Vinyl stickers, anyone? I'm not much on swag, but a sticker could be cool.



This worked out pretty well. The dimensions came out right and fit just how they need to. Too bad I reversed the sleeve and tip on the DC jack. Oh well, positive ground fuzz, population: you.



I bought this Pedaltrain thing like 5 weeks ago. I finally attached the Pedal Power to it. I think this is what I will put on there. I'm pretty sure the Flange is broken, though. Meh, no one will notice.

Whoa! This looks awesome dude! Pedalboard looks incredible...

Sign me up for a sticker and a fuzz board! Both are fantastic ideas.

Yesterday's work. 99% perfect etches! I've come a long way....
Now I have to drill them, cut, polish, clean, tin, polish, clean, bag, ship. Wheee!



A newish guitar: a Danelectro Baritone. This has on-board effects! The Chorus, Tremolo and Slap Back sound pretty good. The distortion is "stuck wah" poopiness. I have wanted a Bari for a long time....this one was a really good deal, too!

I wish I had a Baritone guitar. No seriously. I played one into a princeton a while back, and that tone was unreal! Could be mine for just 499, but I couldn't shell it out. Not with baby number two on the way.












See what I just did there. I attempted the theft of Bean's thread with the announcement of my wife's pregnancy.

Brian, do you use the standard toner transfer method for making your pcbs? It's only method I've attempted because I don't need to buy alot of extra stuff, I've never got a perfect board there is always a small mess up.
Pcbs no longer available

for the 3PDT/Jacks board, you could always just use the enclosure mounted DC jack and run wires to the board...

I use a modified process. Sterling Ultra Digital paper, iron and a laminator. This combination gives a very consistent result with practice.

Hey Julien! This is the Build Report where Bean shared the link to those knobs:

It has a little conversation about them over there already ;)

Can you explain a bit more about that second picture? Is that whole thing a fuzz circuit?

I also wanted to put in a word about how awesome baritone guitars are. I'm left-handed, but no one makes lefty baritones, so a year or two ago I ordered one of Warmoth's baritone necks. I Frankensteined it onto a Strat I got for cheap on eBay...one of the best guitar decisions I've ever made.
