Need to see guts or it's a rehoused Behringer.  ;D

That's a gorgeous build. How did you do the graphic?

😂😂😂😂😂😂

There痴 not much to it but I値l have a peek inside next week. Owing to the meters design there is an 砥pper and lower floor. I値l warn you now though, once it works I tend to jam the lid on these 杜af談s and make them look pretty on the outside.

I found a font online and popped it into MS Paint. Had to install a couple of plug ins.

After printing plain paper tests I printed the graphics in colour onto water slide transfer paper, sealed them and applied them like a model kit.

This is both inspired and inspiring. I love steampunk, diesel punk, atom punk stuff. This is my new favorite pedal. Great job!

Nice. Great vision.

Did you distress the aluminum plates and hardware so as to match the apparent age of the meter and especially the terminal / knobs?

I did a bit of aging on the aluminium and the other hardware, as you say, to try and pull everything together in terms of 菟atina
