Just finished my first three BYOC builds:
They all sound very nice in their own ways. Really liking the Dist + breakup, and the transistor fuzz of the ToneBender MKII. And I found (like others) that the decorating thing can take on a life of its own
The only problem I had was that they are all true bypass. Problem? When I have only one or any of these pedals in my loop I have volume drop and tone suck when bypassed. If I stick a buffered pedal in the loop with them the volume drop and tone muff goes away. It goes away if I use my Tiger with a buffer. I first noticed it with my tele- the sparkle and twang went away if the pedals were all bypassed.
I did some googling and find other people with the same problem, they all suggest sticking a buffered pedal or boost in a loop of only true bypass pedals. If I stick my Hotcake in there everything sounds fine when bypassed, and the Hotcake is dead quiet.
If your monitor cuts off the MKII try the photo tricks, I'll try and resize it.
On to the Divided Octave, Classic Delay, Phase Royal, and Tremolo kits.
