Greasy Mullet (Zendrive)
« on: February 27, 2014, 04:44:36 PM »
A friend asked me to build a zen for him, this was the result. I left it in my oven for too long, so the embossing effect i was going for was ruined, not happy with finish but he is getting it for free  ;)

The circuit is a stock zen. The 3pdt pcb is a switchable buffer wired for buffer only. I used a dual opamp with the extra opamp terminated, just because i have lots of extra duals :)

Nice build. The Lego construction worker was a nice touch

That's amazing!  How did you achieve the raised lettering and graphic?

Could've put a lego surgeon in there. It's tidy enough inside for an operating room. Just outstanding work - great layouts and execution.

The switching board is almost as big as the Zen board!

Very tidy work!

That's about as clean as it gets.  Great graphics, too.

Nice inside and out. I'd also like to know how you achieved those raised letters.

Lego Peeps or GTFO.

Seriously though, this pedal is insane. Amazing job.

Thanks for the compliements fellas :)

The switching board is almost as big as the Zen board!

Their are a couple of extra components that normally wouldn't be used, to properly terminate the floating opamp.

That's amazing!  How did you achieve the raised lettering and graphic?

I didn't get it quite right this time, so it normally looks better. I have a vinyl cutter that i layer the same design over about 6 times, the power coat over it. its a tedious process that you have to lower and extend your cure time for the power to prevent the vinyl from melting, like it did here :)
