This is the first thing that I built from scratch. I had circuit bent/modified a few things in the past, but those were mostly built for live use so very little evidence of that era of tinkering remains. Anyway, this is a Rat replica built on stripboard based on the schematic at General Guitar Gadgets.
The bathroom spray paint booth in my last apartment was not one of my better ideas. Due to repeated exposure to delicious enamel vapors, I can now hear corn bread. Small price to pay when you consider the results.
