Fran Blanche is a self-described “corset maker, pedal designer, engineer, artist, musician, occasional radio DJ, subpar singer, and full time goofball” from Philadelphia who has, at least in the not-too-distant past, run a bespoke guitar FX business called Frantone. So much win.
There’s a lot of interesting stuff on her blog, YouTube channel, and design writings pages, but I’m especially taken by her “Shredcam” project design. You just need a small one-handed clamp, a scrap of aluminum angle, an HD webcam, and a few odd nuts’n'bolts. And the results are pretty spectacular. [Thanks, Fran!]
