Violet Ram's Head
« on: June 13, 2018, 08:26:06 AM »
I decided to redo the layout for my mini muff board.  I'm fairly pleased with how it turned out.  The first build i did with it is a miniature Violet Ram's Head.

That is stunning. Above and beyond your usual level of work!

Love the layout; it's a work of art in itself! What are you going toÖ do with it? 🙂

Where do you get your white PCBs fabricated?

Hot! I love the white PCB too, makes me think of nougat. (Must be hungry?)
Cool font on the enclosure, what's it called?  😊

Amazing!

Dave, have you considered starting pedal company and cashing in your talents?  ;D

Absolute perfection. Screw holes even spiffy on this one.

That might be the cleanest build I've ever seen. Maybe you're hiding a rat's nest of wires under the pcb?

There are definitely wires underneath the PCB.  I prefer not to board mount pots in 1590a builds. 

I use a lot of ribbon cable to keep it clean.  This is an older build.  Itís not nearly as clean as I do it these days (I have an improved footswitch board thatís cleaner).

Iíll take a new photo next time I wire up a 1590a
