General Questions / Moodring regulator
« on: September 16, 2014, 01:26:32 PM »
Hi all.

I am about to make a Tayda order for the Moodring parts + some bibs and bobs.

The problem is they don' t have the LM78L05. Or that is they do, itīs just an smd ic. Guess that wont work.

Are there any other that will get the train in the station... As you say   ;)

Any help appreciated.

There are this little bugga:

This is the same as in the tenebrion. Is this it?

Tech Help - Projects Page / Chimaera not working.
« on: August 24, 2014, 03:01:25 AM »
I all. I posted this at the GC forum, but no response, so now I give the beaners a go :)

I jumped on the Chimaera when i heard that it was going to be discontinued, dispite of having build to Kingslayer and the Sunking II. I wanted to try out the findings over at BYOC. Cant get enough of dirt pedals :D

There has been a couple of things with this build:
First the gain pot didn' t work properly. There were clean signal but when I turn up the gain it cuts the signal. I have checked the pot and swapped C7 and C8. Both ways actually. I checked the diodes and couldn' t get a reading with my DMM(When someone writes DMM I always read Deluxe Memory Man :lol: ). So I unsoldered the diodes and put sockets instead. That did not solve the problem, the diodes did work I have no idea why I couldn' t get a reading.

Now theres no sound, only motor boating/oscillation. I reflowed over some of the solder joints and noticed there seems to be a tracelift around the diodes. I don' t feel like I have used eccesive heat in removing the diodes, But apparantly enough.

Are there any way I can make the connection flow again after the lifted trace?

The board looks pretty scuffed up as I have been working on it a lot, quite abit more than usual, but I have attached some pics.

Thanks in advance :)

General Questions / Fatpants higher frequencies?
« on: June 03, 2014, 03:15:06 PM »
Hi all.

I have build the previous fatpants (just called fatpants:-)) and the fatpants 2013.

When i a/b them I notice that on the older one there are more high end harmonic content compared to the new one. And i really liked that on the older version. Its not like the 2013 one are dull and muffled, its just messing that 10% the first one have.

So my question is, which values are to be tweaked to regain some of the higher frequencies on the newer version?

Thanks in advance.

General Questions / 2pdt switch in fatpants 2013.
« on: May 30, 2014, 02:51:13 PM »
Hi all.

I just bought some new boards including the fatpants 2013.

Since Im only using 6 of the 9 pinouts on the 3pdt switch, would It be ok to use a 2pdt istead?

Thanks in advance.

General Questions / First vero. Need help.
« on: January 17, 2014, 09:34:12 AM »
I wanted to start build my first vero. I have only been building madbean, gcfx and byoc. So I set my eyes on this little sucker:

I searched for some off board wiring diagrams and found this:

From what i can see from the vero layout there are no output. Is this correct or a mistake? I have a strong suspicion that it here the error is.
I have connected the output from the off board diagram to the 0v ??? out. Whatīs the deal with a 0V. Is it just a wire thats suppose to dangle at send no volts? Or is it a ground?

Any help would be appreciated.

I tried to throw the images in the post, but could not make it work. Sorry, they are attached.

Requests / Spring reverb?
« on: April 16, 2013, 11:51:27 PM »
Hi all (madbean in peticular).

Why isn't there anyone who is offering what the ggg stage center was. For those who don't it was a spring reverb with a real tank connected to the board, analog is you will. The best part is that the tank can be had for 18 $. But it's discontinued now, sadly.

But from what I can see there's not the biggest fuzz about producing one.

Madbean if you were to make one of these, you would be the only one and thereby having a complete market share(trying to lure you here;-))

Here's a link:

Build Reports / First build report. The fatpants.
« on: January 16, 2013, 03:47:41 PM »
Hey guys, first build report here.

My first madbean project was the fatpants and its really something.
I have used a lot of money on a really, really nice amp and a good guitar. They do sound good together, but the fatpants make them sound even better and does something good for my od's.
I never thought I would have an always on effect, but I never turn off the fatpants.

General Questions / 1n34a transistor from mammoth
« on: December 19, 2012, 03:37:42 PM »
Hi all.
When I did my last mammoth order I bought me some 1n34a diodes.
Problem is I did not get any diodes as you normally see them. I got some transistors labeled .2N 4403 120.
I know there are some tricks to be done with trannies so they can be used as a diode. But have you experienced something like this before when ordering from mammoth?
I tried to google the .2N 4403 120 transistors and did not really find anything that links to the use of them as a diode. Do you know any tricks regarding these?
Could be a wrongie from mammoth I suppose.

General Questions / Kingslayer opamp question.
« on: November 22, 2012, 01:35:25 PM »
Hi guys.

Im about to make an order from mammoth to get the parts for the kingslayer.

My question is if I can use the TL074CN instead of the TL074? They dont have any of the other suggested op amps and this was as colse i could get from mammoth. It seems as if the TL074CN is an JFET op amp.

Hereīs a link to the TL074CN:

Thanks for your help.

General Questions / Cherry bomb 200pf
« on: November 04, 2012, 03:38:57 PM »
Hi there.
I been lurking at the cherry bomb and think I'm gonna build one.

But I can't seem to find the 200pf (c4) anywhere.
Could I for a solution teepee two 100pf's together? Either silver micas or ceramics, where's the difference, if any, between the two?


Hi. I have build the game of thrones by culture jam. I have a problem with it.
When I put a jack fully in the input there's no sound, not even in bypass. BUT when I only put partially in there's sound both effected and bypass.
Really weird, hope you guys can help out.
