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)

Build Reports / Pair O fuzz boxes

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...

the smd versions of them both on adapter boards work really well.

Wow, incredible build. Love the progress pics.

Build Reports / Re: Justicia y libertad dual OD (Lectricfx doubletake)

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.

General Questions / Dig dug rotary switches

Is this the correct style for the two rotaries in the dig dug 2? THe link in the build doc just goes to mouser search page.

Build Reports / Justicia y libertad dual OD (Lectricfx doubletake)

Built this a few weeks ago but just now getting around to posting the build report. Really nice OD with a wide range of toans!

I managed to get apart a brick, from zooming in on your pic it looks like R27 is removed is that correct?

Tech Help - Projects Page / tap phaser not very phasey
« on: September 15, 2017, 06:06:01 PM »
I built a 3 in 1 with the tapanator and wah trem and phaser. Everything is running smoothly except the phaser. Maybe I'm just expecting something different but the phaser doesn't sound very phasey at most settings (especially compared to some demos I've heard of it), it sounds more like a tremolo though at some settings there is some lighter phase so I'm thinking all the stages maybe aren't working correctly? The other thing is the feedback pot doesn't intensify the effect much it just adds more noise (more noise I expect but also to alter the effect more). I've triple checked parts values and the soldering and replaced IC2 but nothing is really changing. I've poked around with an audio probe but I haven't found a smoking gun. I used the recommended ldrs from small bear and its in an enclosure so light pollution shouldn't be an issue. Anything advise here is appreciated. Here are the voltages
IC 1
1 4.5
2 4.5
3 4
4 0
5 4.5
6 4.5
7 4.3~4.7
8 8.85

1 4.43~4.47
2 4.5
3 4.5
4 0
5 4.5
6 5~5.5
7 4.8~5
8 8.85

1 4.5~4.7
2 4.55
