Build Reports / EHX Freedom Preamp
« on: January 09, 2022, 04:45:40 PM »
Here is a great project from effectslayouts that was recently released. Based on the old freedom amplifier's preamp section. Could use it to go direct to a daw or as a different flavor of overdrive. Josh Scott did a video on the amp and gives a great idea of the tone. Straight forward build with no issues. Artwork inspired by @jjjimi84.

I want that SG!!!

Business as usual for me.  I've been binge building since the beginning of the pandemic and I'm up to my eyeballs in pedals.  I've been selling a bunch of stuff thru my pal's music store but sporadic and not coming even close to breaking even.  Still, building is therapy for me and every now and then (Fuzzy Britches and Archibald) something comes down the pike that is absolutely killer and stays on my board.
I know you were talking before about an SG special you liked at Chicago music exchange. Well if you like that red SG then this picture should really get your blood boiling lol after years of Les Pauls I realized that I'm really an SG guy. No turning back for me.

It's been like that for a while Jimi. Myself I'm just getting back into building after a hiatus during the holidays. I'm getting ready to take on some builds in the coming weeks. But first I had to clean my bench. After cleaning and reorganizing I'm ready to tackle Brian's new projects. I also got a new guitar so I'm trying to get in time to play, on top of work, family and general adulting

Damn Stephan, I am gonna hang up my iron. These are amazing, I'm not worthy!
Oh common' Chris, you've got all the superheros and special powers and all! You know it...!
You are on a whole different level, making boards, killer graphics, relay bypass. You make better stuff than most big pedal companies!

Thanks everyone. It's an awesome pedal. I took someone's suggestion to add some venting holes to prevent overheating especially the electrolytic caps. I don't know how much heat it would produce inside the enclosure and how much it will help but I did it anyways.

Here's a quick and dirty clip. Tele into a clean deluxe reverb. Backed off the bias a little bit to simulate a little bit of rectifier sag. Breif moment of picking dynamics and volume knob roll off.

First build report of the year. First tube build. Thanks to Brian for answering my questions when I had a mishap. Build was pretty straightforward but I had a cap blow on this after a few minutes of power while testing. It took the inductor with it in a puff of smoke. Brain said I could jumper but voltages we're off on the tube in spots. After narrowing it down to V++ I replaced another cap that went with the first one and all was good.
   So how does it sound? Very convincing tube like drive, dynamic tube like response hahaha. I will make a short demo clip later today, my daughter's friend spent the night last night and are hanging in my man cave/music room. Sounds pretty good with a negligible difference between 9v and 12v. Power full EQ or basic EQ. The buffer makes a huge difference, and the bias is fun the mess with. I like the range on the gain knob.
   This is a uv print and went with John Favreau's Happy Hogan. Such a great character and fits the Archibald/Jeeves pedigree great. Standard 12ax7 I had laying around worked great.  Here's to another year of awesome MBP projects!

I love this pedal.  Definitely more "ooomph" at 12v but not a deal breaker.  I am getting some significant gating on the attack with the buffer in circuit.  I'm not sure if it's a pedal issue or a build issue but haven't troubleshot beyond verifying correct parts in the buffer circuit.  I'll try swapping tubes at some point but for now I'm having a blast playing it and looking forward to running it in my live rig tomorrow.

Nothing special here except I actually threw down the gauntlet and painted the inside of the enclosure.




Looks great Gordo, no surprise you beat me to the punch on this one. I'm posting mine today too 😂
I also had the issue with the buffer at 12 volts but ended up changing the jfet. Haven't had anymore issues since. But I also like the slightly less headroom and compression that 9 volts gives, as subtle as it is

Curious what did you use for the LDR cover?
I used a clear plastic pot cover and spray painted it black.

Brian, any way you could do a limited run of lowrider pcbs lime you did with the stage fright phaser? Would be awesome! Please and thank you!

Build Reports / Lectric-fx Spaceharp V3
« on: December 04, 2021, 03:38:37 PM »
This is one of two builds that was done simultaneously. This one is going to @jjjimi84 cause he's a righteous dude and he asked if I would build him one and I was happy to. This was built on the newly released lectric-fx spaceharps V3 board. This has a reworked LFO and has a nice thick chewy sound. Love the layout lectric-fx did on this. The enclosure is a tayda matte black with uv print. Went with the infinity gauntlet with stones and the image turned out great. All white wiring on this one and all going forward as I got the 1000ft roll from stompboxparts. You should build this, it's a  great phaser and an easy build.
