boomstick
« on: December 02, 2010, 02:21:21 PM »



I couldn't wait for the boomstick fabbed pcbs to come so I etched my own. I recommend everybody try this one out especially when the new pcbs come in. I had so much fun jamming on it. It nails the ac/dc sound. really great for garage rock, punk rock, classic rock etc. I had been using an electra(cot 50/trotsky/etc) kind of circuit for that sound but this is alot better. much more open and less stuffy.

The best part too is the low gain settings sound amazing. They pretty much sound like a sho with all the glassy sparkle and woody attack, I was really surprised by the low gain.

The tone control is really excellent. It is my favorite 1 knob tone controls of all my builds/pedals.

I hate trying to fit graphics on pedals  so many times they just don't fit right. maybe I should have done all three knobs across the top?

Very cool mike. This is something I've got to work on is finishing them. I've just about given in to the prepainted Hammond's. Peace. J.J.B.
