Title: "Waves Of Sound" (Madbean Double Flush)
Post by: mshuptar on August 26, 2013, 03:37:55 PM
I started working on this enclosure and populated the board at then end of June. Then I ended up moving to a new place and left this project untouched for three weeks. After I got settled, I dug this out and got all the off-board components wired up and tested it. Everything worked great. I (hastily) installed it in the enclosure so I could use it at rehearsal later that night. However, I then realized that I had flipped the board in a different direction when I was creating the decal for the enclosure so my Balance/Volume/Intensity labels on the enclosure didn't match the actual controls (insert facepalm here). SOOOOOOOO, I then scraped off the old decal and made a new one. Long story short, here's my "Waves Of Sound" tremolo and I absolutely dig it.

That box is way cool! I love that circuit too. I built a 2in1 a little bit ago with this and the Smoothie. They go well together.

I wish I have never had to do this! You're not alone I absolutely love this box. The color, the simplicity, and the layout.

I get seasick looking at it, in a good way, of course.  Is the LED green as well?  That would be awesome.

BTW, how did you do that graphic? It looks like it's embossed or something...

The "embossed" look is sort of a happy accident. When I was clear-coateding the decal, I think that I didn't wait for the previous coats to fully dry. When I finally let everything properly set, parts of the decal warped. However, most of the warping added texture around the black print. I don't think I could replicate the results again!

I did this on my last 2 builds, so I just rewired one which meant removing the onboard pots and on the Kraken I was able to turn the board around, upside down if you will.

Same here, last 2 builds as well. Had to strip and redo the sharkfin decal. Also just finished a tight metal preamp pedal and now just kicking myself as i just realised last night that the labels didnt match... Doh!
