    That is cool you can get it with the chip soldered on. I would probably order it that way. This and the Buxom boost clone are at the top of my list if I order any more PCBs in the future.

    What does the wire mod do? Why is it better?

    Yes, the original design was copied from the gate in the KK JCM800 head.

    Yep pretty much the same gate from the Marshall KK...

    Also wow Profusion had a couple thousand left when I bought the THAT4301s I have... somebody bought them out since then.

    About the Mod...it’s a extra output like on most NG’s. Run it in the loop thru the top jacks, run your other pedals OD’s ..Distortion ..thru the pedal and out to the amp..just a thru and thru...the Other way with that key input you had to go into some pedal with 2 ins and outs like on the boss tuner....then your other pedals..very confusing...watch Olas YT vid on it

    That’s what I thought it was in the same design from the K.K amp

    Remember those transistors I forgot? Well they were 3-pin SMD J201s and that is doable with a soldering iron. For those..what..32 pins you really need and oven or so!

    Sorry man, I tried reading it three times but I just don't understand what you are trying to explain here..

    You don't need to run the side Key into a splitter / buffered box

    Small update: I got 120 LED's from AliExpress last week. Different colours in 3 and 5 mm. I've tested a few and haven't come across a single defective LED. It wasn't the cheapest seller on AE but it was still only 0,05 cents while the regular supplier charges 0,12€.
    So if you're willing to stock up, these are good.

    Those look great, and you probably surpassed me on how many pedals I have made, lol.

    Yep , went very easy once you got the hang of it , a few of the colored enclosures from Tayda doesn't look like a sticker , it looks silk screened but you can trim real close to make the others look that way as well...Black is Tuff to make look good tho

    So, last week I was around town, had some spare time and walked in a small store that sells all kinds of Dymo labelmakers to get some info. Turns out they also sell the Ptouch in backorder, for the price of 175€!
    I'm all about supporting local stores but when the first result in Google charges me 68€ instead of 175€ for the exact same model, I think: screw you!
    I'm certainly interested in that Ptouch though, I think my whole house will get labeled if I buy one..

    Another AliExpress update. Bought some bakelite knobs and a switch with LED ring. The knobs were clearly bstock or so. Paint stains here and there and the inner shaft is narrower than 6,35mm. Presumably from excess material inside. May need to file a bit away.
    The LED ring however. That's a neat piece I think. Couldn't find characteristics of the LED on the app so I sent the seller a message. She replied with 3A 250V. So, a) she gave the characteristics of the switch instead of the LED or b) when I stomp on my effect, it'll look like a nuke going off because that would be a 750watt LED! Try calculating a resistor for this thing. Might need to look for a bigger adapter though.. :D
