    I just got the parts for my little IC Buffer pedal yesterday and finished it in a couple hours.......now I'm ready to get started on my next project. I was thinking of trying out a kit from BYOC......but I don't know what to get first....the only pedals I have left right now are a Bad Monkey, wah, and volume pedal.......and this is what I want to build, eventually:

    Ross Comp
    TS-808 (maybe two of these)
    Fuzz Face
    Delay
    Chorus
    Maybe a phaser

    But which one first???

    I ordered my parts for the buffer from small bear......there was however a small problem as they sent me a 1uf Electrolytic cap instead of a .1uf film cap......but I found one in my box o' crap that I could use, and I'm not gonna whine to them about one part screwup.....after all, they did send me an extra ic socket.

    I'm kinda at a toss up between the delay and the comp......I've never been too big on phasers.....but then again I've never had one. Hopefully if I get a decent tax return I can build 'em all.....

    Avwalker, I wasn't big on Phasers either and I'd never had one. I built one because I'd built nearly everything else (apart from a delay). You can't go wrong with a compressor though. I've built an orange squeezer which I think is great and nearly finished a Ross.

    From your pedal list, I would recommend the delay. That said, I built the chorus; it is a great sounding pedal and a fun kit!

    Here is the finished DonnerBox. I changed the led to yellow. It flashes with the LFO so it ties right into the flame of the enclosure.

    I have almost everything I need in my Tonelab SE, but because I can't use the compressor and fuzz or wah at the same time, I was thinking about a BYOC RossComp myself.

    I'm not sure how much pedal building experience you have, but it sounds like the IC buffer was your first build? I'd go with easier stuff (fuzzes, ODs) and then work up to the delays and phasers. Trouble shooting delay and modulation circuit are a pain.
