Open Discussion / Android 12...Windows11

Not anything to do with DIY but both highly recommended.  They fixed a lot of stuff that is truly annoying about Android 10 and the Windows bit is just a fine tune of Windows 10 but some nice tweaks.

I won't go into detail unless anyone wants an explanation.  It's made life easier in tiny increments so I'll consider it a WIN.

Very nice build and I agree with your take on the circuit.  I had it out this weekend and it gets a new spot on my board.  I may use it AND the Bajaman LA2A etch.  They're different enough that I have a need for both.  By FAR my fave OTA.  I had an old 3080 kicking around and used it.

The post office's excuse is "Delivery Exception, Animal Interference", which is complete non-sense since my dog is inside and even when he's outside the mail girl plays with him.

I've been over compensating by building everything I can get my hands on.  Temporary reprieve from the outside world I guess.  Man, do I have a crapload of cool pedals though...

That's too cool.  Have you used it direct to front of house?  I'm already using in-ear monitors so it wouldn't be a drastic change to not "feel" the cabinet.

Agreed, this is Aion level board stackage and a really great sounding circuit.  The Boss was never on my radar but some very cool (or very weird) sounds can be had from this.

As I understand it Chris the second trimmer sets the range of the rise time or the onset of vibrato.  If I understand the function correctly I've heard Joe Bonamassa use it to play a normal signal and then as it fades it gets a very distinct vibrato.  I think the VFE tremolo has a similar function.  Sounds kind of evil on sustained notes/chords.

English is better than mine and it's my native tongue.  My wife accuses me of mumbling...

Damn, everytime I build one of your projects it drags me back to the fact that I want an HX Stomp.  I just don't want to pay for it :-)

This project might be the tipping point...

Like Zerro says, go back to the original tubes and make sure the problem is solved.  Then start replacing one at a time.  It's always possible that one of your new tubes is pooched.  Rarely happens but not impossible.  As Jimi mentioned it could be either a bent pin or a loose tube socket.

What amp is it?  It's possible that a solder joint got knocked loose if the sockets are board mounted.  You wiggle the tube in to take the pressure off of the pins and you work a solder joint loose.

Ah the pleasures of tube amps...

"micro-traumas".  I'm going to use that.  Damned accurate description of the year.

Alan, this really does need a gut shot.  I was able to find the original transformers and although the wiring started off as under the board it took a turn for the worse when I figured out I had all the external jacks backward and had to start from scratch.  This is a crazy pedal for "just" being a tremolo.

The flying wire is a chassis ground and there was no way I was taking out a footswitch again to use a grounding washer so it was plan "B".

And the last of the bunch:  The Wobulator

Very slick tremolo.  I butchered the paint job but this photo looks good so I'll run with it.

Damn that Old School is too slick.  I love my build but yours adds a big scoop of cool graphics.

You're back!!  I'm totally onboard.  I'd also like to get my hands on a few of your Clapton boost boards as well if you still have any kicking about.
