About the Grind Custom’s Collective

unicorn

Grind Customs is the brainchild of Réj. When he’s not welding stuff in -60 degrees temperatures up north, he likes nothing better than building his post apocalyptic battle wagon, just to be ready for the inevitable zombie infestation. When not doing either of these things, he runs Grind Customs FX. An entity that mainly exists to supply the DIY effects community with cool PCBs to build stuff on. It truly is a collaborative effort though and there are several others who help out and generally take part in the spreading of the awesome.

GCFX was born in 2011 with the release into the world of the Chimaera V1 PCB. The DIY world rejoiced and there was merriment. It is written that in 2012, CJ approached Réj and a dastardly duo was formed to propagate PCBs in a more determined manner. Many nights were spent committing acts of the most depraved PCB alchemy. Though he didn’t mention maniacal laughter, you know it happened. This did not go unnoticed. Over time more were attracted to the collaborative entity that Grind had become. Soon Pickdropper, Juansolo and Cleggy were on board. Not long after followed by Jubal. Last through the door was Selfdestroyer and Chuckbuick.

The Team

Master CJ
Master CJ
A technical ninja with PCB skills that strike fear into his enemies. It has been suggested that there’s nothing he cannot DIY and that he can vanish just by clenching his buttocks really hard.
Pickdropper
Pickdropper
He has a very particular set of skills. Skills he has acquired over a very long time. He will put things in tiny boxes, he will laser etch them spectacularly and he will make everyone in the DIY community feel quite inadequate.
Jubal81
Jubal81
He mostly designs PCBs and plays guitar. Mostly.
Juansolo
Juansolo
I’ve done a lot of the documentation because, generally speaking, I like the sound of my own text. When I’m not building effects pedals I’ve been known to play with race and sports cars. I also like pie, quite a lot.
Cleggy (Marauder)
Cleggy (Marauder)
Cleggy is the toobmeister and a bit of a ninja troubleshooter. He has also been decorating. As a man with no sense of style whatsoever, this can be a somewhat random affair. Though he has surprised me on more than one occasion by buying coordinating curtains and lamp shades! I can only conclude it’s a sign of the coming apocalypse.
Selfdestroyer
Selfdestroyer
Web master, coding wizard and acid etching warrior. Has a fondness for mountains and walking on them. Because he can.
Chuckbuick
Chuckbuick
A SMD fetishist with an obsession for PCB design.
