The Kingslayer
« on: March 10, 2013, 07:47:20 AM »
Just an awesome sounding pedal.  Tricky to get in to a 1590B with a battery, but I managed it.  This is a pedal I made for a friend originally called the "Christmas Kingslayer".  I put it in a bear box, and the offboard wiring was just a mess.  There was just way too much wiring for that box.  I got him to give it back to me for the weekend, and I spent pretty much the whole day yesterday measuring, drilling, measuring, cutting, measuring soldering etc.  I'm much happier with the guts, it feel really solid now.

I got a nice jade green box for another one, sounds so good I have to have one too.

Outstanding! Love the texture paint and faceplate.
No matter where you go, there I am. Watching you.

That's dedication to the art for sure
Pedal building is like the opposite of sex.  All the fun stuff happens before you get in the box.

I really like the label placements.

It wasn't easy getting a battery in there. I'm really pleased I was able to do it.  The second one was much easier to drill since I knew where to put everything.  I'm really getting the hang of the etched plates,  totally copied from Brian's stuff obviously, but its a technique I seem to be able to pull off.
