Build your own pedal, without the soldering, drilling, painting, and all of the assembly needed to
make one from scratch.
With the ZVex Effects Inventobox you can quickly design, build and modify your own guitar pedals without
soldering! The Inventobox offers 2 different channels so you can build up to 2 different devices in the same stompbox.
includes all necessary components to make effect pedal construction easy for you. There are a variety of potentiometer values
and switches already inside the box, quickly accessible through tiny sockets which accept standard experimenter socket wires
or included cables. Easily open the Inventobox guitar pedal to quickly modify the circuitry.
4 basic components:
The enclosure with 4 permanently-mounted 100k potentiometers (rotary controls), a pair of 3-position switches, 5 multi-colored
LEDs, and 2 stomp switches with On/Off LEDs.
Inside the dual enclosure is a window which contains connectors to access
the input and output for channels 1 and 2, an LED work light to see the connectors more clearly, a 9VDC power connection,
and various connectors for the multi-colored LEDs and potentiometers.
The lid for the upper part of the enclosure which
contains 12 removable potentiometers (the order and values can easily be changed), 12 LEDs, and sockets which let you easily
hook up wires from your pedal circuit to the various controls and LEDs.
The lid also has a removable brass shielded
tray which contains an experimenter's socket where you build up your circuits.
The Inventobox has several unique design features which make it easy to use as well as road-worthy when assembled. The brass
tray provides electrostatic shielding between the bottom of the experimenter's socket and the potentiometers, eliminating
cross-talk and noise issues. The removable brass tray on the upper enclosure's lid allows access to 12 removable potentiometers
so you can easily set up the correct order for your pots, making the controls easy to remember. The design of the tray allows
you to put a securing rubber band around the tray's edge to keep all potentiometer and LED wires in place. This makes the
The security of the components and wiring is further enhanced by the use of one or more foam inserts
which rest against the inside of the upper enclosure, holding vital components in place on the experimenter's socket. The
lid locks in place on the two stomp switches for easy assembly when hooking up the cables to wire your circuit into the box.
Just set the lid upside down on top of the stomp switches to lock it in place. Also, there are two stainless rods that hold
the lid above the upper enclosure if you need to have it closer for easier wiring. Just slip the rods into the threaded screw
holes in the enclosure, then hook the bent ends onto the lid.
Other design features include labels on the brass tray
and potentiometers that describe connections and values, and a specially-designed circuit board that holds the pots in alignment
when changing the order for your designs.
There are a number of different cables included with the Inventobox which
provide a complete set of every type of wiring configuration you might need to connect your experimenter's socket to the inside
of the lower enclosure. They come in two lengths, 100mm and 150mm, making it easy to reach the experimenter's socket on either
the top or bottom.
