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

Reminds me of the time someone spilled bong water on my Vestax or Vesta Fire 4 track.

This is freak'n cool. Thanks for sharing.

I wish I could hear it through a cleaner amp, not digging that Orange.  I also find it interesting how they're mixing their band branding with the project, pretty ingenious.

That is something else! I'll definitely have to dive into this later on.

I was looking at this and trying to find some recommendations for 3d printing services in the UK.

It'd be nice to use up some of the dozens of tape heads I have that I've no recollection of buying...

My mates over your side of the pond have recommended 3dpeople —quality for the money can't beaten, they say.

This is epic! I'd definitely be willing to attempt it if I ever decide to get a 3D Printer.

I think I'm going to have a go at this. I'm going to order PCBs from JLC, so I'll have at least 5 boards of each (there are two different PCBs for this project). If anybody else wants a set, let me know. I might be able to print some extra enclosures as well.

EDIT: after reading the entire build guide, I am having serious second thoughts.  ;D  I might give this a couple days of thinking, and then I'll post again.
