For me it went like this: three BYOC builds turned into 2 God City Brutalist builds - one stock one modded - turned into I think I can mod my Marshall a bit :teeth2:

You can do it!!!
Thanks mate, I think I’ll hold off modding my Marshall. If my wife saw me crack open an amp with a soldering iron in hand she’d be all like “ um honey, what are you doing...?”

I’m already thinking of my next project

For me it went like this: Bored at work at looking at the internet and came across this early pic of a ZVEX Super Hard On:

At the time I'd heard rave reviews of them from friends but the price tag was always a bit big for me. Seeing that it was this many components and that it could be done on perf or strip type board sold me. Hit up the Radio Shack downstairs from my office and bought enough things to kind of make a working circuit. I had no idea what a JFET was so I used a BJT with some other assorted stuff. I didnt know how to wire a switch or a battery but I made something that worked, which was enough to get me ordering real parts and making more things. Here's the original build, with toggles to turn on the battery and the effect:

That is so cool - necessity being the mother of invention. The rest is history I guess :oldgrin:

The SHO is a sweet arse box, thanks for reminding me that’s it’s something to put on my short list of things to build once I get my head around this stuff. I guessing easy and great result

I was momentarily confused by the thread title.
I thought you spoke conversational Australian (or Straylin), chank. “Having a crack” = “Giving a go” = “Making an attempt”. A “crack” can also refer to the vertical line between the buttocks, so it can get confusing. Still easier than learning Mandarin though.

I do, but sometimes I still get confused between this Oz:

Ok. So I build a simple booster thing and it worked so I’m pretty chuffed.
Next a on the menu is a fuzz face. Looking forward to this one 😀
