Build Reports / Quadrovibe
« on: July 20, 2011, 04:38:02 AM »
Built this up last night. Build went quick and easy. Wiring could be neater, but it's for me, so I didn't worry about it too much.

Anyway... it's a pedal enclosures box, which I'm a big fan of, and the paint/art was a short run done for another forum I'm on. I was lucky to get 3 of these boxes, and this is the first I've built up.

The Ghost's eye flash in time with the modulation.

Still needs a bit of tweaking (posted some questions about it in the "general" section"), but it has the potential of being a great pedal.

General Questions / Quadrovibe questions
« on: July 20, 2011, 03:59:29 AM »
Built one of these up last night. While I do like it, it could still use some tweaking. Some questions I ran into are below. Perhaps Brian, or anyone else can chime in.

In the build document, it mentions socketing R11/12 for tweaking. It also mentions the value of these resistors is 2K2. It's actually R16 and R17 that are the 2K2 resistors. Brians build picture gutshot also shows that 16 and 17 are socketed, and not 11 and 12 as mentioned in the notes. This is an error, and it should be R16/17, correct?

I used a second switch for vibe/trem. When switching from vibe to trem, it gets quiet for a second or two, and then returns to full volume. Anything I can do about this, or should this switch be better left to a toggle, and not for switching on the fly?

Thanks! - greg

General Questions / Brian - question about Loophole BOM
« on: July 19, 2011, 07:43:06 AM »
you have C1-9 as .1uf caps, but the graphic shows several different package sizes, and your pic in the build document seems to have 1uf stacked metal caps in 3 of these positions.

Is the BOM correct?

Build Reports / Dual Sabertooth
« on: July 04, 2011, 08:06:19 PM »
I wanted a new bass fuzz for awhile, so I got some boards from Brian, and this is what I came up with:

Dual Sabertooth! I don't know why two. Just wanted to. It's kinda fun to have 2 settings. I prob. should have went with a bypass footswitch, and one that toggles between the 2 circuits, as I can't even see turning both on at once. It's nuts.

No stand-off holes in his boards, So I just used thick lead wire, and sort of did a pseudo-board mounted pot kinda thing. Between the pots, and the led, the boards aren't moving.

Requests / Sqweeker PCB image?

Brian -

Will the Green Ringer PCB image be available at some point? I like the look of the layout with the "Null" control, and would love to build one. I'd certainly just order one, but I want to incorporate it on a board with a 2nd circuit.

The site is great BTW. Thanks for all the great projects!

Build Reports / Darkside
« on: April 26, 2010, 07:07:42 PM »
Built this up last night. A little "dark" sounding (funny, considering the project name...) unless the tone and sustain are close to cranked. I'm going to drop the high-cut 1n caps to something in the 470-560pf range, and hopefully it'll be perfect.
