Unsurpassed Gas, Brown Sound In A Box
« on: November 16, 2014, 08:42:09 AM »
Built this for my uncle. He is a beast on the guitar and likes Van Halen, so this is  a no-brainer. It is based off of the Wampler Pinnacle Distortion, and this thing rocks! With the Tone and Contour knobs, as well as the Vintage/Modern toggle, there is an incredible array of tones at disposal. I'm glad that you get multiple boards with OSHPark because I need to build me one next!

The paint job has the Van Halen stripes, but the paint wrinkled up on me. I tweaked the VH logo to get my uncle's initials.

Hey Chris, Fantastic layout. Is this a shared project on OSH Park?  Steve.

Looks super, I'd also be keen if it's a shared layout or if I could buy a pcb somewhere.  8)

WGC, yeah, those stripes were a little more involved than I initially thought, but they turned out pretty good.

Steve & Cooder, I will probably share the OSHPark files after I tweak the design a bit. If you notice in the gutshot, I didn't take into consideration how big those 1u box caps were. After a slight redesign, I will share though.

Nice build! I like the adapted logo.
...and then of course I've got this terrible pain in all the diodes down my left hand side...

I sent a PM as well, but wanted to publicly say Thanks for this board on OshPark.  Finished my first one yesterday, and it went together flawlessly.

Regards,
Michael
