Greetings again from Vancouver, BC
« on: February 16, 2016, 12:46:32 PM »
My original introduction thread got wiped in the server crash.  I'm Richard and I'm from Vancouver, BC.  I got started building pedals about a year and a half ago, after I ran out of guitars to rewire, and I haven't looked back.  This forum has been a huge help to me and I've really enjoyed using the project documents.  I like to start from scratch and create my own layouts, but I usually start from a Madbean schematic.  I've built a Kingslayer, a Sunking, a NomNom, a Current Lover, a Collosalus, an Afterlife, a Cupcake, a couple of Mudbunnies (Mudbunnys?), and a Retrograde.

My original introduction got some replies from other Vancouver/Canada/nearby people.  Hoping to get some replies from them again!  Maybe we should get a Vancouver meetup going sometime.

Hey Richard,

Pretty sure I replied the first time, but I'll put more or less the same stuff down.  There are a bunch of Canadians on here, some from out west, a good deal from out east.  I'm in Calgary, but I'm usually in Vancouver a couple of times a year on business, will let you know next time I'm in town.

The only known cure in the world for GAS is death.  That's my story, and I'm sticking to it.

Hi Richard and Curtis

My name is Joe and I'm in Vancouver as well.  Originally from Mtl.  Moved here in 94.

I'm primarily a guitar player.  Recently my good friend pogart got me into the whole "make it yourself" pedal stuff.  I've got some Madbean boards on the shelf, but I opted to start easy and build some BYOC kits first since I'd never even soldered before.   ;D  They've gone well so far!  I built a chorus and FET preamp and they rock.  The OD2 is almost done.  I also built a 1776 EQ.  I just need to box it up.

It's one of the coolest things I've ever done.  I like it a lot.  I've got a lot to learn but I'm enjoying the process as I go.  (despite the frustration)  Maybe the fact that I work in IT helps.   ;)

Good to meet you!

Joe aka Apocalypto
