1590a debut... Lavache!
« on: June 24, 2012, 09:45:55 PM »

I've been watching you guys do these teeny things for a while now, so with certain satisfaction I can now present my debut 1590a build...  Lavache! :)



Woo... these things are tiny! :o

!! You fit two switches *underneath* the perf? What's your secret (or rather, what switches did you use)? I can't get switches under a board in any enclosure shorter than a 125B usually.

I'd be careful if you invited anyone around, they might pinch that! Seriously mean lookin' little pedal there. Are those Smallbear knobs?

Thanks guys! Kind words :)  These things are fun... I can see why some dudes get addicted to the 1590as! 

!! You fit two switches *underneath* the perf? What's your secret (or rather, what switches did you use)?
Ha, thanks Jon... well if u really want to know, one was from Futurlec and one from Ebay I think, theyre just normal sized ones... I put a layer of foam tape under the perfboard and its sitting on top of the switches, all pretty tight but with the electro caps lying flat it, fits ok

Are those Smallbear knobs?
Alan, the knobs are from http://www.surplus-electronics-sales.com :)

I've seen SHO's done in PTP in 1590A's, I wonder how much of a bird's nest a true-point-to-point LaVache would be in a 1590A...

That looks stunning!!! The jacks look very close though, don't they touch each other when plugged in?

Go for it!   Very do-able I reckon, not many more parts, and such a nice overdrive...

Thanks man, and agreed... they are very close!!!  :o ;)
I bent the earth lugs so I could get squeeze em together like that.  Don't know how I'm gonna handle a big enclosure like a BB now, I'll prolly feel agoraphobic  ;D

Congrats on fitting it in! The enclosure is gorgeous too!
I plan on building a PTP red llama in a 1590a, it takes a lot of time...

I think it helps that you only used the outside nut, too.

I mean to say, too, that the graphic is outstanding. Is the brushing on the top painted, or part of the decal with the lettering?

Thanks guys!  ;D

Yes I was thinking about that after I replied... I only used one nut, a star washer and flat washer wth the toggles... same sort of thing with the stomp switch I removed the 2nd nut to keep it low in the enclosure

Thanks man... Painted by brush with acrylic art paint. Lettering is how I usually do it, laser printed onto waterslide transer paper, cut out and applied after the first clear coat... then left to dry overnight, with two clearcoats on top to finish.  :)
