I bought a OD2 kit a long time ago and never finished it. Well, yesterday I got the inspiration to get it done!
I designed the graphic, my family parrot, but forgot to seal it properly so the colors bled. :bawling: The picture is also blurry so it doesn't help.
The pedal is an OD and a separate Boost. There are internal trim knobs for gain, boost and tone. Very tweakable!
It sounds surprisingly (since I built it)......................really good! The 3way OD switch selects between diode/clean boost/MosFet.
I'm happy with it and since it works, could see myself building a different kit in the future.

This was a rejected graphic but gives an idea of the way it "should have" looked.

Very cool. I've got a British Blues OD kit that has been sitting on my shelf since last Christmas...2011! I keep planning on sitting down with it, but a two-year-old-terror keeps me from it. Maybe this will give me the push I need.

How about some clips?

Nice!

I've thought about doing one of those kits myself in the past.

Sound clips would be cool!

Thanks guys! Sound Clips sounds like a fun idea!
I'll put up pics of what I have, not a complete gut shot.

Nice, neat work!

Thanks., it was tough. I never soldered anything so tiny before. I'll have to see if it holds up!:dontknow:

When I read "OD kit", something completely different came up to my mind. Mine would probably contain a strong laxative and at least two big plastic bags.

Back to the topic, the pedal looks super awesome! :congrats:

Thanks!!

I have confidence.
And if it was misplaced, you just get to improve your skills by doing it again.
