Thanks. Itís been a while since I have messed around with muff values.

I like a muff is more overdrivey and defined with the ability to make it fuzzyish.  Iím not into the fizzy, intense wall of sound, or super gainey versions. Any thoughts on values for that?

What I really thought would be cool would be to have an onboard bass preamp and have a switch to quickly jump the volume. I want to figure it out for a pedal first. Thanks all for the ideas.

I may be overthinking this. I have a fatpants that I could use.

To What specs did you build it? My favs are P19 and green Russian. Both are thick sounding

Itís a violet but Iím thinking about building up a new civil war board. Seems very close to the green though.

I would change input & output capacitors if its for a bass 2.2uF/ 4.7uF maybe even 10uF? Those 470pF capacitors on Q1-3 set clipping frequency, so I'd go 560pF or 680pF for more bass crunch. Also I would go higher on those 10k collector resistors 12k-15k-18k? for more saturation, on Q2&3 possibly Q1 also? have you tried led's in place of diodes? it gets thicker more saturated.

Have you tried these value subs before?  All sound interesting. I am going to try ledís for sure. Silicon and germ arenít doing it for me.

I ordered a zirconia. Love my afterlife but want to see if this is a better tool for bass compression.

Has anyone ever added a stompswitch that raises the output or volume level of a pedal? Iíd like to put one in a bass preamp pedal so that I can raise the level for solos, etc. someone must have done this beforeóIím not even sure what terminology to use.

This seems like the right idea, but something that youíd have to put after he effect and not in between a board and volume pot:

Thanks in advance!

I have the Lakeland version of this bass. Really great all around sound. You would think it would be a 1 trick pony.

Thanks! Yeah...just need to replace it.

I have a 4:1 that Iím building up right now but have always heard good things about the zirconia. Has anyone compared the two? Can anyone say what the differences are in terms of how heybwill sound Iím bass? Iím just looking for a little bit of an enhanced transparent pedal that will smooth things out and give a nice roundness.

I hooked he board directly up to my tester last night and it works perfectly. Looks like the switch is fíd. Gonna just replace that.

Thanks all. Didnít realize that aion had one.  Been wanting to order one of his boards anyway.

Is anyone making a DOD 250 clone board these days? Just played an original on bass and it was great. Would love to build one up.

Just listened to my completed mudbunny boards last night and I just donít know. I think I need a creamier, warmer, thicker fuzz.

I have an ultrastoner and a saber tooth Iím going to put in the tester tonight. Just going through all of my old stuff.

I love the electra circuit so maybe Iíll go there.

Open Discussion / build tips? mudbunny/3 knob comp/fatpants in a BB?
« on: October 02, 2017, 06:14:37 PM »
Been working at a guitar shop and have been on more of an instrument/build kick lately. I'm getting the itch, though, and have a half built 3 knob comp (that afterlife with a blend, half built fatpants, and an old mudbunny board that is built up.

It's for bass... any ideas off the bat? THink I can fit it all in a BB box? I'm not thinking of using footswitches for all... maybe just the muff and boost?
