Open Discussion / Re: Pedals For Ukraine Info and Updates

This project and its growth has been incredible. The support from within the community—builds, encouragement, and the continued momentum—and the response from folks buying the pedals has been really impressive. Thank you to everyone!

A huge thank you to Matthew for putting in so much work to organize, promote, and help us come together.

By the way, I have some more stickers available to anyone that would like to send some out with won auctions. Also, did everyone that already requested them receive them by now?

Does that mean you’re going to start a PCB of the month club where we get new boards shipped out regularly? Can’t wait for the Tourbus.

Great work here! I’ll have to think on it a bit if there’s any other behavior that I could see a use for. Definitely keeping an eye out for developments.

That painting looks incredible, really great build.
Quite a compliment coming from you! You hand paint enclosures sometimes, right?

This is so cool, I like that is kind of like a homage but just a million times better.

HAHAHA, that really nails it

Absolutely! Perfectly put!

Awesome build!  I also have some pictures of manhole covers from traveling ;D  You run across some cool ones in other countries.  The ones in my neighborhood all just say sewer..pretty boring  ::)
Wait you have manhole covers in your neighborhood? 🤣
You don't cover man holes in your neighborhood?

That looks fantastic, David! Great work all around. Thank you again for your generosity in providing boards for the campaign.

Thanks everyone! This should be going live soon. Hopefully buyers out there like it too!

Looks great! Dig the inspiration behind it too. You could try doubling the diodes so there is a parallel set of two series diodes each way. That’d get you up to Si Vf territory while retaining the Ge texture.

Haha yep. Easy enough fix, but if it sounds good, no need!

That looks killer! Great job with the art and integrating the clipping mods. Glad you found a good combo. Looking forward to hearing it!

EDIT: are all three BAT46 diodes parallel?

This is built to '79 grey box 250 specs on an Effects Layouts' DRIVESTORTION board storyboardist generously provided. The only deviation from the stock circuit is that the clipping diodes are 2x1 asymmetrical 1n4148. With the 250 and the Rat, I prefer asymmetrical clipping since it adds a bit more harmonic texture to simple circuits without a lot of tone shaping. You either know what this one sounds like or have a 250/Dist+ build in your future.

The artwork was painted by my partner and takes inspiration from Maria Prymachenko's “A Dove has Spread Her Wings and Asks for Peace”, which has become a global symbol of peace during the conflict.

Check it.

General Questions / Re: DOD 250+ Clipping Diodes
« on: April 30, 2022, 12:58:12 PM »
With such a simple circuit, the diodes do a lot of the lifting regarding the texture of the distortion. It’s also dead simple to breadboard. Try out arrangements you like and others you have been interested about. What do you typically like with hard clipping distortion?Try doubling up Ge diodes to avoid as much volume loss and compression. I personally really like 2x1 Si diodes. It’s rather ordinary, but it’s my go-to for the Rat as well. You could also try some of the techniques discussed by Jack Orman (e.g., series resistors, frequency-dependent clipping, etc.).

General Questions / Re: Sludgehammer hookup to test rig
« on: April 30, 2022, 12:25:53 PM »
Input to Sludgehammer input; output from Sludgehammer output. You'll have to short BYP1 pads 2 and 3 since it passes through the non-inverting amplifier before the output. Short BYP1 pads 1 and 2 to test the effect in bypass.
