From diy stompboxes

Very bad hammond style boxes

Unfortunately I managed to pick up some real stinkers. They weren’t even that cheap – about £4.50 each, I got 4, the first one I used was alright, took quite a bit of sanding. The other 3, 2 are mostly unusable, one is probably fine with a bit of sanding.

Stick to what you know folks! I am going to just use Eddystone boxes I think now, or the 125b’s from Tayda for things a bit bigger.

in the interest of naming and shaming – it’s this seller here and this is the actual item. I have contacted seller but heard nothing back from him.
