General Questions / Re: VFE Springboard resistors

Gotcha, totally overlooked that. Thanks for getting back so quickly.
General Questions / VFE Springboard resistors
August 27, 2023, 04:12:32 PM
I'm finally getting around to building my Springboard. At the top left of the board it's labeled with a 500k trimpot and 2 100k resistors. But the component list and the schematic both call for a 5k trimpot and 2 1k resistors, which I'm planning on going with. Didn't see anything on the Springboard page that says otherwise. I'm assuming it's just a misprint on the board. Anyone help me on this? Thx

Sounds great, Brian. Will keep an eye out. Thx

Any chance there will be more CurrentLover boards available? I miss that boat on that one. Thx

Hey, new builder here. Can you tell me program you use to print the waterslide graphics. Thanks!

Gotcha. Quite the learning curve but part of the fun. TY!
Ok good deal. Then I'll get the LP2950CZ-5.0/NOPB that's at the top of the Mouser page.

These parts that have the same number but different letter endings confuse me. Like LP2950CZ vs. LP2950ACZ or CDT. Are they just different manufacturers of the same part or is there something different about each part?
Would you mind taking a look at this Mouser page and let me know if you see a proper replacement? Sorry to be such a noob but I want to get this right before I start soldering.
Ok got them in the Tubes and More cart. Couple of other things: A couple more parts were missing from the Mouser VFE order folder: LP2950 - I see that LM78L05 is supposed to be a replacement which I have in a Tayda cart. As far as the Zener diode maybe I'm overlooking it in the VFE page but I don't believe I see what value I'm supposed to use. The 1mH - rookie question I know but what is a 1mH and I don't think I have in the Mouser cart. ??? Also, I putting this in a 125b so I'll assume low profile caps are not necessary, correct? And low ESR? Mostly I have 25v-50v values. Does that work.
Thanks for the input. This is a super cool site, especially with all this feedback.
Jimilee strikes again! Small Bear has the double coil but is out of the single coil. Best I can guess I need the single coil??? Will try Jameco and Arrow. I've got a few other questions so if you don't mind I'll message bomb you in a bit. These VFE effects are amazing but running down some of these parts is tough. Thx!
Hey, I'm knew to building with about a dozen basic builds so far. I'm going to try to tackle a couple of VFE builds. I've got several part-related questions but let's start here. I need the Low Signal Relay 5VDC DPDT Latching for the VFESB v3 board. Mouser is out. Tayda has a number of them listed but I honestly have no idea what I'm looking at concerning this part. Can I get some feedback on this issue? Thanks for your time.
Excellent advice. I've got a WIMA cap in my Tayda cart so I'll hold off till it's in.

I took your advice and emailed Brian. He said he has a Yodeler pub that Peter Rutter gave him and may put a new version of it up at some point.

Cool, B taper it is then.

The 1uf cap scenario is on the Tower Overdrive from pedalPCB. If you have a moment can you take a look.
Got a couple more questions for you. I've seen a couple of mentions about using a C1K instead of a B1K due to the different taper with some fuzz boxes. Is that a standard sort of replacement with a fuzz or for very specific fuzz pedals?

I'm building a pedal that requires a 1uf cap. I only have a filter cap. Can that be used in its place and if so does the polarity (orientation on the board) make a difference.

Thanks for your time
