Designing and building your own guitar effects is a great way to combine a passion for electronics and guitar.  However, when testing new designs, I found the fragile circuit on the solderless breadboard was difficult to connect to patch cords and control the potentiometers.

The answer was simple: build a guitar pedal just for prototyping!

A thoroughly sturdy design, including a custom cut/drilled & folded aluminum enclosure with standard hole sizes for swappable pots and switches. Check out the project’s instructable for details.
