Open Discussion / Weener
« on: March 26, 2012, 07:50:48 AM »
 So I finished (?) playing around with my Weener and I knew going in that it could turn out ok - I used 1/2 watt carbon comp resistors for everything (tight squeeze in some instances) using stock values throughout (including caps & trannies)

I'm quite satisfied, specially since I a/b it against a mid 90's CryBaby 535 (not the Q version) - and find that besides missing a bit of "quackiness" in the low mids my output volume could be higher - I will revisit later tonight after the kid is asleep and add a lower (33k?) value to R1 to hopefully match the output volume that the CryBaby was giving me - then, there's also a bit of high frequency "air" that my weener is missing. I wonder if it will "regain" it so-to-speak once I change the value of R1 - could it be the result of using the carbon comps???

I really do like it otherwise - the dead-silent Ikar pot is so cool!!

Any advise and suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you much!

Open Discussion / Single Sided Sunking

I was able to salvage a botched etching and will be trying a single sided Sunking - Does anyone know the pot values that I need off hand - I'm not home and don't have the version 2 doc in front of me...


Open Discussion / Brain fart?
« on: January 30, 2012, 10:01:50 AM »
  I'm having a moment of "Unclarity"...

can I use a SPDT in place of a SPST? and how do I wire it?? (two wires, one jump?)

I'm confused, all of a sudden simple things are way out of control..


Open Discussion / Op Amp?

Would a short in the Green Bean circuit necessarily fry the op amp? I don't want to risk frying another one if it is the case.


P.S. Sorry for being almost too vague!

General Questions / Aristocrat Caps (C9 & C20)
« on: June 18, 2011, 06:54:00 PM »
 I asked about this in another thread...
   I have a couple of Metal Film Caps left over from something else. Can I use these huge yellow monsters (105k) in the C9 & C20 locations??? I plan on breadboarding them later to find out, but figured I asked first.

Thanks all,


It looks like one of these
