I added these to the list.  Thanks!!  I'm starting to think that it would be a good idea to do a similar list in the amps section for parts and kits.

What an awesome thread! Just what I'd been looking for!
I like pastel colours.

It might be worth adding http://www.pedalparts.co.kr

Unfortunately it's all in Korean so isn't very accessible. They have kits and parts. If you buy a kit, you get some of the bits, like the resistors, and the other little fiddly bits, but then you have to choose (and buy seperately-> but from the same site) the enclosure, knobs, PDTs etc.

They have a few that I don't think are on other sites, like the OCD pedal.
I ordered that and got it yesterday. I haven't built a pedal before or even done soldering yet, so it's lookin a bit confusing so far.

Once you buy the kit, you log in to the site and can access a schematic. There's one for the OCD but difficult to read.

I don't s'pose anyone's scene a regular V4 OCD schematic??  ::)

I had no idea there were this many. I've known about BYOC for a while and the recent article in Premier Guitar has got me interested in them agian, but...damn, that's a long list.

What I'd really like to find is old-fashioned sloped enclosures. Hammond boxes are fine... but this is another world:

Has anyone mentioned http://www.generalguitargadgets.com/ yet?

I built a Green Sovtek Russian Muff and it is gorgeous... the kit comes really good pots too!

+1 to www.generalguitargadgets.com
I've built a couple of their kits and when I have more spending money I will definitely build more.
Once you start building pedals it's hard to stop, it's an addiction.

also a BIG +1 to www.smallbearelec.com
Small Bear has a great selection at great prices, it's always my first stop for components

I would ask this at the www.diystompboxes.com forums they are a great source for all sorts of DIY Pedal information

I'm interested in both these and Fuzz Face style round enclosures if anyone knows of a source.

Thanks and cheers!  ~del

Just heard about a new supplier of enclosures on another thread here. Looks like the answer to those Hammond blues, the hammerite finishes are cool:

this station is really nice. i ordered it with 2 extra tips and it came with a free multimeter, and even the meter was awesome, not a piece of junk. HIGHLY recommended.

You can add www.4mspedals.com to the list too- their pedals are freakin' fun- and not as complicated as I thought they might be.  BYOC is the shizit- great components and a great forum if you need a little help.
Guitars don't define you, but rather what you do with them helps to define you.
