Open Discussion / JST connectors
« on: December 05, 2019, 09:46:39 PM »
Any recommendations on small JST type connectors?
I'm looking to streamline the connections on a modular multi-pedal type thing. Footswitch, Power and audio jacks stay connected to the enclosure, while the main board is interchangeable.

Not sure it applies to the Tone King but just to throw it out there...

My AC30CC head shipped with a Sovtek 5AR4 for the rectifier and it always had what I like to call "undefined strangeness". 

I read this article:
https://www.premierguitar.com/articles/Ignore_a_Modern_AC30s_Standby_Switch

I bought Weber Copper Cap as a replacement and everything has been fine since.

The CC series had a bad rap for being unreliable which I believe is almost entirely due to the retifier tube. In the next "C" series Vox changed to a solid state rectifier.

I think the Copper Cap actually made mine sound better and I don't need to use the standby switch anymore.

Here is an example of Google Lens on my phone translating a PDF on my desktop screen

Not sure if it will do you much good but Google Translate has helped me in the past with something similar. Translate does foreign language websites (i think)automatically in chrome. see screen shot. "Google Lens" can even translate the text in images as well

The Maxon 01 series was Japan only and was all English except for the instruction manuals. Using this method helped me track down one of the settings on a DM-01

It's amateur hour over here but I just use a breadboard with terminal blocks with a bypass looper

If there is an extra hole, just say it's the carburetor

Who knew... Darth Vader plays a PRS.

There is one particular character name in the credits that really cracks me up... see if you can guess which one

There is also this direct from the VFE DIY sale.

In a summing amplifier, it seems that most of what i've seen uses an inverting opamp configuration, but sometimes I see one that is non-inverting such as the ROG Splitter-Blend. I understand that the non-inverting "virtual earth" eliminates source interaction. Is there interaction with a non-inverting config? Just curious why or in what circumstances you would use one over the other?

Thanks

Sounds like he is saying that he doesn't care... I would have some fun and send him a 3knob Bazz Fuss and never let on that it's not a muff. Call it the Biff Mug as an inside joke

Open Discussion / Re: Your suggestions on overdrives for mbp
« on: October 25, 2019, 05:37:35 PM »
I'd love to see an overdrive/distortion that is an expander (that is, the opposite of a compressor) into a clipping stage. Exaggerating playing dynamics could make for a really interactive and touch sensitive overdrive.
The EHX Graphic Fuzz has an expander section. It's more of an od/dist than a fuzz.

I'd also like to see an implementation of the AMZ "warp control". Something that would let you blend between symmetrical and asymmetrical clipping.

Some of the VFE stuff has "warp" type blending controls. The Alpha Dog and Scream among others let you warp the clipping type

Happened across the following video the other day and this thread reminded me of it.

May be similar but with delay and chorus too

Open Discussion / Re: Acoustic guitar string question
« on: October 24, 2019, 09:22:06 PM »
You don't hear about them much but I like Gibson Brite Wires (acoustic and electric). They are very crisp and raw sounding. I have a SG electric and a rosewood SJ-200 acoustic and I use BW occasionally. They are the opposite of Elixirs. I use those sometimes too. I've had 2 sets of John Pearse strings for lower tension and broke the high e on both within 10 minutes
