Never Again
« on: December 07, 2017, 06:32:44 AM »
This build was done as a favor for the local guitar shop owner.  He's not only a good friend, but he's given me a lot of work over the years.  In fact, this was the final piece in a bunch of work I did towards a Mesa MkV 35W (NAD coming soon).

It's a rehoused DanEcho delay pedal.  I've always considered rehousing a PITA, and this was no exception.  I think this is the last one I'm going to do.  Unfortunately, I forgot to take a gutshot before giving it to him, so this is all I've got to show.

Very cool. Looks much better now. The dan-echo is a worthy little delay but I doubt that was any fun to do.

Love that faceplate!  I have a Dano Tuna Melt Trem that Iíve been meaning to rehouse but it just doesnít seem like I could rehouse it the way I would want and still get it in a comparably sized enclosure.  And the switching...

When I see "never again" from pickdropper, all I can think about is I'm glad I wasn't there.

That's high praise as Dan's got a great eye for design.  I think he does a better job at the techno-geek sort of vibe.  Whenever I do things like this, they always have a vaguely art deco look to them.

Damnation, that's sharp. Relay switching, too, looks like.


What faceplate material is that?

It's nothing fancy.  Just acrylic where I painted one side black and reverse etched it (everything backwards).  That way, the paint sits against the enclosure and can't get scratched away.

Ok. Youíve done it again.  That face plate is gorgeously done.  So freaking jealous of your skills.  Seriously that thing is just amazing.

Could you do a tutorial on this? Plse.
