Here is my first Madbean build, a boomstick, sounds great.
I kept the design simple :)

Great job! It looks soo clean..The polished aluminum look is really catching my eye plus the sick ass red MXR style knobs.

Thanks for all the kind words.  :)
Painting boxes takes so much time, and waterslide decal is difficult to work with.
With a Polished aluminium-box and permanent-marker with some colorful knobs  you'll can complete the whole build in hours instead of days :)

This is my first build with PCB-mounted pots, it's space saving and makes pedal clean inside.
If you look closely at the electrolytic cap you can see it's a bit messed up. (only cosmetic)
I had to use a file to trim the PCB a bit to make it fit in the box :)

That box looks pretty slick, man.  You polish that yourself?

Cool, nice work.  I dig the polished enclosure as well.  Just be careful though...the oils from your hands can smudge a standard sharpie if your not careful unless you clear coat it.  I found this out once  ::)
