like star wars episodes 7-9, the soft shitty reboot no one asked for

 ;D
I agree about SW 7-9 tho
It seems to me like Gibson trying to get pedal money. But no one associates meastro with chorus and delay. Only a couple fuzz pedals. I'm not sure what the price point is but it's probably on par with much better offerings by companies who just do pedals. There is nothing that sets these apart except the retro dated graphics. I'm waiting on the slash signature pedal 😂

Ok, I played with different caps in place of the 3n3. 1n was too thin and worked up to 2n2. Took just enough mids out to make it more balanced. Here's a sound clip showing picking dynamics.

Update: I changed the gain 2 pot to a C500k pot from linear. The result was a very nice range from clean to dirty. I tried a different tapers for gain 1 but as I thought the knob no longer functioned as it should. Great pedal.

Looks totally pro! Glad you like it.
Thanks Brian. The more I play it I think I'm gonna change the drive 2 gain pot the a C taper, it's bunched up in the last 10-15 percent. The volume pots could probably benefit from a logarithmic taper but it's not as big a deal. Other than that it's super cool. Best cleanup I've had from an OD, rivals germanium fuzz faces.

Thanks fellas!

This is awesome John! Super clean work once again. That no film is Dan had talked me into getting one of these boards and I gotta get around to it.
I'd be curious to hear what you think.  I was surprised, it seems to do heavy really well.  I want to try a 4558 in the TS side and mess some more with the comp trim.
It is a tube screamer into a rat and that's a classic tone wise.killer tones. So I imagine this can do heavy stuff great. Personally, I would add to much compression because each circuit has a good amount of compression already.

You madman! Amazing what some people can do. Love the enclosure color and graphics. And truly 10 pounds of shit in a 5 pound bag inside. Breath build.

Super tidy again, nice! 8)
LED placement worked out great, the whole graphic works with all that stuff going on.
Can you handle two footswitches on a 125B...? Because I don't even try to go there.
Thanks Stephan. It's not too bad with two switches on a 125b. The trick is using your foot on an angle. Most of the time I would leave it on 1 channel and that turn it on and off

I've had this board since it was released and like many of us don't get to it cause we get distracted by other builds. Well this weekend has been very productive. Since everyone slept in the past could days I was able to get up early and knock out two builds. Gotta get it in while I can. This is a really cool one spend about an hour with it on the test rig before boxing. Tried with numerous guitars and its good with all of them. Can do low to semi high gain and with two channels and lots of tone shaping control between the tone (mids control) and internal dip switches you can tailor to any rig. I prefer the reactive mode because you get excellent volume knob cleanup and dynamics. No film on tayda enclosure. I took the route Brian did for his graphic and went with Mysterio. Another great layout and pedal from Brian. Highly recommend for a different style of drive pedal.

Here's another excellent Bass Drive from my homie David aka Storyboardist. Versatile bass drive to has lots 4 clipping options, clean blend and drive can go from low gain to fuzz like. Bonus, also sounds good on guitar. Playing more bass lately so I'm assembling bass circuits for a dedicated board. No film on tayda enclosure with Bullseye. I'll try and get a sound clip up this weekend.

I was going to post what's been going on with me, but I don't own an SG, so I don't think I qualify for this thread.  ;-)

Maybe I'll have to buy culturejam's.
I do think it's fair to say that the question "what is everyone doing" is answered.

Looking and drooling at SG's.
This is a fact Stephan. I was constantly struggling to find a Gibson style guitar that I liked anymore. Most Les Pauls and 335s are either to heavy, or to dark and muddy sounding to me. The other thing is that most Gibson guitars look outdated and gaudy with flame mapled sunburst. They look like something a lawyer or doctor wearing khakis and a sweater wrapped around their neck would play. The SG looks modern and sexy. They are snappier and brighter and the Gibson that I can really get on with.

That looks awesome, Chris!  BM will be stoked.......well at least he better be, or you'll roast him  ;D

This one came from John aka Bio77. I got it for painting an enclosure for him last summer. Still waiting to see his build report with it.
I'm still trying to figure out how to make face plates.  That box looks perfect, I'm too scared to try no film on it.
Gordo has that fancy laser engraver, you might try talking to him about it.
