Fuzzy Elephant

Here’s a clone of the Zvex Wooly Mammoth. Came out pretty good, sounds good too. I used strip board layout here: http://www.freestompboxes.org/viewtopic.php?f=7&t=4&start=40 It’s about halfway down the page. I modified it to move the parts closer together. My layout ended up being 17 holes wide which fit in the box a little better. I used a small hex bolt and a standoff to secure the PCB in the box.

Note the “mojo” ceramic disk capacitors. I housed everything in a box from 4Site electronics. These are great boxes the finish is very nice and the screws are much higher quality than the Taiwanese boxes.

I made a mistake and couldn’t fit the DC jack in the center at the top, where I had drilled the hole. So I drilled second hole and used a piece of brass to cover the first hole. I’m trying to think of some way to stamp something into the brass plate so it will serve some purpose beyond covering the error.

I have a few spools of hook up wire from Radio Shack. This stuff is terrible. The insulation melts. I would not recommend it.
