    So I mostly finished my first B.Y.O.C. build.

    It was very easy and fun to do and more will follow. I realize now how good these pedals are and while someone with more skill might find them a little pricey I think these are a great bargain for someone like me at the moment.

    Also owning some of the other clones using the same circuit boards and knowing how these work and sound I can't wait to start building more pedals.

    Chorus next. And I heard an ADA Flanger clone is in the works too...

    Thanks by the way. Yeah for my first one I think it worked out pretty good.

    Everything is real except the type. I don't have the stuff yet for doing the type.
    I am still researching the best and cheapest method. But I think I will try using
    waterslide inkjet decals for the type and clearcoat over them. But I am still looking at making screens.

    I just used a grinder stone wheel in a drill to add some modeling to the metal and then used Dupli-Color Metalcast paint.
    ( I assume the Krylon X-Metal paint is the same ).

    Unfortunately the sun went down before I could get pic's. But the Metalcast makes the aluminum box appear to be anodized and looks much better then in the photo I have so far.

    I've seen others using dremel bits to add designs to the metal and use the Dupli-Color also. You can get pretty cool tooled effects. (Like the Chorus photo above, which by the way looks killer!)

    I will try a sunburst next and Dupli-Color also makes a pearl flip flop paint that I think would be cool too.

    Without the type. And I think it should have a blue LED in there:

    I may try to add some of my photos too, something like this...

    There are some talented guys here. The tremall and the first version of the Expect Fuzz (without the lady) are very very nice.

    1. It was built (mostly) by my 11 year old son (yeah he's a guitarist!)
    2. It is now proudly owned/played by Eric Johnson (yeah that EJ!)
