JMK Test Rig
« on: July 23, 2020, 01:48:19 PM »
Finally built myself a proper test rig after years of using a little makeshift bypass box. The JMK Test Rig is great. The built-in probe and headphone output are going to be very useful.

Let's look past the weird way the test leads double back on top of the board and proceed through holes that look a lot like they were meant for in/out jacks that didn't fit with how the board was placed (shh). I hope to replace this with a speaker terminal connection block and a banana jack for the probe, but we'll see if that really happens.

Instead, let's focus on how I used a salvaged enclosure and filled a huge hole with JB Weld (you almost can't tell).

Also worth noting is the masochistic decision to replace the bypass toggle with a stomp switch, necessitating all that extra wiring (I sometimes like to test a circuit on my board with other pedals and stomp it on/off, etc.)

Thanks! Splatter is my go-to and lately I've been fond of these softer colours.

Thanks! I don't doubt it! A great circuit, to be sure.
