Mostly mods for a lot of pedals but the BYO projects (only 4) look interesting...especially the treble booster, you have to buy the parts separate though

great selection of parts, kits, you name it...spoke with Ian on the phone today...great guy :)

btw the name of the company is Antique Electronic Supply

edit: I still cannot belive how quick my yellow jackets got her...if you need parts these guys are good, I was also told they are where most dealers get Jensen speakers, if they dont have something they will find it (I'm looking for grates like on soldano amps on the front).

It was THD that steered me to these guys when I was looking into the yellow jackets...funny how things work out huh?

Great source if you want to build pedals

http://www.mammothelectronics.com/category-s/22.htm

GGG sells their kits without the enclosures for at least 10 dollars less (I dont think BYOC does), these enclosures with drilling and paint will run you anywhere from about 11usd to maybe 17 or 18usd and if you opt out of the drilling and drill it yourself most guitar pedals for 11 usd or less depending on the paint.

So if you buy a kit and save 10 dollars by not getting a case at GGG really it's pocket change if anything all more to but the enclose from Mammoth nicely painted and ready for water slide decals or hand labeling. OTOH still if you get an enclosure by default like at BYOC it's not a big deal unless you're good at and enjoy painting.

They also have a lot of other stuff at good prices like mini toggles...sorry they wont allow posting of pics you can see the colors on their page.

Genius!

I could have done with some of those recently; was knocking up a really basic midi controller (pots & arduino) and trying to squeeze it all into an old computer backup tape case (ie. small plastic box). Resorted to electrical tape to insulate the board, didn't look great...
