    Yes Black night wasn’t my Idea. The builder named it. But it’s in good company!

    The booster kit i used is this one:
    http://www.generalguitargadgets.com/effects-projects/boosters/stratoblaster-booster/

    And the slide pot is this one:

    https://www.futurlec.com/Potentiometers/POT50KAMONOLOGpr.shtml
    The pots little pin is made of plastic and i Wish it World be in metal.

    And the mounting holes requires M2 Machine screws and a washer which took a while to find.

    The pushpull pot is a CTS 250k and the tonepot is a regular CTS 250

    Stereo jack for battery connection. And a screw in mounting jack.
