backing tray thing...
