Patreon Support
« on: September 02, 2017, 08:09:18 AM »
If you are a member of the VFE Patreon group support is also available here on the forum for the Patreon effects builds. Please feel free to ask questions and receive help on your builds. I'm not quite up to speed on the new designs yet but I will be building a Dragon up next week. I'll do my best to help with any basic build questions, etc. Specific questions about rewards, shipping, etc should still be directed to Peter through Patreon.

Peter has also posted a video on building the Patreon effects. I haven't had a chance to watch it yet but that is another resource of information at your disposal.
I own madbeanpedals (duh). I am part owner of Function F(X).

Cool.  Really nice projects.  I'm almost done building a Pinball.

I have a Dragon Overdrive, but I could use a drill template.  I may have missed it with all the stuff that has been sent.  Brian, do you have one, or have a way to get one that could be shared here?  Or please correct me if I missed it somehow?

Thank you for providing Patreon support.

Snagged a physical reward this month, and I'm putting together a mental shopping list. Its interesting that the previous iteration of this designed use the TLE2074 quad op amp. The new one uses a "MC33074", which I'm not familiar with. On the plus side, though, its a quarter the cost.

On the other hand, I already have a spare TLE2074.... anyone know how equivalent they are? I'm guessing they'd drop in, they appear to have the same pinout, but the specifics of the spec sheet are a bit greek to me.

I just became a Patreon support today. I didn't notice Peter post that he ended the Patreon support after I checked out the pledge. Will he still send the reward or drop my pledge? Any idea, guys?

Send him a patreon message or email him, he's usually pretty good about responding (with a delay). That said I know he froze the donations a few weeks back so its possible that your support won't actually process.

Then again I've been a supporter since August and only managed to get 1 of his board file dumps, back in October. It seems his sending method doesn't cooperate with Gmail, leading to much frustration.

Just sent him the message through Patreon. Hopefully, he will reply back. Has anyone seen his educational video? That might be interesting to learn more about his method building pedals.

Update: He closed out the Patreon and he planned to issue refund for late supporters. I am still intrigued to get the EAGLE files for previous projects. I sent him a message to raise this question.
