Build Reports / Osmium (Dragon Armor/Tight Metal)
« on: March 28, 2014, 11:08:19 AM »
This is a build using an smd PCB from chuckbuick based on the tight metal pedal.  He was kind enough to send me a prototype to check out.

And I gotta say, layouts don't get much better than this.  It was a breeze to solder, but didn't work at first. 
Turns out I soldered a diode in backwards.  Once it was turned around, it fired right up.

This is actually the second shot at powder coating this enclosure.  The first time around, the powdercoat came out great, but I had some laser issues. 
So, stripped it down and recoated.  Try to ignore the lint.  ;-)

Still waiting for better knobs to come in, but I wanted to get this posted before I leave for vacation tomorrow. 
(At least I didn't drop this one on the way into the house like a couple of others.)

Didn't screw the back in for the gut shot...

BTW, this is my first build report, but not my first pedal.  I have a few "phases" of building, and this one is part of phase four- smd pcb layouts created by others.

This one is definitely a keeper!  More reports to come!

General Questions / No knob egghead?
« on: January 23, 2013, 08:45:41 PM »
I was thinking of building an egg head without knobs, just internal trim pots.

I tend to set and forget the other OD/boost boxes I've built but wondering if I might be short changing myself with this one if I omit knobs.

Opinions?  Not much in the way of risk since I can switch easily but would have to order pots and wait...
