Build Reports / Re: What's the Story? (JHS Morning Glory Clone)

I've used one with bass on and off, it's got a great sound but it is a little bit low gain unless you grain the gain. The idea is to overdrive the front end of your amp, they work together. That being said, check put the game of tone over at grind customs or he just posted a massive sale thread over at byoc. Put 2 in one enclosure and you've got the clipping options for low or high gain.

Just tried it pushing the tubes on my amp, now with my Les Paul (yesterday's test was with my Strat), and sounds pretty good, but i'm still finding it a little on the thin side. I have a spare board, think I'll make it a single sided KoT! Thanks for the tip.

I see you're only using a single clipping option, where the board actually accommodates two. You may want to think about throwing a set of 3mm green LEDS on the other side for grittier and meaner. At least give yourself a couple options.   Maybe socket and try some diodes with lower Fv.

But in my experience, led clipping is less gainier than si diodes, and have more volume. But I'll try it, thanks!

I like it, sounds pretty nice and complex, but its too low gain and bright for the style of music I play! I like fatter and meaner overdrives! Tomorrow I'll try it boosting my amp and report back here!

Hi there! I've just finished this Morning Glory clone using one of those fabulous Aion Electronics boards. Not my cup of tea, but sounds really nice!

Very nice build! A few weeks ago I received some Aion Boards (Helios and Cerulean), and they're just amazing! I think is time to get some klon boards from him also, hehe

Thanks guys!

Is the name Echolalia a reference to Glossolalia? Love the distressed look too.

I didn't knew 'bout Glossolalia - I mean, I didn't knew the disturb had that name! Guess I have to make one named Glossolalia now haha!

Good luck man, I just gave mine up

Beautiful, inside and out! That lettering is made with what? Stamps? I love it!

I use the Foxx Roxx Wah Retrofit buffer in some of my wah buildings and it does the job pretty well, and is a pretty easy circuit to build

Build Reports / Echolalia - Deep Blue Delay clone
« on: November 28, 2013, 02:56:42 PM »
Well, while I'm struggling with my ZPSDDX I just finished another Deep Blue Delay clone. Here it is! (I'm trying Grind Customs method and I'm quite enjoying it!)

Tonight I had the funniest dream! Madbean himself chimed it here and told me to look at the value of resistor x, and in the dream I took that resistor out and swaped for another, and it just happened to be an out of spec component, turned the pedal on and it was working! Dang, it was just a dream...

I woke up and started messing with the pedal. Started looking the things pietro_moog pointed out (thank you very much, by the way!). Swaped some capacitors I accidentally damaged with my soldering iron, checked all capacitor values, removed the transistors and installed new ones, now socketed, measured R48 with the multimeter, changed all the ic's - including new tested and working pt2399. Removed everything that didn't belong to the delay path, but once again, no dice. I plugged in my Deep Blue Delay just to be sure I'm not crazy and somehow forgot how a delay sounds, but yeah, it really doesn't work as it should. I know Brian is a pretty busy guy, but would be kinda nice of him to point were I should be looking at with more attention. I buy boards from madbean since the first klon board, there wasn't even a website at that point

Well, I'll take some rest before I try to mess again with this little mofo. Thanks for the tips! I do know how to read an schematic, I just don't know much about what does what in a delay pedal, guess is time to learn something new. I've already checked the capacitor and resistor values more than once, but I can do it again. I have tryied all my PT2399's in my Deep Blue Delay clone, and they all work (and I have a bunch, hehe). Think I'll have to try the transistors, will remove them all and put sockets in there. And I removed R45, but have to check R48. And yes, I have a multimeter, hehehe. I'm not exactly new in the pedal making business, and that's why I'm so frustrated hahaha.

and thanks very much for the tips, I'll give it a go and report back

It's off in the video. When it's on, it just oscilates like crazy and faster

Well, here it is

In the video I tweak both Delay and Feedback knobs. It kinda sucks, because I already drilled and finished an enclosure, heh.

Well, fuck it. I'll "just" give up. I tried everything, new diodes, checked every damn resistor value, checked for unwanted solder bridges, changed the pot taper, and it still acting like a silly reverb. I'll record a video just for the hell of it, but I give up
