    Solder joints look fine. Nice and clean, no overflow or cold solder spots.

    Honestly, I had the same problem with mine so I put down a strip of electrical tape on the bottom of the board and another strip on top of the pots as a backup. Pretty tight squeeze.

    ^ Tremolo with tap tempo would be cooll! But i think josh is a busy bee ATM, and V!N has not been around the forum :(
    We are all very lucky to have this one made up, i really love mine and wouldnt trade it for quids. If there is another build im in in a nanosecond!

    I'd be willing to do one but there are several catches.

    1. Madbean is discontinuing a majority of his boards and that includes our Fatpants board. When he sells out, that's it. I'm sure he can have more made but I have no clue what that would do to the current cost. If you want a board now, they are on sale (I bought a bunch of them and other boards just in case I need them down the road)

    2. I'll be gone the most of the month of September, running around the country doing 'my thing'. Those who know what I do knows what that means. :dude:

    3. At some point-and I have NO idea when-I'll be out of town for about two months solid.

    V!N is around and I talk with him about once a week. I'm building him a Klon for his troubles with this project and a few others we have been toying with. He's very busy himself so he doesn't frequent the boards much unfortunately. If there was ever a guy that deserved "VIP" status, it's him.

    We have both received many emails concerning another group buy but with my stupid schedule, I can't commit to anything right now. Might take me a LONG time to complete it if we did.

    Put it this way, I've been so darn wrapped up in things, I've got two brand new (one custom built) amps in my house that I haven't even touched yet. Haven't even played a single note in over a month. :mad2:

    Between work, baseball (summer gig), work, family and finishing my latest hot rod, yeah...I've been burning up the hours.

    Thank god for energy drinks. :D

    No way dude. :thumb:

    I actually have your board and parts here and PPP should be delivering the darn enclosures any day. Guess their drilling times went up a bit so I'm sitting on my butt waiting.

    Shoot me a PM with the color, graphic and all that. I managed to delete all my PM's I saved so I lost what we discussed before.

    I knew when they renamed it "fatpants" it was a bad idea for them, should have had a mention of the echoplex in there somehow, thats what this thing does best, the fat part is just a bonus IMHO, i better get a backup board or 3 :D

    Me too! I feel like I've neglected my gear in a bad way. When my daughter gets home from her summer vacation, I am making it a high priority to not work so much and play way more!

    Has anyone compared the Fat Pants to a ClinchFX EP Pre or +? (JFet based 301 preamps with charge pump)

    I would be up for another one! I think a Klon would be a great idea! This one makes so much sense because mere mortals (I include myself here) will never get to experience what it sounds like otherwise.
