Re: Show your pedal guts!

This is my first etched enclosure. I used sodium hydroxide on a heat transfer toner mask. I'm really pleased with all the small details it captured. I still have to spray it with enamel, but I'm nervous about sanding away the etch details. Original image by Andre Masson here

Here's one I boxed today



At 23 x 21 verolayout I thought this one was gonna be hell to box, but it was a breeze.
Having all the wires coming from one side helped alot. :)

This is my third pedal. It is a MagnaVibe clone.
I'm still learning the ropes. My wiring layout is still a little funky, but it will improve.
MagnaVibe clone.
Gut shot of MagnaVibe clone.

This is a DemoTapeFuzz it was my second pedal.
I etched this pedal with muriatic acid.
Wanted that handwritten tape look. next time I will etch the writing too.
The wires are too long but I wasn't going to cut and resolder.
DTF clone. Gut  shot.
D.T.F etched enclosure. Not sure why the lettering photographs purple it is black in person.

Thanks! I did that in Inkscape.  Printed label with 3 clear coat layer over the whole pedal.  I am abusing it now to see how well a printed label will hold up.  I am going through lots of experiments now seeing what's possible.

The cigar box of lost stompbox souls. Some abysmal failures, some abandoned experiments, some good but unboxed stuff

yeah, I have about twenty that will never get boxed. they all worked properly, so no failures, but I didn't care for them at all (due to a failure of design) .

I normally just enjoy other people's builds because you are all quite neat and tidy whereas look mine like 9 Cthulhu babies being smashed by a piece of Swiss cheese.

It's finally come time to share.  I present the Voxtitch.



Sometimes you just want to build that fucking pedal NOW, whether you actually have the proper parts or not.

Dude that looks awesome. May ask how you do a paint job like that? I noticed you did one that looks like flames were on the front too, and would love to make some pedals that have enclosures then the normal single color jobbers.

Thanks! Haveyouseenhim, who hangs around DIYSB and Madbean has an excellent tutorial on paint swirling. It takes a bit to get the hang of but it's a fun process.

Saw this one over on the Madbean Forum. The paint job is spectacular.
All that orange wire should make trouble shooting a breeze.. "Maybe it's the orange one?"
Great looking build though.

Thanks! And yes, if your going to make spaghetti then I suggest you use big bright orange wire to highlight just how messy you can be Trouble shooting be damned.

Hi
I'm new to this group. I just randomly found this site. I have been building and fixing, modifying pedals since the mid 1970's
Here are some guts.
The wha is a Vox847 or 846 I got in a trade. It wasn't working and I fixed it but the old transistors were noisy and the electrolytic cap was leaking foamy stuff.
 I finally decided to rebuild the whole thing. I only re-used the inductor (no it's not a Fazel its a Stack of dimes) I built it "dead bug" style over a ground plane. I used some NTE low gain transistors, Wima polypropylene MKP10 caps, metal film resistors, and Mogami shielded wire. I also added the output buffer circuit as to properly drive a Fuzz.
The other is a "Green Ringer" I threw together on perfboard. and put in an ugly pre used case. I'm not going to use it though I don't like the sound much.. My next thing is to build a Roger Mayer Octavia.
