Cherry Bomb
« on: February 16, 2012, 03:36:50 AM »
Finally finished my Turretboard Cherrybomb. Wrapped the enclosure in Tolex.. Not an easy task! Cut out a little piece of pickguard that might get some labeling in future. All so I may change the transistors later. Right know its sound awesome with gain set at 10! but below that its more like clean boost.

F*CKIN' AWESOME! Nice turretboard action you got there! ;) Seems difficult, though.. I've never tried a turretboard build.. And the tolex.. It's the first time I see a pedal wrapped in tolex.

Congrats on your build, man!  ;D

Wow, VERY cool build there, man.
fwiw, my pcb cherry bomb is the same way.  clean boost all the way to the end and then straight to high gain.  It sounds great, but there isn't any middle ground.  One day I might try a 5kb or 5kc for the gain control and see what that does.

I'm very happy you like it. It sure was is fun to make turretboard-layout and stuff it full with mojo!
I actually have a Yellow-shark on turretboard all wired up but it sounds nothing like it should right now, I might make a third attempt to fix it this weekend.

As for the Tolex, it was really hard to make the corners look good, but I will keep trying since I had to buy
1m x 1.2m :D

hey gtr2, just got 5 of your 3pdt-boards in the mail today, they look really, really good! And that was some fast shipping!!!

DAMN, that looks good! I really like the Overdriver circuit too. I use it to gain/fuzz up my amp's overdrive for really raunchy sounds.
