I predict a sudden increase in black copper clad sales.

Looks great.
Will the VFE build docs go up when the Pcbs go on sale?
Thanks

They look great.  I've never made a faceplate is that etched on copper?

Yup, etched on black copper clad. After I took this pic I hit them with one coat of clear gloss. That prevents oxidation on the copper and also helps deepen the black some.

Excellent I really must try that at some point.

Pale Horse completed. I kludged one component on there (10uF NP).

Correct. There's quite a bit going on in the switching board.

Looks really interesting.  Can't wait for these to go live.

Here's the Alpha Dog. For this one I moved the footswitch lower and did a wired DC Jack instead of PCB mounted. This is the method I prefer so I will probably do the rest of my builds this way.

Looks great! Do these boards fit in a B box? Looks like 125B but not positive...

When are these going to go on sale? It says April 29th and I've been waiting all day and they are not up yet? I even checked at midnight last night; because I was so excited. Not complaining, I just have an itch for some new awesome builds.

I'm still working on the documentation but I'm more than half-way done. I'll do my best to get everything up by tonight but it may end up being tomorrow.

That ground pour is very distinctive :)

Although the faceplate is slightly mis-aligned, Brian :(
