Shortly after sharing about my new mini-board (here), I acquired a Pluetoneum Chi-Wah-Wah V2 (careful…oddly nsfw) to complete and maximize the usefulness of my new mini setup. I didn’t really feel like posting about it, although I may do a more lengthy demo in the future. Other than that acquisition, it’s all been Boss mods and new complete builds.

The innards of this Sho ‘Nuff (I really don’t like this name) boost are the same as the one I previous posted about. As I was trying to fit the original one onto my board, I ran into an issue where the DC jack located on top was problematic. So I ordered another enclosure, redrilled all the holes, and moved the DC jack to the side. As you can see, I also went with a different color scheme, which I’m liking much more than the mint green w/ black knobs that I had before. It was too late for me to do any rearrangement on my board, but I’m fairly certain it will fit now.
