I'm a bit sloppy with the wiring but always take care around the jacks and business sides of the board. I wire everything from one side so it's easy to flip the board out if I need to make a repair or a mod. Using those plastic standoffs makes it easy to keep the board from floating near the jacks.
Also, Vick's 3PDT pcbs are the bomb.
Crappy phone camera and poor office lighting are to blame for the quality of these pics.
I'm glad how many have already contributed! This is great because there's no need to be ashamed for the way you do your pedals. If it works, it works. We all have different backgrounds and experience. I build pedals for a living so obviously I've got experience but that doesn't mean I do the best job. I do the best job I can do but I've seen some inspiring builders who do an impeccable job. I'm very fond of the way Vince wires his pedals!
top is DAM Ezekiel (|V|ark's layout)
then bottom from left to right HAO Sole Pressure (johnk's layout), EQD Ghost Echo (harald sabro's layout) and Blackout Effectors Mantra Overdrive (miro's layout),
So we have layouts from 4 different guys, lots of different things (number of pots, reverb brick, rotary and toggle switches, board on top of pots or not, different box sizes), but ALWAYS the same floppy wiring :D
Nice Triple Wreck, John and cheers Geiri!.. I still remember my very first build. A Meathead, the wires must of been about 20cm long and just stuffed in the enclosure!. It's great seeing everyone's gutshots, it's a constant learning curve
Anyway, here's a Purple Plexi and a modded Meathead
Yep, green one too... they look nice but of course it depends on the build.
This one I built different than the other centaurs I built 'cause someone always wants one and I just end-up selling mine thinking I'll just build another one later (quicker cash this way) but I just love this one too much to ever consider selling it...
