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.

Hello, I'm new here. I play cbg's foor 6 months now. I am looking for an affordable looper that does the trick. Just lopping, unlimited layer adding and easy to use. Any sugestions?

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)

That's one serious pedal Bear!! When you said pedal I was thinking a distortion type pedal only. Curious as to the specs on the battery you received. 12v 7ah should last for hours like you mentioned. Post pic when project is done.
