    Anyone ever think about trying to rehouse a klon? Seems like theres extra space in that pedal, though the circuit board is pretty long.

    Theres something tempting about locking the 100% preserved case away in a closet, so that the condition of your investment remains solid despite gigging.

    Is the factory air trapped inside part of the tone? If so he should epoxy that too! jk. I'm sure a single call to Bill would leave for a good explanation as to why he made a case size so big.

    I think that's a good idea. And while you're at it, copy that damn circuit so you can start building us Klon clones :BEER

    I thought about it... but the PC board is pretty big and you wouldn't save much space at all. I think I'd rather see a true bypass mod. The thing never got along with the fuzz pedals on my board.

    Maybe you could chop up a rubber glove and wrap it for "protection".
