Only 100 hours?

Bloody hell....

More than 100 hours. Out from what my wife has counted.

That is some fantastic work. Shoot, even I don't have the guts to attempt something so ambitious! You should be very proud of your work. And, keep those pics...I sense a good build of the year contender here :)
I own madbeanpedals (duh). I am part owner of Function F(X).

Congratulations on this massive undertaking.  In addition to the technical challenges, the painting on the board, decals, and knob choices look fantastic!

The only obstacle to winning will be creating a demo video of reasonable duration to fully show it off.   ;D

Does the pedal weigh more than your intern?

He is a big boy. Surprisingly, the pedal weight isn't as heavy as him.

Those colored nuts on your footswitches look great.   Where did they come from?

Found them on the internet at lovemyswitches.  I didn't even know those existed.   Nice touch for your mega pedal!

Didnít see your question, I apologize. Yes, it was from BLMS, anodized nuts. They are really nice and work as label for the LOOP/CLUSTER.
