More work on the Scrambler!

The board immediately after etching & rinsing.
Four holes into the quixotic task of drilling the whole thing by hand.
Measuring the board in the enclosure.
Soldering at @gschoep's Learn to Solder Day.
Pure Lovecraftian horror.

Pictures! I haven't updated in a while, but have managed to put some time into the pedal.

Really, there's not a lot to say this time. I managed to solder everything in without significant injury. I also mocked up the housing, stuck everything together with alligator clips, and fired it up for a quick test. As expected, it sounds weird (see video.)

Next steps:
- prime and paint the enclosure
- finish the off-board wiring (including power switch & LED)
- stick the whole thing together and hope I haven't broken something in the interim.

Use Bacon font :D
Scramblers are one of the weirdest sounding pedals ever, a must have for everyone!

I was almost on to something.

I think you're onto something there.

Seriously, though. Maybe a pixelated fried egg would look good on the front. Either that or a Rider of the Nazgul. Because, you know, they're so similar.

I can't even begin to tell you how many times that mix up has happened with my egg mcmuffin.

I usually figure it out too late, once the screaming has started.
