Great job, looks insanely good... I think you need a couple more wires running throught the inside though ;) J/k, awesome job man.

Dude this is incredible. I'm still trying to wrap my head around it all! Any way you can make a sound sample with some of the extra mods you've included?

Sound Sample?

this... I have never done. So, at some point maybe I'll get around to making one. Wish me luck on that. I am always afraid of posting something that sound like pure junk, not because of the gear, but because of what the recording is being played through.

Any suggestions on how to do this and have a nice signal? By the way, I have no mixer, but do have a DBX mini-pre that might do the job. Got some good mics too. Why I never use them, I'll never know!

Lemme try to explain the chain here.

Input - On/Off - I/II - Output

Each Sunking has a toggled bypass which enables the use of its buffer (wired just like a Klon).

Each Sunking is then fed to a 3 prong Switchcraft Jack, used as a TRS Loop (Channel Insert for sound engineers), of which is engage via its own True Bypass Toggle Switch. After that, it comes back to the I/II switch.

The I/II switch has both channels wired in parallel, with the main On/Off feeding the center lugs.

The relay controls the color of the I/II LED indicator and gives you a visual confirmation of which Sunking you are engaging (I=Red, II=Green), and its power leg is wired to the 3rd pole of the I/II 3PDT switch

No magic here... just some very useful switching capabilities.

Lemme see if I can get something recorded for you guys in the next couple of days. I can't guarantee anything, but I will try. I need to overcome this demon anywayz!

My Twin is in major need of some preamp tubes. I have tons of them, but need to weed out some qualifying candidates. That project is on the docket for today.

Cleaned up some of the wires that I was not comfortable with. After some online investigation, the TL072 is supposedly a better IC than the 4558's, so I put the back in. I think I am glad I did. Sounds a bit warmer. Also, tried the bypassed tone compared to the engaged clean setting with tone at 12 oclock. The sound is exactly the same. I'm so happy with this build. I'm having trouble putting my guitar down. Thanx madbean!

That is the most bad ass pedal I have ever seen.  Id love to hear some clips.

Thanks again for the continued compliments.
Its nice to see my idea come to reality. This turned out way, way nicer than I had envisioned it!
This seems to be the case with most of the ideas I come up with for some reason.
Any rate, thx everybody!
