Build Reports / Lowrider
November 12, 2012, 03:54:21 PM
This baby is sweet, fired up first try!  I used 1n34a diodes.  For the cap value changes to increase upper octave, I liked a 1n in C10 and a 470p in C12 best...less fizzy but still very present upper octave.  was gonna do a 64 Impala in some three-wheel motion but decided to do go the road less traveled and do a lowrider bicycle instead lol.

Audio/Video Demos / Honeydripper

It's really too bad that my guitar playing skills peaked like 3 years ago. Oh well, here is some noodling. My apologizes for the solo being meh (especially the end). Using my epi les paul, bridge pickup (a SD screamin' demon), my Mesa Lone Star Special. Channel 2 does not have "drive" engaged so it is only 2 triodes, on the 5 watt setting. Channel 1 is on 30 watt setting. I'm happy to answer any other questions.  More infos in the youtube description.


Build Reports / Diptonizer / Honeydripper

Been wanting to build one of these for like 2 years.  Big thanks to Madbean for the awesome Honeydripper project and build docs.  Fired up first time, like all of bean's boards.  I wanted to do a little nod to the original, so bright yellow finish with hammered black on the sides, and yellow LED of course.

This was my first attempt at waterslides it came out pretty good all things considering.  But definitely more shrinkage than I anticipated LOL.  I must thank PPG and DuctTapeRiot, if not for their generous contributions to the BYOC forum I would not have been able to make a decent looking decal.

It sounds awesome!!!  My one issue is that the sweep control is really only effective in the last 80% of the pot rotation, but I am loving this pedal.

Mods: R5=220K, C2=1n, R21=10K, D1/D2=Bat41 asymmetrical, D3/D4=NOS 1n60.

(maybe I am crazy or maybe there is a slight error on the schematic, when I was taking voltages with only the charge pump IC in, I was not getting 18v at pins 7 of both CA3080s, but I was getting it at pin 6???)

General Questions / Honeydripper capacitor question
August 29, 2012, 10:19:20 PM
Hey guys, I did a quick search but did not find an answer for this.  I ordered some parts from mammoth, and got the Nichicon 'lytics.  They clearly say they are bipolar on mammoths site, but I did not notice that when I ordered. 

So will bipolar caps work in the 2u2 spots: C9, C10 and C11? 

I have normal polarized 'lytics for all the other ones.  My gut says it is no big deal, but I just want to double check before I solder.


I want to build a mosferatu clone, what components would I need to sub alternate values for?
