I built this for my 13-year old son, who is getting really good at bass. Got a PCB from a user at Madbean, and set to putting it together a couple weeks ago. After realizing I needed a few special parts, I placed a Small Bear order and waited. When it arrived, I was bummed to find out that they had made a rare mistake and sent the wrong transistors. They corrected it, and fortunately the replacement parts arrived today, in time to get them installed. I had done all the drilling and decal work while I waited. I was lucky enough in my careful work to have made no mistakes, and it fired right up! A cool effect.

Notes on the build. It was my first time using a few parts: the XLR jack, the Lumberg I/O jacks, and the pre-wired momentary switch from Love My Switches. I like the Lumberg jacks a lot, but I probably won't get the pre-wired momentary again. It's 18-gauge wire, way too thick to use conveniently in a pedal build, as you can see from how I handled the wiring there. It took way more time than just wiring it normally would have taken.

He was pretty happy about it, and he's going to give it its first live test in church tomorrow! They rehearsed last night, but I wasn't able to be there to hear it. Definitely cool to have this musical connection with my son and to be able to make something him useful and fun. Cheers to BYOC, where it all began!

I got them from a user on the Madbean forums. They may still be available; check here. If you don't have an account over there or would like me to broker the deal for you, just let me know.
