Open Discussion / Aion Kits: What are those switches?
« on: December 17, 2018, 10:39:33 PM »
Does anyone know where to source the stomp switches that Aion is using in his new kits?

Open Discussion / DIY Cassette Echo

This is the best sounding version I've heard. Anyone here ever try to make one of these?

Apparently this is a non gooped P2 that was once for sale on Reverb...

Found the link in this thread:

General Questions / Current Lover, dry kill option?
« on: January 26, 2018, 11:29:12 AM »
I've been talking with some dudes on the Gilmour forum and they like to place the Mistress in a parallel blender. On the MB Current Lover, how would you achieve a dry kill option? I remember Scruffie talking about the 60/40 blend that is crucial to the Mistress sound. Was it set by a resister value?

Open Discussion / Smallbear Customer Service
« on: January 15, 2018, 10:52:52 AM »
Hi folks, just curious if any of you know whether or not Steve has employees that are handling the emails at Smallbear, or does he do this himself? I'm not terribly upset at the moment as I know mistakes happen from time to time (this thread is not an angry rant), I'm just trying to determine what the next step would be to have a shipping error resolved is... as it's dragging on a bit. I'm not sure whether I've been communicating with Steve or an employee. Thoughts?

General Questions / Are there any Boss SD-1 Projects?
« on: December 22, 2017, 03:05:40 PM »
Just picked up a Boss Super Overdrive SD-1 for like $20. I kinda dig it! Are there currently any projects for the SD-1 kicking around? Is Aion's Tube Screamer board a possible candidate? The SD-1 sounds like a warmer version of the Cornish SS-2/Duplex Drive with less bass.

Open Discussion / Ross Flanger
« on: November 19, 2017, 08:31:36 PM »
You guys ever try this thing? I just got the mid 80s "black box" version in a trade and it sounds spectacular. I've dialed it in to my usual Mistress settings and almost prefer it over the Current Lover. Haven't look under the hood but I think these had the SAD1024 chip... what a great chip for flanging. Is the Ross another MXR clone or is it something original?

Open Discussion / Boss MZ-2 Digital Metalizer
« on: November 06, 2017, 10:31:33 AM »
Has anyone looked under the hood of the Boss MZ-2 Digital Metalizer? Any idea if the distortion circuit is an adapted version of an older Boss classic or unique to the pedal? I found one local for cheap and thought it may be worth a look. Here is a clip from Kitrae with just the distortion into a Fender Twin:

*Just noticed there may be a Tube Driver and CE-2 on there as well

General Questions / Total Recall powered by Strymon Zuma
« on: October 18, 2017, 10:41:59 AM »
I know these power supplies just came out rather recently... I've started to wonder if the 24v center positive daisy chain output could power a Total Recall safely? It's rated at 1000mA fyi.


General Questions / Stereo Mistress?
« on: September 27, 2017, 11:18:24 PM »
Just thinking out loud, but considering the original w/SAD1024 had two delay lines (I think that's what they're called) in parallel... could a stereo (dual mono) Mistress be built using the MN3007 Current Lover? Can the controls be ganged? I just finished setting up a stereo rig and started to wonder what a stereo flanger would sound like.

General Questions / Aion Aurora Comp
« on: June 21, 2017, 07:43:25 AM »
Sourcing parts at the moment. If I were to use a 1megC pot* for the sustain control... would it provide more action at max compression or low compression? I can never remember how the tapers work.

Also, does anyone have a Boss CS-2 parts list? I'm trying to get that classic Boss vibe out of the Aurora (sans BA662).

*build doc calls for a 500kC

General Questions / Current Lover New vs. Old
« on: June 03, 2017, 10:00:42 AM »
Has anyone had a chance to compare the old Current Lover with the new 2015 revision? I'm currently doing a shootout with a friends 2015 vs two of the previous iterations (MN3007 @12v). I am finding that the 2015 version does not take dirt pedals and muffs very well. Could this possibly be due to the new opamp output stage? Is it possible to build the 2015 without the opamp output gain stage? Food for thought...

General Questions / Mosfets as diodes in the Big Muff?
« on: May 31, 2017, 09:23:50 AM »
Just curious if any has tried mosfets as diodes in a big muff build? Worth exploring? Also a link to Coda Effects who has retrieved the old "big muff mods and tweaks" page that has passed on into the great archive in the sky.

General Questions / Boss CS-2 Clone
« on: October 29, 2016, 10:53:29 AM »
I am curious what compressor project I should look at if I wanted a decent approximation of the classic Boss CS-2?

Open Discussion / "The Gilmour" Mistress and the Current Lover 2015
« on: August 24, 2016, 03:40:44 PM »
Did anybody here ever build "The Gilmour" mistress? If so, what is the difference between it and the Current Lover 2015?
