    POLICE DISTORTION - BOSS OS-2 MOD(DIY) - with YouTube samples

    Hey Girls and Guys,
    I am new on this Forum. I am looking for people that would like to help me to improve my projects giving me some comments, tips and tricks (and who can do this better than Metalguitarist).
    I love building stompboxes and now I would like to show you something (maybe) interesting.
    I am counting on interesting tips and comments in this Thread!!
    I would like to present you one of my DIY mods of effect pedals. This time it came to totally broken Boss OS-2 which got a second life and turned into POLICE DISTORTION.


    - because I have painted it darkblue (like old European Police Cars)
    - because it has blue and red light on the top of it (which are glowing whenewer you play)
    - because if it stops you - It really stops you for days.

    Here are some photos:

    I also need to say that it has not only lightning LED DIODES but also a 1cm hill which is glowing as well.
    Why?? Because for this modification it was neccessary to make an additional layer of PCB! (Double layered electronic).
    Which I made "of course" by myself (with a small help from my colleagues)

    The hill looks like that and it glows whenever the Stompbox is ON, so that you can find it in any circumstances in darkness or at the rehersals.
    The hill is done from glass fibre reinforced polymer (the only material I had in this time).

    As you can see it is a bit higher than real BOSS Stompbox (but it has also much bigger Transistor 2n2219 and more diodes).

    Here some other photos of this Stompbox:

    If you are more interested about how it sounds, please, visit this ling to my First YouTube Video:

    I am always happy to receive some tips, tricks, or comments, so that I can do next film better.

    If you need an additional information about this modification (schematic, additional samples, simulations) just write me a message on my facebook fanpage.
    You can also ask about modification of other pedals, guitar wiring, stombox building, etc. I am always ready to answer an interesting question!
    Maybe You can - like always - learn me how to build your own Pedal and help me with my problems… - than let’s do this together!!!
    I will be glad to receive some feedback from You.

    Here is my Facebook Fanpage adres:

    Hope You will Enjoy It.

    I'm not going to delete this because some people might find this interesting. But you need to ease up on the self-promotion and trying to get activity through your Facebook and YouTube pages, and instead try and engage with the people here in a more natural way. You might find people are interested, then. But if you just cross-post like you're currently doing and just spam us, at best you'll get ignored, and at worst you'll have your thread deleted and you'll be banned.

    The video looks great, great guitar, nice looking amp, but the tone sounds awful It also doesn't sound like it's double-tracked, as the video claims (if it is, they're both down the centre instead of panned left and right).

    Thanks for comment.

    Yes they are panned left and right.
    I need to think It out where the problem is - Maybe someway In export of medias.
    will figure it out!

    Dear Cassidy,
    I thank You for your understanding.
    If you will se how people get other people engagement it is exactly the way I had done it.
    You need at first to build a net of people they are interested what a person you are and what you are doing to get someone to cooperate.
    I am looking for someone to cooperate.
    But for now.
    I am just a grey person - looking for other people similar to me, interested in doing something together.

    If you are annoyed by this topic, and cannot understand the purpouse of adding it here - I please you wholeheartedly to delete IT.
