Open Discussion / New PT2399 version?
« on: February 04, 2015, 12:47:00 PM »
My local distributor just anounced this on their facebook page:

PT2399D-D: they say is exactly like the PT2399 but with the distortion problem sorted out.
I'll get some to try and make a comparation.

Open Discussion / The useless pedal list
« on: January 29, 2015, 06:17:52 AM »
I used to think there wasn't such a thing as a useless pedal, that you could use anything to create music... until I met this:

Is there any other pedal out there you think has no practical use?

Open Discussion / Hmmm... Catalinbread's Self-oscilating Fuzz
« on: January 24, 2015, 07:40:58 AM »
I like the volume interaction.... super gated fuzz  :P.
Don't know if useful, but definitely a fun pedal it is. Would like to see its insides...

Dear gentlemen (and ladies if there's any around).

I just got a semi-broken DOD Fx-17. It seems to be totally fine except for the action of the on/off switch so repair shouldn't be a hassle.

The thing is that, while searching for an schematic on the web, I found some links to the now closed diyguitarist webpage on which Mr. Paul Marossy showed a process of troubleshooting this beast and some information about the pedal itself that everyone seems to love.
Now, the questions (not in orden of importance):

1. Who is Paul Marossy and why on earth I didn't knew anything about him? 
I've read some posts on diystompboxes from this year on which Paul says he was quitting this hobby and clossing his page. The guy has more than 15000 post there, so the leaving of anyone participating that much in the diy community is something to think about..
I've only been in this hobby for almost 3 years and this forum is where I am more active, but I think it is important to learn about veterans.

2. Does anyone have an schematic for the DOD Fx-17?

3. Does anyone have that info everyone refers to in diyguitarist web? I do not want to ask Paul, as I respect his decision.


Did you ever hear about this company?

Open Discussion / Jobs I would like to have

Someone shared this on facebook:

And for those that do not want to click on a lick, here's a video:

Creating sound for videogames and films is one of my dream jobs. And that's why I'm trying to get into an Audio Signal Processing Master for next year (that and guitar pedals, of course  ;D).

What would be yours?? (don't have to be music related)

Open Discussion / Tone is in the hands..... or is it in the picks?
« on: November 25, 2014, 09:26:39 AM »
Gray and rainy day here in the North of Spain.
I was playing some guitar and drinking coffee while trying to figure out the harmony on Chick Corea's "Windows" when the hipster inside me thought it would be cool to take some photos of my pick collection.

I've been a classical player since I was 7 years, and tone nuances/refinements are something we are taught since we grow our first fingernail. So, when I began to study electric guitar, although most of the time I use fingerstyle of hybrid picking, I got interested in all the different picks you could get out there.

Here's my arsenal (some others got lost or were given to friends):

The question is: are you picky about picks?

Open Discussion / Sharing my happiness

Only 1 subject left to finish my EE grade!!
I have the exam tomorrow, but I got the rest of the marks and I passed them.
I can see the light at the end of the tunel. :)


Someone shared this on another forum a month ago.

It is a good (and also free) resource about how guitar and guitar electronics work from a scientific point of view (yes, there's math in there). I read some chapters and it is really interesting.

The theory section also includes some great info too:

Build Reports / VIPfx Pastie Drive
« on: August 02, 2014, 02:18:25 PM »
I built this one in April, but didn't feel like uploading the photos till today... ::)

Nothing but a Pasley Drive clone in a VIPFx board with a 1776's Opto-tron and a beautiful ColesBD enclosure.

You cannot see it in the photos, but the led matches the wiring... :D

I want to sell this one because it does not fit my rig... (plus I have many other drives that I like better), but I love that enclosure (I wish Ben had more of those)

Open Discussion / NEW GERMS!
« on: August 01, 2014, 12:53:31 PM »
Some days you get sweet deals... (this batch also included some russian mini-pentodes and 30m of teflon cable plus a bunch of BC109C/BC107)

(I'm a little OCD so I carefully straightened all those transistor leads...)

Open Discussion / What is the Madbean Sugarbomb?
« on: July 12, 2014, 11:38:00 AM »
Searching for some circuit ideas this morning I stumbled into a thread at FSB that talked about the Madbean Sugarbomb and how interesting it was (it was a pretty old thread, from 2009).

So, what was the Sugarbomb? An overdrive? Does any of you have the project's pdf?

Open Discussion / Recommend me a good booster for acoustic guitar.
« on: June 22, 2014, 12:59:18 PM »
A friend of mine plays gipsy jazz and wants a good booster with a tone control to use on stage.

He's been using my Kingslayer for a while set completely clean and he wants a version of it without clipping options.

As Kingslayers are out of stock for now, I thought I could search for another options out there. Does anyone have any experience with this?
