Painted this up for my Dead Astronaut Abductor 2 .. It's a quad delay with separate volumes for each stage. Does really really long delays too.

It'll probably look better with a gloss coat. Need to touch up the numbers a little too. My brushes are old so it wasn't real accurate.

Dude, that looks pretty killer! Alcohol inks?

Thanks man! Nah it's all just Wal-Mart acrylics watered down and blended and layered.. I was pretty pleased with how it came out.

Thanks dude, I am in the process of boxing a bunch of stuff and wanted to do something special for the Abductor. I rolled a couple 5537 LDR/LED combos to try in my meatball clone after a few dudes swore they were better than the 1M dark LDRs.. so we will see.

I bought five C1k 16mm pots from GB off eBay because Tayda only has the crap ones, and I didn't want to commit to a small bear order.. though I need to, so I can get a set of FZ-1A transistors.. I find most circuits that call for a 1k for the "Fuzz" knob always end up needing a C1k .. I was playing the black acid clone and it definitely needs a C taper for the fuzz.

I'm thinking I may hand paint a few more boxes this weekend since it's like 300° outside

Shoot man, I just got a small bear order in, I could have added something like that on there for ya.
Maybe we should start a diy group buy thread :idea:

...and multiple enclosures at once is the way to go. Especially if painting, and the weather permitting. I was doing a batch of enclosures last week, and came up with a new finish for one of my designs, which involved multiple layers/masking/etc...only to completely muck it up on the very last thing I had to add :facepalm: much disappointment.

Yeah I legitimately start stressing out hard when I'm like 90% done with an enclosure.

I have that little group of goodies I was threatening to send to you, I just have one final step to complete it.. I've been lazy and busy at work so my bench time is at a stand still.

I go through these stages where I'd really like to make higher quality enclosures and then reality sets in and I realize my cat and partner don't give a shit..

I built a what the fuzz .. using Freppos layout and it's quite possibly one of the more interesting 2 knob effects I've played.. I want to try some starve values to see what it does before I box it. It retains all the crazy sounds while cleaning up with volume knob on the guitar.. a highly recommended build. For sure.

I'm usually not too worried about it in the process, but I was elated by the turn out of this one, and then just totally fucked up. The enclosure got stuck to the stamp, and when I lifted, it picked up and released...face down right onto an ink pad :facepalm: Decided to finish stamping the controls anyway, and put one in the wrong spot...Reminder that working through the night isn't always a good idea...I'll post it eventually...my cats didn't care either :grumpy: :lol:

Looking forward to the goody box! You have me more curious now :cool:

Yeah, the painted enclosure is super rad - as is the Dead Astronaut Abductor 2!

Looking forward to see your etchings - I just had a first ever go at it past weekend and the results were, uhm, quite interesting. :lol:

Thanks man!

:erm: I'm pretty sure I'll chemically barbeque a few boxes before I get anything that's decent.. but I feel like it might be the next step for enclosures for me.. share any advice you learned the hard way? :)*

Ha-ha, well, I actually had the hardest time getting a decent transfer of the image, it just didn't work out properly, but I went ahead with the etching anyway ...

I had 3 back plates to try and used different paper/printers, maybe I also didn't sand down properly beforehand - or my ironing thing is not powerful enough or I didn't do it long enough?

The etching itself went pretty smoothly and it's a cool process to do - and watch.
