"... to keep my mind, you know, uh, limber."

Inspired by jimilee, I went back after my first attempt at a vero build - an Emanating Fist Black Acid. This guy was completed well before the the virus came through, but only boxed it up recently. Found out I didn't flip the cuts when I should have, but flipped the components. Attempt number two worked on the first try! Graphics were black with the hope they would be visible at only the right angle. Turns out that angle doesn't exist. But an all black pedal that's called Black Acid seems fitting. Knobs are incoming from LMS.

Sonically the Black Acid is different approach to the D*A*M Meathead, using drive, fuzz, and volume controls. Works fantastic with lower tunings, definitely right onto the board next to my Green Russian.

I felt a disturbance in the force....Most excellent! I download the layout, reverse it and print it out, that way, there’s not a whole lot of thinking when making the cuts and jumpers.

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

Haha, thanks Jimi! That's probably a good way to go about it. I've got 3 vero boards I started today, but I'll probably try that route with the next set

The black on black gives it an underground market/redacted information vibe. It adds to the mystique!
