New VFE Pedal day. I bought this Bumblebee last month when I was working on mine because VFE. I really like his stuff and wanted something built by the man. I was so blown away by the quality of the Klein bottle, I want more. I opened it up immediately, I didnít even plug it in first.

Build Reports / VFE Bumblebee
« on: June 29, 2020, 01:46:38 PM »
Hereís the breakdown. I wanted to support Peter Rutter, so I paid the 10.00 to get his files. Even though I could get a Bumblebee board from Brian, I paid 22 for 3, I donít know why. The fix was in the 5457, the trick is the calibration.

Build Reports / A klon it is not!

Iím feeling good about etching. You should see the labels that are under the knob; straight bitchin. The imp with a klon buffer and super mojo diodes. I really need to polish it.

Build Reports / Harbinger 1.5 why did I wait so long to build one?
« on: June 17, 2020, 04:17:36 PM »
I really dig this pedal, I canít believe I waited like 5 years to build it. Check it out if you havenít already. Went together easily over a couple of weeks. Fired right up.

Can you hear the difference between an 18v dc adapter and using the charge pump method? I know what 18v does for overdrives and compressors, what about a univibe?

Build Reports / Etched my first board!
« on: June 08, 2020, 06:53:30 PM »
So what did I make? Why, a phaser of course. I have several of these MXR Phase 90s, now I have one that I etched. Sounds great, and compares very closely to my MXR phasers. The enclosure is all piratey and what not.

Build Reports / Touchstone, or LEGO Clone Trooper

This was a fun quick build. After playing with it for a little bit, I really like, its different from other chorus pedals. The enclosure is in the vein of the Great Grind Customs. Turned out looking like a charcoal drawing.

Build Reports / Donít phase me bro, more adventures with acid
« on: May 25, 2020, 10:13:56 AM »
Ok, so it isnít great but better that my last attempt. I think it baked too long. Etch is really deep. Anyway, the causality phaser has eluded me since it became a thing. I didnít build it, but the boxing was mine.

Iíve reflowed a half dozen times, Iíve checked components about that many times. Voltages on the right top are off and it wonít swell, what am I missing?

I put the dot on the bottom where the doc says to, but it measures positive instead of negative and when I attach and LED to the legs, it doesnít light up.

Build Reports / Adventures in etching the prequel
« on: May 17, 2020, 01:00:50 PM »
This was the second etch that Iíd done,( the last post was the third). If you canít tell by looking, itís the tractor beam phaser.  This etch is from before I found the HP paper, thatís why some pits. I didnít feel it was worth my time to paint it to really make the hideousness pop. Thanks the gordo for spotting my bone hard mistake.
