Rehousing a Behringer Pedal/Noob help?

    Let me start off by saying I am aware that this might seem like a great deal of effort on a product that doesn't necessarily seem to deserve it, but something about the Behringer Analog Delay adds a touch of clipping that I haven't been able to get since my vintage Ibanez Square Button delay was stolen. Thus, I'd really like to rehouse the pedal in something more sturdy. Can anyone give me some direction and instruction here. I'm good with a soldering iron, and not afraid of failing a few times along the way, I just need instruction. I've got an enclosure on order that should fit the PCB, but I'd appreciate help. And pictures are always awesome when helping an idiot like me.

    Hey man,
    It should be a straight forward out of the BGR box into the new enclosure. Only hard part from looking at the pedals guts is the stomp switch. Just wire a 3dpt switch instead. Is the enclosure pre drilled or are you drilling it?

    I'm drilling. And I suspect that I'll need to swap out the jacks which I've not ever done.

    And I've never wired into PCB before like the switch will need. So any help or advice there is appreciated.

    It's probably SMD with thin traces and board mounted jacks. Not a good place to start for a beginner.

    You might want to consider making a bypass looper rather than rehousing.

    If you are talking about the unfortunately named VD400 it's my favorite delay. The TC Echobrain looks to be that circuit rehoused for $50.
