Show your pedal guts!

Geiri
This post was updated on .
Guys, I can't believe there isn't a thread like this here! If there is, sorry but I couldn't find one.

Since this is a DIY community here, let's share pictures of the insides of our pedals. That way we can inspire each other and possibly learn from what others are doing.

I'll get the ball rolling:


Analogman KOT


Klon using Pedal Parts PCBs that I used to use but now have a new design for myself.


Owly Booster


Marbleverb


Klon buffer


Tap tempo


Growly


Marshall Shredmaster

I'd love to see what you guys have been doing!

Imagine yours, except really shitty looking with wires everywhere and stuff crammed wherever it will fit.  That's mine :)

Love the idea of using those wire terminals coming from the board

I don't care how messy it is, someone might be doing something cool like those terminals above, I like that idea!

Vince you should post some of your guts because they look amazing!

I started using those terminals because I found it easier to remove the board for debugging or modding.I get them from a site here in Australia . I am jealous of those pcb's though, that one with the circular resistor pattern is awesome

I don't have the talent that a lot of you guys have, but I enjoy myself..

Don't know whether to etch this one or do a swirly with different shades of blue.

Vick and Geiri, those are really clean on the inside.  I hope I can get that neat with my wiring at some point.

I would upload mine but mine are in super high resolution and I've just been waiting for about 3 mins to upload one so I gave up!

It's probably easier to host the high res photos somewhere else and just link them in.

yeah, the wire terminals is an awesome idea, I have a batch of pedals to make and was wondering how I could quickly test the boards without wiring all the pots. I guess I'll try this!

here's my contribution: DAM Meathead in a 1590LB



yeah, there's a pot underneath :D

Re: Show you pedal guts!

it seems soooooo easy when looking at your builds, john.... but i've actually built an Openhaus and:

- i had to file the edges of the board like crazy for it to fit in the 1590BB
- i tried to route the wires the way you did it, but using AWG24 wire... it got REALLY messy
- i've used BIG 470uFs electros, so tall I've had to solder them on a separate daughterboard!!!!
- i couldn't put the 2 other toggle switches on the sides... how did you do this?? did you snip off the lugs?

so congratulations for how clean it looks!

yeah, it was a very tight fit (one of the tightest ones that I've built to date). since the board was so wide, I had to route the wiring at the top and bottom of the board as opposed to around the sides like I always do. I use 26 gauge belden Teflon coated silver multistrand wire and it's by far my favorite. and yeah, even though I always use the shortest length electros that I can find, I still had to shorten the lugs on the toggles so they'd fit under the board without any components contacting the back cover.
I did a couple of mods to slightly open up the circuit's top end, and even though I absolutely love the pedal, i'd never build another one...it was that hard to get everything to fit!

here's the top view of it:

Not my best build but maybe I can inspire someone. Two boards inside a 125B, one board on the lid and other under the top face:
