Boom Boom and Kompromat
« on: October 12, 2021, 09:33:44 AM »
Really hope this formats the pictures smaller than the preview cause I got no clue how to redo them on Imgur.
Edit after pressing preview: sorry for the massive pictures. Can you specify size in the (IMG) tags like with HTML?
Edit edit: thanks EBK!

Anyway, two recent builds following moving house. I should have really been doing different things so, pedals got made. The Brassmaster is probably one of my favourite fuzzes, glorious sound. Anyone on the fence, go buy one. Not on the fence? Buy another. Artwork was a Google-find and currently using the last of my waterslide stuff up. Some idiot broke into my house and soldered 4x 100KB pots to it so had to redo them which is always a laugh having the finesse of Bigfoot with boxing gloves on.

Fantastic board as ever 'Bean!



Next up, the Kompromat. I've had a handful of CA3080s for a few years and I can never remember why I buy them so this was perfect timing being released. Recently gotten into single coils after a stupidly long time without them (if someone could just hop back in time 10 years and punch me in the nuts and yell "TELE" at me that would be great, thanks), and this thing sounds wonderful. Reused a crappy 3PDT which I'm glad about as I don't see myself knocking it off much.

Yes, you can specify size in an inage tag, for example, like this:
Code: [Select]
[img width=480]image_url.png[/img]
Imgur also has some cool resizing shortcuts.  Try modifying the URL by simply adding a lowercase m, l, or h (for medium, large, or huge) at the end of the filename just before the dot.  For example, imagename.jpg becomes imagenamel.jpg

Nice builds!  I really need a BoomBoom.  I have built two Brassmasters in the past, but I gave one as a gift and sold the other.  It has a fun voice.

Thanks for that! When I went back to add the width and height as you'd said, they were there waiting :D

Brilliant! The compís artwork in particular is just awesome.

And yeah, TeleÖ itís pretty much all you need. Just make sure itís shielded.
