Build Reports / Re: BBE (big beautiful enclosure) mbp and lectric content
« on: February 17, 2020, 10:10:53 PM »
I populate the board and trim the leads making sure I have all the right parts in the right places before I solder. Then I solder away. once the board is populated I add all the pots, switches and off board wires.

Have often wondered about other peeps' workflow.  Can you explain this a bit more please? Do you bend leads to keep the components in place, then trim, then solder?
That's pretty much it. I just put all the components in then solder.
Here's a good example https://www.madbeanpedals.com/builds/reports/zpsdx/index.html
That's kinda how I do it.

This is how I like to organize my components before I build, makes it easier for me to stay organized and keep track of everything.

thanks, i went thru like 4 versions of logo before I came up with this one. I've only built 2 digital effects and both were reverbs.
nice work! I really dig your logo with the "guardians of the analog".

^^I've watched through "The Expanse" while building too, but I found I had to play each episode twice if I was going to catch all the details (and populate all the right parts-) that show is so dense!

-Oh, and cool builds too dude- that textured paint looks really neat!
My wife hates how I can multi task. I can do like 4 different things at once and keep them strait. probably because I have to do it at work all day. Lot of stuff going on during surgery.

Epic builds, a lot of work in there! Very neat and tidy! How did it all come together, any issues calibrating or so?
How do you like the soundz?
my process is very meticulous. i organize my parts, prep my work surface. I put on whatever show i'm watching at the moment (happens to be the expanse right now). I print my build doc and start populating the board. I populate the board and trim the leads making sure I have all the right parts in the right places before I solder. Then I solder away. once the board is populated I add all the pots, switches and off board wires. Now testing on test rig. It works. Calibrate. Easy with the build docs from Brian and Lectric fx. I drill the enclosures, finish wiring jacks, switches and leds. now paint, and label enclosure. sounds:
117 flanger-I used to have an mxr flanger. this is what I remember it to be. nails that unchained sound of EVH.
Bad Stone-smoother and more reined than the small stone and other 4 stage ota phasers I have but not as lush as my mutron phasor 2  I built. very nice phasing none the less.
electric mistress-I used to have a hartman flanger that I loved but sold stupidly. I'm not a big pink flyod fan(flame suit on) but love me some andy summers. This is the flanger for me. Smooth, lush, less metallic than the mxr. very musical.
the auquaboy dlx. If you dont like a Dm-2 with added delay time and modulation then maybe you dont like guitar pedals. I have a regular aquaboy that I may just set to a nice slapback and leave it there cause this one is nice. I sold my carbon copy the minute this was in the test rig. the EQ of the repeats is perfect. I have a total recall I'm gonna put together in the next couple weeks and I'm gonna a/b with this one. never had a memory man.

It's Rust-Oleum hammered copper, bad lighting in my kitchen made it look orange

General Questions / Re: Naughty Fish Vactrols and 125B Drilling
« on: February 15, 2020, 07:55:32 AM »
So, looks like I moved the knobs down enough so that the DC jack had clearance.  I didn't bend the ground pin after all.  I didn't modify the back plate.  However, the clearance of the Lumberg jacks is right above the IC and the vactrols.  If I did another one of these I'd probably place the Jacks as close as possible to the bottom of the pedal to have more clearance.  If you go to far, you can always remove the lip from the back plate to get it to close.  Here's some pics.
that jack clearance is like a duck's butt...water tight

Build Reports / Re: Mutron Phase II
« on: February 14, 2020, 07:38:25 PM »
Now you're talking my language. The bi-phase is kick ass. I also built the fling pan over at buildyourownclone.com It's a clone of an old Ibanez phaser, the FP77 It's a dual stereo phaser. Then you gotta go to lectric-fx and built the 12 stage phaser. The fun never ends.
the lectric final phase is on my short list of phasers.  So far I've built a phase90, phase45, mutron phasor II, small stone and bad stone. I have an eqd grand orbiter and dod phasor 201 waiting to be built. plus the poly-phase when it drops. You may be the only person that loves phasers more than me.

« on: February 14, 2020, 06:08:47 PM »
came together without a hitch. Sounds nice and thick. My first optical phase, im thinking of putting together a bi-phase now. Has me rethinking my love of mxr and ehx phasers...maybe I'll just make a board with like 8 phasers hahahaha

Oh hell yeah, I already know what it is lol. I have a fuzz factory that would be perfect to do the hand painted thing for, like a custom zvex. And I want my favorite Roger Smith persona...Ricky Spanish

Your artwork is the best I would love to have you do an enclosure for me one day

Love everything about it. The blacked out insides are so cool. And the all red wire is a sick twist. I reminds me of those 80s movies where they have to cut the wire on the bomb and all the wire is the same color so they just pick one at the last second 😂 great job

That looks great.  This is one of my favorite circuits.  It's not really my style, but I aways have fun playing with it.
I love envelope filters. They aren't always in my style of music either but I love to mess around with them. I have like 4 different ones built so far and I have another 4 or so on my list. At the cost to build I look at it like an educational type thing. Even if I don't use it I learned something thru the build.
