Good job - those blue LEDs have great tone. :smile:
How big are the circuit boards on those ElectroHarmonix pedals? I've often wondered why they use such big boxes for them. I'm a big fan of smaller boxes as I like a small, compact board. Would it be possible to re-house one of those into a smaller box, or is the circuit board itself large ?
Inside is actually a fairly large cicuit board, takes up about 2/3rd's of the enclosure. Also there is a stepdown transformer for the 110 wall plug and rectifier circuit to get it to 12V DC. If you eliminated the power section and were to use a 12Vdc adapter the board could be laid out smaller and that would probably fit in a smaller enclosure. A lot of there older effects were huge, but I see there newer line is more sub compact... Yea the blue led sounded better than a red or green one so I went with it... Actually the best part of the mod was the TB.
After the head scratching reading the schematic I finally figured it out and the actual mods were not that hard. I'm going to do another one for a friend and I'll take some pics of the actual connections. If you can solder then this isn't too hard. Gotta have a drill for the led install though.
