My Tube Driver
« on: July 15, 2018, 09:12:58 AM »
Here is my completed Tube Driver built to THís specs! I built it into an old slot car transformer case trying to utilise as much of the existing drilled holes as possible. I added another custom tube guard to keep with the Atompunk look. Hope you like it! Itís an AWESOME pedal with a vintage Mullard tube fitted!

Very  nice!
The tube guard looks like art deco. Congrats for the cool idea.
As for the enclosure, hammered effect is always a nice finish, even better when it's vintage.

This looks great! Love the vintage looks and the cooler/tube guard works really well with the design.
THe only disadvantage is the location of the stomp, not quite accessible there...
I build pedals to hide my lousy playing.

Pedal building is like the opposite of sex.  All the fun stuff happens before you get in the box.

Thanks guys! Yeah the switch is a bit awkward but to be honest I donít tend to stand and play...sitting on the couch? Yes. Operating all my pedals with my fingers? Yeah.... :-[

Noooo, that's so cool.  That was my only comment that the footswitch would be tricky to get to but the art deco tube fins and old school hammertone and metal labels make this one a slam dunk.  If you played out live you could temp in one of those big mushroom caps for the switch.  Very tasty work here.
