The ghosting looks sweet.
And of course the FP is sweet.

Excellent work jimi.
I am so far from having the patience to finish an enclosure super nice, you guys that do impress the hell out of me.

Sounds great I assume?

I'm into it. I love tube amps and plan on building a blackface clone someday. Maybe a bass men pre into deluxe reverb power section.

Build Reports / Focus (Serendipity)
« on: June 24, 2014, 11:21:49 AM »
Here is my serendipity build. I built it to madbean specs with a opa2604 opamp. Sounds great. I have tried a few opamps including tl072/ 4558D/ LF353 and I like the 2604 best at the moment with the 4558D coming in second.


Props to haberdasher for the excellent board. This was my first build using an etch board. Worked well and no troubleshooting needed.

Labels are some small vinyl stickers I found at hobby lobby. I cleared over them a bit.

Here is a photo.



And a gut shot.

Both look very nice. I just finished my serendipity last night. My first time with an etched board also. A little learning curve but I didn't have to hard a time with it.

What a sweet etching job!
Is that the same as a super duper 2in1?

Build Reports / Vanilla SHO
« on: March 26, 2014, 05:41:08 PM »
Just a simple vanilla boost.
Used vero layout from IvIarks compact layout.
All stock. I may or may not label the pedal. The guy I built it for likes all of his pedals to look generic.
Anyone have any luck clear coating a powder coated enclosure?
I ran out of jacks today and waiting for delivery of a new lot.
I love that my wiring is getting neater with every build.

Thank you!

I forgot to mention that I used 2N5457 since I didn't have any 2N5484. I tried a J201 also but it didn't want to bias under about 14V. I wander if that's ok with an 18v supply.
I am also going to try out some other trannies I have, but these sound great.

I had severe whine/high pitched squeal with the ICL7660 I had (non "S"). I subbed in a MAX1044 and it runs nice and quiet.

Sounds great.

Build Reports / Katana Vero Build
« on: March 16, 2014, 07:58:21 PM »
Built this Katana Boost using IvIark's rev 2 layout. Works great. Had one resistor lead in wrong hole and had two shorted input jacks that gave me fits. I couldn't figure out how my input was being shorted.
I was going to use a small wedge type hammond enclose but I had this one laying around from a ross comp I built and the output jack and full size pot were to close and were shorting. I had labelled the Ross with a sharpie and so I just went at it with some sandpaper and removed the silver metallic and primer from the edges and removed all my sharpie markings. I went with the worn out look. I didn't use a pot with a switch cause I needed to fill the other hole in the enclosure.
I went with the older beat up knob in the end to match the theme. lol
Here are some pics

Sounds very nice. This mod could easily be put on a switch. Cool
