Post by: Aleph Null on February 24, 2017, 11:55:08 AM
This is a stock Fat Pant Jr. in vero.

No need for labels with just one control. I wasn't feeling inspired with regards to graphics and the winter weather wouldn't have allowed for reasonable dry times anyway.

I'm not going to win any tidiness awards with this build—or with any vero build, probably. Clearance between the output jack and trim pot is just above zero. I was more concerned with how well it will fit on a board.

I don't mind building into 1590As, but I've found the small from factor keeps them from mounting securely to a pedal board. The 1590B allows for more Velcro contact.

 The wide format allows for top-mounted-jacks, which are a must for me. You could also turn it sideways and it would still take up less space than the standard 1590B jack arrangement.
