Tube Screamer clone kit from BYOC

I recently built a clone of Ibanez's Tube Screamer overdrive pedal, from a kit made by Build Your Own Clone. I also did a tremolo pedal kit, but I didn't take any pictures of the building process.

There's not really much to tell, because I was just following their directions-- yeah, I'm a hacker-wannabe. It turned out to be a really enjoyable project though, and it only took me two evenings to do. The tremolo only took one evening, I assume because I knew what to expect and it's a simpler kit. Hopefully these will open the door to more "personalized" DIY guitar projects in the future.

Oh, and how do they sound? Amazing, I must say. I'd post a sound clip but then you'd have one less reason to come to a YLS show. :)

Anyway, here are some pictures:
