    Hello everybody. My name is Dominic and I've been building pedals for a few years now. I've decided to officially offer my services here. I work as a kind of custom shop. People have come to me asking if I could build something specific, and I take on the project if possible. If there's anything you're looking for pedal-wise, let me know and I may be able to help. I keep my prices very reasonable. Pedals on average are between $150 - $250 depending on the difficulty of the project.

    Here are some examples of some of my previous builds:

    I've always been a huge fan of your work congrats on the well deserved success and are you still building the 360?

    Thank you so much! I really appreciate it. I'm indeed still building the 360 preamp. It is probably my most requested build.

    I don't Facebook. That 360 looks interesting though. It's a pre and fuzz in one?

    Yes sir. The 360+ preamp, a project designed by jcm of Viva Analog, is essentially a copy of the Acoustic 360 head. It contains a few nice mods to the original design. A pad switch, which can be adjusted with an internal trimmer pot, was added. A Blend control was added to Fuzz section allowing you to blend the clean sound into the fuzz. The expensive inductor used in the Variamp circuit has been replaced with an electronic inductor circuit which give the same function and performance. The mute switch was replaced with an optical switch circuit, which makes the switching noiseless. With the help of jcm, I've added a DI XLR output.

    I've had a few request to replace the mute switch with a bypass. I'm currently doing some testing to find the best and quietest bypass circuit and will soon be able to offer it as an optional mod.

    If anyone has any questions, let me know.

    Glad I found this thread! I'm really hoping I can swing a 360+ with a DI within the next year.

    i got one. it is a great pedal. IMHO i recommend the bypass instead of the mute so it is more effect versus a always on preamp.

    I have had one of Dom's 360+ pedals for nearly 3 years. You will appreciate having one in your arsenal. Now, if
    we could only get him to place a Chandler REDD .47 in the same enclosure....
