Build Report: DustBunny in unnecessarily large enclosure
« on: June 17, 2020, 03:31:58 PM »
Hi everyone!

Been a long time since I built a guitar pedal but I had a fuzzy itch I had to scratch. Just finished up on this DustBunny. Really enjoyed it and happy with how it sounds! I just used all BC108's. I had grand plans of doing a full shootout of transistor combos but it sounds good and the lid is on so I don't imagine myself ever getting around to that!

Brutal.  Nice job!  Stuffing into 1590A's is highly over rated :-)

Video nails it.

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

Nice, just finishing one off myself.
What transistors did you use?

Very cool! I'll echo Gordo, 1590a is more trouble than it's worth in my opinion. I love the way you did the faceplate.

Nice video, I suspect that is a cool tele custom hiding behind the pedal there.

Faceplate and the knobs are killer! I do enjoy the challenge of 1590a builds, but huge enclosures are also tons of fun. Nice work!

Thank you kind sir. Well spotted. Would you believe that it is a Tele Custom that I went to huge lengths to have a new pickguard made for (I'm left handed) in tortoiseshell, with a single-coil cutout where the humbucker used to be...
