Same...but I hope the finished product works... lol. I might need to get a bigger box because it doesnt seem like everything will fit in this one.

Hey guys. Sorry about no updates in a few days. I just bought a PRS Custom 24 Ten-Top 20th Anniversary yesterday so I have been busy playing that. I should have some updates maybe tomarrow and hopefully it will be done in about 1-2 more days of working on it.

HUGE UPDATE!!!!

Today I worked on the pedal and guess what??? I finished!!!! I was so scared to plug it in and see if it worked but I went and did it. I plugged it in, fixed all of the settings and pressed the footswitch....

The blue LED appeared. I played a note. It sounded freaking AMAZING! I fixed all of the settings (Gain-10, Volume-10, Tone-10) and wow!!! This thing is powerful! It can OD so freaking hard! It also boosted my sound at least 2-3 times when I pressed the footswitch off! It is amazing what it sounds like. I am so excited because this is my first build and it turned out great! I love its sound. It actually sounds like a tube amp and its very punchy like a Jimi Hendrix OD with punchy single coil pickups!

I will post the pictures and sound clips later. I need to go buy a bigger box for the pedal because right now everything doesnt fit in it.

Well... I have to buy a new box for it because the one its in right now is too small. Its actually half in the box and half out right now . I might spray paint or just regular paint it. Im not sure yet though. I probably just want to play around with it for a while now. But in the future I might make a project out of painting it.

Looks perfect, but will it stick and blend on plastic?

We need some soundclips


My 2 tube screamers:

just one of them over the clean channel, works good for your general classic rock rythm work but kind of missing a bit for any leads
http://g0g0g0.dyndns.org/omgwtf/fuz...ubescreamer.mp3

the dirty channel of my solid state amp with the drive on about 5, then with one of them kicked in, then with both of them kicked in...then I think I did the lead part with only one of them, can't remember....
http://g0g0g0.dyndns.org/omgwtf/fuz...bescreamer1.mp3

My camera's batteries are empty so no pics for now

You can use a +10kohm series resistor without too much trouble if you're using ultrabright LEDs (which are bright as hell anyway)

it'll save battery life too (in really simple circuits that don't use much power the LED can easily eat up more power than the the actual circuit if you're running it bright)

Finally Sound clips (sort of video clips but the because I was recording through a camcorder). They are with my Hartke GT60C amp, PRS Custom 24 guitar, and Marshall BluesBreaker pedal:

Little Wing (BluesBreaker off), then Voodoo Child (BluesBreaker on): http://media.putfile.com/Little-Wing-to-Voodoo-Child

Black Dog main riffs with a bit of improvising at the end (BluesBreaker on): http://media.putfile.com/Black-Dog-80

Sweet Home Alabama (BluesBreaker on/off random switching): http://media.putfile.com/Sweet-Home-Alabama-66

Purple Haze (BluesBreaker on): http://media.putfile.com/Purple-Haze-37

Thanks, it is great!

Another Soundclip:

Enter Sandman (Just the simplicities of it to show you how much the Marshall BluesBreaker I build can boost the overdrive of my amps overdrive a lot. When the blue LED is on, the BluesBreaker is on, when the LED is off, so is the BluesBreaker.): http://media.putfile.com/Enter-Sandman-32
