    Starting my first build today. PCB and all resistors, caps, ICs, transistors, jacks and pots purchased and ready to go. Holes drilled in the enclosure, first two coats of glossy pink lacquer laid down. Tomorrow will start on the circuit.

    Any guesses as to what I'm building? [​IMG] IMG_4530.jpg

    It’s either a Talent booster, Treble booster or a “volume pedal”, but since there is a pcb, scrap the latter.

    And since the first option requires raw material to work with, it's out of the running also.
    Not a boost pedal.

    It's not pink, it's Man Salmon!

    I know, but my 9 year old daughter picked the colour, and she's absolutely convinced that it's pink. Kids...

    Remind me not to transport it in my DeLorean.

    You don't need the DeLorean, you only have to be doing 88mph. It's the plutonium powered nuclear reactor you're going to have trouble sourcing. ;)

    Potmeter or footswitch. Led or mini switch?

    Wasn't there something else about the DeLorean? An aluminum frame or stainless steel body... something like that.

    I’m guessing you’re still on the hunt for a trem circuit of some kind?

    Yes, but that's not what I'm putting together.

    I think it is something you are building for the government. A secret we are not supposed to know about.
    Am I on the right track?

    Hmm, an effect without a footswitch is not likely. So this adds some sort of functionality. Varitone, noise gate maybe?
