Stellar build my friend!  I’ve been trying to talk myself out of building this one for a couple of weeks now but, y’alls build reports keep drawing me back in.

I love everything about this one!  The circuit, the colors, the wiring… all banging!

This is such an awesome gesture!  I’m honored Chris and I can’t thank you enough.  That Russian Muff is going to get all kinds of use 😁😍.

Nicely done  ;D

Build Reports / GOTA Power Boost (EHX LPB-1)

Special shout out and thanks to @thewintersoldier for hooking me up with this pcb.  Chris has been a huge inspiration to me as a pedal builder and his generosity has helped facilitate some of the best pedal builds I've ever built.  That being said, I present the Guardians of the Analog Power Boost. Essentially, an Electro Harmonix LPB-1 but, designed to fit a 125b enclosure. There’s not much to say other than there's no fancy stuff going on with this circuit. It's just a simple, one transistor, make it more loud pedal. That’s all it does but, it does it so well. Keeping with the Old West flare I've adapted, I used the best power representing thing I could think of for my art. A steam locomotive.

The locomotive on my enclosure is the Virginia and Truckee No. 11. Also know as the Reno. Built in 1872, she spent a big part of her life hauling passengers from Virginia City to Carson City and Reno. In 1937 she was retired from active service to become a movie star. From 1937 to 1969 the Reno was used in several movies and TV commercials. In 1970 she was sold to Old Tucson studios where she continued her life in television and movies. In 1995 she was damaged by a massive fire which ended her running life. She was later cosmetically restored in 1997 and used in the film Wild Wild West. Since then, she’s been on display here at Old Tucson studios. In August of last year, Virginia and Truckee Railroad reacquired the Reno to restore her to operational condition.

So, how about that? Come to look at a build report on a boost pedal and you get some education on a steam locomotive.

As thomasha pointed out, you should be getting roughly the same voltage on both sides of R4.  The value of that resistor should be 1meg.  I would check your solder joints on that resistor if you have the correct value in there.

Preferring this 1 over my Current Lover because that 1 has a heavy need for a boost pedal after it with the vol trimmer maxed out.

I would revisit your current lover.  You shouldn’t be experiencing volume drop with the volume trimmer maxed.  You should be experiencing a boost in volume.

Clean and tight build as always. 

I have never had tayda put the wrong resistors in the bags, never once in like 7 years. In fact the only time I ever got the wrong thing from them was because I clicked on the wrong thing. I also don't think where they ship from has anything to do with not checking values before a part is inserted. Doesn't seem fair to blame a company for an error of the builder.

I've had a few errors here and there from Tayda, usually a missing part...but that's been rare. Nothing like this though. Just in the past two orders I had parts that were wrong. In one order, what should have been MLCC capacitors ended up being a set of flat washers for toggle switches. Label was correct but the bag contained washers instead of caps. And then there's this one...bag says 3k resistors but what's in it is actually 620 ohm resistors.

Only conclusion that I can make is that they changed something about their business. With all the updates to how shipping is handled, something seems a bit askew. Used to be that U.S. orders were shipped out of a warehouse here domestically with some orders being delayed due to parts being shipped from overseas. But many of those orders were processed and shipped really fast. Not the case anymore. Seems virtually everything is now processed and shipped from Thailand...which isn't a problem really if orders are processed accurately.

Don't know what to say really other than that's been my experience lately. Doesn't exactly leave me with a fuzzy feeling. It's one thing if I'm ordering parts for a personal build. I can deal with that. It's another if the parts order is for a batch of pedals I'm building to be sold on Reverb or the like. Not exactly a great scenario. Mistakes happen...I get it. But this just seems to be a bit of a trend.

Have you tried emailing Tayda about your issues?  From my own personal experience, Hugo is a pretty stand up dude and tries to make things right when something like what you’re describing happens.  On a different forum, someone had an issue with an enclosure and Hugo hooked them up with a free replacement.  Just food for thought.

That's a damn good looking build right there.
