General Questions / Re: Grind Customs Tusk--dual gang pot question

You could do what Ibanez, Boss and others do and cram a sheet of plastic in there. I have used transparency sheets for something like that.

Where was it supposed to go?

Looks like it only took about 15min to get from San Fran to FL. Even with the 3 hour time change, is that possible?

Unless you just have to have V2, it’s cheaper to just get the V3 from Brian. Either way, you’d need the MCU.
I'm using the switch jack holes on the v2 for strain relief on the modular connections. V3 doesn't have them.  Plus v2 has better power connectors than v1

The Jimmy Page wiring usually has 2 volume and 2 tone controls, each with a push pull dpdt switch.

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.
Wow that sucks. Maybe there's a new person

"micro-traumas".  I'm going to use that.  Damned accurate description of the year.
Yes, I like it. I'll be using nano-trama and mega-trama as well

The ProtoRig is very convenient. Did a Lpb1 into a Bazz Fuss in no time.

If I remember correctly the name change didn't happen at specific version but he just decuded to change it. I think the name change happened shortly after the v2 circuit where the Depth knob changed to Center, and the middle PV mode was introduced. I have an "Enterprise" with those changes and I've seen some others out there that do but the overwhelming majority don't.

Funny thing is, I think the schematic in the MB build doc is for the pre-v2 "Enterprise".

I don't think there is anything that was changed in the circuit that would change the sound that much. The part values used were likey tweaked over time, so that may be more if the difference you are hearing.

It's "vintage inspiration" is the EXH Small Stone? Wonder why it wasn't a Phase 100?

Dang I should really offer this one. Now that I look at it I'm digging the idea behind the Dragon Hound.
Ah, no wonder I couldn’t find it. Am I looking at a rat type circuit and a modified tube screamer 2 in one?What is a D1M pot?

D1M seems to be Exponential characteristic pot?
Where do you get one?

Yep, it is the Alpha Dog "Adrive" and Pale Horse 'Pdrive" mixed in parallel with a shared filter control.

I would have loved to have seen a version with a series-parallel switch and the filter control moved to independent trimpots

He sells the diy files now separately from the boards on the vfe site. I did have his older Dropbox links for the docs posted on another thread but they no longer work. I believe there may still be a schematic for it in the photos section of the vfepedals Facebook site.

While I had the SM9 open I decided to document the pot values and tapers.

Level = 10kA
Drive = 100kB
Attack = 20kG
Edge = 20kG
Punch = 100kB
