Build Reports / Hot Mess, finally boxed
« on: July 01, 2014, 02:22:29 AM »
I built this like 3 years ago, when GPCB was etched boards. It's an IC Big Muff. Been happily rocking it ever since, plain box taped shut, but never properly boxed it until now. The holdup was printing a label that would stick to the box and hold up to the rattle can clear coat treatment. I still need to sort out something for the LED. I think I run wires more neatly nowadays, but all of that is forgotten now that the box is shut and the screws are finally in for good  ;D

Build Reports / Cave Dweller (with relay switching)

Finally boxed up the Cave Dweller, in 1590b with top mounted jacks and relay switching.

I OSHParked a board for Mictester's relay switching scheme with a momentary stomp, using the Neutrik-alike plastic jacks from Tayda. They suck, but it works. 0805 passives on the underside (my first SMD!). Just enough room for a thinline DC jack (from BLMS). I'm gonna use low profile jacks next time I try to topmount in a 1590b.

I tried a "bicolor stone" texturized spraypaint, which came out more texturized than bicolor, but close enough. Riffed on some cave painting with India ink. The LED just points toward the hole; some hot glue works well enough to transmit its light.

Build Reports / Name Dropper

I scored three sweet OC75s from badgerific in his holiday PIF, like nearly two years ago, and finally got them into a tonebender mkii board and boxed up. I did the layout in Eagle, starting from culturejam's layout (the image is no longer online), with board mounted vertical pots from Tayda. The enclosure is a B sized trapezoid (1590TRPB); I used a laser printable clear label and hastily sprayed on a few coats of clear acrylic. It sounds great to my ears--nice and smooth. I don't get a lot of range from the Attack pot (1K), but it cleans up nicely with the guitar's volume pot.

I mounted the board so that the signal flow is left-to-right, as are the jacks. I may regret that eventually, but I doubt it. In any case, the board can be mounted right-to-left (the knobs would be farther back that way).

The board layout is shared at OSH Park. A BOM is in the works. It measures 60mm/2.3" from the pots' outside edges when they're mounted. They need at least 23mm/.9" of vertical space when mounted inside a box.

I have a few extra boards, including some that are slightly longer (70mm/2.75"; same vertical). I'd be happy to trade for similarly small and simple boards!
