MBP Hipster
« on: June 11, 2020, 06:51:13 PM »
Let me start off by saying that for the longest time I wouldn't buy this board because of what it's called. Im Gen X so "hipster" is a bad word to me. Lol!
Then I realized that I could build a Germanium Fuzz Face with this board into a 1590a box. Neat! I've really been getting into these small builds.
2.2uf film cap. I had to put the 2 electrolytics on the back side of the PCB and fit the board so they would be in between the two 1/4" jacks, which meant that I also had to invert the board. I could have used another pot as a blend control for the 2 input caps, that would have given me more room to mount the board the correct way.

Nice job getting it all in there.

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