Open Discussion / Re: More love for Smallbear
« on: December 14, 2019, 03:25:50 PM »
I love small bear.  Many examples of great service over the years.  It has  grown,but I think he still takes care of the small guys building single pedals as a hobby.  I wish they shipped faster sometimes, but they always get me what I need even when I can't find it on their website.

Scruffie I recall reading the cool audio chips being noisy compared to Panasonic chips.  Not tryin g to propogate​ any fallacies.  The reprinting drives me crazy. 

I guess I'll find out, hopefully this weekend.  I'll let you guys know.

Small bear is reliable.  Sometimes their shipping is slow, but I have never had a problem with them.

Do you guys know of any good sources for these chips, they seem out of stock everywhere.

Yeah, I've had good luck with this guy on mn3005 and mn3008 in the past so I figured I would take another shot.  I think those are way more rare.  I guess I'll find out the hard way.

I'm building a blueshift chorus(roland dimensiion D clone) and I got some hard to find chips on ebay.  I bought them from polida, who has come through for me in the past.  lots of mn3008 and mn3005s from him.  only ever got one dud.

These look a little suspect to me, but I don't know these chips as well.  My first concern is the silkscreen it the same on every chip.  Pretty amazing for reclaimed chips.  I may have to find out the hard way, by testing, but if anyone has any feedback.  I'm interested to hear... NE570N, MN3102, and MN3207 chips are the ones that worry me.  pics attached

Edited, does this link work?

General Questions / Overdrive for Bass?
« on: April 01, 2017, 06:54:14 AM »
It all started when I made him an arcadiator.  My bud, who is a real musician, gigs every week, you know, now has the pedal bug.  The arcadiator is a bit over the top for him though, even with the blend mod... I think he may use it to play a Jamariquai song, but thats it.

Anyone know a good bass overdrive?  He does not want a fuzz, or a distortion, he wants OD.  I loaned him a timmy, but he said it was too mild... I heard the klone does not boost the bass well.  I'm kind of in the dark when it comes to bass pedals, cause I don't play bass.  Seems like most pedals need to be modded to work well with bass, but I'm kind if in the dark here and I want to make him something that earns a permanent spot on his board.

Recommendations?

Cool encounter.  Anyone remember him in the HBO series Oz?  He was so convincing in that role, I couldn't buy him as a nice guy when I saw him in other roles... eventually I realized that was a character.

I would do a few at that price too.  Oddly enough I was thinking blue on black as well... I like how your dads fades to white too.  Black with red to yellow would be sweet too.

Did the "mid-month" signup sheet ever happen?  Not whining here, just want to be sure I did not miss it.... Been traveling for the last two weeks.
