Though I currently have a full beard I started down the DE safety razor path a few years back. I don't think I will ever shave with any other method again. It takes a little more skill but not much and the ride is much more pleasing. Like driving a sports car versus the family sedan. Basically learned how from mantic59 on YouTube.  He was one of the first if not the very first guy to put a "how to shave" video on the internet.

Happy shaving!

Dig the graphics. Is that a plate or a sticker?

General Questions / Re: Acoustic multi effect

Option 3 I think Is the safest bet, but I can't find any mounts to hold the boards in place. I found some on GuitarPCB but they are sold out and he doesn't ship those mounts to the UK, so if anyone has any suggestions on where to get some that would be great. I've spent ages searching, used different search terms, etc, and still coming up blank.

I got some of those from Barry a while back but never ended up using them. I should still have them somewhere. You said your in the UK right? Maybe if I find them we can do a trade or something?

Ironically I have thought about an acoustic multi build myself. If I ever find the time I might make it happen. Although my original plans seem a little overly ambitious looking back. I was hoping for a 4:1 or Afterlife, a Ping, a Bloviator, a Cave Dweller, some type of tuner out and balance line drive. Something like that anyway. Time will tell.

I have a stand alone 4:1 compressor and it woks well. I have used it on bass and guitar. A nice circuit.

Also, I think I'll put a zip archive of all current schematics, including the discontinued and Etchers Paradise. That would be a great reference library for folks to have. There are a couple hundred I think.

This would be awesome to have in one download!

Great idea Brian. I'll order something and throw it in the backlog pile.

Don't know if this helps but I just measured my voltages TP2 seems to change with the position of the drive pot. Assuming that's normal? I also have a Thomson brand tube from Small Bear, 6111 printed on the glass. Everything does seem to be working, CUT & SAT pots included. Both subtle effects but they are there.

VC 18.34
TP1 14.54
TP2 (DRIVE @ 0) 13.08
TP2 (DRIVE @ MAX) 14.85
TP3 11.47
TP4 6.54

Like I said everything seems to be working and it sounds pretty good. Just unsure if plate voltages being high could cause a problem down the road? Like shortened tube life or something?

This release batch is looking awesome! Thanks Brian.

My voltage are off as well. Everything seemed to be working as far as I could tell. Haven't had a chance to box mine up yet. I'll see if I can get the voltages posted when I get a chance.

General Questions / Re: Footswitches: Which one and why?
« on: September 05, 2018, 09:43:11 AM »
I can't find any pics of what the inside of the switches look like, but I can almost guarantee the switches themselves are momentary soft-touch with optical circuitry attached. I dug up the patent application for their "Quartermaster" board ( ) and it seems to use optical elements as muting/routing, pretty much as expected.

If you want something more compact than 1776's there is a switch-bottom sized version over at THCustoms:

If you're looking for pre-assembled switches, that I'm afraid I can't help with. I have no idea where to even start looking for those.

THCustoms has a lot of switching options and what is nice is he sells them in kit form. You get everything you need minus the switch. I've used the Optotronik sever times and they work well. Probably going to give one of his Uber Switches a try at some point; it's a relay/micro controller type.

If your looking for a relay bypass without a microcontroller PARASIT STUDIO sells such a pcb though I have not tried it myself.

NASA soldering standards are on the web, you can look at the inspection standards where I got this picture,,
or the soldering technical standards document Few of us would literally solder everything to these standards.

A lot of good "what to look for" reference photos in that nasa document if you are concerned about your solder joints. A great reference source.

Really cool how you have the decal flowing from the top to the side. Nice job all around.

A 1590BB may be a better option. I've got one that size with 5 knobs, 1 toggle switch and 2 stomp switches. It's fairly workable I find with my non-toddler hands/feet.  ;)

Until I realize (because the controls are working a bit funny) that I've got the labels backwards.  Left is right, and right is wrong...

I was looking at the build doc again last night and noticed that the drill guide has DRIVE & CUT on the left and LVL & SAT on the right like you have it gordo. Easy to get it mix up I guess but looking at the pcb that is definitely backwards.

Looks killer, nice job. Finishing up the last few components on my board tonight or tomorrow.
