The Crossroads - OCD clone
« on: May 01, 2020, 03:19:25 AM »
Gudday all, here's The Crossroads, a gift build for a friend I've known for 27 years or so.  He happens to run a guitar shop called "Crossroads Music", so I thought I'd use the artwork on the side of his building (which was the artwork for Samick guitar ads back in the early 90's) on the pedal.  Looks a bit off center, but I didn't want the dude's head covered by a knob.

The PCB is one I got from someone here, I think, ages ago.  It's a mix of versions, just a couple of cap/resistor swaps.  The box is a yellow Tayda powdercoat with black etching primer and datapol sticker on top.  This is the last of the confusing yellow/black enclosures!

Yeah, I didn't tell him it was coming.  Think he was nicely surprised.

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