I have been burned by that, I'll show you an example in the morning
That was a narrow escape then! Thanks for the advice.

IC big muff, though it's not built yet. Hopefully get some of it done at the weekend.

Now I really want a swirly aluminium pedal .

As promised, this is the issue I had with the Halfords stuff. The orange and white base layers are from Halfords, sprayed and baked. I left it a few weeks, put it in a cupboard and then got it out to find it had chipped and worn. You can't see, but it also picked up some 'texture' from a plastic bag that was on top of it. pretty gutted given the hours I have into it.

I had the same problem with a Wooly Mammoth clone I sprayed sparkly green too, but I can live with that.

That looks amazing, even with the paint coming off a bit. How did you get the graphics on it?

Rather than baking the enclosure, I was just planning to leave it in the shed for a while, so this may all go horribly wrong. But I'm painting it yellow, so it'll look horrible anyway.

edit: moc bodies

Its painted by hand using acrylics, clearcoared with aerosol. I baked them to drive off the solvents, seems to take forever otherwise. Either way, the paint still feels slightly soft, not hard at all.

The bodies just happened to be on my table, I keep them on the house so they don't get damp.

Edit: Thank you for the kind words!

Really. That's pretty brave for a first peddle!

And yeah. I don't think it was the greatest idea to try it on a die cast enclosure, but I'm sure there are aluminum ones that would work out better.

Also, this is sort of cool. From what I understand, this band (probably with different members) was his project before Rated R came out.

Nice. I'm not going to attempt anything as detailed.

Is it? The difficulty said medium, but I thought that was just because it's made of quite a lot of parts. Plus all the easy ones were boosts, which isn't as fun as a muff.

Well for me anyway. And you could do some simpler fuzz pedals too - the fuzz face is really simple. Even I built one (until I started modifying it, which lead to its untimely death)

You don't necessarily have to paint your enclosure.

Hadn't actually thought of a fuzz face. The big muff should nail the sound I want though... provided I don't ruin anything while assembling it.

There's a joke somewhere in there about pink furry muffs, I just can't quite put my finger on it.

Also, is there such a thing as a carbon fibre guitar case? ... Asking for a friend...I'm sure I've seen some before.

Yeah, I've only seen them online though. Must be the best way to keep a carbon fibre guitar safe.

I didn't find a whole lot. Just these massive ones which appear to be for acoustics.

Also, I found the matching power supply for the woolly clammoth (potentially NSFW?)

Really.

Is he not allowed to explain it?

I can relate to 2 and 3 so much it's depressing.

Also 5, but with guitars. My pedalboard is disgusting - cables everywhere, and I never clean it.

Mine needs redone again. I put the metal zone on it and it's made everything else sound bad, even when it's switched off. I'm not joking.
