AsSiD Boost #2...

..has found a new home..
I was quite happy with this one as well.. The case turned out superb.
A different technique was used during the etching process that turned out really nice.
I was really happy with the results..

One slight Issue I DID have while testing this one after completion was the volume kept
sounding as if it were cutting in and out.. but only slightly.. almost as if I had a bad connection on the inside somewhere.
So, after a couple of hours troubleshooting I knew, without a doubt, that it was NOT the pedal..
So, I tilted my test amp forward and grabbed ahold of the wires connected to the speaker.. sure enough,  that is what was causing the flutter.. Wires secured, pedal tested, all is well.
What a nightmare....
There is nothing worse than trying to find a problem where there is none.
I'll be sure to check my tools first next time.

GST Electronics presents...

...the Roach-Clip Custom..

it's dirty... it's nasty... it's roachy... This is one Roach you won't mind stepping on...

3 seperate clipping circuits for absolute massive overdrive.
Asymmetrical clipping on the 3rd clipping section to give it an all around different flavor.
Seperate Bass and Treble with Volume and Saturation controls
Two different boost selections via the 3-way toggle switch providing either boosted symmetrical or asymmetrical clipping to send it over the edge, without being comical.
The effect is very musical without going overboard.
Audio and video demos to come.
The Etsy page should be updated very shortly with both the AsSiD Boost and Roach-Clip Custom.
