Thanks for the info.

Build Reports / Re: Cascadia build

Just finished my build, yesterday.  Went with 1n695s and have to say this is one great pedal.  It is going to knock off a pedal or two on my board.

Next Step, drilling end tining

I used to drill my boards with a small hand-driller but for this board, which have the biggest count of holes I've ever done, I've buy a small drill stand. It went well but it was a bit tedious...




After a bath of liquid tin:



I've also had the time to solder the 17 links:





That's it!

I guess, P stands for "Power", it's a power/ current resistor?

Pretty much this. Its a 1/2W resistor in a 1/8W size form factor. Its acting as a power resistor (designed to stay cool while having lots of power running through it).

Just got my Cascadia PCB yesterday.   :)  Will start my build when my Smallbear order arrives later this week (hopefully).  I'll try to set up a video demo and post it when I have the unit up and running.  My current pedalboard has a compressor and Klon clone (set up as a low gain preamp) upstream of my current overdrive, so we'll see how it behaves in that configuration.
Just finished mine, not boxed yet, so no pics yet. I tried different diode combinations, and did not like a pure OA7 Setup. There was some fizz in the decay of chords. I have better results with 1N34 for D2-D5 and 1N949 for D6-D8. No fizz, open dynamics, great tone control. Awesome!

Sweet! Glad you dig it. Probably need to make the official recommendation to use sockets unless you're using 1N695.

I might have to check out the 1N949. The OA7s I have sound more aggressive, but didn't get any fizz. Went through and measured the rest of my stock and they tend to vary more than the 1N695, though.

I am glad that I used sockets. I will try to get some 1N695 as well....
