I believe everyone has something that they can contribute to the DIY community. From technical knowledge, to mistakes you learned from, to plain old enthusiasm for seeing what other have created. I plan to use this space to present builder profiles. Where we can learn about what motivates them to build, what they have a would like to learn, what building has brought to their lives and learn about where we can find out more.

Questions I am thinking of asking:

Who you are:

  • Age, Location (City, State Country)
  • What is your relationship to music?
  • What is your background?
  • What got you started building pedals? When?
  • Is there anything else you would like known about you?

About your builds?

  • What is your favorite circuit / circuit type?
  • What is your favorite build technique?
  • What is your favorite way to finish your pedals?
  • What build are you most proud of?
  • What build did you find most difficult / challenging?
  • What would you like to try and build but haven’t yet? (No state secrets of course)
  • What do makes your pedals unique?

About Building and the Community:

  • What would you have liked to have known when you started? What would you tell yourself if you were starting today?
  • Is there anyone in the community that has had an influence on you? A mentor, friend, or community.
  • What has the DIY community given to you?
  • What contribution do you believe you bring to the community?


  • What forums are you on and how are you known?
  • Do you have social media you would like people to know about? (Instagram, Facebook, Youtube, Reddit, Tiktok, etc.)
  • Do you have a website?
  • What resources should people know about? (Blogs, pages, etc)
  • Favorite place to get parts?
  • Favorite place to purchase PCBs?
  • Other favorites:
    • Find rare NOS
    • Get PCBs Manufactured
    • Get enclosures, knobs, type of paint, anything really

I know I have probably missed a lot but really anything that you would like others to know.
