So I have a 1776 RDD reverb and an EHX LPB-1 in a single enclosure.

3pdt switch I want to be the main bypass. There is also a 4pdt switch in there that I'm using to lift a resistor on the RDD and also bringing the LPB-1 into the path. My issue is I used the two circuits in one enclosure wiring and all that does is bring each circuit in and out individually.

What I need is for the 3dpt to bypass everything and the 4pdt is used to toggle between two channels basically: standard and fully wet (which has the LPB1 in the chain). Signal path order is RDD>LPB-1

How do I do this? Anyone got a diagram they could link?

What are you using for your pedal builds? Stuff I have is 24 gauge stranded but after examining some prior builds, Iíve noticed issues with them not tinning as well or easily breaking if I have to remove the circuit for repair/modding later.

Open Discussion / Components inventory/order lists?
« on: May 29, 2021, 01:05:42 PM »
I have a box of resistors and caps that I have organized and use for builds but I haven't ordered anything on a large scale in years and need to replenish my stock.

Does anyone have a document/list they use as a reference for what to order?

If so, you mind sharing it? If it includes switches and stuff like that, that is awesome.

Open Discussion / Brown Burr OPA2134U - no longer made?
« on: November 21, 2020, 05:54:39 PM »
I was looking to get some SMD ones for my Line 6 DL-4. I can't seem to find any. I saw that Texas Instruments bought BB in 2000. Does this mean the chips are still being made and the same quality as before but now from TI?

If I google just "OPA2134U" I see a lot of results from China but are these low quality knock offs?


Open Discussion / Transformer isolated A/B/Y layout

I just got the transformers for this but I'm not sure how to read the pins on the transformer from the schematic. Can anyone take a look at this?

Open Discussion / Buff enclosure clear coat?
« on: May 05, 2020, 03:14:02 PM »
Do you all buff or do a finish wet sand one you're applied your clear coat? I have two enclosures drying. I used some Rustoleum Painter's touch X2 clear like shown below. The clear came out good with no real imperfections but I wanted to know if you buff the finish before assembling the pedal.;206495767;204644771;205723773;202058776;301068197;204644772;206560110;302690091;204707453;300231692;205395514;204655493;202058511;204644764;205395502;202058834;203175966;307430738;308298874;305164182;204680928;309675802;202572588;-_-307244797-_-N

Open Discussion / Patina enclosures: Hot or Cold?
« on: May 01, 2020, 05:17:38 PM »
I was looking into patina(ing?) enclosures and found someone doing a demonstration of Hot patina process.

I've patina'd steel before but never aluminum.

Have any of you done it and any pointers/products you used?

Open Discussion / Does resistor wattage effect signal output
« on: April 23, 2020, 11:29:10 AM »
I had to use some 1/2 watt resistors in a pedal build in a few locations. The output of the circuit at max isn't as loud as I imagined it would be for a fuzz and I was curious if the resistors in question could be a contributing factor?

Open Discussion / Favorite Skreddy fuzz circuits?
« on: April 12, 2020, 05:15:35 PM »
Looking to build some and I'm a little overwhelmed as they sound great. Leaning towards a Mayo but curious what y'all have to say.

Open Discussion / Tayda best US supply for parts right now?

I see Small Bear is down do to the shelter in place. Wanted to get some parts for some builds give the shelter in place.

Open Discussion / Table top solder blanket/tarp?
« on: April 01, 2020, 01:35:23 PM »
Given the shelter in place, I canít really access my communal shop space where my work bench is.

My girlfriend is using my music desk for work and I want to build some stuff on the dining room table.

I wanted to get protective material to put over the table/my work area. Any suggestions? Doesnít have to be specifically for soldering but something durable enough. to handle if a drop of solder falls on there not to burn through to the table.


Open Discussion / Photo cell for long delay time
« on: November 09, 2019, 08:47:09 PM »
I've built some Pitch Pirate clones where I used an electric druid TAP LFO in place of the stock PP LFO.

I have no clue what photocell I used on one iteration I no longer have but it seemed to increase the depth function of the PP circuit. Anyone know what value photocell might achieve this?

Open Discussion / Parts bin storage suggestions
« on: September 24, 2019, 02:51:55 PM »
I need some new storage for my parts as they are disorganized and a pain to sort. I already took someone's advise long ago her and have a small tote that is divided in half for resistor and capacitor bags.

I'm looking for a tower like parts bin for various other bits - switches, nuts, washers, knobs, other stuff. Someone that is someone durable and secure as I will be moving it On and Off my work bench at my shop depending on the project I'm working on at that time.

Something like this but open to ideas.

Open Discussion / Pitch Pirate Deluxe slower LFo Speed

I build the Pedal PCB Pitch Witch and wanted to know if there is a way to lower the speed of the LFO. Any suggestions?

Anyone know what sized enclosure this might be?
