    Shielding?
    WARNING: TC Electronics Pedals Are NOT REPAIRABLE. Instead of fixing my switch they wanted to charge me $72 plus shipping on a $99 pedal to replace all electronics, when only the switch was defective. This is their blanket repair policy on ALL repairs. They have no replacement switches. The switch is on the board so substituting a different switch can't work. Do not buy pedals from companies that cannot repair their own switches.

        My exact thoughts when I opened the image up and looked at it were "those look nice, but the only trouble is, you have $%^& for shielding" - although to be fair, we don't know if they're lining the wood inside with something like copper foil for that purpose...

          The inside has a coating of carbon spray then a coating of nickel copper spray for continuity. The box has been put through it's paces and there have been no RF or oscillation issues.

              They do look cool and so long as they are shielded they should work.

              My main concern would be durability. A little extra weight can push a foot switch through the wood, the boxes can wear any paint off quickly or even crack the boxes. Using a poly clear coat for durability should be something to think about. You'll likely have to check the nuts that hold the Jacks and switches because the wood will compress and they will be constantly loosening up. They use jack plates on guitars for just that reason. Using some hot glue on the inside might help. I'd definitely get some of those ground connect washers with the solder lugs and run a backup ground wire to all the jacks and switches not just use the conductive paint.

              Other then that they are quite unique. Hope they work out for you.

                    Nah. You don't know what it is or how much it costs. It's like a pretty girl friend ...... You may like showing her off but don't think think you're going to touch her.
