Title: Pedalpcb Brown Betty
Post by: verr76 on March 10, 2021, 05:46:39 PM
Hello all... hope you're doing ok in these times...
havenīt been around here for some time īcause ... well .. 2020 happend  ;D
Got this pedalpcb Brown Betty sometime last year and finally got it done.
Did some mods with the internal trimpot puting it on a daughterboard also in series with a fixed 33K resistor and a second offboard pot to add some control over the added gain.
At the same time the footswitch adds a series resistor and cap to ground on that same opamp's feedback loop. The Change is not drastic but you certainly feel some extra umff

Edit: Small demo (not all things are chunk hehehe)

That looks fantastic, and your wiring is beautiful. What amp are you using this with? I've never tried a friedman amp or pedal but this makes me.want to try one.

Great work, that's some of the cleanest wiring I've ever seen! I love the graphics as well, is that a faceplate or some sort of decal?

That does look great. I've got the BEOD pedal that sounds killer, never heard a Dirty Shirley.

Very nice work, the friedman stuff is pretty good sounding. This is my go-to for the chunk chunk stuff.

Thank you all for those kind words.

What amp are you using this with? I've never tried a friedman amp or pedal but this makes me.want to try one.
My set up is with a Quilter 45 Microblock most of the time with a preamp of my own design... although, this preamp is in a pedal format so I can also go straight to the Quilter if I need.

is that a faceplate or some sort of decal?
It is a faceplate. It's UV printed so I could've easily gone with a direct to enclosure print... but I like the way the raw aluminum looks.
