First two Madbean -builds
« on: January 30, 2015, 05:06:04 AM »
Hey!

Got my first two Madbean -builds ready.

Smoothie:


Basic build, nothing special here. First time I ever used decal. Turned out pretty good.

Zero Point Mini with little bit of modifications:


Added footswitch for ring and a potentiometer to modify the feedback resistor. It can go from very neutral delay to oscillating weirdness. You can also plug in a expression pedal to control the feedback, haven't tried that out yet. This one is built to a EHX Enigma Q-balls -enclosure, first time ever there was plenty of room inside..

No gutshots, these didn't turn out so pretty.

Thanks a lot! Next project is going to be some kind of dual overdrive/distortion. I've been thinking about Kingslayer and Sparkplug or Cherrybomb in one enclosure.

Nice work! I've got a mood ring and ZP micro sitting around, maybe that's what I'll do with them!

First builds?  Wow  :o

Fantastic job.  Love them both. The "MXR-esque" Smoothie is great.

Thanks all! Actually these are not my first builds, just first builds from the Madbean -catalog. Done couple pedal builds from GGG previously and worked as a amp tech, so soldering and all is familiar.  :)

Great job on the builds. Very clean Smoothie and a cool paint technique on the Zero Point.

Why does the ZPM remind me of fight club? I might need some sleep. Nice work man, and welcome
