Red5 - dual channel BSIABII w/contour.
« on: October 12, 2017, 06:39:18 AM »
Gudday all.

Here's Red5, a BSIABII with contour and dual channels.  This is the enclosure previously known as  "Razorback".  As a drive it just wasn't doing it for me, but more importantly the clear coat on it was rubbish and kept flaking along the edges, even after a quick rough resand and respray with better stuff.

Gain A is a 250k pot as that's what I had lying around, and Gain B is the stock 500k.  Decided to just go with an on/off LED for the gain switch indicator.  Running A flat out isn't all that different to B flat out, but it adds another level of usefulness to the pedal when you drop the gain back.  I'm liking this one a lot.

I noticed that the Gain A/B and Standing By labels aren't aligned horizontally, dammit!  Wouldn't have minded the Gain labels lower either...

Way cool. Perfect knob matching, too!

Nice! I like the "Standing by" bypass switch. The X-wing graphic is well designed.

Pedal building is like the opposite of sex.  All the fun stuff happens before you get in the box.

Thanks everyone.  I wish I could say I did the graphic, but I just lifted it from google...
