Title: Super Supro - ROG Supreaux Deux
Post by: Bluestrat on July 16, 2014, 06:14:59 PM
Been a while since I've posted. Been Building guitars and a few pedals along the way.

I love this pedal!! Total old school sound. Great for roots music. Gritty, gutsy, loud and not a bad tone in the mix. Sounds great with my '70 Super Reverb as well as a little 5watt Marshall type I have.

Board is from Often FX (where did they go?). It's the Runoffgroove Supreaux Deux.

Designed the graphics in Photoshop and etched it in ferric chloride. The top has been lacquered.  The knobs are vintage.

This has gotta be one of my favorite dirt pedals.

O_o That looks SICK!!  I soldered mine this week (also an OftenFx pcb) but I'm afraid mine isn't going to look that cool (although I was going to use the Supro logo too)

Supreme bad-assery!  Those knobs are perfect for the look of this pedal, too.

I can only echo what others have already said: Outstanding inside and out! Great retro look and I covet those knobs.
I am impressed that you got that sharp of an etch with a PS design. I had a lot fo probs with edges until I switched to vector graphics.
If you don't mind me asking, how did you do the cool mottled paint finish on the top?

Thanks! My PS files are at 300ppi at 100% of size. the key to getting them sharp is to apply sharpening and print onto a photo grade matte paper like epson presentation matte. the PNP can only be as sharp as the print you copy from.

The mottled finish was caused by the etchant on the aluminum. Usually I would just paint over that but I thought it looked good so I just buffed the top and applied clear lacquer to it. Has about 4 coats. that will really make your etch pop.

Fantastic work. Great design and etch. Reminds me of the Bioshock video games futuristic/art deco style.

Please could I ask where the knobs are from?
