This is a really cool service that manufactures open source PCB designs. You can order any of the open source designs on the site. Most of the stuff is not stompbox oriented. It takes a little google-fu to search up stompbox projects. You can also upload your own designs.

You have to order 3 PCB minimum for each board you order. The orders seem to get ganged with other orders so it sounds like your order doesn’t get printed immediately. That said the prices seem very reasonable.


I just placed an order for a few PCBs. I’ll post again when the order comes in…

Good Articles on CMOS Chips in Stompboxes

Here are some good articles on using CMOS chips in stompboxes.





Null-A (dual orange squeezer)

Two Dan Armstrong Orange Squeezers, in series. This was built following the dual orange squeezer build at uStomp.com.

Analog delay

this is a a clone of the Boss DM-2. I used the Coolaudio V3205. The delay time is fairly short, less than one second. The delay sound is very nice, I can see why people covet these bucket brigade delays.

Titan Boost-Octave

I built this some years ago, and lost the ages on my blog so I thought I’d repost them. This was a idea posted by John Hollis, whatever happened to him?

SG Jr kit

this was built from précis ion guitars kit. I made a few small modifications.

The finish is a wipe on wax from wudtone. This looks really good and was very easy to apply, required no special equipment, and, best of all, no toxic fumes! You could apply this stuff in your living room, seriously. It was very easy to do. The cost was not cheap, though not bad for a single guitar.

Old build pictures

These were some builds I made about 10 ten years ago. These were all built with PCB that mounts the pots and jacks.

I etched some design on some of the boxes. There are a few images in there of this process.
