Post by: Gledison on September 28, 2013, 01:51:58 AM
Ive just posted on the monthly contest more due to the feedback/comments.
just saw that overthere no comments are possible, so I posted again here...hope its ok :S
This is my second build. No modifications. original layout.
AC128 and AC125s.
First I've tried different Germanium trannys on a breadboard :P

Ive done a clear coat on a powder coated enclosure, but it seems that I will have some probs in the future. I can see very little alligatoring on the surface what might need a new coat in the future.
and the test...turn the volume down a little bit first...:P
comments are highly welcome!
Cheers

That's a really nice build! The finish reminds me of the inside of a coffin💀. And room for a battery too! Good job!

  In a morbid nice kinda way  :)

I love the madness and versatility of this pedal. It is literately a factory of fuzz  ;)

I really like the presentation here! What make is the enclosure -- not often I see those slats on the inner sides.

Nice build and loved the demo. That thing is crazy weird (in a good way).

hey Alanp, believe, it looks nice with the slats, but it reduces quite of the internal space.
some of the top I had to sand it off in order to fit the pots properly. so you might count with an expected extra work!
cheers

Thanks a lot mate! this is my second build. so im learning by looking to the other posts to get as much information as I can. soon I will try to etch a pcb for the 3PDT, it might organize even more the wires :P
@Billstein: cheers mate, yes the sounds are crazy, at the beginning I thought I did something wrong :P
cheers
