General Questions / Re: Anyone have an extra Violenzz board?

I was going to say the same thing, but I'm in Europe and out of town for a week, so it would be a good long while before it got to you.

That said you are welcome to it if you want it.

Was it Midwayfair who did a subjective diode listening test with various diodes in the Klon.  I can't find the page unfortunately.

Yeah, and then people bought out the ones that I said I liked, and claimed that they were the most accurate, even though they demonstrably weren't even remotely accurate to the Fv of a typical germanium diode, in a pedal that most people never use as a distortion. Goddamn I hate every fucking thing about this stupid pedal. There's got to be some way of finding that post on the forum, unless I removed it out of spite.

Knowing the Fv of a diode is completely useless unless you know you're using the the same meter as the person who measured it. Just socket the diodes and use your ears for the ones you like. Screw accuracy.


Of all the things I have read about the Klon this is my favorite!

Open Discussion / Re: Interested in a small 1-2 watt bass amp

When I started I just lent the headstock against a wardrobe door to amplify it.

Look for whatever you can find locally secondhand and sell it again when you leave?

I've thought about it but I think it really comes down to the fact that I enjoy building stuff and I think it would be cool to build him something.

I think I'll check out the TDA based amps and see if that would be a good fit.

Thanks all!!!

Thanks guys, I appreciate the input. I should maybe give a little more background. I'm trying to avoid buying an amp for about a year because where we live now we are on 220V, but next summer we'll be moving back to the states to 110V again. So I feel like buying something that won't work in a year would be a little bit of a waste. So building something small for now seems like the way to go.

I know that a little Ruby or something wouldn't have much volume on a bass, but we aren't looking for loud at the moment, just audible. We have a neighbor 10 feet above his room.

Right now he has been perfectly happy playing unplugged on my semi-hollow bass, but we just got him a solid body so he needs a bit of volume, or maybe a headphone amp. Plus he's really into Bad Religion ATM and I don't know that he minds if it isn't a perfectly clean sound  ;D

I'll figure something out.

Hi guys, been a while!

My 13 year old son just started playing bass and I'm looking for something like a Ruby to build him so he can plug in and not be too loud. Read mixed things about Bass with the Ruby that has the bassman mods.

Anyone have a suggestion for a little project? Something not to hard cause maybe I will get the boy to build it himself.

What is the circuit? You've got me interested  ;D

That is awesome Jimi! Congrats!!

The Bearhug is so great! Might need to build another one. Though, I fear this means 1776 is never coming back, which dashes my dreams of a new version of the multiplex.

Might need to build the trash compactor too.

If youíre on a comp kick and thinking of doing another small board as a giveaway maybe you should do Mictesterís Really Cheap Compressor. Built one on a whim a while back and it is shockingly good on my twelve string electric.

Maybe you could find some answers here as well. Even if not itís an interesting read

I would probably start by taking a transistor fuzz design I liked the sound of and start slicing the two circuits together.  Maybe even start with the Electra distortion with the tone control and output section of the rat.

Great! You guys are awesome!

Think Iíll start posting some teasers on IG toward the end of the week.

I already have two ready to go so I can start with those.

Iím also thinking of making them specific amounts instead of the donation model, maybe just saying make a $150 donation and itís yours or something like that. Just to make it easier for me because I am a little pressed for time. Not sold on that though so I wanted to see what you guys think.

Hey guys, it's been a longtime and I appologize that things dropped off without much explination. I started a new job and life got really busy, and that basically coencided with running out of stuff to post for auction.

I think things were a huge success. I think we ended up between 7500 and $8000 in donations raised between instagram and the Reverb stuff!!
 
I'm still crazy busy at work, but with the war about to hit the one year mark I wanted to put out a feeler and see if there is any interest in making another push. Several of you have contacted me at one point or the other about stuff you were working on, so I thought I'd make a post here to check interest and see if anyone finished up anything or would be interested in getting involved.

As always thoughts, questions, ideas, suggestions are very welcome.
