Looking at your Harbinger build: Where do you get these fat orange caps? Just want to know the MFG/series so I can source some. I’ve been using the plastic boxes, but want to try these.

If you scroll to my entry you can see a big muff I did this way

That looks great. Do you use inkjet or laser for this method?

Thanks for all the tips Willybomb. I suppose I'll try at least one of mine with the transfer paper, since I already bought a 5-pack. I've been brush-lacquering 4 coats on my pedals and then gradually sand to fine, then polish, but guess I should go gentle and do light coats of spray-lacquer to keep the transfer intact. I did a quick search on the Datapol, but doesn't look like it's easily found here in the US. I really like your pedal themes. They all look great. Love the Last StarFighter pedal. I want to press that Death Blossom switch!!

Open Discussion / Pedal Decal: Anyone tried this method?
« on: June 16, 2019, 08:59:27 PM »
I've been doing some pedals with the typical light color paint and clear waterslide decal (then cover all that in lacquer) with good success. But now I created some artwork with colored graphics that I want to apply over darker painted enclosures.
I found this method, but haven't been able to dig up much on other folks doing it. Only that it prob won't work, but his results look pretty good. http://www.kitrae.net/music/Custom_Pedal_Graphics.html
Anyone else tried Tee-shirt transfers?
If not, I guess I could give white-backed waterslides a go. Here are the next pedal graphics I'm trying to apply...

Not sure if there’s already an existing or past project done but what about a combo high gain pedal with noise gate circuit built into it?

I did some screwing around and got it sounding so much better. Changed the C9 to 3n3, R9 to 1k, and C20 to a 4.7uF ceramic. A few others on the forum did these three mods so I tried it, and it’s a big improvement. No more whining or the DIM pot, but I do get that “motor-boat” effect past 30%. It’s cool though, because there’s noticeable reverb up to 50%, but anything past that is unusable. Changing C20 to 4.7uF makes the rate wayyyy more in range.
This is my first pedal build with a finished enclosure. I’m pretty happy with it. Still have to box it up. It’s not perfect, but OK for a first build. Here’s a couple pics so far. (I have a thing for “The Life Aquatic”. I know it’s a hated movie, but....)

Hey Guys,
Sorry to dig up an old thread.
I built a Gravity Wave, and have it on the test rig. Everything is working good, but I too am having the Dimension pot problem. Starts whining between 10-20%. I had done a lot of reading before this build, so I thought I'd be proactive, and went ahead and did the ( C9 change to 33n / R9 change to 10k ) from the start. These are the only mods I did to the original schematic. Before I start dicking around with things, I was wondering if anyone else had this result with just these changes? I thought about changing C20 to 4.7uF, but wouldn't this just make the rate speed slow down a bit? I don't think it would have any bearing on the whining at the dim pot issue.

Thanks, Jeff

Ah, same here..... maybe this: http://www.hammondmfg.com/dwg16.htm
They're a bit sturdier, and available in a couple of different sizes. Not sure about pricing.
If you stagger the switches like this:
 * * *
* * * *
You might be able to build it a bit more compact while still keeping spacing decent.

Actually they are on Digikeys website. $34 for the 14" wide and $40 for the 17" wide. Way better price than what I first looked at.

THANKS PAUL!!!

Staggering won't be an issue. I did look at these, but think the pricing may be higher as it's more of an industrial enclosure. Guess I'll need to give them a call.

Thanks!

I was thinking 10 effects switches and 1 bypass switch. Wanted a lot of space between them cuz I am Bigfoot.  8)

Hi guys. I'm planning on building n effects looper, and I found this for an enclosure:
http://www.iprojectbox.com/sloped-keyboard-style-enclosure-p-52.html
My concern is that the surface material where all the switches will be is only .05" (or 1/20") thick. Seems like this thickness may be prone to the surface bowing/creasing every time I hit a switch with my foot. What are your thoughts?
