    Has anyone built any of these kits? They have a pretty good selection and reasonable prices. I would like to see some bass specific pedals, though. www.buildyourownclone.com

    I've heard very good things about them, I thought they did do some bass specific kits like a BrassMaster Clone

    Maybe they used to, I just didn't see any on their site. I guess I should have dug a little deeper. Thanks.

    Bump. I'm still curious about these pedals, specifically the delay and chorus. Anyone?

    Their quality is good, but I wouldn't consider it much of DIY myself. I use perfboard, do my own layouts, wiring, and a few design changes in each. However, if you know what you're doing, BYOC pedals offer much flexibility in a good quality finished product.

    I haven't ever built my own effects, but I am quite comfortable with a soldering iron. BYOC seems like a good place to get started on these type of projects. One of these days I'll have to give it a shot. Thanks.
