Build Reports / jmk test rig
« on: February 01, 2020, 07:49:44 AM »
decided that I had outgrown my old test rig and wanted a more streamlined all in one more flexible solution. Built the jmk testing rig and added a variable voltage ala madbean test rig via a road rage board I had.I decided to cram 10 pounds of shit in a 5 pound bag and stuff it all in a 1590bb box. the only road rage i had was a bypass board so that made it a tighter fit. added a 12v tap wired off the 15v with a 12v regulator wired in series. love this thing. sharpie labeling ftw!
old box:

Build Reports / Collosalus and Harbinger 1.5
« on: January 30, 2020, 05:59:51 AM »
First two builds of the year. Collosalus and Harbinger 1.5. both were fun builds and went together smoothly. No finish on the enclosures yet cause it's too cold in Detroit for doing anything in the garage. Thanks Bean for the insightful build docs, couldn't imagine building these projects without them.

General Questions / Harbinger Ledr positioning
« on: January 20, 2020, 09:06:08 AM »
I'm ready to solder in my ledr's in my harbinger 1.5 and I see people put them laying flat, pointing at the bulb, yada yada yada...what's the vintage correct orientation? Thanks guys

VFE Projects / Regular true bypass
« on: January 14, 2020, 09:00:15 AM »
Probably a dumb question but do you have to use the soft relay bypass or can I wire it up with a regular 3pdt switch?

Mods / switchable regulator
« on: January 14, 2020, 08:22:45 AM »
I'm wiring up a test  rig with a RR on a rotary switch for variable power for different effects. I want to further mod it to make the 15v regulator selectable between 15v and 12v. To wire up the two regulators would I just use 2 a 3dpt switch and solder the regulators to each side and wire the center lugs to regulator pads on the RR? Am I overthinking it?

Build Reports / whole lot of builds
« on: December 14, 2019, 07:27:11 AM »
The past couple months have been crazy. in August I had carpal tunnel surgery. Kids started school in September and my dog got cancer and passed away at the end of September. to cope with the loss of my best friend I dove into building the past couple months to deal with it and keep my mind off things. Work has been crazy, the holidays and family and a road trip thrown in, I finished up a load of builds that were tested but not boxed. This week I drilled all the boxes, painted them, labeled, and wired up all the off board stuff so I'm doing a big group shot. not included in the Aquaboy deluxe and Dod 440 I did separate build reports on. Included is an Aion Rat, Fuzzdog harmonic percolator, fuzzdog phase 45, madbean octavia, guitarpcb small clone chorus, pedal pcb ghost echo reverb, Aion mastotron, 1776 rub-a-dub deluxe and lectric effects bad stone phaser.

Also in the second picture is a photobomb of our road trip cause. We have a npd (new puppy day) and he likes to chill in his crate while I build. I'll do a separate post on that later. next up is a naughty fish that will probably be my last build of the year.

Build Reports / DOD 440 envelope filter

Bone stock with xvive reissue vactrol and tl022 for the ic.

Build Reports / Auquaboy deluxe
« on: November 23, 2019, 01:06:06 PM »
Aquaboy Deluxe with xvive mn3005s running at 9v. Went together without issue. Calibration went quick too thanks to the awesome build documents from Brian. Dymo labels and hammered paint per my usual diy simple aesthetics. Sounds so good thru my tungsten buckwheat. so much better than my old mxr carbon copy. Im setting this one up for longer repeats and my regular aquaboy for slapback. such a fun build.

Open Discussion / Testing & calibration
« on: November 16, 2019, 07:59:05 PM »
How do you like to test pedals and calibrate them? I like to lay on the floor and listen thru headphones and dial them in. Amongst my spaghetti pile of cords and unboxed circuits I feel at one with the electrons. The warmth of my tubes glowing and the fan blowing from my two notes torpedo in my hair makes me hone in on those rock star tones and gives my builds more mojo. In all fairness, I prefer the headphones thru my main amp so I can dial them in thru my rig so they sound best thru my amp. It's my ritual and with the attenuation of the headphones I can block out the wife and kids!

General Questions / Eqd ghost echo predelay
« on: October 25, 2019, 01:56:42 PM »
Is there a way to dial out the preday completley? Stock has 30ms of predelay with the attack pot at minimum. Ideally I'd like it to start at 0. Thanks

Build Reports / Electric mistress
« on: October 24, 2019, 05:09:08 PM »
This has been a hard one to box up. The build went smooth and fired up without fuss. Calibration went smooth. As I was building it my my best friend and companion was dying. This was our last build. My dog Gibson who was always by my side passed away three weeks ago while the paint was curing. He had cancer and would do every build by my side. Everytime I tried to box it up the past 3 weeks I couldn't do it cause he wasn't there. So this one is for you Gibby.
