I've only finished one pedal so far this year
Yes, but what a pedal!

I've been cooking something for awhile, this post is just the kick in the butt I need to get it finished.

That looks super clean!

Wow!  That is absolutely gorgeous!  I love the dot indicators under the Neve knobs.   8)

I've never heard of this circuit before.  If you have more information to share with a fellow 2399 fan, I'd appreciate it. Did you do the layout for the PCB?

Those look fantastic!  The enclosures look like etches.  8)

Build Reports / Re: Deathklaw with Modulation
« on: October 07, 2021, 03:49:18 PM »
Thanks!  I think the modulation might be from the Dirt Baby, I forget.  I know I took a look at a few different modulation set ups and the DB was one. 

Sorry, I no longer have this pedal for sound clips.  It was given to the guy in the graphic  ;D

Happy to share Eagle files if that helps with your project.  You might want to use either the small or the large PT2399s.  I've only seen the middle size 2399s, used here, for sale at Small Bear and they won't be available much longer.

Is it too early to start bugging Lawrence (BLMS) about the new items we will need him to stock?  :P
I was searching around for some Synth Pointer #4s, yesterday.  That's my new favorite, and only available at SB. No luck, but I did find this on a synth forum  ;D

That looks cool!

The numbers are the gauge of the wire. 24 has a smaller diameter (easier to bend) than 22.  I prefer the 22 but a lot of builders like 24.  I have some 24 for tight builds because sometimes the 22 is too bulky.  There should be a source for it in the UK. I was going to post a link to Small Bear link for reference, but their site seems to be down at the moment.  Here's a link to GuitarPCB's 24g wire as an example.

The wire you want is 22g pre-tinned.  It holds its shape. If you check Small Bear, they might have some left. 

I'd also recommend getting some 24g for tighter builds like 1590As

BLEND pot corrected!  250kB sounds fantastic!
Nice! Did you end up altering the other resistors as well?
Nope, just the pot value.  I still don't understand how the Blend pot value would cut the volume.  I assumed a 100k would be the right value, but on the scope still cut the output.  200-250k was a surprise, but definitely sets everything back to normal.  I'd love to hear an expert explain this  8)

I agree, I just ordered new releases and as gordo said- best build docs in diy. Close second to kevin at aion. Alsways look forward to a new mbp release!

This forever x100

Yes!

Hell yeah!   8)

I just looked back at my order history to see if there was anything in particular that I always ordered from there. Lots of pots and caps that tend to be out of stock other places but almost every order I've made had switches, optocouplers, and a v571.

Also, my very first order (way back in early 2017 ) had jellybean transitor and diode kits that I have zero recollection of ever receiving or using. Weird

Damn, I forgot 571s!  They're gone  :(

What are jellybean transistors? Sound pretty sweet  ;D

That looks sharp!  8)

I watched the video.  I noticed the sweep knob is only active last part of the turn.   I had this in my build.  I'd recommend adding a 2k resistor across legs 2 and 3 to convert the 10kB to a 10kC.  You can do it on the boxed circuit.

Oh man, what a bummer. 

I just placed a "oh crap" order.  Wish I had more projects lined up.  I'm sure I'm going to need something obscure as soon as they're gone  :P
