General Questions / Re: Rebote 2.5 vs Deep Blue Delay
« on: December 02, 2018, 12:09:10 PM »
I built the Rebote Delay 2.5, I never had any delay pedal, but I think it isn't so bad.
I'd like to have a PT-80 but I use to build on stripboard and I think it is too complicated to have a veroboard layout.

Thanks, but... UK? The build manual is in German language! ???

I'm trying to select every schematic I found, then I see what I can draw.

We should try to pick up all the schematics we found, if nobody already do it before, to draw a sort of multi version schematic. It will be pretty easy if the changes are only in value or in some component in or out.

Heh, Crowther already beat you to the double Hotcake!

I didn' know it! :P
I just can't get completely why that third Drive control acting just when A and B are both turn on, and the A Drive pot is switched off... or something like that... I don't know. I'll search more information about it.

Aentons, if you find different schematic, or different value, try to socket it for some tests. I did it with Big Muff, and I'll do it for the OCD.

I don't know the Hotcake so well, just a friend of mine says that it is very transparent. He has a new original one, I guess.

Myabe is not what you want, but what about a double pedal version including both the circuit? A sort of King of Tone style but with the Hotcake. :)
Could be a good idea for somebody else.

General Questions / Re: Engineer's Thumb: Is this issue normal?
« on: November 19, 2018, 02:33:16 AM »
I really can't see where the mistake could be, I'll do the pictures, but I can do it maybe tomorrow.
I built over 27-28 circuits using the stripboard.

I built just one board, and I changed the Tayda's IC because I suspect it was bad. But nothing changes with a new one from Musikding. THe really weird thing is that I got some years ago the same issue with another LM13700 building an DOD FX25 auto wah. It had a loud attack and a loud tail. I dismess it and I used that LM13700 to build a Snow White, it worked, except the decay pot.

Sabrotone layour is verified, there's even the image of a pedal built. I really can't imagine what is the mistake, indeed, I imagine there's no mistake.
Probably I'll try it on breadboard, if I can trust of my breadboard, it's really cheap, I could try to build it again, but with new parts, I guess I can use the LM13700 and the transistor, and the pots. But I am really disconsolate about this effect. And I can't understand how I could get the same issue with the same IC but a different effect. ???

Hello guys, I'm really disappointed, mad and desperate with this effect. I replaced the Tayda's LM13700 with a Musikding's LM13700 (it looks printed finer), but the problem persists.
It's like a big boost that causes a really too loud initial attack and the snap when I disengage the effect.
I tried even to replace the BC327 with another one bought from Musikding. But nothing.

Hi, I'm sorry, I forgot to write here that I solved the problem. I misunderstood the istructions and I soldered a wrong wire on the gain pot.
The pedal sounds really good. I just notice that the buffer, in bypass mode of course, cut a little bit of some treble.

Tech Help - Projects Page / Re: Fat Pants Jr Boost J201 sub recommendation
« on: November 13, 2018, 02:34:36 AM »
I think the smd version and that mini pcb are the only one solution we have got. The J201 we used often until a few years ago are difficult to find. I never used the smd because I still have about three pieces in my stock, but soon I'll have to use the J201 smd.
I'm pretty sure that's ok and more accurate than the old (it's already vintage?) one. ;)

Waiting for further opinions.

General Questions / Re: Fear of the ground loop (Morley ABY MIX style)

Meanwhile, I found this project:
http://byocelectronics.com/ampselectorinstructions.pdf
This has two input :), but I have to find out if I can send the two inputs both in one amp, or if it's impossible to join the two sources.

I ordered a new LM13700 from Musikding. Waiting to test it. ::)

I also ordered some stuff I usually order from Tayda.

Bump, I need some help, please. :)
I hope is clear enough what is the problem.

Thanks!
