Custom Overdrive - My own personal pedal

Well this is something that i've been meaning to do for myself for a little while but haven't really gotten around to due to various reasons.

It also worked out quite well as an experiment in labelling enclosures which turned out far better than I expected it would for the first real attempt.

The pedal itself is the same pedal that I made for Ole which was a one off custom order that I was so pleased with that I just had to make one for myself.

The circuit takes a fair amount of influence from the Fulltone OCD V3 and the Maxon OD808. The 'Cut' switch isn't the HP/LP switch like on the OCD rather it removes the low end below 100hz cleaning up the sound more and helping the guitar cut through easier.
