I retested this today and all seems ok. Not convinced that something still is not amis but when I tested it last night(late, and couldn't turn up the amp since the kidos were sleeping) I thought I was getting the low output issue on the one setting on the shape switch. Oh well, it's going off to its new owner. He will have to let me know if he has issues with it. I will post the build report tomorrow.

Sorry I couldn't give you guys anymore to go on.

Tech Help - Projects Page / LaVache Problem
« on: January 10, 2015, 12:05:18 AM »
Hey guys. Just built a LaVache and I tested it prior to boxing and all seemed to be fine. Then I boxed it up and the trouble I am having is this. In two of the three positions(middle and up) on the shape switch everything is ok but when switching to the third position(down on my build) I loose about 1/3 volume and 1/3 the fidelity or fullness of sound. It does not sound as though there is anything shorting, no farting out. I swapped transistors and the same thing is happening. I have tried both the 2n5088 and 2N3565.

My urgent plea is this. I know the rules for getting help but I am supposed to give this thing away as a present to my brother in law tomorrow! I checked all part values when populating the board and have double/triple checked my wiring. On/off and boost works fine. Just that third position on the switch. Could I have a solder bridge on two of the diodes? I don't have means to update any pics or readings now. So, if anyone has any suggestions that I could easily try I would appreciate it. I will have one more opportunity in the morning to trouble shoot it.

If I can get it going I will post proper pics and tranny readings next week.

Thanks for any suggestions.

Sorry to hear about the divorce. I have an Aristocrat waiting to be built. After having kids I just don't have a ton of free time.

What are the diodes with the yellow stripes?

Just got a shipping notice from them. I'm glad things are on their only problem is that I ordered hoping things would be here this week because I go on paternity leave next week and was hoping to get some things done(besides the baby!). Hopefully the order will show up before I have to go back to work. Ugh!

Yeah, might be my last order as well. I had to use up a credit on my account which is why I ordered in the first place. I'm not bent out of shape over it but there still has been no response to my email on Tuesday, no real  explanation for that in this day and age of customer service. Thanks for the input guys.

Just curious if anyone has the inside scoop on them. I placed an order on 8/30 first thing in the morning and have not received a ship notification. I followed up with an email on 9/3 and there has been no response. Not panicing but this hasn't been my experience with them in the past so I thought I would check the community here to see if anyone knows anything.

I do realize there was a holiday during this time period.

If this is SMD from China, expect a rip off version shortly...for cheap. If he thought the DIY community did him wrong before...the violation that is about to take place will make what happened previously pale in comparison.

Anybody ever try MN3005's from China, like in this link? Doing a search at this site returns lots of sellers. Some even accept paypal. I'm a noob so someone with more experience with these would have to do the looking into but if they were the real deal maybe a group purchase would be possible.

Cool, thanks. I did search Smallbear but couldn't find it before...just did it again and it popped up! Can't wait to get this together.

Hey guys,

I am gathering parts for a LaVache build and having trouble locating the transistor 2N3565 for this project. I see that Tayda has this PN3565, is this the same part? If not, where is everyone getting the 2N3565? I did buy the stock tranny but want to try the suggested mod as well since so many like it instead.
