Merman 22F caps
« on: July 07, 2018, 03:10:01 PM »
I forgot to include some 22F low ESR in my last order from Mouser...Can I use regular low profile 22F instead ?

The low ESR are preferred but regular 22uF will work fine. The Merman is the only klone type build I've used low ESR caps in.
I own madbeanpedals (duh). I am part owner of Function F(X).

The Merman certainly seems to have had a lot of thought and testing put into the specific cap values used.  I'm building it now and trying to stay within the design parameters, but I did sub regular 22 uf caps on the board instead of using the low ESR caps.

thanks for the answers ! ...but I just put another order so I will wait for those low ESR caps (I'm planning to do some more VFE projects anyway).
Thanks again !!!
