DIY Guitar Pedals Enclosure/Project Idea Library

If you're looking for ideas/inspiration for a unique enclosure for your project, you've come to the right place! Ideas and pictures on this page are contributed mainly by members of DIY guitar stompboxes groups and communities on G+, Facebook, Reddit and other forums. Some projects have also been handpicked from the internet without which, this list would be incomplete. Want to feature your pedal in this list? Click here.

Out of the Ordinary Enclosures-

1. Merry Christmas OverDrive

Merry Christmas OD from Mean Machines FX Pedals. Its a transparent overdrive that uses  sound to light up LEDs. The Christmas tree lights up to the rhythm of the music!

2. Glow In Dark Fuzz Face

Germanium fuzz face clone with glow paint, sounds like a piece of moon rock!
Built by George Robins.

3. The 1954 Transparent Fuzz Pedal/ Patent Pending

A boutique transparent fuzz pedal by screaminfx.
See all the tone making glory in the actual pedal.
A sizzling addition to any pedal board! 

4. The Complete picture

Planning to build pedals on a large scale? Here's an idea for the pedal maniacs!

5. The Quick builds

At times, cheap enclosures from reusable tins and vessels make just the perfect housing for 'on the go pedals'.

Pedals with an expiry date? Yes! Being too environment friendly while building pedals and audio electronics can result in products with expiry dates!
This coconut for instance has been exploited-

6.  Deluxe Strat Booster

" Are you sure, this is the complete thing?" 
The ideal pedal for every Strat lover. 

7. Need I say?
If not strat, this is what you probably like.

8. Wooden Enclosures?

Tired of 1590's ? Wooden crafted enclosures may be very taxing to make and require woodworking skills, but are surely feasible for those who can!

9. Danelectro Series
Perhaps better known for their economy Mini series, Danelectro has released some beauties over the years. The sixties-inspired collection: a reverse delaysitar emulatortalk-box and flanger have a really characteristic appealing look that makes them stand out of the crowd!

10. The Plymouth Vibe

A Magnavibe, built into a model car. 
"More affordable muscle cars in different colours  are yet to be added to my pedal board fleet"
Created by Tom Williams.

The Lady Buzz-
 A portable, transistor radio converted into a guitar pedal, by Mark Davis.

Concrete FUZZ
Concrete stands out in the silicon jungle. A unique low gain fuzz with a buffer pedal by Cory Pierce.

Clean Text Art-
A neat Feedbacker Fuzz by Adam Jóźwiak. Blackened oakwood and electro-etched aluminum plate. Goes from clean to slaughter of the innocents.

Occvlt Dope Fuzz-
Mighty fuzz which makes your riffs open the gates of hell and bring down the river of demons, black magic, drugs and blasphemy!  By Occvlt Pedals - Handmade Guitar and Bass Stuff.

5 Effective Online Tools that will Spice up your Arduino Projects!

Arduino has made electronics projects easier than ever. The question now is- Can we make the process of building projects faster and more enjoyable? Let's have a look at some of the interesting softwares/online tools developed for the Maker Community to make tinkering more effective and documenting projects easier!

1. TinkerCad

TinkerCAD's recently created circuit simulator allows you to arrange your Arduino/Attiny circuits in an easy 'drag and drop' environment and test them virtually without having to make them. This can be really helpful, for testing projects that use components which you are yet to buy. And after all, who doesn't like tinkering?

Try out Tinkercad-Circuits here!

But that's not what Tinkercad is famous for. It offers an amazingly easy to use 3D design tool for Makers, once again in a simple 'Drag and Drop' interface! You can directly download the CAD file, once you're done designing. If you've ever thought of making your own uniqu…

TV Remote Controlled Servo Motor-Using Arduino!

We use our TV remotes to control the functions of the TV's, but when the TV is not in use, they're absolutely useless. Today, we are going to learn how to add more functionality to ordinary IR based remotes, in this one we shall see how to control servo motors. There are so many (SO MANY) different applications of this project that one can think of. Using the following tutorial, you can make one yourself!

1. Watch the video tutorial-

2. Things you will need-

Note that you may use a different IR receiver other than TSOP1738, if it isn't available. Usually you can find this on websites like amazon and ebay.
3. The circuit diagram!

4. The IR Remote Library
5. The Arduino Code- Just copy paste this code into your Arduino IDE

// Written by Siddharth Kothari, Enjoy your journey Exploring Arduino!#include <IRremote.h>#include <IRremoteInt.h>#include <Servo.h>intRECV_PIN=11;//IR receiver pinintgndIR=10;/…

NetBeans Java project- TIC TAC TOE (AI) - logic explained

This article covers the basic concept of how you can implement basic AI in you game, i.e allow the computer to compete with you, giving it equal chances of winning. It's worth a thought what makes the computer invincible in a human vs computer chess game?

A common notion is that programmers code for every single possibility in the game considering all permutations and combinations etc. However this is far from reality. We can instead make the computer go by the 'Human thought process ' for every move. Lets consider a simpler approach to the popular TIC-TAC-TOE game.

Try out TIC TAC TOE here. (500 Kb executable .jar file)

Coming to the TIC-TAC-TOE GAME. This project is a great exercise for beginners to get a hang of basic logic used in games and other applications.
The logic behind the computer's moves is simpler than you think. To begin with, lets see the logical flow of code before getting into the 'code'.
Here's how the code works-

After every move yo…
