General Questions / Low profile jacks
« on: May 08, 2015, 12:08:28 PM »
Hi all. I was just looking at the baby board guide that Brian put out. In it he uses low profile 1/4" jacks that came from Smallbear. I just checked and it doesn't seem like they still carry them. Do any of you have a source for these?

General Questions / MLCC caps from China
« on: May 06, 2015, 04:26:15 PM »
Was browsing Ebay and saw all these great prices on MLCC caps. They are the yellow ones that look like Tayda's. Anybody have any experience with these?

Build Reports / Smoothie 1590a
« on: May 05, 2015, 05:29:18 PM »
Stock Smoothie decal and Envirotex. I'm starting to get used to the ridiculous size of these things. Like others have said, they are a bit addictive. Oh yeah...Great sounding pedal.

Build Reports / Suhr Riot 1590a
« on: April 28, 2015, 12:00:43 AM »
Here's my second 1590a. This is a PIF I got from Billy (wgc) in December that I'm finally getting around to boxing up.
I'm pleased with how this came out. I took a photo I found from riots in England and just started playing with it in Photoshop.
I'm still trying to figure out if I actually like building these little guys. I'm really surprised when they actually work after cramming everything in there. So far both have fired right up.

Hi all. The bass player in the group would like a pre-amp. Any suggestions which one to build?


Tech Help - Projects Page / Resistor Values for LED's
« on: April 24, 2015, 12:12:03 AM »
Hi all. Just a quick question. What resistor values do you use for Led's.
1. For diffused?
2. For waterclear?

Thank you

Build Reports / First 1590a

Stock Bloviator. Vinyl Decal and Envirotex. All I have to say is "Man that's small to work on." Fortunately it fired right up.

Tech Help - Projects Page / For all you Klone experts
« on: April 13, 2015, 01:26:48 AM »
I've been wondering for quite awhile about the Klone dual gain/clean pot. Is there a reason why nobody uses two separate pots for gain and clean rather the dual pot?

Tech Help - Projects Page / Difference in pot tapers
« on: April 12, 2015, 04:56:28 PM »
Hi all. Building a tusk which calls for a dual 100k linear gain pot, so I order dual 100k audio pots. What difference will there be if I use this?

Open Discussion / Another Question about Decals
« on: April 10, 2015, 02:33:57 AM »
This one is for you who use decals and envirotex. Do you usually drill the box before you put the decal on or after you've put the decal on and the Envirotex?

Open Discussion / Self adhesive decals
« on: April 07, 2015, 11:59:29 AM »
Hi all. I know some have gone from waterslide to a paper that has some kind of adhesive on it. Where are you getting this from? Links?


Open Discussion / 2PDT stomp switch
« on: April 01, 2015, 04:43:27 PM »
With all this talk about opto switching I'm going to have to purchase some 2PDT stomp switches. Does anybody have any suggestions for good deals on these?

Open Discussion / Store bought Multi-effects
« on: February 22, 2015, 11:02:41 AM »
I know this is probably close to blasphemy but does anybody have any experience with a multi-effect? Boss GT-100, Line 6 HD-500, I think Zoom has the GT-5 etc.

The context is playing in a worship band. I know the individual boxes are better but I'm thinking of ease of setup. Being able to store individual settings for songs. Maybe running straight into the board. I think the better ones have an external loop I could put pedals in.

What do you guys think?

Open Discussion / Great resistor code calculator
« on: January 27, 2015, 03:21:40 AM »
If you have an iPad this is a great tool. Best layout I've seen for putting in the resistor color code.

Open Discussion / What would you charge for these pedals
« on: January 23, 2015, 11:47:03 AM »
Hey all. I've never built a pedal for anybody else so this is new for me. I have somebody who is interested in a Cornish SS2 and G2 combo and a Klon, compressor combo.
The prices for these used are insane.

Any suggestions on what you would charge for each? This would include the time of graphics and envirotex etc.

Thanks in advance.
