    Here are my first forays into the world of DIY pedals.  I started with the kits below and will be starting my first self-source build of a BBE Sonic Stomp clone this weekend.

    These are, respectively, The Swede, a Boss HM-2 clone from https://buildyourownclone.com/ and the Refractor, a Klon Centaur clone from https://aionelectronics.com/

    When I’m done with the sonic stomp, I’ll post pics of that too.

    Anyone else into clone building?

     

     

    Also, I didn’t solder anything to anything that wasn’t supposed to be attached to each other…. coughhefcough

    Get out.

    Awesome, @kriegs!  Look forward to the progress of it, and them.  Any sounds clips available, from the two already fabricated?

    I’d love to do this, but I barely have time to wipe Hef’s ass, right now.

    Love to but I don’t think I’d have the patience to spend hours working on micro-electronics.  Pickup swaps is enough for me.

    I’ve wanted to do this. I’d love to hear sound samples! I have yet to research what the good kits are.

    Kriegs, maybe we can start our own SCTMMC pedal company!!!

    We can call if Electro Sarcastics Technologies and you be our very own Mike Matthews.

    I’ve wanted to as well. I did build a on board preamp (stingray clone) that I never quite finished, for the bass out in my workshop, that I never quite finished. 😕

    Playing bass for 35 years, taking time out for meals, of course

    Nah, I’m content with rolling my own and experimenting with changing different components and seeing what the effects are.  Specifically, I’m working on learning how how to modify effects to work better with my bass tones vs. my guitar tones.

    No idea who Mike Matthews is but he kinda looks like Hef after he takes off the makeup after a performance that he’s particularly happy with.

    Get out.

    Life becomes cluttered with unfinished projects doesn’t it?  I always say I want to go back and finish them… but I rarely do =/

    Get out.

    Here’s my Stingray 2-band clone, as you can see, still missing 2 resistors, a cap……….and the bass
