Greetings from Stockholm, land of pirates! :horsey:

And speaking of pirates, here is a JHS pedal for you. The "Sweet Tea":
http://www.jhspedals.com/JHS_Sweet_Tea.html

The 808 side looks to be taken straight from Tonepad's "Griton" layout. I made an overlay image to show the exactness of the similarity:

The other side is maybe a Bluesbreaker? I could not discover a layout at tonepad or GGG that matches the other side.

Here are the photos from this pedal, which is dated manufactured in 2010:

The right side is a CrunchBox, I'm guessing. Layout looks familiar :scratch:
Build quality leaves a lot to be desired, too.

Looks like dimebug's layout... I'm not sure, but, reminds me a lot. But I'm pretty sure it is really a Crunch Box

these things are so shoddy, i have a hard time believe JHS has designed that analog delay I keep seeing prototype boards of. Analog Delay with Tap Tempo they say, not an trivial task.

I don't think so. I might check on my other 'puter which has some of the old DIYLC stuff I did. But, I kinda doubt it.

Brian, it definitely is one of yours. It's this one from the Crunch Box thread:

Yes, sorry, should have mentioned that. I tend to call people by real names once I've corresponded with them for a while.

@Duckman: yep, he just moved the trimpot to an external.

yup. Some people like to use it because you can cut with scissors. Not me, I want a thick board.

If you take that meaning, please don't cut mine with scissors :)
