DIY effects pedals vs Commercial

Postby mike » May 4th, 2014, 2:30 pm

I would like to know what you people are thinking when you compare DIY effects pedals with those commercial stompboxes... Are you saving money doing DIY ? Do you have better sounds when you build your own pedals ? I think that DIY is giving me more flexibility, exactly what I want with my guitar effects. I really love to build diy fuzz box because they are simple and I can learn much from them, but what about more complex circuits...

:thanku:

Most DIY and commercial circuits overlap somewhat.. going as far as some commercial circuits being just ripoffs of DIY circuits. So no, there is nothing intrinsically better about a commercial pedal of any kind over a DIY pedal :roll:
