I don't want to freak anyone out, but today I saw this 60 Minutes piece the long term effects some people are experiencing. And, they are worrying. These are people who had rather mild cases but are now suffering from some kind of long term immunological compromise. I think it's important to keep aware of this. Maybe someone here knows more about it.

If you want to get a pro level tool, I've had three of these:

Pretty expensive but you'll probably never want to use anything else after it.

I'm glad you are pleased! And, doubly glad that international orders are getting received so quickly.

That is killer. Looking forward to building one.

Hi Brian..i still have the H schem sent by jMoreno...

Thank you!

The FX90 is definitely going to be a thing in the near future here. I bought 3 of them about a decade ago. One for $27! I got all of them out today and realized I never pulled the MN3005 out of two of them. But, after I plugged them in again I realized they actually have something pretty cool going on (despite their barely working condition). So, some new analog delay is on the horizon.

Does anyone still have the RevH schem? I have a revF board and I want to compare what the differences are (and also to know if I need to do a full trace on it).

Sure, just wire the cathode side of that LED to the 3pdt switch (upper left lug on the 3pdt). When bypassed the led will turn off.

Sorry to hear that. Keep yourself well and rest up!

We had a bit of a scare with our daughter. She got sick about 10 days ago and there was an exposure at school. Thankfully, she tested negative. The school has gone back to hybrid schedule for now and I think it's the right thing to do. Tenn cases are really getting high. Nationally we are at almost 200k infections a day, I hear.

I'm kinda dreading this but I think I'm going to have to tell my family we shouldn't visit for Xmas.

You can use the voltage chart in the 2020 version as a guide for the 2013 version. The filter section happens between the emitter of of Q1 and the output of IC2B. The envelope section is everything starting at R9.

Right now I'm using the Princeton but most of the time it's my 70s silver Champ. Perfect amp for testing pedals ( for me). The Champ has developed some tube rattle though. Need to fix that.

A bit surprised since I've never had a ticking problem with the PB. The lfo part is located at the top furthest away from the audio section and even has its own ground plane.

Did you do top mounted jack's by any chance?

Super cool! And, thank you for the nice shout out.

I think it's to help keep the current drain from pin6 steady (and linear?) Keeping in mind that the delay pin keeps a steady voltage and operates by varying the current via a pot (under normal use). I'd have to go back to the diysb thread where I first saw it used.

On the OG version of the DM-2, no. I think the later MN3205 versions did have a 20k on the inv in pin.
