Open Discussion / dotted eight delay using Zero point DD or sea urchin
« on: January 27, 2015, 09:57:57 AM »
Hey mates!
look, we are currently playing a song from Die Toten Rosen (Tage wie diese) and i was setting up the DD-7 of my friend in order to get the dotted eight delay.
My question is, do you know some trick to get the same with the Zero point DD or sea urchin without a Tap tempo?
the trial and error is exhausting...
thanks for any tip

Open Discussion / 3d printer for electronics. what are your thoughts?

I think soon we will see Brian's projects here updated for 3d printer...:P

Hey guys,
this is a sort of contiuation of my last post (sorry for that).
I was reading about attenuators and it seems to be an option for my Volume problem on a Marshall Haze 40w.
I also found that some people add a "attenuator" which is basically a Volume know on the effects loop. I understood the differences between both ways of reducing overall volume but still have some doubts:
with the volume pot on the effects loop would be possible to crunk it up the amp volume and still be possible to reduce the volume keeping the tone?
What are your thoughts ?: build an attenuator (any good layout for a 40w amp) or a Master volume control?
My main target is to keep a nice tone (doesnt need to be perfect) with a relatively low volume for rehearsals.
thanks a lot for any suggestion!

Dear Experts.
as usual another trouble on my way.
I“ve got some time ago a Marshall Haze 40w (2x EL34 and Celestion G12T-66 12 ).
Im trying to setup the volume/tone for rehearsal. The damn thing is too, tooo loud already on the clean channel.
The volume pot starts to kick on the 2 (8“clock) and it really goes till 11 :P
I read lods of information regarding on how to get the best sound out of it regarding volume/tone. Some people suggests attenuator, but i“ve never used and have no clue about it (sharing experiences highly welcome :)

So, to fit all the band, i have to set my volume to 3 max 4, which is already loud for a small room. Sounds crap of course, no juice from the Valves :(
Somehow, i started to experiment and after long 6 hours i managed to reduce the volume by adjusting the volume of my pedals.
i reduced a lot the volume of the pedals and then, increased the volume of the Amp (clean channel). it sounds ok (just ok).
i have a strong feedback as well which goes away when i reduce the volume of my Fuzz face ( Amp>Crybaby>TS>FF>ZeroPoint DD)
of course, if i want to turn the pedal off for a clean signal, will blow some brains in the room :S
Im kind of lost on the possibilites of improvement.
I would like to ask your help here considering that i still want to keep this Amp (low budget :( )
other question: is a 40W really too much for rehearsal?
thanks a lot for any help!!!

Open Discussion / CD player X mp3 player, different output sound
« on: August 14, 2014, 11:41:32 AM »
Hey Guys,
im intrigued with a new problem.
when i play a CD player through my band's mixer in order to hear the song through the PAs everything is ok. But when i use an ipad or iphone player, it sounds like some filtering is happening. Sometimes i can hear just the backing vocals of a song for example.
im using the same cable, just switching the ipod or iphone X CD player..
any clue of what is happening?
thanks a lot in adnvace

Open Discussion / Ribbon wires for Potis in Europe
« on: July 10, 2014, 06:12:56 AM »
Hi guys,
Does anyone has a good suggestion for ribbon wires which i could buy in EU?
I can find some on ebay, but it“s like jumper wires and i think that are to thin.
Thanks in advance

Build Reports / Cupcake swirled compressor
« on: July 02, 2014, 12:33:11 PM »
Hey guys!
After some worldcup holidays i had time to finish the cupcake for a friend.
I have nothing to add that has been already said. It's a smooth compressor which don't affect the tone (IMO) and that can be used as a slight booster!
Really great! It was quite a tight fit and i still suffering with the envirotex to cover the sides of the enclosure! Here a tip: after mixing the resin, leave it rest for 10 min untill it get a higher viscosity! Than shrinking on the edges are minimized!
Here some shots...

And the guts:

Hope u like it! Any critic highly welcome!

Open Discussion / Double flush: little distoRtion
« on: June 13, 2014, 03:34:52 PM »
Hey guys!
Just tested my double flush temporarely using a 10k log for the intensity! Well, im very happy with it! The only thing that il not sure if its ok is: when i adjust the BAL to full, i get s slight distortion( crunch). I thought that the balance its only to mix between the wet and dry signal, something wrong here or is this normal?

Open Discussion / Double flush tremolo - Pot substitution
« on: June 10, 2014, 01:35:19 PM »
Hey guys,
I have only 10K log to use for the intensity pot. I know that is ok to substitute in certain cases but im not sure here.
I believe it will just respond slowly (have to turn more for higher intens.) but still do the job. is this correct?

Open Discussion / Perfect tone transfer with magazine paper
« on: June 05, 2014, 12:52:51 PM »
Im so happy lalala lala !
After some trials ive managed ro get a real good tone transfer without having to do any extra work with a sharpie! Uhuuuuuu!

Hey guys,
just reading the notes of the Retrograde and there is an example using an SPDT (on/on) instead of an on/off.
i have a DPDT on/on . could i also somehow use it? i understand the the 2 rows of 3 lugs are isolated from each other, just not sure if i could use only one row as a spdt..
sorry if its a stupid idea...:P

hey guys, as usual i have to post some problems with my last build. It was working fine but i didnt know that the volume should be muuuch louder. I've read some posts and followed some suggestions.
i cann hear the full power on Q2 but in Q3 its the same as with my output, much lower.
ive changed transistors , 5088's and the same issue.
i was poking with the audio probe and i noticed a decay in volume on C8. One side is loud and the other side is quiter, but i dont know if this is normal or not.  Capacitors can reduce input volume or just filter frequences?
thanks for any help

Build Reports / Mudbunny Big muff :P
« on: May 26, 2014, 10:24:36 AM »
Hey guys!
i've just finished my mudbunny and i loved it! Thanks a lot Brian!!
Its the first time using a 3PDT board that i found on web feom Mr. G (thanks for sharing)
I love the versatility of this pedal!
The only thing that im not sure is about the volume. in my build, its starts to get the same volume as bypassed at around 3:00 and louder from 5:00. its normal?
Here some pics and, as always, open for critics!;)

And the gutshot :S

Hope u like it;)

Open Discussion / Cupcake compressor - how to regulate it?
« on: May 25, 2014, 02:15:30 PM »
Hey guys.
just finish the Cupcake for a friend of mine. Im not much familiar with compressor so i need your help. The only mod that i did from the original is to add a 10k A instead of B pot.
First thing, adjusting the SUS trim , i get no sound on "3" and distortion on "1".
For me is working as a booster :P. To get still a clean sound, i have to turn only 1/8 the trim but the volume is already increased. I still can set it before having the distortion as it is described on the Build info. However, i dont really notice big difference from 1/4 to max compression. Starts to distorce very easy.
Just need to know what is the best way to set the compressor.
thanks  a lot for any help
