New Builds

Here are a few of my builds from over the past year

Centauress, true bypass Klone with a steampunk theme.

Surf Trem. It's an EA Tremolo(vintage style trem) with the speed knob as the status indicator that also flashes in time with the effect.

Phaser Who, built on a GuitarPCB Dr. Phybes pcb. A nice, lush phaser.

Madbean's Wah with all the mods and a bunch of LEDs, sounds great with a Whipple Inductor!

Here's one based on the Bixonic Expandora(od/dist/fuzz) made famous by Billy G of ZZ Top.

Golden Overdrive

Finished Klone Overdrive. Very loud drive with tons of headroom. I have not compared it with the real thing but I did have an owner of one hear mine and he did say that he could not tell the difference.

More previous builds

This is my 4MS Phaseur Fleur, one of my earliest builds. I originally built it stock with the 5 knobs but later added a symmetry knob that ramps up/down as well as a triangle/squarewave knob. Very nice phaser with a lot of control.
My BYOC 1 second Analog Delay. Added the stomp on the right with an extra circuit for modulation. Depth and speed are controlled by the two extra knobs. Very warm delay that can get really long repeats.
 Here is the guitarpcb Stage 3 boost in an enclosure I bought from someone on a forum. The boost itself is not very loud with unity about 3/4 of the way up, but it is very transparent and sounds very nice.
 Another enclosure I bought on a forum, the right circuit is a guitarpcb snowy white auto wah and the one on the left is a diy designed phaser called the "causality 4."
 And here is the christine distortion from, this thing is great if you want some glitchy/noise sounds and oscillations.

A long long time ago...

Latest build, an envelope filter/auto wah with a star wars theme. Sounds very nice and uses the guitarpcb snowy white circuit.

This is Spinal Tim

Amp'd-st from guitarpcb, based on the amp eleven overdrive which is an input boost(cot 50/electra) and a nice overdrive(timmy). The overdrive is nice and can go from a nice clean boost to a heavier crunch, the bass and tone knob are quite interactive as well. The boost is a simple dirty boost that can push the overdrive and give it more grit but it can also be used on its own which is a nice feature.

Some pictures of previous builds

Just some of the pedals I have made in the past:

Tiny Green Giant, 20 watt mini amp head:
Golden overdrive klone with a clean boost following it
Colorsound Overdriver/Powerboost, can go from a nice clean boost to some heavy fuzz.
One large custom project for a customer, a feedback loop, an aby box, and an effect

Here is the 4ms Atoner, massive bitcrushing box
A sequencing wah pedal, 10 knobs and a toggle switch all fit into an enclosure about the size of a boss pedal.
