    Ooh thanks for those. Huge fan of @Proton Lenny vids (and playing). I have spent hundreds and hundreds of dollars because of those vids. Never noticed he did some ES-8 vids.

    I am still.hemming and hawing about what to do for cabling. At this moment thinking of doing switchcraft 380 or similar stubby short straight plug on the ES-8 end and pancake jacks on the pedal end, but the jury is still out.

    SO clean and sick setup!!! Looks like you can get lost in that thing making noise. What are the knob locks or things around the knobs that I presume are there to hold them in place?

    Thanks! They are called "StompShield". For the most part they are a cool product. They fit over the existing control pot by removing the knob then the hex nut, then you reuse the hex nut to hold it on and then reinstall the knob. For the most part they fit well, but in the case of a few pedals like Empress and Moog they don't fit. You can buy knobs to fit inside too, most existing knobs seem to fit, but check before you buy. I'm happy with them and want a few more. I had them on the Strymon TimeLine encoder pots for a while too.

    Very cool! What mods have been done to that Rat? I see a couple extra knobs. Also, love that plane wing looking table

    Thanks, it's a cool table for sure. We have small kids, and when it arrived it was this perfectly polished, not a dent in it gleaming showpiece. Now it looks way better with all of the character they added!

    Yes, Frank the Rat. It has the "Lube" mod (top right white knob) which is the Ruetz mod on a pot so you can adjust the mid range hump, highly recommend this for bass players. The toggle on the left is to select the hard clipping (Schottky / None / Special) which has some proprietary diodes in it that sound loud like no clipping, but add a bit of compression and grind. It has a bunch of cap mods inside, and LM308 metal can IC. The toggle switch on the left is basically for highs (Brash / Crisp / Polite). The white knob on the left is to blend in a diode with the OPamp to get "soft" clipping. It sounds on the verge of an octave fuzz when fully open. Love this pedal on bass and guitar, it's the right mix of loud, not too smooth distortion with clarity and heft.
