Final 2017 Build - JMK Classic Trem
« on: January 08, 2018, 06:09:57 PM »
Knobs arrived today, allowing me to finally complete my last build of 2017! (Board was done, tested, and boxed before the new year so I'm counting it  ;)

Anyway, finished up the season with a JMK Classic Tremolo in a 1590BB, hand painted by a family member. Had some struggles with this circuit at first, but flipping around the LED seemed to work, only after I did it the second time though, so I'm guessing maybe it was in the re-flow of the LED or maybe other components. Either way, it's working now and it sounds awesome. Great way to finish out the year before next fall.

Stunning!
The lighting makes it look like the stomp and jacks are copper, which would have been extra awesome.   ;)

Superb artwork. Very nice guts and very comforting to see another builder getting creative with "resculpting" box caps with an iron. I pride myself as well :-)

Thanks for the love guys! I had my mother give this one a go since she went to art school. Glad to see everyone likes the art as much as I did!

Stunning!

I noticed that myself. I would LOVE to find copper switches. Too many ideas floating around my head now...

What can I say? I felt the need to add a little character and soul to this build ;)
