Kevin could describe these pro line circuits as, "Does nothing more than emit sporadic fart noises along with an ear-piercing high pitched wail," and I'd still want to buy the boards and build them -- they're that beautiful!

Wait, they actually make a good effect? Bonus!

Could you say a bit about the finish?  Was an artwork file posted?  I couldn't find one....
Your pedal has a frosted look to it that is kind of interesting.

For the finish, I used one of the polished enclosures from Tayda.  I knew this was going to be a fancy pedal, I wanted to start with a fancy box too  :)

really fantastic job!  i've been eyeing this one off, good to know that it's reasonable to build.  will grab a PCB set at some stage.

on a side note, the anodised looking enclosure on the aion site looks amazing, been wondering how it was done:

I'm pretty sure its just transparent powdercoat (aka "candy coat"). Its not as deep blue as PPP's transparent, so maybe its a Mammoth color (I know they also offer a transparent blue)?

Kevin did hint that he may do a run of enclosures if there was enough interest.

+1 interest!  looks so good with the brushed aluminium texture.

thanks for the heads up about transparent coating i didn't know it was a thing.  this is the best colour match i could find, available as custom finish through mammoth but presumably on straight enclosure rather than brushed:

That was quick! It looks great, and the guts only get more curious about the circuit boards! :)

WOW! That was fast.

Enclosure on the site is from PPP - a brushed finish with Emerald Green Transparent, if I remember right. I just added my artwork PDF to the Blueshift project page, so you should be able to send that to them and get the same thing.

Man, with that setup fee from ppp a printed 125B comes out to over $50 with shipping, and I'm in the states!

I know.  Will be hard to decide what to do when I eventually build this (I've ordered the boards).  I'm hoping Kevin or someone else will pay for a run of these enclosures and sell them to us for something less.  Otherwise, I might do an etch.
