Open Discussion / Single Knobby FV-1 Reverb
« on: September 07, 2018, 10:48:39 PM »
Sorry, been out of the game for awhile just lurking about when I get the chance.  But the dreamtime pedal I saw demo'd on facebook recently got me thinking.  Those chips can do so much, as Brian had demo'ed.  But how about just a badass "spring reverb" setting?  One knobby of awesomeness.  Isn't that all the EHX Holy Grail is?  Sure there's more, (hall, flerb), but I'm ready for the bashing if I'm way off course, lol.  I love my big box Holy Grail, but it's lost some sparkle and charm over the last 10 years.  That's either my playing, ears, or circui.... naww, probably my playing, lol.

General Questions / Getting into Wah's
« on: April 21, 2017, 03:34:48 PM »
Wondering how I should start and what I should get.  I'd like to build one of the vero projects on the tagboard page, or even do the wah from BYOC because I like the idea of all the switching.  So many options for the circuit itself, but does anyone make a good wah kit with just the hardware?

General Questions / I have these big boxes.....
« on: March 29, 2015, 09:44:57 AM »
I've got these big enclosures and I'm wondering what I could use them for.  Any ideas?

They're kinda slanted, and then flat on the top rear with slots in the back.  One hole in the top middle for a big ass rotary switch in there.  I have no idea what these were used for, or where they came from.

They're just sitting around, but I'm thinking of doing some kind of a multi with a headphone amp inside so I can use it as a little desktop practice amp?  I don't know.

here's some pics

General Questions / 15v Zener?
« on: March 28, 2015, 07:51:05 AM »
Anybody know the part # for the 15v Zener like on the road rage, harb, etc?  I can find 13v, 11v, 18v, but no luck finding 15v.  From just googling around I think it's 1N4744, but not quite sure.  ???

General Questions / Measuring gain of BJT's?
« on: November 22, 2014, 08:23:47 PM »
I was wondering how to measure the gain of BJT's.  I'm messing around with different fuzz circuits and I've just been plugging different trannies in to see how they sound, but have no idea what gain ranges I'm messing with.  I've looked at data sheets, but some of the ranges are pretty broad.

I was hoping there was a circuit I could breadboard and figure this out.

I couldn't find much info, looks like a lot going on in there.  Fromel cloned it I guess. 

Tech Help - Projects Page / Nutron II LED "off-time" *FIXED!*
« on: July 06, 2014, 09:34:48 AM »
This thing sounds great, but the LED is staying off for more time than the "on-time". Is this normal? I've tweaked the trims with no luck, swapped out all the IC's with known working chips, used different charge pumps, and checked all traces.  Could it be the 2n4401?  It just seems like I have phasing, then it's off for more time then it's on. 

Tech Help - Projects Page / BS250?
« on: May 04, 2014, 03:52:00 AM »
Don't seem to have any of these BS250's for the SKII, can I use a BS170 in it's place?  I tried googling an equivalent and looking at the datasheets,  and I'm thinking I can.   After my brain exploded, I figured I'd ask on here just to make sure.  Thanks

Open Discussion / Best USB audio interface?
« on: February 17, 2014, 12:02:24 AM »
Lookin for a cheapie, nothing fancy.  Thinking about the M-Audio M track.  The M track is around $100 and looks like everything I'd need, but wondering if there's a better one for the same price that some of you's guys use.

General Questions / Is the Slow Loris "based" on the Landgraff Mo'D?
« on: July 07, 2013, 05:42:26 AM »
I was gonna build a vero of the Mo'D, but if the Slow Loris can do it I may just do that.  I read somewhere it was but couldn't remember if it was in this forum or another one. 

General Questions / 2n404a equivalent?
« on: April 04, 2013, 08:48:31 PM »
Hey guys, I was just wondering if there was any equivalent to the 2n404a that I may already have? Can I just use any other germ tranny?  I also have some from Russia but I have no idea what they are or if they'd work.  I got them on ebay a long time ago.  They have russian on them and "8804"  "TT404F"  "N4160783".  I can socket it and try out some with different values, but thought I'd check and see if there's any other ones I can order too.  Thanks

Open Discussion / Opening PDF files
« on: December 10, 2011, 08:48:00 AM »
I can't seem to get these open now that I have a new PC, anybody else have this problem or should I just get a Mac, lol?  I can download them and view them that way so no biggie, just thought I'd see.

General Questions / RF Noise with LaVache Boost Switch
« on: August 13, 2011, 06:30:35 AM »
I'm picking up some NPR when I engage the Boost switch on the LaVache.  Anybody else have this problem?  I had RF no matter what when I had it breadboarded, but after I boxed it up the only time I hear the radio is when I have the boost engaged.  

Any ideas?

Requests / Some kind of op amp fuzz besides the muff
« on: July 18, 2011, 07:19:37 PM »
Just sayin  ;D ,  I really like how the Retro Channel fuzz sounds and I think it's op amp driven instead of trannys.  Some fuzzy big muffage is still my fav effect, but would like to try something with an op amp (s).  Anybody have any schems for something like the Retro Channel Fuzz?
