You think pedals are bad...stay away from amplifiers! Talk about an addiction!

I've always enjoyed a klon in front of an OCD. I run the Klon clean and use the OCD volume at noon and add gain in from there

General Questions / Re: Sunking 2 - zener diode and 10r resistor question

I don't know if there was ever a definite answer on this. I ended up replacing the 10R with a jumper. It works fine now with or without the zener in the circuit.

Pinout is correct. I'll try swapping the BS170

I did a layout of the RAH circuit and am not getting signal past the gate of Q1. Here is my scheme and layout. Anyone?

Might just be the 3pdt. I had a bad one that gave a pop when engaged. I could feel the difference between the bad one and a good one. Give it a push with your finger, see if you feel two clicks instead of the usual single click. I changed out the switch and the pop was gone.

Open Discussion / To anyone who bought a BMP Board from me
« on: October 09, 2014, 04:37:55 PM »
I have found 4 of 30 boards that have a manufacturer error. If you bought a BMP board from me labeled "Little Miss Muffet" and are only getting bypass signal, lug 2 of the volume/level pot is grounded. You need to disconnect  the middle leg of the pot from the board completely and wire it directly to the "Output" on you 3PDT. Shoot me a PM if this doesn't make sense and I'll walk you through it. Sorry if this affects anyone.

The current version of the Sunking 2 schematic shows that 10R resistor as 1/2W.  Were you using a 1/4W resistor?

Nope 1/2W

Still not sure with the voltages I'm reading why the heck R32 would be burning up like that. And why I haven't seen more people having the same issue. Must be a gremlin in there somewhere. A Klon curse if you will  ;D

Jumpered R32 problem solved. Voltages all look good. Not sure what the issue is/was. Sounds good now  :)

Pulled D3.....R32 still smoking

Just fired up my buffered bypass Sunking II and it also set the 10R ablaze! I'll try the jumper.

We have lift off.  Thank you so much.  Your wisdom is invaluable and I appreciate it so much.  After it's all boxed up I'll post a video.  I believe the culprit was either a cold joint or the tiniest of solder bridges that I found.  I'm so excited.  Y'all helped me finish my first build!

Congrats!  :) :) :)

I feel like I missed something.  Is there an LED and a CLR between your power jack and your 3PDT footswitch?

I think there is we just can't see it in the picture.
