General Questions / Re: Looper True Bypass, not so easy like it seems
« Last post by sonnyboy27 on Today at 07:27:01 AM »
I've built multiple true bypass loopers based on the diagram you have there and they've all worked out great. The added resistors and such on the keeley aren't necessary. You'll be fine with the plain diagram. If you have some switch pops you can go in and add those pulldown resistors if you need to but you probably won't.

Cool, thanks.  I bent them with the needle nose pliers, and nothing exploded, so that did the trick.

It's too bad that their stock of parts isn't as vast as Mouser or Digikey.  I could use some solder,
but they don't carry my preferred brand.  Still, I'm sure I can find some component that I need
just to take advantage of the free shipping.  :)

Recently, the party's ranger stole my bagpipes, painted "I love halflings" on it, rubbed hot peppers on the mouthpiece, and wrapped the bag with wires to make it hold less air. Guess who's not getting inspired any time soon ...

That is all perfectly reasonable where bagpipes are concerned.

I'm running a game of Storm King's Thunder for my friends and their kids. I too am finding that I prefer DMing to playing (it's my first time behind the screen), and it seems to be going well... Well they haven't decided to go back to the old campaign yet where I was a player anyhow. I'm also going to be running a pirate themed one shot for their daughter and her friends next week which should be fun.

As for the players I occasionally ask them what sort of things the characters want to do between sessions so I can tailor the game to them. Thankfully SKT is really sandboxy if you want it to be and doesn't have a time limit to drive them on. They can just hang out in the world if they want being low level adventurers, raiding tombs and what have you. I just mentioned to them, when you fancy getting back on plot, let me know and I'll push you in the right direction.

I am also creating my own little corner of Faerun. The kids are probably a little too young at the moment to get involved in the political aspect of things I've built into it, but I look forward to running that maybe later for them. If anything, I'm just enjoying creating that world and it's contents.

As a player I enjoy playing complicated characters. I tried running a righteous paladin and it just didn't work for me at all and I got bored really quickly. Which is a shame as the mini I painted for him was AWESOME! My longest running character is a blue dragonblood tiefling sorcerer (before Critical Role made them popular). Who was/is a spy. I love that guy, but he's really messed up and has a lot of inner conflict regarding his heritage, being a tiefling with the blood of a blue dragon trying to be a good guy in a world that mostly hates him.

Oh yeah, as for prep, I spend way too much time on it sometimes. But the players do seem to appreciate it. This is for a day of D&D. I haven't finished prepping all the encounters yet, but these are the maps and the handouts (65 pages of A4... counting the map I did twice admittedly):

Hi, I'm looking some layout of the some DIY True Bypass Looper, one loope effects.
This is the basic schematic:


I found the Keeley one's gutshot:

It' includes a pair of extra resistors. ???
I'd say those resistors are between tip and sleeve of the jacks Send & Return. Pull Down Resistors, just in case we need of them?
Confirm, please?

And then I found some kits that includes a pair of caps (looking at the size I'd say 100nF). I can't imagine the purpose. :(

Thanks all for you guys support. I've found the culprit for the White Horse. It was the BS170 on the clipping section. I pulled that off and changed to socket. Replaced them with 1N914 like Timmy. Voila! It works nicely.





Going move up to Bumblebee soon.

This one is for every self-promoting journalist that tries to sound intellectual by writing articles about how "guitar rock is dead" and "kids want electronic music". Then these kids bust in the room:

Every time I hear them on the radio I think my local rock station has started playing Zeppelin for some reason. Its almost eerie how close they emulate it.
