Build Reports / Krankosaurus - 2011 PIF Content
« on: March 31, 2012, 07:12:59 AM »
I snagged a Krankosaurus from Josh (gtr2) which I built up a while ago but only finally decided to splash out for the alpha 9mm pots recently.  It fired up first time :)

I like the pedal much more than I thought I would .    here are a couple of pics

« on: March 15, 2012, 03:24:28 AM »
Had this enclosure for a while and was goining to make a vero V846 for it until MR Bean whipped is weaner out  :o  .  Went the whole hog an used an Icar Pot and of course the Whipple inductor. 

Still playing with values and transistors but it sounds great at the moment.

Build Reports / Dirtbag Delay
« on: February 26, 2012, 05:54:43 AM »
When the Dirtbag first came out I wanted to build one but thought that it would be beyond me and that I would never get any MN3005's and couldn't justify the price. Well when I saw the3secondrule's Board and 2 Genuine MN3005's for sale at a great price I jumped at the chance.

The board as per all Madbeans boards is of fantastic quality and the layout on this one is amazing , I am loving board mounted pots :).  It was a tight fit in an Eddystone 1590bb that I had laying around

I only had one issue and that was no modulation due to a bent pin on IC7 which was soon sorted once I was pointed in the right direction.

Big thanks to Madbean and t3sr

Went for the classic DMM look.

Tech Help - Projects Page / Dirtbag no Modulation
« on: February 25, 2012, 02:10:39 PM »
So when I built my MN3005 Dirtbag at 15v  and it fired up first time and I  got it biased up pretty easily I was over the moon.  After a day or so I realised I had had no modulation at all :D.

The only sub I can think of that might have affected it is CD4047ube for  CD4047BCN

When playing if  i turn the modulation pot I get that modulation noise with the pitch changing like you would expect when turning the pot.  Also when flicking the switch I also get a pitch warble.  But after that no modulation whatsoever

I have checked all values around the Mod section

Any ideas guys?

Build Reports / Current Lover
« on: January 14, 2012, 05:20:14 AM »
Here is my Current Lover - Worked first time after a bit of biasing.  Just a little distortion to iron out and still undecided whether to run at 9v or 15v.  I really enjoyed the build and the board mounted pots / switches but I am not so stuck on the effect which considering I used to have an Electric Mistress and sold it is not a great surprise so I am thinking about the M117 clone next :).  Because of this I did not go overboard on the enclosure but just snagged a copy of Lacesensors homage to the DEM (thanks )

Build Reports / Last of the Aristocrats
« on: December 03, 2011, 11:10:18 AM »
I think i got the last aristocrat board from madbean hence the name of the pedal

I messed up one or two things and the led wiring was a bit of an after thought but I am really pleased with the build.  The case is powder coated antique white with a full face clear sticker which did not go on too well but i was in  a rush   :(

Channel 2 has the 250k pot for slightly more gain

Tech Help - Projects Page / Pork Barrel Chorus
« on: November 05, 2011, 09:26:25 AM »
Hope you guys can help me out here with my first madbean build

(1) Project Name - Pork Barell Chorus - Latest version

(2) General description of the problem - With the 10k Trimmer all the way to the left I get a nice clean signal but after about a third of the way around the chorus kicks in but I am getting a fair bit of noise and if I strike a chord I get a bit of distortion as well.  The sound stays the same with the trimmer all the way clockwise

(3) Steps that you have taken to try to resolve the issue - I have tried all new Transaistors and IC's with no change.  Both pots alter the sound as you would expect

(4) List any substitutions you used for parts/values
R40 - 39r instead of 33r

Thanks in advance
