Im yet to fully playtest the Machine. It sounds horrid on its own I know that much XD
Will get time to audition through my full setup tommorow.
It sounds fairly close to the ones on Youtube I reckon.

Did this for a mate. I made my own Fuzz Factory a few months back on vero.
This was soooo easy in comparison.

Thanks Madbean. Your boards are fantastic.


Plain jane for now - see what my mate wants as a decal

Insides - pretty neat if I say so myself!

very beautiful build. Love everything about it. Even the enclosure is echoing the vintage Ross (minus the recessed knobs).

re: Ge Diodes, well I hope they are real they cost a reasonable amount.
Ordered some 1n60p recently for cheap as chips which are meant to be a decent sub for the 1n34a

Are you talking about Futurlec? The 1n34a's I got from them are the same as the 1n60P. Yes cheap as can be at a penny a piece but they are fizzzzzy. I want to try some real 1n34a's to compare if its just these being knock-offs or if that's the general characteristic of germ diodes. But for the 50cents I spent it was well worth an experiment!

Read this, depends if you trust that guy !
Maybe worth putting some on a switch like he says and seeing for yourself.

Yeah, thought it was worth a punt putting some in the order.

The 1n34a's I have are as far as I can tell the real deal.

graphics are just a rip of the Zvex so no credit due to me ;)

They are Omeg 16mm miniature.

Finished this one up. Was a bit of a pain, had to fix a connection or two.

Deliberately sanded the paint off the top before adding decal to add to the industrial vibe.







sounds pretty horrid in a good way ;)

I think the ribbon I have is cheap - the copper wire is simply 5 strands I think, and its not robust enough.

would something like the push / relax knob off the mastotron work?
That changes the input inpedance unless I am mistaken...

Hi. Found the issue. Dodgy joint on one of the pots  ::) ::)

Sorry guys!
Thanks for the awesome suggestions though. I do have an audio probe, that was my next, along with posting the voltages.

I tried using some rainbow ribbon wire - never again! gonna try to rewire all the pots.
Whats the best way to desolder the double sided boards again?!

HI,

I recently built up the Macheen PCB, today in fact.
I tested the circuit outside of boxing up, by connecting up with crocodile clips the in out 9v and ground.
Everything worked fine, so I proceeded to box up. Lo and behold, now boxed up there is an issue.
The effect passes clean fine, when engaged, its SUPER low output, even with every control dimed.
I can hear the fuzz effect, but its way way way too low, way lower than when I tested without the switching in place.

Ok you say, you effed up the switching.
Uh uh. I unsoldered everything, hooked the ins out and powers up like before, and same scenario.
Now the only issue I had when testing was before I soldered the power leads in to the power supply connect, I decided to test with the battery again (I use a battery snap and crocodile clips).
Somehow I managed to touch them together. This is the only issue I see.

I dont see how that will have damaged the effect, but I wanted to point it out. Ive tried to test briefly the other connections and all pots and everything feels secure.

I cant see it being a grounding issue either.


anyone experienced something similar?

HELP! :)
