Are all the projects that are on sale being discontinued, or just some?

Build Reports / Rollerboost
« on: May 28, 2011, 11:36:30 PM »

This is not a madbean build.  It's actually a vero layout for a Rangemaster style treble boost similar to the Brian May Treble Booster.  It uses a BC182L transistor.  Sounds pretty good.  I built it for a friend who loves Rollerball and Brian May.

Build Reports / Regulus VIII Fuzz Box (Deadpool)
« on: May 28, 2011, 11:26:06 PM »

Here is my nearly completed deadpool build.  I was really excited when i saw this project.  i love the crazy sounds that os mutantes got out of their equipment and i read the article by claudio baptista on how to build it, but could not really understand what the hell he was talking about.  I have not finished soldering the wires or hooking up the led,  and i am waiting on the knobs i want to use from mouser, but here it is.  it is a really cool and unique sounding fuzz.  i really like it.  it can sound really fat and overdriven on some settings and really high treble fuzzrite-ish on others.  you can dial in all kinds of cool tones with it.  i am still experimenting with the transistors to see what i like the best in it.  i will report back with my findings.

This is a fuzzrite i built with a vero layout.  it is the first pedal i have done with a waterslide decal.  i really like them. i used testors clear.  i found it really easy to get good results.  i expected to screw it up several times before i got it right, but it went on well first try.  i put on about 5 coats of krylon clear afterwards.

Open Discussion / Multilayer ceramics
« on: March 17, 2011, 02:34:39 PM »
I recently got a few low capacitance multilayer ceramics with my last order from futurlec.  I figured I would try them out.  Does anyone have any experience with them?  Are they any different than standard ceramics?

Build Reports / deadringer

deadringer build.  great sounding overdrive.  this is one of the first overdrives ive done.  i love it.  i may have to trade in my fuzz addiction for an overdrive addiction.   I just hope I don't O.D. on OD.  :D

Requests / MkI tonebender
« on: March 07, 2011, 07:52:41 PM »
The pastyface is awesome, but I would love to see a project for the mkI tone bender.  I know it is a bitch to bias, but I have to have one.  Now that i think of it, I would like to see a vox tonebender project as well.  Since you have so much free time, just go ahead and do all the tonebender variations  :).   I'll build them all in one giant six foot long enclosure.

Tech Help - Projects Page / Zygote
« on: March 06, 2011, 11:24:13 PM »
I am building a zygote using the road rage to flip voltage.  I tested the circuit without the road rage ( positive ground), and it worked perfectly, but once I connect it to the road rage, it doesn't work at all.  The led doesn't even come on.  There's got to be something I'm missing.  I've triple checked my wiring and my road rage components and have found no errors.  How do I check the road rage to see if it's flipping the voltage properly?

General Questions / Deadpool build
« on: March 06, 2011, 04:04:42 PM »
I am getting ready to build the deadpool and for c6, it calls for a 2.2u film cap.  I don't have one, but I do have the following:  a tantalum cap, a xicon 10% non-polarized electrolytic, and a topmay 1u box film cap (suggested as a substitution).  What would be the best component to use in this build?

Does anyone know what gains I should use for the 2n5088 transistors in the deadringer?

Requests / Death By Audio Robot

I have seen some progress made on tracing this pedal on fsb, but have not seen a verified version yet.  This is a cool 8 bit fuzz.  A few people have said it is similar to the dh pitch shifter project on general guitar gadgets. 

Tech Help - Projects Page / grapevine build problem
« on: October 22, 2010, 11:13:31 PM »
I've completed the grapevine and breadboarded it and when I hook up the on/on switch as it is shown in the build instructions, I get a great sound out of the down position, but a much lower and undistorted signal out of the up position.  I messed with it a bit and found that when I hook the two wires from dpdt1 together on the same lug (middle lug of the left hand column), I get a good signal.  Could I have done something wrong on the pcb?  Should I just wire it with both dpdt1 wires hooked together or continue searching for a solution?
