Nice! I recently ordered this board. Is that a 125b? Ialso where you find relays?

Marc at Skreddy said one of the design goals of the screwdriver was to be able to get page tones with a strat. Here's my strat's bridge pickup into the cosmo->secret preamp->deluxe reverb

Very cool. Any sound clips?

It's not a full on demo but here is a quick clip I took while messing around with a new method @harryklippton turned me on to. Running my audio interface directly into my phone and using it as the internal mic. I'm running my strat into the wah into my tone bender mk1.5 into my deluxe reverb. Amp is going thru my two notes thru a celestion IR into the audio interface.

Nice one! Iíve got one in the queue. Were you trying to write a more effusive praise for a circuit than my flintlock write-up?
In all honesty I wanna know more than just someone built something. Often times people just show pictures and are like I did this, makes sound. I wanna know a reason why I should build so mething, what's cool about it. I think people should give relatable experience when it comes to a build.
Oh I agree completely. Thorough build reports are also one of the only ways to get an honest review of a circuit it seems (compared to other product reviews which are basically a commercial). I was just kidding. Glad to see people get genuinely excited about a build! 
Thank you! I appreciate people who also put in the time and effort to do a detailed build report or a video. I try to let people know what a project is like, especially the stuff from PedalPcb with no real build docs or non descript website lol
My build doesn't have the sexy black glass but agree...this thing is very versatile.  It's the next one getting boxed up.
Sexy black glass...lol coffee, transistors and mistresses all tall, dark , sexy and too hot to handle

Thanks guys it's a good sounding circuit and I'm glad Brian did the board for it or I might not have tried it.

Here is a really good one. Looking for a fuzz? Overdrive? Everything in between? This is it. A MOSFET treble booster into a si/GE fuzz face with no temperature instability and no impedance issues. This thing can scream, wail, moan and sing. It don't care about buffers or placement. The presence and tightness are great tone sculpting tool to work with any guitar/amp combo.
I really like this and wish I would have played one years ago. Matte white enclosure with no film decal. Cosmo the space dog from gotg for artwork. I really like this graphic of him versus the more cartoony images that are normally used. Build one, its out of this world lol. Another fantastic board from Brian.

General Questions / Re: Enclosure for Total Recall

You can either get a taller enclosure which I recommend, or you can fill them and redrill. If you redrill I recommend using low profile lumberg jacks and put them as high as you can..you can file Dow the lip of the lid around the jacks so it will close and screw down.

That came out great! And I may need to contract you to write product/circuit descriptions. lol Glad you dig it
I would do it for boards, maybe you could start expanding modulation offerings...thats my thing.

Build Reports / Nebula-Wah

I love wah, and my byoc has so many options that I wanted something less daunting to dial in. The tearjearker is pretty much my byoc. I ended up with the sham wah on the recommendation of @Harry Klippton as he has an actual BBE Ben wah. We all know the vertex debacle hence the sham wah name. I found a used revF crybaby gcb-95 wah from my local guitar center for 48 dollars and got to work. the shell, and the power jack/in out jacks were used from the original wah. The pot is from area51 and the halo inductor came from @fig. Simple straightforward build that sounds really good. I wired the body trimmer as an external knob just like the original wah. It sits somewhere tonally in the classic clyde mccoy sound. The body knob can make it more subtle or more dramatic sounding. The other addition is the use of a foxrox wah output buffer so the wah can be placed in front of fuzz and get the full range of sweep with no oscillations. It buffer built on very also has a volume trimmer to set overal output.
I ended up flipping over the craybaby front badge and bottom plate, sanding them down and doing no film graphics. Went with nebula because she is a total badass, a total heartthrob and a total basket case. Went with a blue led as well to complete the nebula theme. Overall I'm super happy with the way the Nebul-Wah turned out. If your looking for a good sounding wah that has a lower part count and wont give you options paralysis to dial it in then give this a whirl.

Here is effectslayouts Hot Bod. It's his take on the old DOD fx91 bass drive. It's not super high gain so it's a low to mid gain drive but it has a clean blend for adding versatility and preserving low end. Having played this on my p-bass for several hours I can get all kinds of overdrive tones with ease. I wish more bass drive pedals had the clean blend and that there where more bass centric projects like this with the blend. Simple build, low parts count and ease to dial in make it a winner in my book.
Went with no film on light violet tayda enclosure. Went with Psylocke on the cover because simply put, she has a hot bod. And Olivia Munn...come on now.

When I want extreme over the top this is what I would go for. My favorite is still the mistress, just because I feel it's the most musical and warmest of the flangers. It's not as extreme and for my playing that's what I dig, but for the extreme and pushing the boundaries of what a flanger or any bbd modulation can do it's hard to beat the flintlock.

Killer build! So clean inside and that color enclosure and faceplate is to die for. I think the knobs look good. You knocked it out the park and your write up us 100% accurate.
