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.

Another amazing build. I love those acrylic clear faceplates and that black paint inside the enclosure

Build Reports / Slow loris

You know what its all about and how it sounds, except BigMonk lol. I wanted yet another for an alternate board for bass that I'm working on. Motorola metal can 308. Just a mean sounding pedal. Love Brian's 2020 to present layouts, so clean.

If you jumpered them, it would be in bypass all the time. Wire the in and out at the bottom directly to the input jack and out put jacks.

I feel the same. I have the passion even if I don't always have the time. The big thing for me is that there wasn't alot of projects that were exciting or excited me. Brian has been on fire since summer.

In my build I didn't experience the LFO noise you are describing. I had a slight distortion to the phasing kinda like a phase 90. I was able to dial most of it out by using a j201 for the jfet.

Awesome build, Chris!  I dig what you did with the text around the shield.  Looks legit  8)
Thanks John, trying to learn new tricks and mix it up. Having gone from paint.net to actual praphic design software made me up my game. Your ganna start seeing some really cool stuff mixed in from time to time with my general aesthetic.

Here is a great project from effectslayouts that was recently released. Based on the old freedom amplifier's preamp section. Could use it to go direct to a daw or as a different flavor of overdrive. Josh Scott did a video on the amp and gives a great idea of the tone. Straight forward build with no issues. Artwork inspired by @jjjimi84.

Is that one of the newer '61s? Missed a couple opportunities in the last few months to get one at a really good price but I've committed to selling a couple guitars before buying a third SG. I'm trying to keep my total guitar count to 5 but I'm already +1, haha.
Iím not bragging, but I have just too damn many. How do you decide what to sell? Itís like selling my kids. I mean Iím sure I could sell the oldest boy, but the restÖ

I had twenty at one time about 8 years ago . Had a massive sell of. I sold everything that didn't get played. I decided after that that anything I had was something that Inspired me to play and actually got used.all my guitars serve a purpose, they sound unique and get played. There's Paul I sold never got played so off it went. I decided after the sell off that for one to come in one had to go too. I hate feeling like a collector or hoarder.

It is Brian, the new standard 61. Sounds and plays excellent. I sold a Les Paul tribute to get it and so glad I did. I'm set now on guitars, all bases covered including bass, my p-bass. Not pictured is my martin acoustic, that stays in the case.

Another tidy build by Thewintersoldier- can you tell us what's going on with the "BITE" control?  There's no explanation in the build doc, and the "GAIN" and "VOLUME" functions are already spoken for- I'm puzzled

Is anyone here old enough to remember "Freedom Rock"? Cause that's where my mind went right away.

I must not be old enough, but can I assume that it's the nationalist-propaganda-ridden precursor to "School House Rock?"

This is from the EHX website:
Bite-Alters the amplifierís gain level and frequency response. Turning this control clockwise increases the gain and treble content. This control is also very interactive with the VOLUME control; changing one affects the other.

Nice job man, I like it. How does it sound?
Josh at jhs did a demo of the amp. The pedal is pretty spot on.
