    This is a GuitarPCB pedal board featuring analog circuitry with Loops to change effects order or go from series to parallel in one compact unit. Enjoy Part 1 of a multiple part series. Share the Love!

    I gotta say something.  At first I thought this might be one LARGE pcb behind this and I switched over here to see it.  And the you-tube video is a nice picture of the same.  So now I’m thinking it’s several of your pcb boards all run in a main box.  I’ll be waiting with bated heart for more info!

    Hats off to Wilkie1

    This is fabulous. I am in the middle of a combo PCB board build and would love to see how you put this together.

    Brilliant stuff mate can’t wait to see more.

    I can’t fathom the amount of time, planning, resources, creativity and imagination that went into such a beast. Impressive!

    Wow!  That means a lot coming from a Master Builder like you!  Many thanks, Mark.

    There will be more details provided in future posts.  I am available for specific questions as well.

    Oh.  I forgot.  Add about 50 feet of Barry’s Best Wire and about 1 pound of solder.

    I always knew there was a Master in our midst but this is way beyond mastery.  My thesaurus lets me down at the moment. This needs to be celebrated brother! I bow and I bow again. there it is …Amazeballs

    Many thanks to you, my friend.  Your builds have inspired many of us.

    This one started when my old German HO train nut passed away.  I had made a lighting control panel for him.  I took that enclosure (Hammond 1456RL3WHBU from Mouser) and realized it had room and predrilled holes for many effects  That started the design.

    Barry and I had been talking about series/parallel switching for some time.  That led to the following switching system:

    Any questions?  More to come later..

    Very cool indeed. I’m going to have to digest that a few more times.

    Don’t know if I could operate that Wilkie never mind build it

    I’m sure if they dig that up in the future they’ll be scratching their heads on some tv programme making comparisons to the Antikythera mechanism!

    Superb work even Pete Cornish would be envious
