Build Reports / "Atomic Punk" Laserwolf build. YouTube link added
« on: March 16, 2015, 07:32:40 PM »
Here is my second DIY pedal.  Yes I said second build ever (my 1st being the chunk chunk). Laserwolf build here and trying to stay with the Van Halen theme, which is what this pedal is designed for, it is named "Atomic Punk" probably my favorite song from the first album.  First off, this is a hell of an undertaking(my eyes are shot!) I did not wire in a 4tdp switch, I decided to hardwire my effects combination.  The enclosure is a 1590DD from BLMS. The "Kevison Effects" thing is just my first mid and last names smashed together. I thought it was cool.  Sounds great through my homemade 1987x plexi head. Hope you all like. Peace Madbeaners!!

Open Discussion / Laserwolf Time
« on: March 10, 2015, 01:25:28 PM »
I don't know about the rest of ya'll but I'm starting my official "laserwolf watch" this week. Which requires me running over anyone that gets in my way as I race to the mailbox, hoping, praying that the laserwolf pcb I scored on pre-order is there.  Im sure the build report page will be howling later this week. I am very curious as to what others do with theirs.
Peace out madbeaners

Open Discussion / Effects loop attenuator
« on: March 06, 2015, 07:24:23 PM »
Ok so I don't know if anyone else has done this, so here it goes. I have been a guitarist for 30 years, and playing out live the biggest problem I have is not cutting through the mix during my solos. We do not have a sound guy. So I have searched all over the net for a solution and the only thing I can find are suggestions like: "use a tube screamer", or "put a treble boost in the front of the amp". But doing that only adds more gain.  What I need is more VOLUME!  So I came up with this volume attenuator that runs between the send and return of the effects loop. It's super easy and cheap.(always a good thing). Fits in a 1590A so it takes up little space but makes a hugh impact. I made a quick diagram. You set the amp to your lead volume and adjust the pedal for your rhythm volume.  When you hit the pedal it opens the loop to the lead volume. The dc jack is only for the led. Hope this helps other guitar players out there. Peace Madbeaners.

Tech Help - Projects Page / 1 meg reverse pot in smoothie build
« on: March 05, 2015, 04:28:12 PM »
Is it possible to use a C1M pot in the smoothie build instead of the 500K reverse pot? If so, what will the difference be if any?

I have a few L78L05 regulators and my project calls for an LM78L05.  Can anyone tell me the difference if there is any?

Build Reports / Truffle Shuffle
« on: January 22, 2015, 03:04:16 PM »
Though it's not completely finished(ie. paint and decal), this is my first diy pedal build.  I chose to do my rite of passage with project #1, a chunk chunk I named "The Truffle Shuffle". You Goonies out there get it! First and foremost I must thank icecycle66 for donating the 25k pot I needed, and a big big shout out to my bud from the 'burgh Billy (wgc) for the very generous pif I received.  Stock chunk build, nothing special except that trimmer 1 is backed way down to tame this beast. I decided to dry the diy route because there is really nothing on the mass market that I like, and if there was, it is way too expensive.  So I'll try to make them myself.  I have already built a Marshall 1987 model 50watt plexi and homemade Strat.  Thanks fellow madbeaners for welcoming me in.

Tech Help - Projects Page / Pork Barrel modding for bass
« on: January 12, 2015, 05:15:02 PM »
Want to build the pork barrel chorus for my bass player.  How would I modify it for bass?

Can you use a 20K-A pot instead of 25K-A in chunk-chunk build? I dont have a 16mm 25k-a pot.

Can you use a 20K-A pot instead of 25K-A in chunk-chunk build? Can't seem to find a 25K-A 16mm solder lug pot.
