I can only log in with Chrome Browser.
All other Browsers (Firefox, Brave, Edge) kick me out after seeing one page. And I have to log in twice to see that one page. No matter if on phone or desktop.

Looking good!

Is there a way to get the links that were at the top of the old page back? That was very handy.

Changed those two caps as per your suggestion and now the pedal sounds much better. Thanks again.

General Questions / Effects Layouts Crystal Shard
August 04, 2023, 03:29:51 PM
I finished the Effects Layouts Crystal Shard:
It's a modified mashup of the EQD Chrysalis and Arrows aka an Electra circuit, and I like its character but do feel that it's quite a bit on the bright side.
In the BOM it says that it's "ripe for experimentation" but what could I do to get rid of the really excessive treble and instead add some bass and body? Increase C2 and C8? To what values?
I will definitely change the volume pot to a logarithmic one because it gets too loud too quickly.
Other than that it's a nice pedal, a simple uncompressed Overdrive.

Thank you!
Make sure that you know and like the two circuits before you put them in one enclosure. I had put two different overdrives or one boost and one overdrive or two boosts in one box, but tastes change and I only ended up using one. Luckily, I got those sold.
Currently on my board are these 2-in-1s:
dual compressor (DOD 280 and RottenKomp)
Green Ringer + ZVex Machine (great noise combination)
Silicon Fuzz Face + Silicon Tonebender Mk2
LPB1 + Naga Viper
Runoffgroove TriVibe + STM Tremolo

General Questions / Mugshot minimum Volume
January 29, 2023, 12:57:33 PM
I played with some recent builds today, and that Mugshot, wow! Clear and clean with lots of punch, instant favorite.

One question though: when I turned on a booster before it the Volume was quite high, of course. Turned the Mugshot down to zero, and it was still rather loud.
Is that just mine, or can the Mugshot not be turned down to silent (same as a SHO)?
It's not a problem, just asking.
What are the differences between the Epipen and the FatPants jr., other than the Volume knob? Is this the 1590B version, just as the Imp is the 1590B of a previous A version?

Yeah, I know, inflation, Corona, global supply chains, raw materials... but JESUS CHRIST!

Maybe it's better for guys in the USA, but over here ... phew.

PCBs and diodes have landed safely with no problems at all. I'm looking at them right now.

Alright, thanks everyone!
I'll take the risk and place an order.
How long would it take a Madbean deliverey to arrive in California? I'll have to order at the right time so it arrives while she's there (2 weeks, I think).

I haven't posted here in a while, and I haven't built a pedal either.

Since Covid hit there have been problems with overseas shipping, and shipping rates have gone up more than is reasonable. And the parcels are on their way for a long time, and tax, and customs ......
It's handy that a friend of mine will travel to the USA in September, and she has agreed to bring back some PCBs, she just doesn't want any unforeseen surprises at the airports.
She would have one domestic flight, and then the flight back from USA to Europe.

This might be a stupid question, but you never know what rules for flights they come up with next, so I better ask. Maybe they see electronic components as a threat, who knows.
Can you bring several handfuls of PCBs on an American domestic flight, and on a transantlantic flight?
I guess it shouldn't be a problem if you have the invoice that's in the Madbean envelope the PCBs come in, right? Right?

Thank you!
