Thread: Finished My First OD Kit

    Finished My First OD Kit

    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. 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.

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

    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!

    I like to leave things open to interpretation but......................this is a guitar forum right?

    Thanks!!

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