Things of note. This thing sounds WAY better running from a 12v PSU. Where on 9v it's not very tolerant of humbuckers and is prone to distortion, that all goes away. However, it REALLY doesn't like having a charge pump in there to do it. So you have to go with a real external PSU and re-bias it for it. Totally worth it though, it's the best I've heard one of these sound.
Ooh good info. I just built one, ill have to try it

Clever use of a looper box. looks great! You're blasting through these builds before you take off huh?
Pretty much. It helps that I haven't had much troubleshooting in my recent builds and a lot of them were already half finished. But yeah, doing a years worth of building in 3 months haha.

Crazy build, goo job! Do you possibly have spare set of these photocells? It's last thing I need to finish my builds, nearly finished PCBs are collecting dust since last winter lol ;)
i have lots of photocells but not the particular ones called for. I bet the trem and wah are not too picky about ldrs. The phaser on the other hand has a very small range where it works correctly

Clean as ever! Nice work!

Could be a charge pump issue. Which one did you use?

Build Reports / Tapanatorator combo!
« on: September 20, 2017, 07:37:52 PM »
So I had one of the long thin looper boxes and decided to put the tapanator and accompanying effects in it as I'd never built anything in one of those and it sort of screams for a combo. I'm not sure it's the most user friendly setup but I like. Lots of room in the box. For the trem and wah I made switchable so that I can have all three in a combo pedal with the ability to control an external effect, either/or type situation obviously. The only glitch with this setup is that if the trem isn't bypassed it will mute everything when the lfo is not connected to it as the led goes dark. Not a big deal. I had some trouble with the phaser though I think part of it was I didn't have the trimmer in the right position. I got it mostly working but the feedback control seems a bit off. Anyway, really cool effect! 8) guts are a bit chaotic but functional.

Is that fuzz from Fuzz Dog an Astrotone by chance? Hope I'm remembering the name correctly...
Yup thats the one!

That finish looks great, one of a kind! Nice cram job! I probably couldn't get 6 pots in a 1590a without a circuit in there...

Just remove the white washer of death. Problem solved! Haha I think blms has metal stomp washers that might be a bit smaller

Not bad at all to take apart. I was overly cautious when I took it apart but it seems pretty sturdy. Even if I don't decide to mod it, it will be nice how much less space it takes

Very cool! I like the led on the fuzz dog one, haven't seen one like that before. How did you get the hammered texture on that one?
I got it from another builder a while ago. Not really sure where it came from unfortunately but it looks great! I have a bunch of LEDs like that If anyone else wants to use a few I'd probably just send them for the cost of shipping (US only)

I recently threw these two together. The big game fuzz is one of flanagan's fuzzlewump pcbs and the other one is something from fuzzdog which I don't remember. If anyone really likes the indicator led on that pedal send me a pm. I have a bunch of them. This is about as clean as the guts get on my builds...

Looks great.  How did you finish the enclosure?
I used alcohol ink to stain the sticker and cover the box and for the labels. Then I used mod podge to seal in the ink and clearcoated.
