OcJAvia (Retrograde)
« on: June 03, 2020, 03:02:12 PM »
This is my first completed madbean project. I had a little trouble getting the jacks to fit around the stomp switch but not too bad.

I made this as a gift for my guitar teacher. His initials are JA, so that's why it's an "ocJAvia," and that's his face on the pedal. I havent seen him in person in 80 something days, but was able to drop this off to him today. He was thrilled!

Nice build.  Cool graphics.

Going to build one of these when the xfmr finally arrives in late July...

Nice job. That's a very kind gift also.
Pedal building is like the opposite of sex.  All the fun stuff happens before you get in the box.

That turned out great, who wouldn't want their face on a pedal? I wish I had someone else to build a pedal for. There is one guy at work but he's a bass player that keeps things super simple. I love seeing posts like this, musicians giving music gifts to other musicians
