Build Reports / Re: EQD Dirt Transmitter - A De-build Report

Very nice work!
I'd think C2 should be flipped since the input is at ground potential and the base of the first transistor is biased with positive voltage.

That was my thought too, but the negative side of that cap definitely goes to the base of Q1.

R1 doesn't seem necessary, either, being in parallel with the Dirt pot.

Bring only one pedal and make sure it is an HM-2.

Have a look at the tutorial on footswitch wiring (last entry on the page): http://www.madbeanpedals.com/tutorials/index.html

Once you read that, you should have a pretty good idea of what to do. If not, ask questions!

The only thing that keeps me from buying either is lack of stereo output. I'd love to try out the Canyon.

That is some fantastic work. Shoot, even I don't have the guts to attempt something so ambitious! You should be very proud of your work. And, keep those pics...I sense a good build of the year contender here :)

Yeah man I was worried, I assumed you are self employed, how bad it would be. Itís stories like these that make me realize how lucky I am that my company provides really good health insurance. Though it could be a ploy to keep people from leaving.

We get insurance through my wife's company but the plan gets worse ALL THE TIME. I think our deductible is like $5k a year now.

BTW, for all those non-Americans who are curious: my ER visit which included a CT scan, EKG, blood test, zero medication and BP monitoring all done in about 2.5 hours (and probably less than 7 minutes with an actual doctor) came to over $2500 WITH insurance. Without: over $10k. That's how fucked up the USA is.

ok, I'll bite. what is that mahooosive board on the top left?

That's the MicroSynth. Probably not a project I would offer on the regular but something I want to attempt to build.

great to hear you are feeling better! don't overdo it now and lay low for a bit. Focus on getting back to 100%, before going back to your daily routine

How can I not overdo it when I have all this to play with?

Yes that switching will work. But your schematic shows the LED directly connected to ground, not switched to ground.

Check for continuity b/w lug1 of the Volume pot and ground first. Show a pic and or voltages as well.

For the record, it appears paypal's price for the Sharkfin is 1$ more than the price you have listed on the store page

(Not a big deal, consider my buck a donut donation, but thought you should be aware)

Thanks. Just fixed it.

I want to say thanks again for all the well wishes over the past week or so. It's meant a lot to know so many people took the time out to write messages. I am feeling a lot better than I did a month ago when this started. Blood pressure is mostly under control and the bad head pressure has improved (although it does continue to be a problem). Anyway, I'm about 80% back to normal which is enough to get back to regular activity level.

The store has been re-stocked. It will still be a few more days before the Uber Tuber is released, though. I hope to have it available on Monday or Tuesday.

The following items are on sale: Deathklaw, Dirtbaby, Total Recall and Collosalus.
Blowout sale (deep discounts) on BaconBits, DigDug2, Sharkfin and Tapanator Bundle. The blowout sale items are not going to be carried regularly once they are gone so this is the last chance to get those for a good while.

Lastly a change to the RoadRage: it is now sold as a single board rather than two together. However, there is an option to purchase a panel of 6 for a 20% discount. The panel requires you to break them apart but it's easy to do (it's v-Scored).

General Questions / Re: LDR for a vtl5c4/2 ?
« on: May 31, 2018, 10:53:46 AM »
You aren't going to find anything like the 5C4/2 at Mouser. This is an effect where the designated part is pretty much a must and unfortunately the sources have dried up over the last year or so. Pedalpartsandkits had some for $13 for a while and those are gone it seems. Wish I could be of more help. Actually, at this point I might as well discontinue the Sawse (I've only got a few boards left anyway) since the cheapest I'm seeing the 4/2 is like $20.
