Yellow Shark

This one is SWEEEE-EAT! I really like the mellow, darkish tone of this thing. It could easily find a place beside my Timmy clone... I relabelled the knob titles to something appropriate to a Bee.



And the Guts.

I like the graphics a lot. I have a tendency to put a lot of cartoons on my builds, too :)
I own madbeanpedals (duh). I am part owner of Function F(X).

Thanks guys, it's not that great of a pic, but it does the job I guess.

Funny thing about the cartoon - I just search for Bee cartoons on Google images and found this one... Used a vector program that traced the image and voila!

The process for my decals is to create the art work - I use a mac and so I used inkscape for this one. Then I went to a local sign shop that I have print me a batch of decals to use on my pedals. I get 6-8 at a time to make it worth the cost of printing. They use clear vinyl to print on, it's like a big clear sticker, and they use foils for printing. It's pretty cool actually. The neat thing is that they can print as many colours as they have foils for, but I've only ever used white or black - and that's neat because not many printers can print white. They also use a computerized cutting machine to cut them all out for me.

So back in the man-cave I spray a light coating of water with a hint of baby shampoo onto the enclosure (pre drilled and finished, cleaned with rubbing alcohol) and the sticky side of the decal. Then I lay it on and slide it around till it's in the right spot. I use a squeegee or small scraper to press the water out, and paper towel to dry it all up. Let it sit for a while to truly dry and adhere to the encolsure. Then it's clear coating time!

That's pretty cool, Jacob.  Good work!
If you don't mind me asking, how much does set you back to get 6-8 decals made at your local print shop?

Excellent job!  I finished mine just recently and really like it . . . except I'd love to be able to tweak a bit more gain out of it --- Anyone have any suggestions?  I know it's a touch sensitive low gainer but mine doesn't quite seem to have as much gain as some of the vids I've watched on YouTube.  Plenty of volume on tap and the nature control works well, though.

Here's mine:

I like that Pedal Enclosures enclosure...

I felt like I was working for the department of redundancy department for a second there.

HAH! 

Definitely a great enclosure!  Where'd you find that, Fastocker?

Look at Pedalenclosures making comments about the finish on pedal enclosures from pedalenclosures in a forum designed to show off people's finished pedal enclosures. Cool.
