Hi UGers,

It was my birthday yesterday and i got a pedal kit (plus some other stuff). Im making it at the moment and thought i might post it on UG. Its the 250+ and im making it to the DOD 250 overdrive specs. Unfortunately i had already populated the PCB before i took the pics but oh well. Here we go:

All the stuff (apart from PCB)


populated PCB:


Tonight i am actually soldering the components to the PCB and will keep you guys posted.

Do you know where the kit was ordered from? I want one!

I made a generic distortion pedal. Most of the work is in the drilling of the case, making sure everything fits, you have left enough room between the pots etc. Something I failed epically at

Doesn't it rock when you try it and it works. I'm always amazed when I re solder some guitar components and it works.

Maybe racing stires for the paint job?

no you could use a dpdt switch (6 lug one)... I don't see why you would want to. But it could still be true bypass. You just couldn't have an LED. which is why you really need the 9 lug stompswitch for

yea a 6 prong switch would work with true bypass too. Hell you could just have a stompswitch on your guitar i think that would be pretty cool, lol

millenium bypass uses dpdt and lights an LED as well as providing true bypass. great if you're in the UK and 3PDT switches arn't freely available
#15
they do make 3PDT toggle switches. I accidentally bought some from futurelec when what i wanted was stomp switches.
