I didn't plan on building a Tube Screamer anytime soon, but when I was drilling holes in the PCB for the MAPE build, it snapped right in half! Since I only had just enough 808s to fill the orders, we ended up with an unused TS808 enclosure.

I had just bought a couple of 1980 JRC4558D ICs and had a bakelite perfboard lying around too, so the idea was born to rebuild the whole pedal old school style with some cool vintage components I’ve got in my reserves.
