Introduction: DIY "POD GX Studio"

About: Full time student in the Industrial Electrical Tech program. Wanna be redneck, driving my 93 ford ranger 4x4. Back yard mechanic... well heated garage mechanic in the winter. Avid DIYer, off road newbie. ...

In this instructable i'll show you how to make a POD from a 10$ rockband mic.  sorry for the crappy pics but all i had was my phone. Also i finished the actual device before i made the 'ible.

Step 1: Materials and Tools

Materials:
1 rockband microphone
1 enclosure (i used an old power supply)
wire
LED's of your choice (resistors too)
1 1/4" female jack
1 mini toggle switch
plexdiglass

Tools:
hot glue gun
soldering iron
solder
flat head screwdriver
pliers
drill
knife
"helping hands"

Step 2: Cut/sand Plexi and Sand LED's

the title says it all!!  after your done sanding the leds wash them off to get a better finish.  the plexiglass is just for an end cap because my enclosure didnt have one end.

Step 3: Drill Hole for the Switch

as the title says drill a hole slightly bigger than your switch in the side of the enclosure.

Step 4: Schematic/diagram

in the picture below it shows how to wire everything

Step 5: Finished!

congrats you are now done, also this is surprisingly good quality for a cheap device.  Note the recording attached is recorded with this device hooked up to the line out of my marshall vs100h valvestate amp. if you have questions please email me. i will try to get my dad to take better pictures so it is clearer (he has a good camera).
