Will you miss Ronaldo when he comes back home?

God yeah.  I love Messi but Ronaldo has already shown how good he can be in the Premier League, I'd have him back in a heart beat!

Aqueduct Business Park near Brabyns Park. Off the beaten track a bit about a mile down a dirt road.

I used to go through Romiley on my way to work though, and also spent plenty of my day there because I was in LiquiBox several times a week.

Glad at least you won't miss Mourinho when -fingers crossed- he comes home . Hopefully this won't put me straight in Mark's naughty list...!

Anyways, I'm Alex in London, AV tech by day and guitarist and self taught DIYer by night/days off.

I'm afraid that Mourinho after being kicked... I mean.... he leaves Madrid :P will go to Portugal national, but anyway, you are more than welcome to  take him (with Ronaldo as a pack) back to England anytime you want :P

I must have been misunderstood, home for Mourinho is non else but Stamford Bridge, and he'll hopefully never have any business to do with Old Trafford!

But you are right, with the top job in German football now gone I wouldn't be surprised if he tries his hand on the international level next.

I know where you mean, just behind the Station, funnily enough me and some mates used to share a house on Station Road/Brabyns Brow (a small one, not one of the huge ones) years ago, small world eh?

I fear now that Guardiola has gone to Bayern that Mourinho may be headed to the blue side of Manchester.  I can't see Ferguson leaving any time soon, Mourinho looks nailed on to leave Real and Mancini look like getting the sack if he doesn't win the league again.  Of course if no-one else wants him he's always welcome at Stockport County!

Names Vince, I'm not so much a pedal enthusiast or a big user of pedals but I love guitars and amps and of course playing them. I'm more addicted to the buzz of creating something. building it and that nervous first click and it's ALIVE! ... So I could build the same pedal over and over just for that buzz..

Gibson's and Marshall's

 Hey all!
I am from San Francisco, been playing guitar since the early 80's - moved to Texas in the early 90's!
I am pretty new to the pedal building scene, have built about a dozen pedals so far, and I am loving the Vero! Some stuff I have found PCB is better but the vero is great for the basic to middle ground pedals!
Seems like I learn more and more from each build and now I can tackle even the complicated builds!
I am hoping to learn how to take a schematic to vero on my own and I can sort of see how it is done now but, as of yet I have not taken the big step to transfer a schematic to vero  LOL

TY |v|ark and Miro for everything here on this great site!

Mike B.
Hey, everyone.  I'm Mike from Texas.  I work in a museum during the day, build pedals at night, and I spend a lot of weekends playing with my band co-pilot (www.leavingtheground.com).  I don't post that often on this site, but I read it and use it everyday. I hope to finally finish a pedal build before someone else so that I can tell Mark and Miro to tag it first.  :)

Heath here :)

My posts on the tagboardeffects page have been under "AngryNiceGuy" (cause it's a Google account I had handy and I'm lazy).

I'm currently in Texas, USA.

I'm a Singer/Songwriter/Guitarist/Guitar Builder.  I initially intended to sell the guitars I built, but I tend to get attached to them, so I'm swimming in about 28 of them at the moment.  

So, I realized if I kept putting them together/buying them to customize, I was going to have to start sleeping on them.  As it is, if I don't turn on the lights at night, I'll trip all over them :/  So pedal building has been a welcome change as they take up less space!  I thought it would be cheaper too, but I've turned into a junkie.

I've built around 20 circuits from Mark and Miro alone, plus a few more from elsewhere.  I actually suck at it, but it's fun.  Miro has his Jar of Horrors... I have my Bag of Broken Dreams which contains not ONE, but TWO failed Catalinbread Galileo clone-attempts in addition to several other fail-trophies.

Current favorite http://tagboardeffects.blogspot.com build is the Vox Repeat Percussion.  First build was the Heartthrob Tremolo.  

Oh, yeah, and I Admin RedHat servers for a living.  Yay me.

I´m from Sweden and have been into pedals deeply since the late 90´s, primarily by collecting vintage Boss pedals.
Have worked professionally as a guitar technician in the 90´s so I´ve always been into rudimentary electronics a long time. Began building stomp boxes around five years ago, and have built too many since then…
Experimental fuzzes and noise pedals is what I like most.
Plays guitar in a rock band and in a Psychedelic/Kraut band too, the later is what I really like to do…
