How Do I? Beginner's Paradise. / Retrograde tone stack
« on: December 14, 2018, 08:55:48 AM »
Hey Guys, has anyone added a tone stack to the retro grade and if so, where did you place it.


I'm looking at and wondered how it'd be wired up inside, I'd like to build one :) can't find any info on Google!

General Questions / Can't get rid of switch pop
« on: March 19, 2017, 06:39:47 AM »

I've got a problemo with switch popping. I've built 100s of fx now but this particular one is giving me so jip!

The switch pops.
I've grounded the input, I've added the and resistor and cap. I've removed the led totally. I've replaced the 3pdt and power socket.

It doesn't do it in the test rig.
It doesn't do it if the input jack is not plugged in.

Running out of ideas.  The effect is working fine.

It's a swamp thing tremolo.

Any ideas?!

General Questions / switching question
« on: August 20, 2016, 05:58:52 AM »
its probably really simple, but I cant get my head around this for some reason - hopefully someone can help.

Looking at adding a second 3pdt to an enclosure. The first will be the main on and off bypass, the second 3pdt to add in a second effect such as an octave to a fuzz but if you click stomp one it goes directly to off for all rather than just off for effect one.

Hope that makes sense.

General Questions / Magna vibe power squeak
« on: April 04, 2016, 04:53:48 PM »
, I'm putting a nagnor vibe together. It a got a squeak which is coming from the power I think. It's squeaking in time with the led pulsing.

Any ideas how to get rid?

General Questions / Animato questions!
« on: February 18, 2016, 01:32:30 PM »
I'm working on an animato clone from the confirmed schematic that's floating about the web.

So, my pcb appears to be laid out correctly. It's just so noisy! Like, wind tunnel noisy! But when playing it's actually quite a nice pedal.

Has anyone built this? Is it a noisy pedal?

Alternatively, does anyone know how I could build a clone using a bmp board with some mods perhaps?

Any help appreciated.



Looking for any info on a cab switching system that I can build into a pedal.

The issue I can forsee is the minute time that no load is with the amp so I imagine that there must be something internally to over come that?

Thanks in advance

Hiya, can anyone suggest a straight swap for a c2240 transistor?

I don't want to bend legs so pinout to match.
