Build Reports / Re: Things I built

Love them! Great graphics as well.
Brilliant! I got myself a Skoolie and Current Lover, amongst others, for the back log.

I mean, I've run out of useless values of resistors and capacitors but why should that matter?

I love those sockets, cheap and plentiful.

I use an IC pin straightener and it makes my life a lot easier than squeezing the pins between my fingers. They seem to sit well after that.
Looking great. I would have had a lot of angst tightening the nut on that toggle switch. Don't want to scratch that beauty!

I've said it before. Really raising the bar here and calling us to follow suit.

Love your work.

Even the lurkers can see how great this place is :)

Yay! I'm glad you like it. What diodes did you end up using?

I just cranked it out with Si 1N34A which measured the same Vf as you mentioned. Nothing magic there.
I hadn't built an Electra so it was a quick and dirty build.

Got me smiling enough that I'm going to breadboard it and test out the Ge diodes I have (mainly Russian D9's) to get a bit more magic.

It pairs really well with a Jackson Op Amp boost (what doesn't?).
Great one! I built one tonight and really enjoy it. Thanks for sharing.

The resistor just needs to resist in that range. 3PDT are both on-on.

I would read the warning in the build docs.. if you're not experienced in building then leave this until you are. There is a higher chance of something going wrong, which will need troubleshooting and you may end up with a bunch of money stuck into a build which isn't working. Get a half-dozen overdrives under your belt and then give it a go.

RPD is a pull-down resistor (Resistor Pull Down) to allow the coupling capacitor to  discharge if the input isn't grounded in the off state. Sometimes you get popping when switching, and this can help. If you don't have it then no problem.

Putting it into a rack just means using a toggle switch instead of a foot-switch like you mentioned. You want on-on. In and out are always going through the switch. One throw just connects them together, this is bypass. The other throw routes them through your effect.
