This could be useful to you:

Here's the document of the Pig Butt:

And here's the Mudbunny:

But I suggest a thing. The Mudbunny is based on the traditional transistor Big Muff, so you should search something about the "tone bypass mod" for the Big Muff.

I attached a schematic. It has two extra caps C15 and C16 for some reason I still am not understand, and an extra resistor, R28, to avoid a volume boost. Try to make some experiments.

Let us to know! ;)

A demo.

I saw just the Stratocaster part, until now, and it sounds to me a bit more Strat the the old standard.
I have a MIM Stratocaster Standard with stock pick up neck and middle. It sounds ok, single coil type, but not so Strat.

PS I bought my Stratocaster in the 2016. My Ibanez in the 2007. The Takamine in the 2014. Every guitar I bought was put out of production after two or three yearst. It's happening just to me?
Anyway, if I have to buy some other guitar I will warning you. Promise. :P

Did you see this?

I'm wondering if that is real or a joke.

Hi and welcome. 8)

Here we can get the build document:

Ok, it's a bit tricky PCB because it includes a bunch of mods and several version! So it's a bit difficult for us check it fine looking the picture.
Are you including some mods? I see at least two switches. Read well the instructions in case you have missed something, jumpers or extra parts.

I'm planning to build a Klon Centaur and a Tight Metal, in both the project I decided to use exactly the ICL7660SCPA.

Amazing pedal! ;)
What exactly is that plate? And how did you work it and got graphic and text on it? :o

Yeah, cool wiring! 8)

Anyway, about those caps... It will remain a mystery? :(

It looks very very nice! 8)

I can't understand how you got that look? Paint, decal... ???

Thanks. :)
Actually, I already built a ABY looper, and with my DIY pedals it works fine.
I still want to know something more about those caps. I am just curious. ;)

General Questions / Looper True Bypass, not so easy like it seems
« on: May 25, 2018, 01:33:02 AM »
Hi, I'm looking some layout of the some DIY True Bypass Looper, one loope effects.
This is the basic schematic:

I found the Keeley one's gutshot:

It' includes a pair of extra resistors. ???
I'd say those resistors are between tip and sleeve of the jacks Send & Return. Pull Down Resistors, just in case we need of them?
Confirm, please?

And then I found some kits that includes a pair of caps (looking at the size I'd say 100nF). I can't imagine the purpose. :(

Help, please.

Thank you! ;)

I didn't build it but I had all of these in my archive ;)
I saw my list and choose the ones that reminded me was nice or interesting. Some of them don't use just transistors, but it shouldn't use germaniums.

X-Fuzz's Deadastronaut -
Space Patrol Fuzz's Deadastronaut -
Devi Ever Hyperion -
Emanating Fist Black Acid -
Bearfoot FX Pink Purple Fuzz -
Jordan Bosstone (or KMA Fuzzy Bear) -
Wooly Mammoth -
Boss FZ-2 (or FZ-3) -
Roger Mayer Spitfire Fuzz -

I've always assumed that it needs to go inbetween the 9v supply and the positive leg to limit the current before it hits the LED.

Exactly what I've always thought! :o

Great! We will wait. ;)

[...] I don't think many people have tried it on guitar...but it seriously rocks. Worth looking into. Be warned though:  no other high gain pedals sound good after you try this one.

Then we want a demo of this pedal with the guitar. No, seriously, we really want it, now. ;D

Open Discussion / Re: WIMA caps at Tayda?
« on: May 13, 2018, 02:26:55 AM »
It's weird, ??? I don't hear too much talk about the bad quality of the electrical components, rather a kind of prejudice by someone, fully understandable, who want to buy good brand products. Though, I remain still perplexed about the low HFE of the NPN transistor. ::)
There are much of us that buy from Tayda, I guess. And much of us buy somewhere else.

I buy enclosures (just naturals at the moment) from the Europe to avoid to pay too much delivery taxes ordering from Tayda.

I'd glad some opinion about WIMA and Panasonic caps from Tayda, please.
