I look forward to seeing your finished pedal. I still have my 2015 version and find It best at the "unchained" sound. I might have to go back and tweak mine after reading your write up.

Looks Great John, another tight build. The graphics still look good but I feel you on the no film. Last time I bought more the paper itself was different as well. I think it also might start going bad the longer it sits but can't confirm it. For 6 dollars extra per enclosure it's not bad to do a UV print. Still a banging build!

I have never had tayda put the wrong resistors in the bags, never once in like 7 years. In fact the only time I ever got the wrong thing from them was because I clicked on the wrong thing. I also don't think where they ship from has anything to do with not checking values before a part is inserted. Doesn't seem fair to blame a company for an error of the builder.

I've had a few errors here and there from Tayda, usually a missing part...but that's been rare. Nothing like this though. Just in the past two orders I had parts that were wrong. In one order, what should have been MLCC capacitors ended up being a set of flat washers for toggle switches. Label was correct but the bag contained washers instead of caps. And then there's this one...bag says 3k resistors but what's in it is actually 620 ohm resistors.

Only conclusion that I can make is that they changed something about their business. With all the updates to how shipping is handled, something seems a bit askew. Used to be that U.S. orders were shipped out of a warehouse here domestically with some orders being delayed due to parts being shipped from overseas. But many of those orders were processed and shipped really fast. Not the case anymore. Seems virtually everything is now processed and shipped from Thailand...which isn't a problem really if orders are processed accurately.

Don't know what to say really other than that's been my experience lately. Doesn't exactly leave me with a fuzzy feeling. It's one thing if I'm ordering parts for a personal build. I can deal with that. It's another if the parts order is for a batch of pedals I'm building to be sold on Reverb or the like. Not exactly a great scenario. Mistakes happen...I get it. But this just seems to be a bit of a trend.
You are the first person I've heard of having these issues. The real question is why aren't you checking values before you populate and did you learn your lesson🤪

Look sick John. The enclosure is so vibrant and in your classic style. Build is looking fantastic inside as always. How do you like it to your prior collosulus? I built the old version and liked it. Wanda approved build.

Looks Tight Gordo. Where did you get the enclosure done. I know a guy who wanted to get that done and feels like he overpayed from amplifyfun

Man, I thought these all looked great to begin with, but the colors on the new enclosures really pop! In other words, I can see why you did this. Trust me, I've got some old builds I'd like to go back and give the royal treatment.
If it's something you love to play it's totally worth it.

Looking good, Chris!  Is that Clone Theory new?  That enclosure looks killer.
It's not new new, but newer. I built it not to long ago but was not happy with the enclosure and wiring so I decided to strip it down and do it justice. It's a kick ass pedal.

Always bringing the 🔥.  Iíll take a big helping of that Small Clone with a side of that Small Stone.
So easy a caveman could do it 😂

Not one to rest on your laurels is an understatement, I swear you're actually three pedal builders in a trench coat. Sterling work as always dude, love the Clone Theory graphics in particular
Thank you, I'm just in my own little world having fun making noise. That clone theory image was something I really liked and thought it was a really cool take on Mystique.

I'm not one to rest on my laurels. Ever have builds you loved to play but you felt you could do better, you didn't want to settle for less, settle for mediocrity and strip them down, rewire, reimagine and fall in love with them all over again? I'm that guy. Here is a fresh new set of rebuilds.
