Frequently Asked Questions
Do you ship internationally?
Absolutely! International shipments are a flat $4.00 per order no matter how many PCBs you buy. Shipping will be automatically calculated during checkout after you enter your address information.
To help cut down on shipping costs and customs fees, international orders are shipped in plain white hand-lettered envelopes via USPS first-class mail. These allow me to keep my shipping charges very low, with the added bonus that they also tend to arrive much more quickly than normal packages—on average, 12 to 14 days to Canada, Europe and Asia, and 18 to 20 days to Australia. The downside is that there is no tracking information for international shipments, but in over a year of doing this I have only had maybe four or five packages lost. (In the event that it does get lost, I’ll mail out a free replacement after 20 days.)
I built a pedal with one of your DIY boards and it’s not working. Can you help?
Before offering them for sale on the site, I personally build all of my PCB projects and verify them to be correct in their original or stock configuration. Variations and modifications in the build document are provided as suggestions only and I do not test all of these—however, I do a lot of research to make sure that I’m using verified and accurate schematics when I supply the component lists for these variants. That said, if you do notice what appears to be an error, please let me know!
I can’t offer or guarantee direct support for these projects, but if you post a question on the DIY Stompboxes forum, you may get a response from me or—even better—one of the many folks there who are far smarter than I am! Make sure to include the “common” name of the pedal in the title (e.g. Tube Screamer instead of Stratus) as this will get more responses, along with a link to the schematic or build documentation.
Will you have a DIY project for [X expensive pedal]?
In general, I am not going to try to make money by selling clones of other folks’ original designs, so my projects are circuits that are the DIY scene’s equivalent of public domain. However, if a commercial pedal is only a slightly tweaked version of one of these “public domain” circuits, I may include instructions on how to make that variant using my board.
That said, from time to time I may offer “special edition” PCB projects for sale in limited quantities, but they will not be a permanent part of my stock.
