GuitarPCB MorC

Great pedal. I had a little bit of a hard time with the location of the DC jack, but on my next order I contacted Blake and had them not drill that hole. I drilled it myself in a better ( easier ) location

Just finished up this Stage 3 Booster for a Customer in a Tiny Mammoth 1590 with Mammoth Chicken Knob.

Slightly customized and simplified by request for the customer. Oh and the Bias Trimmer was Glued so the Customer would not be tempted. ;)

Dang. Barry, that's awesome. Really inspiring to see your handiwork. Smooth move with the nut inside the external nut DC jack. Really pulls that in to a nicer length.

Thanks for noticing Blake!

There is still one more thing someone hasn't noticed yet but it is kind of hard to tell. A trade secret perhaps? ;)

My first 1590. In hindsight I would have done a few things different wiring wise but all is good.

I will have it nailed for my second attempt. As you know I ordered 4 of these bad boys from you!

As you may or may not know I am a Penn State fan however I love the artwork on this great pedal! Fantastic job.

Spent some time inspecting that photo to see if I could notice anything else. Nothing yet, but I'm intrigued nonetheless. I want to build one of those boosters into a 1590A sometime soon.

Use to do this too, but I got tired of wasting nuts and switched back to the other style jacks.

Yeah, I feel ya. There's got to be some kind of washer, or even a glue that could be used to give a little cushion.

Actually there is a plastic washer you can get from the hardware Store (True Value Store) for me that costs .02 each that does the job perfectly but I did not have any on hand when making the build.

He said "wasting his nuts". :lol: Sorry but that caught me off guard and had a good chuckle. Thanks!

Also while you are at the hardware store pick yourself up some 3/4" E-Clips for less than a $1 and have the perfect Straplock that will only come off when you need it to.

I got a lot more where that came from.

Because everyone love a good Trem

No issues with the build. Great Trem tone and you can add the external LED to indicate the rate.. Highly recommended
