Lightspeed - Klon and Afterlife in a 125b
« on: May 16, 2018, 06:59:19 AM »
Gudday all.  Here's Lightspeed, a Minitaur Klon and Afterlife compressor in a 125b.  Had to do top mounted jacks as I couldn't fit it any other way.  LEDs are hot glued in place, Afterlife is stuck to the rear of the Minitaur with doublesided tape.  The enclosure is a Tayda powercoat with datapol sticker and a coat of clear.  Not my best work or neatest guts, but it works...

Hey Willybomb, is there a trick to getting the hot glue to stick to the aluminum? I tried this and the glue didnít stick.
I sometimes build pedals as "Dan"
I built peddles for Bat Thumbís car.

Well there's a lot of shoehorning compression going on there.... well done to squeeze that all in!
Now you need small enough shoes to deal with the two foot switches...

I think I'd be saying "punch it, Chewie" in my head every time I stomped it.  :D

Yeah, it's a Pickdropper PCB.  I think I bought it last year.

The graphics are stolen off the internet, and from there I do my layouts in photoshop using the hardware vector libraries.  It gets laser printed on Datapol sticker paper (it's basically the stuff they use for car bumper stickers), and given a clearcoat or 3.

In this case I put glue on the sides of the LED, quickly jammed it in the hole (well, jammed isn't the right word as the hole is probably a mm too large) and followed up with more glue.  In my Black Gate and Dual Booster builds I just used lots of it.

1. Awesome work!! This is a great pedal, very well excited.

2. I need to build something like this so I can call it a KLOMP

Lol, I believe the correct term is "Klonpressor".
