General Questions / Must buy tube amp. Suggestions ?
« on: April 24, 2018, 02:38:34 PM »
Looking for a tube amp that sounds rich/round. 3 sounds I'm looking for are nice tubey clean, edge of breakup and Full lead tone. Obviously pedals can achieve some of the previous but without a great sounding amp I'm struggling.  Just was looking at an Egnator tweaker 88 watt w/ 2/12. Never played one. I'll have about a grand. Been jonesing for a couple of Celestian Gold backs as well.

Any suggestions?

General Questions / JRC 4560 Replacement?
« on: April 02, 2018, 10:02:35 PM »
Working up a distortion pedal that calls for a JRC4560. I have everything but. What would be best?  JRC4558, JRC4580,  TL062, 72, 82, NE5532. Started to look at data sheets but I'm called blearyeyes for a reason.... :P 

I am going to experiment but any technical reasoning to pick one over another would be appreciated.

General Questions / How would you mod pedals for active bass?

I havenít played my bass much lately but trying it out, I never reconciled active preamp to pedals.. How would I approach modding a pedal to work properly?

Open Discussion / NMOD (new mini oscilloscope day)
« on: March 27, 2018, 08:59:41 PM »
I got one of those $20 oscilloscope kits from our friends in China and built it today.
Somebody posted about these a while back.  Can't figure out if it's going to be useful or just fun to play with. ::)

Open Discussion / Adding LED gain reduction meter to optical comp.
« on: March 21, 2018, 11:21:14 AM »
I built 4 Demeter based optical clones off of Osh Park and havenít boxed them all. Ideally the meter would register the gain reduction of the comp. Unfortunately the Chinese are a bit shy on documents and itís been several years since I bought these meter kits but the circuit looks pretty simple. I built one up last night and it functions attached directly to the output of the pedal.

Now the challenge is to pick the control signal off of the Compressor circuit and have it work with the meter. Iíll post links to what I have information wise if anyoneís interested in it.

Oh and cutting a slot for the LEDs in the enclosure..

here's the compressor docs:
