Hammond and Heeger both make nice ones.

Hey man, thanks for the heads up on Heeger enclosures, I've never seen them before. I looked them up on Mouser and sadly the slanted enclosure big enough for a Ring Stinger qualifies for Mouser's "Random Punch In The Balls" delivery upcharge, boosting the shipping on my current cart from 0.00 to 44.15.

So that'll be a "No", then. Do you know another supplier? I'd love to build a slanted Ring Stinger but the only Hammond boxes it would fit into are 10 inches wide, which seems a touch ridonkulous even for such a big pedal...

That.is.awesome!
Love the unicorn puke!

Thanks man, I told you I'd get it finished in time!

That's terrible about the Mouser overseas shipping rate, terrible...I'm in the States and usually use them for most things and Smallbear for most all else. iProjectbox carries Heeger and a lot of plastic enclosures used in typical synth-diy projects (like Serpac and Pactec) but ...no hammond, which is weird.

Does the Hammond site have direct ordering? hammondmfg.com I think

The RKITB upcharge only rears its ugly head on rare occasions, and fortunately most of the Hammond stuff is fine, even the big stuff. I got a slanted Hammond enclosure 0.5" narrower than the Heeger from Mouser with no upcharge, so go figure  ???
The annoying thing is that it's that 0.5" makes it too narrow for the Ring Stinger project! I think mine will eventually be in a 1550G like everyone else's

Digging that Big Cheese clone BTW

I shortened "random punch in the balls" to RKITB. Clearly a punch became a kick. And clearly all that wiring fried my brain :)

Love it man, the name and finish in that enclosure is so cool.  Epic ribbon cable spaghetti in the guts too...  8)

Awesome build.  I want to do one of these, but I missed out on the fabbed boards. I do have Lacesensor's single side layout ready for transfer, and a big piece of copper. I be scared, tho.:o
Looks intimidating.

Not to discourage the DIY spirit, but you could always get one from Haberdasher- the last thing you'd want is to end up troubleshooting one of these with questionable traces...
As a bonus, you'd have plenty of copper board for all the awesome projects recently culled (RIP La Vache).

Ah, who am I kidding? Live the dream, etch the monster and take your place amongst the DIY gods  ;D
