General Questions / Re: Mn3005 voltages on aquaboy
« Last post by nunonaos on Today at 02:43:12 AM »
Very nice! Cloth wire? I like the insulation :) reminds me of some of my 1590A builds.
The tape looks ugly but I needed to have the mod board over the main board to adjust the modulation trimmers when needed and didn't have room for anything else.

It's my first try with cloth wire and I love it, it doesn't break easily like other solid core wire I tried and It's easy to bend

Did some cut testing. I got some blank beer coasters. They are "medium weight fiberboard", which my calipers tell me are 1.25mm thick. This is the typical light cardboard coaster you get any bar or restaurant.

Three passes at max power cuts through 100%.

Build Reports / AION Stratus - TS-9 Tube Screamer
« Last post by Zico on May 29, 2017, 08:42:26 PM »
AION Stratus - TS-9 Tube Screamer

This has been my favorite build to date, it was my second pedal ive put together and was super impressed how it  sounds through my Fender Hotrod Deluxe, I socketed it and ended up settling on the Brightness and Clipping mods
Used a waterslide decal and was happy with the results.

I ended up loaning this one to someone who wanted to try an Tubescreamer, they liked it so much I had to be me another :)
The second build I used a BB OPA2134A OpAmp

Here's my voltage readings along with correct numbers from the build plans. Correct voltages followed by mine.

IC1:
1.   3mV     .2mV
2.   3mV     .2mV
3.  .8mV     .2mV
4. -8.59V      -7.89V
5. 2.9mV    .2mV
6  1.80mV    -1.2mV
7  2.3mV    -1.1mV
8  9.16V      8.76V

IC2(L): I figured L and R meant the trimpot turned all the way to the left and right.  Both sets of readings were almost the same for me, so I only bothered listing my right.
1.   .56V        .47V
2.   1.2mV    1.7mV
3.   1.1mV      .3mV
4.  -8.6V      -7.9V
5.    .7V          .46V
6.    .73V        .46V
7.   2.5V        2.18V
8.   9.15        8.7V

IC3:
1.   0               -1.4V
2.   2.2mV       -1.1mV
3.   .8mV         .3mV
4.   -8.61V       -7.9V
5.   .7mV         .2mV
6.   .5mV         -1.4mV
7.   .3mV         -1.2mV
8.   9.16V         8.76mV

IC4:
1.   1.5V         -.2mV
2.   4.98V       4.62V
3.   .9mV        .3mV
4.   -3.9V        -3.7V
5.   -8.6V        -7.89V
6.   2.55V       6.36V
7.   1.41V       6.03V
8.   9.15V       8.74V

Very nicely executed. I think you did a fine job with the waterslide.

AION Corvus - Op Amp Big Muff Pi
had a lot of fun building this one and and experimenting with different OpAmps.
Really love the sound of this pedal, especially with Tube Screamer feeding into it 

I saw the Pumpkin Pi name in a youtube clip, thought it very fitting and borrowed it
I struggled with the water slide decals and this was my 3rd attempt

Open Discussion / Re: DigiTech XP-100 question

To be fair, i probably should if anything make a digital pitch shifter since thats really all i am after. I would buy a second hand wh-4 but where i live im looking at minimum  80 (about $105). Since i have most of the digital ICs i would in theory be making the pedal for cheaper.
