    Woe! You even have the red box!

    Do you have one to copy or do you just get a schematic on line?
    Did you make the box/where do you get one with the right layout?

    Looks good

    I use stripboard for most of my projects. Loads of layouts can be found here.

    I use 125B boxes for most of my single-circuit builds. They offer a little more space than the standard 1590B. I buy them powder coated from Tayda.com but not predrilled. They have tons of colors, so I usually order a 6-8 at a time to save on shipping. For laying out pots and switches, simple builds get covered with masking tape then measured and marked. More complex builds might get covered with graph paper to help keep things square. I use a drill press with a step bit to punch all the holes.

    It's a really fun hobby that lets me try lots of sounds at around $8 a pedal. Shipping can get expensive, so I recommend just stocking up on components rather than ordering specific parts every time you want to build something...or at least pick a half dozen circuits and order what you need all at once.

    After a few days of playing around, I found that there are great low/med gain tones in there but they are hard to dial in. It gets really dirty really fast. So I swapped the linear taper drive pot for an audio taper drive pot. Now I have more precise control of lower gain settings but can still get all the high gain I would ever want. Recommended mod.

    Can you build me a fuzz pedal? How much would you charge?
