This is my first all at home board etching project.
I etched the Nautilus board and my own 3PDT board.
There was a lot that could go wrong with the etches, but my biggest problem was my unfamiliarity with Vactrols.
I had them in upside down for a while. Once I flipped them over it was all good.
The Nautilus sounds nice, I guess. I'm not a big fan of envelope filters, so this sounds as nice as any other. They don't really suit my sound well. I like deep and thick bass with not a lot of treble and filters don't usually sound their best with that tone. I tooled around with it on my treble guitar and it sounds fine on that frilly little toy. Click here to go to the demo.
Outside: I tried to do something fancy with spray paint, clear coat, and rain. It just ended up looking like a crappy paint job.
Inside: Check out those home made board, eh?
