nzCdog, thx very much. I learned a lot and I love the pedal.

Invertiguy, I donít know how to link a thread. But if you go over to beginners Paradise and look a couple of post down there is an Aion L5 build post where I documented some of this and it specifically talks about how I made the pots out of A5k ones.

Willy, Do it you will enjoy it.

The nameplate for the enclosure is a hidden page on the Aion website.

https://aionelectronics.com/project/l5-preamp-logo-nameplate/

Here's the link to the actual enclosure page, but it's out of stock.

Cool Chong magic, I'm glad you like it. It really just depends on what I have the parts for at this point.

Thx TC, the more I listen the more I like, thx again for all your help with it.

Gordo, I've got the chorus and frankly I'm afraid of it. I'll get to it eventually though.

Now, I have to figure out what parts I'm missing for the uber tuber and rabbit hole and then decide on one of those two.

Hey Chongmagic, thatís what it looks like to me. I got mine in a trade with another member here at MBP.

You might contact Kevin at Aion, as he was considering another run of these.  Thatís where this came from originally,

Thx Alanp. It was far and away my biggest build and I learned a lot.

Thx for your help.

Iím looking forward to the challenge of the uber Tuber and the rabbit Hole. I still think Iím more intimidated by the 1590a build because there is not much room for error.

Maybe, Iíll do that next. Large to small.

Cooder,

Thanks man, I work  very hard at the tidy part.

I like it a lot. I have not even begun to explore all it can do, but I have already gotten a lot of big sounds out of it and this thing is the most powerful OD ever.

I'm going to have fun exploring this one.

Thx again.

Build Reports / Aion L5 preamp build (Long overdue)
« on: December 28, 2018, 08:08:56 PM »
Hey all,

Sorry this took so long. The move and getting set up took a lot longer than I thought.

Learned a ton. To slow down and take my time, how to modify pots to obtain different values, a little about SMD's, capacitors and ripple, managing a messload of pots at one time, etc.

Big shout out to tcpoint for all of his help with parts and questions. To others as well for my usual abundance of questions.

Build materials: Xicon 1% MFR, Mainly 5% WIMA caps with a few 5%TDK/Epcos scattered in and a lone 5% Kemet. Nichicon Fine Gold electros in the signal path and other Nichicon in the power supply. TDK 5% (C0G) MLCC's. Gold plated pin/socket IC sockets. Mainly TI IC's. Mostly Alpha pots and  Bourns trims. Kobiconn power jack an switchcraft g enclosed guitar jacks.

What's missing": The name plate. I will have to find or make one.

Next up: Either the Uber tuber or Rabbit Hole, I haven't decided yet.

Thanks again for all your help.

-Mike

How Do I? Beginner's Paradise. / Another combining circuits question.
« on: December 16, 2018, 10:19:21 AM »
Sorry,

iíve Searched and could not find a satisfactory answer.

My amp is on the fritz and so last night I started a project that Iíve been thinking about for awhile.

I have a v6 drive from GuitarPCB (vox/fender tone in a box) and a small 20w stereo class D amp from Adafruit that I was thinking of combining into one enclosure.

Is it really as simple as routing the output of the v6 into the amp?

Then is there something I need to do to isolate the two power supplies from one another?

Then last question, should I make both circuits common ground to eliminate ground loops or just do that for each individual circuit.

Thanks in advance for any help and If I am way off in left field donít hold back, I can use any constructive criticism I can get.
