Anybody had any experience with them? How do you rate them?

What do you mean, is there someone that offers this, or you mean building one yourself from scratch?

Hmm, I hadn't thought about that... I guess people could mean either a DIY job or a kit. There's a website that offers BYOC pedals, to near-ish replica's of vintage pedal effects.

Here's the site anyway - http://www.buildyourownclone.com/

I thought when people stated BYOC they meant that they used the kits from this site, but I guess people could also simply build the whole thing themselves.

I guess my question oculd apply to either smile.gif

From that site as far as I can see you get a kit that you assemble. All pieces put together would equal an original pedal.
Like the 250+ is a replica of DOD250, Mouse is Rat and so forth.

You'll get all the hardware and assembly instructions. Then round it off by paining the box smile.gif

About how to rate them. I have no experience from them. But since it's the same parts as an original pedal I guess it's all in your hands.

I haven't tried it, but it could be a nice little spare time project actually.

But as already mentioned I think it's all in the hands of the maker.
I think overheating the components will be the hardest thing *not* to do, but other than that it looks simple enough.

Could be a lot of fun - maybe a cheaper way of getting a TubeScreamer to boost the AC.1 smile.gif

I have done it myself, from scratch, distortion and and equalizer, they came out good, wasn't able to keep them at the time, because I did them on a breadboard, it wasn't a soldered pcb, so I disassembled them.

Didn't know someone sold kits

There's a lot of places that sell DIY kits. You just have to dig around them a bit. It makes some things a little easier than just downloading schematics and trying to source all of the parts and do it all yourself.

Beavis Audio has kits, but the kit that they call the "Beavis Board" is really interesting...it's a structured breadboard kit, with a pule of parts and some directions. allows you to develop and play with circuits on a breadboard and use/tweak them a lot easier. I'd have one already if I didn't have too many projects that I need to finish..

I've made my own pedals from scratch before that have turned out ok and sold them on to people who were willing to buy them. Electronics is easy, anyone can do it.
