Build Reports / Any Casket Lottery Fans?
« on: August 02, 2014, 04:23:20 PM »
This pedal was done as a wedding gift for a good friend of mine. It's bean's swamprat. I went with a tshirt transfer for the art (Album cover for the casket lottery-moving mountains) followed by lots of clear coat. The controls labeled oh my god correspond to lyrics in one of the songs. I'm quite pleased with how it turned out. I'm most proud of the guts. Certainly not Juan status, but I feel good about em.

I'm looking for a new project and this one seems cool, I just wanted to see if others had tried this one.

The squier supersonic. Not the new version, the 90s one made in japan. Aghh! Hopefully this auction goes my way. Any other fans out there?

Build Reports / My First Multi effector
« on: June 09, 2014, 06:17:40 PM »
Well, that was fun. This is A tri vibe into a neptune into a rub a dub deluxe. Twas a fun build indeed. astronomy nerds may notice I matched my knobs to the stars in the spectral class graph.  I've got a lot (read: A LOT) of populated PCB's in my pile and decided the best way to start making room for more is to start boxing multi's. This trio seems to work well together, sonically speaking. A lot of my builds end up being astronomy themed, and this one may be my favorite so far. My wiring didn't end up as cute as I had hoped, but I only had one of jacob's boards left and I wanted to save it for my sk2 build. Anyway, thought I'd share.

Tech Help - Projects Page / In regards to powering a multi effect box
« on: June 04, 2014, 09:13:03 PM »
So I am getting ready to box up my first multi-effect, and I had a question about the power supply. I have seen people use a piece of Stripp board to do a ground bus and a 9 V bus, but I also thought it might make sense to run the power from the Jack to the power on the first board and then jumper all of the boards power pads together. I had the same thought about the grounds. Is there any reason why this wouldn't work at least as well as the strip bus ?

Build Reports / For My Marvel Friends
« on: May 13, 2014, 10:46:39 PM »
This is the Double Flush. I'm trying to complete the entire available etchable library here on the site, including all of those listed in the discontinued section. I'm not sure how deep I am into that specific rabbit hole, but here's another. I really like how versatile this thing is. I've been concentrating on my guts lately, and I'm proud of myself on this one (which means something because I usually save praise for others, never wretched old me). Well! Next up is boxing the blue warbler because I just dropped the non tayda LDR Jon sent me and I can't wait for that one!

Tech Help - Projects Page / Sk2 1/2 watt 10r?
« on: May 08, 2014, 09:20:01 PM »
Sorry if this is a double post, I'm not finding my other one. Is 1/2 watt necessary for r32 or will 1/4 watt work?

General Questions / 1/2 Watt resistor in the sk2?

Is 1/2 watt essential here or is this just per original spec?

Build Reports / DL-44 (Stage fright for my star wars friends)
« on: April 13, 2014, 10:51:59 AM »
This is beans stage fright, no mods or extras. I tried to make the case look like it had blaster burns; it didn't entirely work out but I'm happy with the result.

Open Discussion / Anyone heard the new owls album yet?
« on: April 08, 2014, 11:16:11 PM »
Holy crap. I don't know if there are any other Cap'n Jazz or Joan of Arc fans out there, but if you guys haven't heard of owls, check em out. Victor Villareal can play a damn guitar.

Hey guys, I've been getting pretty deep into building in the last year, and I find myself wanting to brush up on my technical knowledge. Sure I can etch build, and troubleshoot, but I'd come up with close to nothing if someone asked me to explain how a circuit like the stage fright works. Can any of you guys point me to any good resources you've found relating to audio electronic circuits/ application in pedals? THX.

Build Reports / Abductor (Urchin w/ Modulation)
« on: March 31, 2014, 06:50:13 AM »
This weekend, I told myself I had to box something in the pile up (20+ builds unboxed). I had a sea urchin laying around and a small LFO/LDR daughterboard in the stash, so I figured I should combine em. Anyway, here's the final result. I also learned why you don't see white pedals too often.

Tech Help - Projects Page / Powdered FeCl
« on: March 17, 2014, 09:45:15 PM »
Hey guys, im up to the point where I'm
Etching quite a bit and I've normally been using the stuff from the shack. I was considering buying powdered FeCl through eBay to dilute and was wondering if anyone goes this route and could point me towards a good source? Thanks!

Tech Help - Projects Page / Byrdie issue
« on: March 04, 2014, 09:40:35 PM »
Got the comp itch today so I saw beans byrdie board and decided to build it. She fired up fine and the effect is working, however when letting notes ring I have one of two problems depending on the trim pot position. At half the sweep, after 3 or 4 seconds I get a strange tremolo like pulse, at the other end the notes fizzle out quickly.  The only substitution was a 2k trimmer instead of a 1k. Any thoughts of the culprit? I have yet to swap ics; I'm using a mojo metal can 3080, and I'll have to make a daughter board if I want to test a 13700 in there. Thanks in advance! I haven't troubleshot a comp before so I'm hoping to  grab some knowledge on the way
