    I like it … looks professional and clean layout.

    Loudness and Distortion....and clean off course with the on/off. With the dist at zero the Loudness is preamp gain of what? that could over drive a tube preamp nicely too.

    need more gearporn pics...inside and lid off..

    if it's not happening in the room, it ain't gonna happen on tape.-H.Gerst

    Gut shot.

    The switch is for symmetrical clipping (which is the stock design hence the S) and Asymmetrical clipping (mod). The stock setting is just a couple of zenner diodes in parralel and the mod is a 1n4001 and 5mm LED in parallel.

    Enclosure was powder coated at home, then I had a friend screen print it, then I put clear powder over that at home.

    The result is a very durable finish and powder coating takes around 2 hours between both coats from start to finish (based on both cure time and time it takes to cool after it's baked on).

    The kit (enclosure and components) was sold by small bear electronics.

    All in the pedal was around $70 to build including finish (although I admit if you don't know a dude who can hook you up with screen printing the price would probably go up, it was a learning experience for both of us. He had never tried screen printing a pedal before). Outsourcing powder coating is pretty pricey from what I hear as well.
