Build Reports / OCD....
« on: September 23, 2018, 03:34:04 AM »
Gudday all.  A friend of mine, who I've already built a stack of pedals for (Harley's Hammer, Phatboy, Hyperactive Overdrive, et al) saw my Dangerzone and said he wanted an OCD with the same artwork....

I tried his OCD (V4, I believe.  He sold it later on for whatever reason) with my gear a while ago, and I wasn't impressed.  Building this (V3 rev2) hasn't improved my opinion of it.  Might go better on single coils, but it just doesn't have the top end I like and sounds flubby with my gear.

Surely it would have to be equal between the Tubescreamer, Big Muff, with the Gov'ner a distant third...

I'm not a Gibson fan at all, but I hope videos like this help turn things around for them.  The guitar looks solid.

Great job.  I look at those and think, "Yeah, maybe I'll just buy the Behringer version."

I had a similar issue with a Cavedweller, on pcb, and on vero.  Then I had the same issue with a Rebote on vero too.  I dunno, I just couldn't get the bloody things to do more than a couple of repeats at decent volume.  Wouldn't get any oscillation either.  Finally built a mimik on pcb and got a working delay...  I've built a number of delays on vero and pcb before that have worked fine, so I don't know what was going on (and I couldn't fix them either)...

I've fitted a klon and a comp into a 125b (look the build reports for "Lightspeed"), and that required sandwiching the boards back to back.  I wouldn't bother with a 1590b, they're smaller again.

You should be able fit a Little Angel and an Afterlife into a 125b easy enough - although the LA is hardly a CE-2 in terms of chorus imo.

You'll fit them into a BB in portrait easy enough imo (I've done stacks of multis in BB), but an NS or XX (also in portrait) would be best.

I hate it when I step on my weener.

Tony Peper's finger wrench socket things are the schnitz for doing up nuts safely.  Those and whatever the ringed circular spanners are called.  Learnt my lesson long ago...

how they will find the most reward for least effort path in your game.

The perfect example of this (and I had a friend who was a master at it - these are his strategies, before the internet) is in the original X-com 1.  Want money?  All you have to do is build laser pistols flat out every cycle, and sell them off.  Nothing else gives you a better cost vs profit result, nearly to the point of breaking the game.

In Simcity 2000, the trick is to build everything along the lines of a 9x9 square, putting your water pump in the center square...

I don't know much about why a buffer works, but in my experience sticking a buffer in front of a high gain pedal fixes it 9/10 times.  I've done this with a Seventh Heaven, Brown Betty, BE-OD, and a number of others I can't recall.  It didn't work with my Boneyard, but putting a ~160k resistor to ground from the footswitch effect in lug fixed that one.

As Nanny Ogg would sing, "A wizard's staff has a knob on the end".
