Good things come to those who wait.

I do quite a few PCB designs myself for circuits much much simpler, these normally go through 3-4 iterations before I am happy with the design. Even then there has been a time when a glaringly obvious mistake was discovered a few days after the boards have started production.

I'll turn this car around and then no one'll get any Dirtbag!

I just love this ... ideal Brian follow-up: "Don't MAKE me stop this car!!"

You damn kids, with your Dirtbags, and your electricity.  When I was your age, if we wanted analog delay, we went to a cave and yelled really loud.  Sometimes we got attacked by bears, but goddammit, that's how we liked it.
I thought this would save me money.

Maybe a preorder thread for this project would help, so Brian can have an estimate number of boards he'll sell right away. Add let's say 30 boards to that number and hopefully everyone will get one.
All in favor? ^^

That's a great idea, i'm sure everyone anxiously checks the project page every day, multiple times even, just to see whether or not the dirtbag got released and subsequently to their horror sold out within 15 minutes. It would definitely relieve everyone of trying to get their dirtbag order early, although I don't mind it being released as usual on the projects page.

I know that Bean is working extremely hard on the dirtbag, which seems to be the most in demand (most anticipated) release apart from the sunking I've seen since i've joined (I'm a noob here i know i know). Gotta make sure all the kinks are worked out!

Pre-order would be the opposite way to go if Brian would prefer less pressure on a release date.

I'll be ordering 100 boards for the initial run. This should be enough to stay in stock for a couple of weeks, even if it does sell well.
I own madbeanpedals (duh). I am part owner of Function F(X).

Whoa, if there ever is a new HL I might even just break the hiatus of 15 years and go back to gaming ha!
I am excited for the dirtbag 3 too. I have decided that I hate all digital delays. There's not one that I have tried that inspired me to play. I look at em just as tools to get the job done. That's why I have the DL4 still. Looking forward to some analog goodness. Thanks Brian!

@cortex have your tried the multiplex?  It's filtered
Like an analog delay, I think it sounds great.  Also the hamlet+ is pretty great too.  Definitely both digital, but just great delays.  If you are looking for a DMM though, there really is nothing quite like it.

Well yeah, my dream is getting the blue box one from the late seventies to complete my seventies board, there are 4 more pedals from the seventies waiting for the delay to make that bunch whole.

So, if somebody has a blue box DMM I might be in in a couple of months (basically broke at the moment).

Didn't mean to disrupt the topic. Yay dirtbag delay!

I am trying to source some original MN3008 chips and spotted those eBay listings:


http://www.ebay.com/itm/360261783432?_trksid=p2060778.m1438.l2649&ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT

http://www.ebay.com/itm/1PC-MN3008-3008-Low-Noise-BBD-CHIP-ICs-NEW-/180810623454

Does anyone have experience with these e-bay sellers "janeh2100" and "greenhouse408"? Strangly they are using the same picture! But are there even fake MN3008s?

They look nice and fake to me, use the supplier others have had success with in this thread.
Works at Lectric-FX

Ceitron's ebay store has been out recently (http://www.ebay.com/itm/MN3008-Original-Panasonic-Matsushita-8P-DIP-IC-2-pcs-/291255711068?), but I know Chromosphere (from this forum) has some in: http://www.diyguitarpedals.com.au/shop/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=4&products_id=123.  Individually tested before shipping too; that's where I got mine.  Looking forward to trying them out!

I recently ordered 4 from both Janeh and funkward. Both sets were all legit. I also sent a message to them prior advising I would dispute and leave bad feedback if they sent fakes. Not sure if that made a difference, but I figured it would be worth a shot.

I thought about ordering from Janeh to save a little bit of cash, but I am always concerned ordering bbds from china.
