Zombii (AKA Fuzz Lightyear)
« on: July 09, 2010, 09:45:32 PM »
I don't know if I spent more time building it or thinking of a way to fit it all in a 1590 but here is my zombii. I know, it would have been easier if I made it horizontal and a LOT easier if I didn't want to put a battery in there. Honestly, I never use batteries either but It just seemed like a matter of pride. In fact, I learned the hard way how much harder it is to cram everything in with solid core wire and had to replace about half the wires since they just kept breaking and fighting me. I'll be waiting for the time when I need only my fuzz pedal and can just pop it off the board and it'll all be worth it. I've decided to call it the Fuzz Lightyear and have a design laid out (http://www.madbeanpedals.com/forum/index.php?topic=226.0) but am sorta stuck until I can figure out how to underprint my decal paper or something. I ordered the "blem" enclosures from pedal parts plus. Its a free paint job but it seems to chip pretty easy but I figure I'd just mess them up eventually anyways.

I like that configuration, myself. I don't like the horizontal zVex style so much.

For dressing it up, I think it would look super cool to get some white paint, put it on a brush and start flicking it on the enclosure, Jackson Pollock-style  :)

Then again, 'Fuzz Lightyear' is a killer name for a pedal!

UPDATE:

This is the last of the three original pedals that I refinished and I have to say that I think this is definitely one of my favorites. I've had the design done for a while but ran into trouble since the clear decals really need a white background to look right.

So I spray painted it blue, masked the sides, and then painted it white. What a pain to get back in the enclosure though!

Dude! I love it. What a great name. And the finish looks awesome, I wouldn't worry about a thing.

Sorry to steal your thunder man. I'm sure yours will be killer though. I really like all the other pedals in your pixar series. I think your Wall-e even made my girlfriend excited even though she doesn't even know what pedals do.
