Build Reports / Fabbed Wolfshirt Build
« on: April 08, 2011, 06:42:25 PM »
Here are the photos form my Wolfshirt build.  Thanks to the fabled boards, it fired right up on the frost try!  The germanium diodes were delicate and I broke two of them.  Fortunately, I had some sprares.  There is fuzz and volume a-plenty!  I think I'll call it "The Red Menace"...

Open Discussion / Madbean vs. Bluebeard Fuzz
« on: March 30, 2011, 12:15:44 PM »
I just wanted to post a general topic regarding a comparison of any Madbean pedals with a Bluebeard Fuzz.

Has anyone had any hands-on time with a Blue beard or input of how it might compare to, let's say, a Wolfshirt?

The sound of a BBF has become something of a legend.  But acquiring one is very difficult.

Any thoughts?

Open Discussion / New Dig Dug Boards

Any chance that the Dig Dug boards will be fabbed?  I find the fabbed boards way easier to work with for soldering.

Hello everyone,

I have just made my (first) attempt at wiring up my Dig Dug.  I've managed to avoid my usual 3pdt issues on this one.  However, a new problem has popped up.

I get a good signal in bypass and a good signal when engaged.  But the engaged signal in unaffected (no wah at all) I can hear the clock ticks and that changes when messing with the speed pot (as I would expect).  But the signal has no wah and no LEDs light.  It sounds to me like a pot board wiring issue.

Any thoughts?


Build Reports / AquaBoy Build

I have just completed my AquaBoy build and couldn't be happier!

The new fab'd boards make soldering so many parts a snap and the layout of the pots in relation to the enclosure made the final box-up trouble free.

Many thanks Brain for producing such a quality product!

General Questions / Mouser Part #s for 9mm panel mount pots
« on: November 16, 2010, 08:25:10 AM »
Does anyone have the Mouser part# for 9mm panel mount pots like the ones you might use for the Firebomb or the Zombii ?

I am trying to minnimize the number of places I order parts from and mouser does not have a photo of some of their pots.  As a result I ordered the wrong pots.  IMO, the fewer places I have to order parts from the less I'll have to pay for total shipping for a project.

Many Thanks!

Open Discussion / MOSFET Transistor Modes

What is an "Enhanced Mode" transistor and how does it differ from a non-Enhanced Mode one?

What difference could it have in a circuit?

Tech Help - Projects Page / Firebomb Pot Tapers
« on: November 01, 2010, 11:47:08 AM »
I have just ordered my parts to build the Firebomb.  However, I have been unable to find 9mm panel mount pots 5k audio taper (A).  Smallbear has 5k reverse audio (C) and 10k audio (A).  I opted for the 10kA.  But what would be the over all effect of the higher pots?  Would they be louder?


Tech Help - Projects Page / Sabertooth Bite-ing too much
« on: October 15, 2010, 07:36:35 AM »
I'vs just finished building the Sabertooth as my first pedal.  All works great except the "BITE" control seems to be inconsistant and IMO gating too much that I don't seem to be able to control.  It is possible I could have fried something during the soldering?  Would changing to a different pot value help this?

Many thanks!
