Another mini, i'm currently trying to find the compressor that suits my need the best, this is my second one, the first being Ross style comp.

I really like the transparence of the optical compressor.

Build Reports / Just another 3 in 1.........(mini content)Clip Added!
« on: July 15, 2012, 09:24:50 AM »
A while ago i've been.............semi-challenged to build a 3 in 1 mini........here it is!

Genuine Bardel Pedals Stage 3 Booster PCB on wich you have to twist the legs of the FET to make it work...  , GRinger, GBOM Fuzz (OKF)



Think 3D or die.....haha!







Nom Nom Nom!!!   ;D



Beautiful sun out here today!  :)







The sound, it was my first time doing a green ringer........i definitly hear it and i love it, was also my first OKF, really like how it excites the gringer and with the boost at the end as a master volume thing just get so sweet, really love this little pedal :)

Build Reports / My Modded Vjr, Electro Swap!
« on: July 14, 2012, 11:40:10 PM »
Hi Y'all!

I got my Vjr in a trade couple months ago, what made me want to get that amp was the simplicity of modding it. It's now done..........well.........., there's still some stuff that i want to get done, but that's just to let the fun last.  8)

My evening picstory:

First of all, i needed to drill the chassis face plate to accomodate the added switch and knob.



I changed the response capacitors for NOS Russian PETP and the 100nf cap for a fish tank.....
Also change the 2 electros for some ELNA audio grade.



Once all the mods are installed.

From left to right you have:
Master Volume (Mod)
Gain Switch (Mod)
Bright Switch (Mod)
Negative Feedback Switch (Mod), that need to be wired to the 8ohms speaker outlet (the one i use the most)
Volume (Stock), now act as the preamp volume   8)
And input jack (Stock)

While i was at it i changed some 1M resistors with the Allen Bradley that Capt'N generously PIFed me :) Thanks Man!

I will later change the input jack and volume to they are directly wired to the pcb instead of using those quick connects



The components i removed!  



Completely assembled and ready to rock!



Now! The extreme make over!  ;D

Build Reports / Violator, Stereo Masterizzzer!
« on: July 08, 2012, 09:16:54 PM »
MadBeans Bloviator! 8)

Thanks to GuitarBen for the pcbs!

I built this «stereo» to be able to use it my guitar setup and in the studio aswell. Next phase of this project for wich i'm waiting some parts. Is a piggy back box that will convert the ins and outs HiZ to LoZ to use the unit with line level signal.

Among the 3 IC needed to complete one circuit, there's one TL071, i only had one so i subbed the other circuit with a TL081, it absolutely sound the same! haha! I will try more tomorrow at ear bleeding levels to see if there would be a difference......

That metalic red paint pisses me off, it makes 3 time that i use it and it always «purffle»lolol, I'll set the enclosure on fire later and clear coat it! Revenge Sweet Revenge! :twisted:

PITA Boxing Up Picstory! (Had a hard time fitting all that in there...)

Build Reports / Swirly Duo!
« on: June 24, 2012, 11:54:10 PM »
Hi everyone, i did these 2 builts using enclosures i got in a part lot i recently bought, had those 2 swirls made by DragonFly in there..... 8)

First is Josh's Rub-a-Dub reverb, i used a medium tank, the range is absolutely spot on for my need.

This is my first reverb, is there a way to mod this circuit in a way that i could, with the flip of a switch make this thing go into feedback?





Second one is another Dist Plus proto board by Culture Jam, the mini i built was going to Phreek on BYOC, really loved that circuit so i built one for my self with mojo in mind......

Going to replace the IC with a metal can one later  8)

Build Reports / Arctic Rush...9 down, I'm done!
« on: June 02, 2012, 02:26:49 PM »
These are'nt madbean builts.......but i tought i could share over here aswell.

I work in the Arctic as a Ironworker/Welder/Heavy machinery operator.

I got my job call thursday evening and i got a load of built to complete before i leave, for customers and distributor....

So here we go, stay tuned...they will be couple more to come! :)

Build Reports / Mini Phreek +
« on: May 27, 2012, 11:40:46 PM »
This is not a Madbean circuit, but a proto board from Culture Jam, the Plus Dist.

It's meant to be an hybrid of the MXR Distortion+ and DOD 250, it sounds really nice. 8)

It was doing a while that i builted a mini, so i had to give some love to my electrical tape roll....

Open Discussion / Gauging Interest, «Flipper Switch» PCB
« on: May 18, 2012, 01:18:47 PM »
Hi everyone, i'm pretty new on this forum but i always have a load of project going on, so i tought i could share some of them here.

Other than here, i'm only active (read, pro-active) on the BYOC message board.

I've been using lately in couple of my builts a «flipper switch», basically it gives you the opporturnity in a 2in1 built to choose the order of the effects in the chain.

The pcb would be mounted on a 4pdt solder lug toggle switch, with led CLR and all connection needed.

This wiring is easy to perform by «hard wiring» everything, but we all like to have our builts neat an clean.

It would be a pro-fab double sided pcb.

Here's an exemple of what can be achieve with this switching.

3 in 1 overdrive

Red: Klone
Blue: OCD
Green: TS9

In this built, there's a flipper switch for the OCD and TS9 to decide in wich order they go and a flipper switch for the Klone and OCD/TS9 combo, so it goes before or after that subgroup...

Build Reports / Uproar Built!
« on: May 15, 2012, 01:47:06 PM »
Hi everyone, second post here, coming from the BYOC forum......

I built this a while ago but it's my only madbean built (for now), got plenty of other etched boards coming in soon... 8)

This uproar sounds a bit softer than what it should be, really love it that way, got the clipping switch and face melter mod.

You may find my english writting hard too read sometime, sorry about it, i'm a frenchie! Haha!
