Demo: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-enRxEXzOHM

I finished troubleshooting my BYOC Confidence Booster Pedal Build (modded with the adjustable gain control or whatever you wanna call it and an LED) a couple days ago, yet it didnt work, so i troubleshot it and today i got it to work finally.

It has some minimal hum from the pedal. Is there anyway to fix that?

I really love this pedal so far from how i tested it. It can get decent gain out of it for a simple boost pedal, and once the LED works and i can minimize the noise, I think this pedal will become one of my most frequently used, because the Classic 30's boost isnt very good IMO.

No paint until warmer weather...i live in South Dakota....the low was 8 degrees today...it was AWESOME!





kinda messy in there but it all fits!

yes from buildyourownclone.com
im not great at explaining so bear with me..
a booster like makes it louder, gainier, and thicker pretty much idk
lol but yeah it sounds great, check out my youtube vid tommorow and you can see for yourself.
dont ya just love living in the midwest!

Ok I actually have more questions. >_>

I don't see a pot in that bag with the rest of the stuff. What other parts did you have to buy separately to make it how it is now? Thanks.

i bought the LED, potentiometer (sp), knob, enclosure, the LED bezel, footswitch, the 4.7k resistor for the LED, DC jack, and a stereo jack....i think thats all....

yes its pretty great.
even though my bad monkey is technically an OD and this is technically a boost,
the go hand in hand and this boost schools the bad monkey in alot of ways....

I actually have a question. How long (about) were the leads of those yellow box capacitors? I remember ordering some a while back and they had leads a little longer than 1/8" long, and I was wondering if there were some of those box caps available with longer leads.

Is the 4.7k resistor 1/4w or 1/8w? What size pot did you use? Maybe if you could link it from pedalpartsplus that'd be especially helpful. And sorry for all the questions, I just don't wanna screw up when I build mine. >_> Again, thanks.

should be 1/4,
and the pot was this.....im pretty sure.
