So, I’ve been wanting to mess around with pedal building for a while now and decided this holiday break would be the best chance I had for a few days off to spend learning.  I ordered a beginner level kit from BYOC, a clone of the Marshall Bluesbreaker Overdrive.  It wasn’t a bad build, although I did run into a few issues and enlisted some help from the pro’s on the BYOC forum to help me out.  I had to double back a couple times to clean up solder joints and messy wiring, but all in all not too bad.  Two days later and several strange glances from Kelly in the other room… and it finally fired up!    Not my favorite pedal, but this definitely got me going.  Now to decide what the next build should be…
