I've been making plans for this build for quite a while now, and even enlisted the help of my dad to put the enclosure together, but I got busy, then got laid off, and never got around to starting it. I came across the enclosure a couple weeks ago looking for something else, and dug out the tackle box I have full of components for my DIY projects. The tubes/sockets, caps, and resistors are all still in there. Time to get started. I did something smart before heading out of Cali on my way home for the holidays, and packed the enclosure he had made. He has a drill press and a wider variety of bits, so I could get the hole sizes I needed given the odd mix of components. So, I took some time out in the shop between this morning's gift exchange and when my sis and brother-in-law will be getting here for dinner, and got the holes drilled for the enclosure: It doesn't look like much now, but when finished it'll (hopefully) be a 2-channel tube overdrive/distortion pedal. The row of three holes in front will be master on/off, with separate on/off for each channel so that they can be used independently or stacked for extra toobey goodness. Each channel will have volume/tone/gain, and a switch to change the tone caps for different tone characteristics. Up in the top are the cutouts for the tube sockets, and holes to mount the protective guards. I'll start on the insides once I get back to Cali and keep you posted on progress. As I look at this, I'm realizing my previous idea for graphics and a name for this thing won't really work, so if you have any ideas please throw them out. Hope everyone had a great Chistmas.
