    Mister Burns brought just brought the total to eight, so we're getting there. :) When will you leave ? A big update with all the information about prices and whatnot will be posted within the next couple of days. Possibly tomorrow if all goes well.

    I would be down but I am 13 with no money, and am terrible with soldering on small things. (the smallest I can do is guitar pots lol.) But I cant wait to see and hear how these little things turn out! Great idea V!N!

    You're wise not to jump in then. If you can get some chores done on your guitar and some mods on pedals of your own, perhaps even order a little kit somewhere else, you might prepare yourself to join us on one of the next projects. :)

    The big update will be delayed until at least Monday. I'm having a bit of trouble with the template for the 1590A (mini enclosure) as there's no way I can test-fit things. We'll be using a PCB mounted pot so the board will stay in place so that will leave little margin of error in such a tiny enclosure.

    To drill them yourself is a bit risky, as it's very easy to chip the finish. Trust me, you'll be astonished by the options for finishes. :) The last thing you want to do is chip them.

    Everybody will be able to choose the finish individually and I will offer a free custom design of the label for everybody who wants one ! Below, there's a teaser shot of the base that I designed. I will use this to match the colour of your wishes and create my design, based on your input. You'll get a pretty good idea of what it's going to look like when you receive it.

    Good question ! I'm struggling a bit with the costs for shipping to various places. Hopefully, more about that later on.

    A brief and exciting update !

    I just got word from the supplier of boards. He send off a design for prototyping for a double sided PCB with solder mask ! This will be better fit for a 1590A mini enclosure than the previous handmade boards. I will receive a template soon. :)

    For something this small and lightweight...around 12 USD. I would use a small box but wrap the whole thing in foam for protection.

    I think I should honestly just buy one off of you guys since I obviously have NO soldering experience, but I support you all and would like to buy one :)

    We can work that out. I'm available to build it for you before I ship but I'm pretty busy so it will take me a few days to get to it after it gets here. I'm out of town the first two weeks in September too. Baseball tournament. :thumb:

    Been on the fence since this started but count me in!

    I think the name should honor the gent with the idea, something like "V!N-Boost"
