Built prototype with some unused wire terminals & an odd size wood scrap. I just hate to throw things away, so I use them to so I build quirky stuff with it instead.

Louis, U can get a looper pedal on eBay less than $40. Search ”Amoon “ looper pedal- most affordable on market. I’ve seen them in action, not bad?

Really nothing 2 see, jus plain boxes with knobs n jacks. I make mostly fuzz & some tube screamer types, I favor dirt pedals.

Brian, post some pics of your projects.

Too bad there’s no action in here, I build at least one or more pedals a week, thought it’d be full of build questions? Maybe a beginners project or something?

I'm really liking my new setup. Running an ElectroVoice 'Soul Food' into a Boss 7 band eq. The soul food by itself kinda muffles the tone a bit. I use the eq to re add some of the lost tone. Run the soul food about 9 o'clock.

Your very welcome Bear, look forward to build!

I will do Blind Lemon Cello. I've now found a 12v 20ah battery that by calculation should last well over 20 hours powering a 12v 800ma pedal? It's £40 but deep cycling so can be drained to just above 10%. I'm hoping to have a battery meter too to make sure I don't take it below 10%. The charger is another £40 but it's not a trickle charger so worth the extra money it would seem. Amazing how much can be learned from a day spent reading about this stuff and watching videos lol.

Might not be doing the battery build for a while due to finances but as soon as I've done it I'll post pictures and maybe even a "how to".

Thanks again. You've been a fantastic help and I really appreciate it. Have a great weekend. Bear :o)
