Apis. Klon in a 1590a
« on: September 11, 2012, 05:32:21 PM »
Got all of the passives except one in the same direction :) I used all ceramics for polarized cap positions, even the two 47uf's. Bat41's for the diodes but got some oa126's on the way. I made the mistake of not measuring the template i had in eagle and paid the price. As you can see in the top of the enclosure the cutouts are not deep enough which pushed the pcb down, luckily i was able to still make it fit  ::) Eagle files updated, that won't happen again. I've never used these type of jacks before didn't realize they were switching until it was wired up, next time i will have the i/o's switched to ground.

As usual crappy pic's don't do the pedals finish justice. Finished in DC texture powder coat. Embossed graphics. Aluminum knobs from smallbear. Background is actual beeswax that i use in my beekeeping adventures :)

This particular build sounds really midrangey for some reason. Maybe the carbon comp resistor tolerances?

I suspect there will be quite a few people who want to give you money, Jimmy, in exchange for one of those Shetland Centaurs  ;D

Wow mate, how the hell did you get all that in there? I just finished my first baby build, red llama and i struggled to get that in there, practice makes perfect i guess.  :) Great finish too, how do you get the design pressed into the finish.
Take it easy, Matt.

I like the finish! As admirable as it is that you got a klone into a 1590a, I think that understated finish is fanfreakingtastic.

Aw, you're killing me.

Did you make your own layout from scratch, or use (or adapt) saxoftenest's layout?

Thanks for all the super compliments guys!!!

Great finish too, how do you get the design pressed into the finish.
Take it easy, Matt.

3 layers of high temp vinyl stacked via registration marks. Slow powder coat cure to prevent the melting of vinyl before the powder can flow.

I like the finish! As admirable as it is that you got a klone into a 1590a, I think that understated finish is fanfreakingtastic.

Awesome, i glad someone else likes this finish as much as i do.

Aw, you're killing me.

No, all original. Actually i copied Brians schematic. Layout is completely mine.

I've been a fan of many of your builds but I think that's my new favorite.

Mine too!

It's like all your lost pedals built a super pedal to rule the world.
