    I just finished my first DIY effect, a guitar OD. I'm so happy it works and happier that it sounds good! :hyper: I know, I know, pics or it didn't happen, but I don't want to open it up unless really absolutely necessary because it isn't for me and it's a mess inside :bag: but it works!!! :hyper::hyper::hyper:

    So, anyone who does DIY, do you remember what your first pedal was? Anyone still have theirs? Come on, let's see!

    Craig Anderton's Super Tone Control and his Ring Modulator, both from Electronic Projects For Musicians. Even way back then (mid-70s), I didn't use either as a pedal though.
