Oh man you gotta be kidding, so cool. I live bees. Not Africanized.
I want one. Did you bee lovers ever see I think cycle 2 from Matthew Barney's "cremaster" film series? Mysterious bee references abound.
Would love to hear it and you send me a board, I send you money so you can buy more bees.
I suspect there will be quite a few people who want to give you money, Jimmy, in exchange for one of those Shetland Centaurs  ;D
If there is enough interest I'd do a small 10 piece run.

I've been a fan of many of your builds but I think that's my new favorite.

Mine too!

It's like all your lost pedals built a super pedal to rule the world.


Thanks guys, thats a great compliment. That comment made my laugh, thanks Josh :)

Thats a beautiful build mate  :o.

I really like that finish. You have convinced me that I need a Powdercoating kit for Christmas  :D!

I am really impressed by your PCB layout as well; nice and neat considering the amount of stuff in that small space.

On a side note; my Mum is into bee keeping. They are fascinating, if a little delicate, creatures I have to say (plus free honey is always a good thing  :D).

Did you get a good crop from yours this year?

Cool, powdercoating really is easier than people think once you work out the initial bugs. Thanks, i was pretty happy about this layout. No honey yet this year expecting some soon. We split all of our hive in spring so they have to recover. We are up to about 40 hives. They are amazing creatures.

Thanks again for the compliments guy!!!

How long does it usually take to get your PCBs back?
Judging by those sexay purple pcbs, I assume you used dorkbot?

I've actually never done a 1590a build, but have managed my 1590b's with back mounted jacks.
With side jacks, don't the 1590a's take up just as much space on the pedal board then?
Not to criticize your stunning build at all, just surprised at the lack of "1590b with back mounted jacks".

In case anyone is wondering, if you shave down the top of those plastic jacks you used, it's just enough space to fit under the pots.

Dorkbot takes about 3 weeks

I don't think so. with the 1590b you still have to put the dc jack on the side (i haven't tried any of those super small dc jacks some people are using, maybe they would work.), creating a wider footprint. Even with the side jacks, i think a 1590a with right angle jacks is still considerably smaller than a 1590b

kester "44" 63/37 .020 MUCH better than the stuff i was using before.

Thanks for all the super compliments guys!!!

Great finish too, how do you get the design pressed into the finish.
Take it easy, Matt.

3 layers of high temp vinyl stacked via registration marks. Slow powder coat cure to prevent the melting of vinyl before the powder can flow.

I like the finish! As admirable as it is that you got a klone into a 1590a, I think that understated finish is fanfreakingtastic.


Awesome, i glad someone else likes this finish as much as i do.

Aw, you're killing me.

Did you make your own layout from scratch, or use (or adapt) saxoftenest's layout?

No, all original. Actually i copied Brians schematic. Layout is completely mine.

Got all of the passives except one in the same direction :) I used all ceramics for polarized cap positions, even the two 47uf's. Bat41's for the diodes but got some oa126's on the way. I made the mistake of not measuring the template i had in eagle and paid the price. As you can see in the top of the enclosure the cutouts are not deep enough which pushed the pcb down, luckily i was able to still make it fit  ::) Eagle files updated, that won't happen again. I've never used these type of jacks before didn't realize they were switching until it was wired up, next time i will have the i/o's switched to ground.

As usual crappy pic's don't do the pedals finish justice. Finished in DC texture powder coat. Embossed graphics. Aluminum knobs from smallbear. Background is actual beeswax that i use in my beekeeping adventures :)

This particular build sounds really midrangey for some reason. Maybe the carbon comp resistor tolerances?

Cool let us know how it goes, it's gonna be a while before I get to it.

Looking at that one now - thanks for the link....

Would this one require me to build the buffer on vero or something like that, and just switch it in and out of the circuit?  Or would there be a way to incorporate the buffer pads on the board and the resistors on the switch?

I haven't actually used that switching (yet) but that particular diagram uses the circuits first opamp as the buffer.

If you wanted to use a add on vero or pcb it would be simple to use a dpdt to switch the input on the center lugs and use the outer lugs for true bypass on one side and buffered on the other. Only thing would be while in buffered and drive mode the signal would be buffered twice, once by the Klon circuit and once by the buffer on the dpdt switch.

Can't verify that one but this one seems to have been used before.

Your playing is awesome. You always hug that edge of breakup tone that has the mellowest vibe. Love it! Thanks.

+1 your playing is awesome

Dude all of  your builds are insane!! The outside is perfect, the name plate and the textured black are awesome. The guts are immaculate considering how much is going on in this thing. This one is just terrific inside and out.

Do you own all of the equipment you etch and cut with?

Nice build.

Also... a slightly cheaper option that I intend to try soon has been created by our own gtr2... anyone used this yet?

Voodoo thinks enough of that type of system to use them in there commercial products. I'll place my order for Josh's(gtr2) system on payday :)

Your builds always have a very refined look to them. Looks awesome.
