Ahh, thank you!
General Questions / Grindcustoms Bendover Fuzz doc?
August 26, 2021, 05:00:44 AM
Anybody got the docs?  Found a half finished board.  Messaged a couple people that didn't have the doc so they suggested I ask in here.  Any help would be mucho appreciated, thanks!
Anyone know if this has been verified?  This is the only post I could come up with in a search.  Mine's built up, just waiting on some 56k's from Australia

Would love to have something like that, that could go in my effects loop and not in front of my amp
Open Discussion / Single Knobby FV-1 Reverb

Sorry, been out of the game for awhile just lurking about when I get the chance.  But the dreamtime pedal I saw demo'd on facebook recently got me thinking.  Those chips can do so much, as Brian had demo'ed.  But how about just a badass "spring reverb" setting?  One knobby of awesomeness.  Isn't that all the EHX Holy Grail is?  Sure there's more, (hall, flerb), but I'm ready for the bashing if I'm way off course, lol.  I love my big box Holy Grail, but it's lost some sparkle and charm over the last 10 years.  That's either my playing, ears, or circui.... naww, probably my playing, lol.

The wah that madbean sells is really nice.   ;)

Contact Joe Gagan, you can find him here or on facebook, and he can sell you just the hardware.

Good grief, didn't even realize madbean had a wah pcb, I thought they were all "autowah-ish" kinda stuff, lol.  So I'll get the weener wah pcb.  Now I just need to contact Joe for the hardware.  Thanks!
General Questions / Getting into Wah's
April 21, 2017, 02:34:48 PM
Wondering how I should start and what I should get.  I'd like to build one of the vero projects on the tagboard page, or even do the wah from BYOC because I like the idea of all the switching.  So many options for the circuit itself, but does anyone make a good wah kit with just the hardware?
Sorry for the resurrection, but does anyone make a pcb for this? Oshpark? I wanted to try the sabro vero but I think it's from the bad schem too

^ I did too, but I went with the $2.75 ones.  It sounds great, but I've never tried the 7532's so I don't really have anything to compare it to.
Doh! After reading some more I see one is hermetically sealed and the other isn't.  I think the TO-5 looks cooler 😄
Thanks Jon, I'm gonna go with the top one. I couldn't remember which one smallbear was saying would be good for the vibe, pretty sure it was that one.  There is also another one with the same specs but "TO-5", would that one be better or worse?
Anybody have the link for the photocells on smallbears site? I tried the links in this discussion but no luck.  It's for a harbinger build, thanks
Man I just looked at your pic, all that brown/orange stuff around the new solder joints (bad around depth pot pads and c/v switch) is dried up burnt flux.  Sometimes cleaning that up can help out big time.  There could be a solder ball or some tiny strand of wire hidden in there just right, that could've flowed around other components.  Just a dab of alcohol on a soft brush will usually do it.  Don't use your toothbrush, lol.  Also J2 looks suspect, may need to be reflowed.  Just a couple things I noticed right off hand, and trying to save the bean a little time.    This thing has just got me super baffled :o
That sounds awesome Bean, I'd like to know too.  Maybe I had a funky value in there to start with? Maybe that's where the hiss was coming from and that's what could be giving Dan problems?  I honestly have no idea.  Dan, let me know the shipping to bean and I'll pp ya.  Sorry guys, I guess I should've just went with my original plan and tossed it 😞
yeah I didn't send it out with the board mounted pots and 3PDT, I thought those would be easy enough for someone to replace and save room on shipping, since there were 3 other boards being sent with this one. 

Brian said he wanted to see the board and check out the parts, I thought this would help but it's the only pic I have.  Better than nothing.

Dan, have you checked continuity between the "de-soldered" areas to the next component?  That would tell us alot right there. If you think there's a pad lifted or something, might be a good place to start.

And this board was sold to you cheaper than buying a brand new board, so if you'd like to send that one back to me so I can get it working again, I'll pay shipping both ways.  All the boards I sold you came out to less than the price of a new board.  Or I'll give you a refund for the board.  I sold it so cheap so someone could mess with the PT2399, because I was having such a hard time with the hiss, just like I stated in my listing.
