All right my friends, thanks to an unidentified mysterious cool guy;

Here we have some Cornsih pedal guts, you can't get to trace shit, but at least you can look at some good pedal porn.

Enjoy;

No man, I'm sorry, the pedal is not mine, I was just given the pictures by the owner.

I wonder if that cap from the input jack to ground is perhaps a short-circuit protector, so that instead of a full mains current a musician can only be accidentally shocked (via his guitar ground and most commonly a mic stand) through the capacitor instead of a straight wire. It could save a life(?)... This idea is also found in the guitar shielding site guitarnuts.com, where they recommend grounding your guitar hardware via a .33uf cap. This obviously does not protect you from the barrel of the input plug nor the jackplate of the instrument, though.

Hi,
I don't think a cap from input to ground can protect you from electric shock. But maybee that's a varistor? Correctly dimensioned it could provide some protection. Then maybe it's just a RF rejection cap....
Just my .02€!

The build is fine, the box is goddamn awful! Besides there's plenty of us here that make stompboxes built to this quality or higher anyways. Top quality stompboxes are nothing new in the DIY world.

Yep, but building something for the Mccartney's tour or David Gilmour is something different, no ?
Answer to the demands of these guys is an other dimension.

"Hi, i want a total analog tube buffered multi effect with his own cooling system"
How many guys in the world can do it properly ?

And being able to build top quality stompboxes and being able to build something like this:

quick question: what the hell is the "Stabilizer Unit" for? its bigger than my refrigerator! I guess big IS the new small. :D Seriously though, why would one need such a thing?

i think it's for stabilise the voltage, anywhere you are.

A high quality furman.

Maybe it gives energy when the general electric distribution is off.

Just a supposition

I could build a pretty crappy pedal that would withstand that tour no problem. Gear on those tours is taken care of very well. Builders should be more concerned with the weekend warriors who toss their own gear into the trunk and head to the gig. Thats much much rougher treatment than any of the big tours will give.
