I made some minor changes in layout. I prefer lying electrolyte.

got mine all boxed up today. it would've been a lot easier to wire up with board mounted pots but it sounds great just the same. I also added a relayed true bypass.

Holy 5hit John!! That's awesome!!!

Did you paint the enclosure yourself?
How did you get that image on the enclosure? It's the same as the original talons!

Good job my friend!

yes, but it's modified to use a different, smaller relay.

You know what would be really cool?
Designing a relay PCB that could be used with Moment-spdt pcb-mounted switches like these:

or these dpdt:

That would be uber cool!

BTW andregarcia, where can I find your design in OSH site?

any good clear injet decal paper will work (I used VitaCal) and then used nitro lacquer over it, shot with a spray gun.

@andregarcia

have you read my message about the missing link? Havent heard from you...

There is a missing link on your PCB (OSHPark), one side of the clipping led pair is not connected to anything.
Cheers!

It's easy to overcome this, just solder a piece of wire on the back of the PCB linking 2 points, but I think I should mention it.

hello ...
I think in the drive potentiometer, there really is no connection of the pins

I did this one a long time ago. Meant for a 1590B, but you can fit it in most enclosure sizes with a bit of cleverness.

It's not the drive pot. That pot has pin3 unconnected, like in the schematic, and it's correct.

I am talking about the led pair.
Check the red line on the following image. That's the missing link.
