Retrograde 2019 - Octavia
« on: May 20, 2019, 12:11:00 PM »
Finished this one up this weekend.  No film decal on a Tayda box.  I would recommend to anyone planning to build this to place the jacks and the foot switch as low as possible.   It took me awhile to find just the right orientation of the jacks so I could get the cable tip in.  That waisted 1/4-1/2 inch on the bottom would have made everything much easier.

Awesome looking for sure. Did you use a 1590b?

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

Very cool.  Looks super neat inside.

My kid just broke his wrist today, so we've been looking at lots of x-rays that look exactly like those graphics.  :P

Yes, the daughter board and pins lower the transformer enough to fit it in a 1590b.

Most excellent as well! You've got a bit of a skeleton theme there goin'...  ;) Will fit nice by the side of the Cascadia.
