^^^ Electra-based overdrive with tweaked values and a sili/LED clipper combo. I quite like this one - it's warm sounding on the surface, but the LED gives it this weird, crisp undercurrent. Definitely interesting.
vvv Feedback looper (this one is mine)

Last night, I also built a non-mojo parts Harmonic Percolator that I'm anxious to box.

I've always loved this circuit! A couple of ideas with this one...
planning to experiment and build at least a few variations.

That looks great Alex! Is it a decal, because you can't really see any decal lines...

Thanks :) yeaah its a black decal (well, white stock printed with black) that's slightly oversized, i cut a square out of each corner so it folds down the sides slightly, once the clear coat it on it hides it quite well

Cheers, here it is finished, in the light you can kind of see the corners but all in all i'm pretty happy with the final look (excuse the dust on it)...

Finished my homemade breadboard station!

Image

It's 4 modular breadboards connected together and mounted to oak. It has the usual input and output, as well as a loop (send and return). For power, I put a standard pedal-type 9V DC power jack, on/off toggle for power, and a pot for voltage sag. The switch is a 3PDT which I wired in a color-coded pattern (black top, red middle, blue bottom) wired to screw-type terminals for jumper wires.

I still need a piece of angle-iron to mount project pots to at the top right corner.

Ooooo, NICE!! ^^^ 8)
That's on my list of future builds for future funds. A nice to have, but I can see burning HOURS with that thing!

It's hardly a mini... but I'm calling it a mini, hahahaha...
I crammed this 250 without diodes, in to a 1590 with top-jacks. That was something :wtf:

Apparently, I'm not a fan of germaniums? Pedals just sound better to me without them - or at least, split germ/sili.
Different strokes, I guess.
