A rarity, new build!
« on: February 16, 2021, 11:11:00 AM »
3 in fact.  Passive DI boxes, made for a friend who still manages to persuade me or Juansolo to make him interesting things.
He was getting all 3, but to test I had to get my cousin's Fender monitor/PA thing out of my garage, and restore it a little, its been there 6 years.  After that work, I'm keeping one, and it sounds great with bass into the mic input.

This was the last of the envirotex, and the resin was starting to go off, tiny crystals were appearing in the resin, luckily didnt affect the finish too much.  Juansolo did the decal.



Here's a video, not mine.

Nice! Cost wise, how does it compare to just buying a premade one like this for example?

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

I couldn't get the transformers for a sensible price in the UK, but Phil, who I made them for lives in the US, and they were affordable, he sent them over.  I'll be sending back to him too, he won't be back over here for a while yet.
