Hey UG.

Here's the deal

I can't really get metal pedal enclosures that easily where I live so I was thinking about making one out of "organic glass"



The stuff is pretty damn sturdy and it wouldn't be to hard for me to glue together the casing.

Your thoughts ?

id say go for it. If the stuff is sturdy enough you could make some cool as looking effects ^_^

ONLY, and ONLY... if you habe multicolour LEDs that pulse, and change colour, when you play differt notes and play loud/soft sounds.

so yeah, add some freaking lights and it would be awesome.

You deserved this, Matt.

dont forget that some pedals use the enclosure as part of the circuit. make sure everything inside gets grounded and more importantly metal enclosures cut down on interference. you might want to consider that.

The enclosure shields the effect from RF signals and other interference. Basically, you'll want to shield it some other way, or your pedal will more than likely get noisier.

Well, not compared to a regular wooden pedal board, or not having a case at all... I don't see the problem.

put a bunch of LED's inside the casing. Is that like plexiglass?

He is talking about the actually pedal being made out of class not a pedal board.

You could line the inside with some kind of metal mesh. As far as I'm aware, as long as the holes are smaller than a certain size, interference will not get through. I can't be arsed to find the actual measurement right now, but It allows for a large enough gap that really any kind of screen or mesh should do the trick and any lights inside would still be visible. I actually think that would look really cool.

Ah. In that case it's more relevant, but still not necessarily a problem, depending on what he wants to make... I've seen a Big Muff clone that was basically made by screwing the components right onto the top of a 2x4, and that was pretty quiet.
