Tech Help - Projects Page / Naughty Fish Help
« on: August 04, 2014, 03:34:34 PM »
Hey there,

I have a Naughty Fish build that I have finished but I am not 100% happy with it.  Im coming a from a big box Q-Tron, so I may be slightly biased.  This unit is much more snappy and percussive in the top end and lacks in the bottom end than my Q-Tron which is more full and round all the way around. 

Is there any way to...
Increase the depth of the filter in Lo-pass mode.  I feel like my filter is not getting low enough.  If I am in the "down" position it gets really low, but when I'm in the "up" position, it only gets slightly lower than bandpass mode.  It doesn't get that classic low filter growl like my Q-Tron does
If i increase the sweep pot, it gets better, but still does not get into the territory I would like.  I replaced the Sweep pot with a 10k, which helped a tiny bit more, but still not there...

Also Is there a decent way to increase headroom of the entire unit and/or volume output? It is flirting right on the line of unity gain and would love some more output so I did not have to run the gain too high (as you can hear the clipping)

Just thought I would see if anyone had any suggestions. 


General Questions / Quasar bass parts?
« on: January 31, 2011, 04:49:52 PM »
Hey guys,

I built a Quasar and it is cool, but not for me. A bass player friend of mine has been wanting the Bass RC Booster for his rig.  I think I am going to revamp mine for him. 

Any ideas on the differences in a RC vs RC bass pedal?

Is ii just the input cap or possibly more tweaks in the tone section?

Just seeing if anyone might have an idea. Thanks!

Tech Help - Projects Page / Macheen Low output unity volume
« on: January 20, 2011, 08:12:41 PM »
Hey guys,

My Macheen I just built has pretty low output... aka unity happens when the Output knob is up all the way. 
On a real Machine, unity is usually around 1oclock I thought. 
All my pot values are correct, solder is good with no cold joints.

Is it possible one of the Bs170's is being finicky or is this just the particular design?


Tech Help - Projects Page / Aristocrat: Missing R14 value and R25?
« on: October 18, 2010, 12:41:57 PM »
The Aristocrat page is missing the R14 value.

The schematic vs the layout numbers are all different so Im not able to use that to match anything up.

I do assume R14 is a 10k?

Also, there is no R25 on the layout. 

Just looking for insight! Thanks!
