Has anybody messed with one of these? I've double checked the components on the board with the schematic, everything matches. I believe it is acting funny due to the curtain. It does something, but volume just cuts in and out. I know the curtain is a problem on these, but I'm not sure if I'm setting it up correctly or not. Anyone ever set one up?

I found a dead link, and used wayback machine, and found the .pdf. Internet is a wonderful thing.

I just bought a not working unit on Reverb for a good price. I for some reason cannot come across a schematic for the thing. Anybody have one laying around? It is just the Wah, not fuzz, or volume. Board revision RW1-B. I know it has to be out there someplace, my google-fu is just failing. Thanks fellas.

Looks great! Very professional. I like the aluminum knobs you have, but I see how white would compliment the color scheme.

You've probably already noted this, but to my eye the "Fuzz" label is in a smaller font size than "Volume." (just trying to be helpful—it still looks great!)

Dammit. I never noticed that, thanks!

I'll go into inkscape and make sure. I thought I triple checked, but maybe I missed it!

Very clean looking. I would probably lean towards a white LED to fill in the dark area of the moon that the LED occupies. I also vote for the white MXR knobs!

Best of luck getting it sold in stores. Is this circuit based on something, or is it original?

Thanks for the tip. It is definitely based on something, though I have modified it. Its an Octavia. Just with Ge and Si transistors, 2 different diode selections, and an octave switch. I've tweaked some values, too. Nothing major, but I don't know of any others doing transistor switching.

Ah yes, white MXR knobs. Why didn't I think of that. I think those would be perfect.

I had originally chose these chrome knobs when I was going to do an etch, since it was bare metal.

The timberline is kind of a double meaning. I live at 7,000 feet, and from my window I can see the timberline of the San Fransisco peaks. Also, this is an octave fuzz, so it kind of made sense.

Cool! Good luck. I like I red.

Who’s doing your enclosures?

Thanks. I had Pedal Parts Plus do them for me. I'm happy with the quality, and I'll probably use them again. The one thing I'm not happy with is each time you order there is a $25 art fee. They won't just do it once if you plan to reorder, but its each time. So if I am able to sell the 5 I made, I'm going to order in a much larger quantity, or find someone else to do them.

Hi guys, things have been crazy lately, so its been a while since I've posted, or even done anything. But, I made a deal with myself, that I'd have a finished product to try to get into the local music stores by this summer. I've had the board designed and built, etc for a long time. So I freshened up the artwork, added a logo, and had some enclosures professionally done, since I can't seem to get a good etch to save my life. Anyway, here it is. There are a couple of small things to tidy up, like the final color of the LED, I can't decide between white and red. Also the knobs, I think I like these best, but want them to be slightly larger. It is going to the owner of a local store on Monday to test for a week or so, and he's going to let me know whether he'll carry them for me. Here's hoping.

I do love Lawrence's stuff. The thing I miss most about Portland is being able to go out and get everything I needed. Now even pedal parts. I couldn't get a 3 way switch here in Flagstaff if I tried!

Bump for this. Anybody have any recent news? I haven't seen anything come up on their website.

Wow, congrats. That looks fantastic. Great job getting it to that point! I'd like to be there some day.

I love how you did the eyes, really clever. Great job!

did you happen to look at the link that selfdestroyer posted? there is a response that says to put a 22k resistor between the output cap and the volume pot which would decrease the overall volume but most likely eliminate the squeal.

I haven't done that, thanks for the tip, though it seems to defeat the purpose of the schematic. The one from EQD doesn't have that, and it doesn't have the squeal that all of the versions I've tried have had. I just need to buy one and figure it out.

Also along these lines, I'm interested in possibly adding a gain control to this schematic. Has anyone played around with that idea?

I've done that, it works really well, actually. I've only done it by adding it to the front of the circuit. I would eventually like to give a shot to putting it on the IC, and changing the gain that way.

I am so torn on this circuit. I've built a board of my own, and built 2 different vero layouts. I CANNOT for the life of me get rid of the squeal when the volume is all the way up. It is all kinds of fun, but I'd like it a lot more if I could get rid of that dang noise.

I'd be happy to send you one of mine if you want to build on a board instead of vero.
