Hi from Sydney
« on: March 30, 2016, 03:53:06 AM »
Hi guys,
After a year or so of procrastinating, I got busy over the Easter long weekend and built a Noisy Cricket.
The thing is a bit of a birds nest inside, but it sounds pretty fantastic. I liked the idea of the "betta bass" capacitor mods, so I added a rotary switch with the 3 caps, and led indication.
I've got it running through the 12" celestion in my Ampeg combo, and I'm impressed with the sound.

I also have a berserker Fuzz pedal from Diyguitarpedals.com.au that's 90% complete. I didn't want to risk killing my amp testing it, so the Noisy Cricket was completed first as my testing amp.

Anyway, hope this little hobby doesn't end up as big as my last obsession (brewing).
Cheers

Welcome to the forum, I'm a Fellow Aussie from Victoria.
This has been like the crack of the hobby world for me.
Very addictive

There's a few of us here.  Chromosphere is in Melbourne too.  (I'm in Doncaster now actually.  I should check the address on the last envelope of stuff he sent out and have a stalk!)

Welcome! DIYGP is Chromesphere's store. He's a good guy. I have an order incoming from him. I'm looking forward to seeing a build report on the fuzz.

Cheers guys.
DIYGP has been quick with the replies when I've asked a couple of questions. Very helpful.
I'll try to get some photos up soon of the works. Off today to buy some decent drill bits and a can of spraypaint.

Doncaster East here Willy.  The address on the envelope is my work address (not home address) which is unrelated to pedal parts, something I do in my 'spare time', for anyone else looking at going down the stalking route.  :)

Cheers Chromosphere. Hope not to be too much of a pest, but it's only natural for a noob.
