Any recommendations for buying MN3008s? I saw them on small bear, but $80 for 4 chips is pretty pricey. I wanted to go ahead and buy them in advance

I think people have had good luck ordering from here:

Some confirmation on this would be appreciated (I kinda want someone to confirm before I buy from him too)

If you are thinking about using $200 worth of BBD then you must REALLY... REALLY love the DIY experience  ;)

I just ordered 4 last week from Paul.

11$ a piece, each verified. He's fast as well! Just 7 left.. get them while they're still warm.

Don't forget there will be an option to build it with the BL3208. And, it is possible to covert that to an MN3008 build at a later time (with some desoldering and  component replacement).

Hmmmm....maybe that's the route I will take. Any noticeable tone difference between the two? The BL3208s are definitely more affordable

Yes, there will be some difference. The MN3008 version will have a bit more headroom. I can't say more yet, but I will provide a detailed description of the differences once I have completed the BL3208 build.

Indeed, I do. :)
I ask because I bought 2 x MN3005 last year with the intent on building a dirtbag. I'm not sure what approach to take with regards mixing and matching, possibly leaving BBDs empty, or just coughing up another 100 for 2 addtional 3005s. Last year's investment has already been absorbed anyhow.

Killer!

+1. I've asked for some confirmation on this seller in a few different threads myself.

Lots of awesome right here!

Looks like it will be a 1790NS built, love that..... this circuit and Pete/Keefe PolyChorus would make a nice pedal pair on any board! 8)

People reported poor packaging but they seemed to get that fixed by the time I bought a pair. They were packaged well and they were legit (I dropped them in my aquaboy build and they worked as expected). It appears the seller has a bunch of NOS chips all with the same number printed on them. I have another pair on the way so I will report back if there happen to be issues.

Thanks Jon! Let us know how your other pair turns out. I don't currently have any delay builds to test stuff in, so hopefully the seller will still have stock by the time the new Dirtbag drops. (I have some known good 3008s already, but I want to build two of these guys.)

I think as soon as we get the good-to-go on them, there is going to be a run on them

I bought two separate pairs from that seller as well. Good chips, bad packaging.

Buy with some reasonable level of semi-confidence.   ;D

Yep. We should all just bite the bullet and sink or swim together.
