Chaos Agent (horizontal layout)
« on: October 16, 2022, 08:07:45 PM »
This is my build of the Chaos Agent.  I am happy to be able to post a working build after my last setback (still debugging that Naughty Fish).  I may add some more paint pen to the enclosure eventually if I can think of a name or anything to draw.




Jimilee inspired me with his recent builds to use a white pen on this.

I just got tired of the the whole decal process for a a while, and I donít want to take the time to do it.  Looks fantastic!

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

It's quite freeing, tossing fancy labeling out of the way (this build is for me to play around with anyway).  I had this candy teal enclosure for quite awhile, not knowing what to do with it.  I didn't want to mess it up poorly applied clear coat.  Paint markers were the answer I didn't know I was looking for. Sometimes simplicity is inspiring.   ;D

I reserve the right to change my mind on this design (with acrylic paint pens, it is easy), but I added a name, and I will see if it grows on me.

I like that a lot.  Plus the color on the box is stupid pretty.  I write like a 4 year old so my lettering leaves a LOT to be desired.  You've even got your sig logo in there, very nice.

Thanks!
The box is candy teal from smallbear, by the way.  I don't know if they'll ever get them back in stock.

For posterity (and in case I lose my notes):
I used 2N2222A transistors (different from the ones in the original gut shot).  They measured:
Q1 = 96
Q2 = 145
Q3 = 210

I like using google notes or sheets for an extra level of backup for my notes. Free and will "always" be there. Plus. I lose stuff a ton lol.

Damn, that thing looks super clean! The hand-drawn lettering really matches the vibe of the originals, and the white paint really pops against that beautiful teal enclosure. I wish my handwriting was half as good as yours! Excellent work!

Thanks!  That writing took lots of touch-up and revision.  It is easy to correct/tweak acrylic paint pen with either alcohol or a hobby knife.
