Howdy
« on: December 21, 2014, 01:23:02 AM »
Hi all. I'm new to this joint, and was recently directed here by my real-life friend, Lee, AKA, Leevibe. I've been playing music and dabbling in recording and DIY electronics on a small level for a long time now, and am finally going to bite the bullet and build a pedal soon.

In my "free" time, I run a little mini-donut shop/record store/used music gear/used book store in Washougal, WA. I'm also a recovering web developer/graphic designer of close to 20 years, and play in a little shoegaze/power pop band with my girlfriend/partner person.

I look forward to learning new stuff, and adding some new effects to my pedalboard.

-Bret

Welcome to the addiction! I should warn you that once you build the first pedal there's no know cure.
...and then of course I've got this terrible pain in all the diodes down my left hand side...

Glad to see you here Bret. I hope I get some free donuts and coffee out of introducing you to this community. :)

Looking forward to your first build report here!

Thanks Stomptown and Cody! Cody, we usually do a covers EP each year in December, but we are passing on it this year so we can keep making progress on our album. Anyhow, glad you're enjoying the covers! Thanks!
