    Hey everybody! I'm getting into building pedals, and looking into pursuing a career in electrical engineering with a focus on music tech. To get into this, I'm building pedals from kits from different sites, (buildyourownclone, generalguitargadgets, AMZ, geofex, etc) if anybody wants some cool handmade pedals let me kow! I'll build them for the cost of the kit plus shipping. And they'll be finished in a nice powder coated enclosure.

    As a side note, I'm not new in circuit building, (been handy with a soldering iron for quite a while :) just new to making pedals.

    Edit: I've had several messages from people so far, and am blown away with TB's support for my desire to learn! If anyone would be interested, I've also been working on some original designs for a pedalboard power supply, and different configurations of an effects loop switch. One that's a 6 loop rackmount box with a foot pedal that connects over a midi cable but is all analog. The other is an infinitely expandable foot pedal looper that could have any number of loops, and could have a pedal board power supply built into it.

    I can also do mods to pedals, like most of the DL4 mods, converting a TS9 into an 808, etc.
  2. Can you do repairs? I have a Boss phaser & Dano delay that crapped out. Also some possible rehouse jobs if we can come to an agreeable deal. :cool:

    Rehousing is definitely something I could do! Repairs might still be a bit above my abilities. I would be more than willing to try though!
  4. Cool- I'll pull my stuff out and get back to you, likely later tonight. Thanks! :cool:

    Could you do a compressor, maybe like the MXR M87?

    Placed an order today to get the parts to build 3 pedals! As I get going on them I'll post some pics to settle any worries about my soldering skills! :)

    Had someone message me about a Zendrive clone. If anyone wants one, it's $120 delivered to you!

    Hmm, sounds pretty cool. I've been wanting to get a chorus pedal... something like the T Rex Sweeper or even a EHX Clone Theory. How much would something similar to those be?

    Got my first batch of stuff delivered yesterday! Working on a BBE sonic stomp clone for myself, a TS808, and a wooly mammoth. Working on a Guv'nor clone too.

    Gonna be out of town all next week, just do anyone who bought a kit from me knows. But as soon as I come back I'm gonna get working on these more.

    Amateur. Take my advice for its resale value.
    Interested in a A/B amp switch. Is that something available?
