Couldn't have happened to a nicer guy  ::) I do feel bad for his employees though, they don't deserve to lose their jobs just because their jerk of a boss couldn't resist running his mouth.

It's a tough one, but I gotta recommend the Aion Blueshift. Not only is an incredible-sounding circuit that truly is unique among choruses but the build itself feels like a rite of passage; if you can pull it off, you can handle almost anything!

Oh man that color looks fantastic! I really wish I would've grabbed one while I had the chance, definitely gonna have to keep an eye out for their limited-edition drops in the future. Your graphics and choice of knobs work really well with it as well and makes for a super clean-looking build. Nice work!

I gotta say man, you never fail to produce a truly spectacular-looking pedal! I love the fact that you matched the color scheme and general style of the graphics while making them so much cooler. Incredible work!

Holy crap that build is nice! That wire routing is super clean, and the graphics are just downright awesome. Nice work!

Nice work! I love the graphics, they're simple yet impactful. I totally feel you on ordering PCBs, it's so quick and easy these days that I almost never order boards from vendors anymore unless they're something special (and usually more complicated than I can manage in my free version of Eagle). It still can't beat vero for spontaneity, though- PCBs still require planning and time for fabrication and shipping, whereas on vero you can take a circuit from an idea to a functional prototype in a single evening. So there's definitely room for both methods in my toolbox  :)

Man, that thing is slick! I've been interested in the GTO for awhile now, might have to give this one a shot! Did you drill out the enclosure yourself or order one of the predrilled ones they offer? Either way that is one hell of a clean build!

Get weird with it and build a PLL  8)

Holy crap, that's gotta be the coolest Tube Screamer clone I've ever seen! That thing is stunning inside and out, and I love the way you paid homage to the venerable Roland TR-808 with the graphics. Incredible work!

Judge you? For what? That thing is beautiful! Sure, Gibson may not be the greatest company, their guitars can be kind of overpriced, and their fanboys can be rather annoying but that doesn't mean that they don't make good instruments (most of the time, anyway). Enjoy your sweet new score!

You can't go wrong with the classics, that thing looks and sounds great! Nice work!

I'm always super impressed by your builds, that polished enclosure and matching caps and resistors really make for a classy pedal. Great work!

I seen the Sansamp Classic is back on the market.
I never had it, nor built it. Periodically I search some info about it, and every time I see that the schematic is not accurate at 100%, often it had oscillation problem.
I guess the PCB is design by you.
Do you mind to share the schematic you used? Just if you can! ;)

The issue with verifying any of the schematics out there is that the boards on the originals were encased in some sort of ceramic/epoxy combo which made non-destructively tracing them impossible so you kind of had to take it on faith. That doesn't seem to be the case with the reissue from the one gutshot I've seen but I haven't really seen anyone poke around in one yet either. FWIW the schematic I used (which came from GilaCrisis on the DIYStompbox forums) only gave me problems when I tried to build it on perfboard and that was almost certainly a result of the multiple long runs of wire in close proximity to each other going to the DIP switch, which is a recipe for oscillation no matter how you slice it and is the primary reason I ended up making a PCB for it. It seems to sound about right based on the demos I've listened to which lends at least some credibility to the accuracy of the schematic, although to be fair I've never had an original or a reissue on hand to compare it directly.

In any case, here is the schematic I found for it originally:

And here is the schematic for my board with a few minor improvements to the power supply and a conversion to true bypass:

Nice work, I love the graphics! Having just finished up a Fat Pants Jr board I had laying around I can definitely agree that it's a wonderful little boost. It may just be a single JFet but there's definitely something special about it!

Amazing work! That thing looks and sounds incredible, and that layout is something else!
