2015 all over again
« on: January 19, 2016, 02:39:36 AM »
I wan't to do one of these threads too. ;D Going from newest to oldest (I think):

Opamp Muff



Arcadiator





Krypton Phasor





BeeBaa & Orphan Fuzz





Feta Complis





Rangemaster







Afterlife



Kingslayer II & Purple Plexi




I'm pretty sure I'm missing one build from that list, but can't figure out what it is. :D

Thanks for posting this. You had a good year man. I daresay there is a progression of skill showing here. Really nice work.

Thanks! I'm still not satisfied how the wiring looks, but I'm guessing that's the downside on using stranded wire. Can't get straight lines like with solid core.

Discovering how easy Envirotex is to use (if you are patient enough) is probably the best thing that happened to my pedal building ever.  ;D

You've got some great stuff right there. I think your wiring is not bad at all, especially on the muff. Don't try to compare yourself to juan or Lee, we all feel inadequate compared to them ;P

Funny story about Envirotex: I had an enclosure in the oven (imagine a really expensive up to 1500C kind of oven) and the ET dropped through one of the taped holes and glued the whole thing to the oven. I managed to get the enclosure off and burned the epoxy out. 600C will do, fyi. But for a moment, I thought I ruined the damn thing.  ::)
I build pedals to hide my lousy playing.

That's about when you get rid of any personally identifiable marks, carefully slide around the corner, and run like hell.
