Germanium Little Bass Muff Pi

This is a birthday present for Neil from Seeland/Windscale.  It's the first time I have used Hammerite and waterslide decals.  Looks good but I made a slight error with the clearcoat which has wrinkled some of the top surface, lessons learned for the next time!  The pedal is a modified Little Muff Pi booster circuit, bigger input/output capacitors and an added gain control, plus I converted the whole circuit to positive ground and used pnp germanium transistors.  It's more of an overdrive than a booster now.  The circuit is done on tag board and using mostly cloth covered wire I recycled from a repair job.
