So there is a guy close to me who sells electronical parts of OD/Dist/etc pedals for a really low price. (i think he buy the parts from various electronical shops and then build the pedals from schematics over the internet) Then i should solder them together and try to make a house for the electronic. He sells them in "presoldered" form also, where you get the fully working electronics and jacks, leds etc. without the pedalcase.
So i dont know their quality but he sells TS808 clones with the JRC4558D chip. Which is good according to the link.
So after i put the whole thing together right, could i get a significantly worse sound than a real TS808 would have?

worser - LOL

it depends.. if the electronics are the exact same as the real pedal, it'll sound the exact same, if they are different, it'll sound different


"worser" sound is subjective

do you have elecronical background? theres a lot that can go awry when building circuits, and getting into things like that, there might be lots of troubleshooting before it works correctly

As far as i know the only liquor that should not be stored after opened is wine, and even then it's mainly the french one. American wine usually has conservatives in it to stop this.

I have almost zero practical electronical knowledge, but i would buy a soldering iron, and would practice soldering with cables and stuff. However i am anttending an engineer university (wee are doing stuff at the software side of the things, no soldering and stuff) so i would have a sense for this stuff.

do you know how to read digital electronic schematics though? it isnt really all as simple as it sounds, but i wish you the best of luck...make sure you practice soldering and get it down pat! cold solder joints will ruin it! also, you should probably try wiring a simple circuit so you can test it and see if your solder joints and connections are all functional, just to see if you got the hang of it right to assemble the pedal correctly.

You can get little kits in maplin (in the UK) for simple preamps, radios etc for a couple of quid.

doing one or two of them will give you a good feel for it as you are actuaaly mounting and soldering components onto a PCB, as opposed to just rewiring your guitar - which is quite easy really.

Get a vacuum solder pump/solder sucker, don't bother with using braid on a PCB, I made a mess of my wah pedal. It does work, but it looks like crap

A bit like me really.
