Open Discussion / Velcro
« on: September 07, 2011, 01:07:38 PM »
What velcro do you guys use to keep your pedals on your board? I bought some stuff from a local fabric store and everytime I take my PT-pro out of it gig bag, almost all my pedals have completely fallen off. It must be weak glue on the velcro that's on the pedals..
I found this stuff, any other suggestions?

Here's a circuit I've been holding on to for awhile now. It's the guitarpcb Modified Ross Compressor. I was putting off getting the CA3080 until I checked on Ebay and found a little bulk of them for real cheap w/ free shipping. A friend's been asking me about this a lot so I decided to bust it out. Not to hard to assemble, everything went together really nicely in a 125B. My original plan was to pack it in a 1590B but I don't think it was gonna happen. I really like the sound of this circuit. It adds something I just can't put my finger on but I like it! A whole lot, I kinda don't wanna let go of it. As I bring both knobs to full volume it does get slightly noisy but also adds a sort of boost/light distortion that goes really nice with the compression effect. Through a tube amp its low end glory and amazing sustain!! Made my solid state little Crate practice amp come to life as well. Before building this I had no idea what I was missing, now I feel like I need one!!!

General Questions / Box Of Metal
« on: July 31, 2011, 02:20:51 PM »
IIRC there used to be a project titled Box of Rock and the other Box Of Metal. Now the names are all changed. I've never built either of these but I figure I'd give them a try. I'm guessing the Kokbox is the Box of Rock but which one is the BOM? Or was there never a BOM project?  :)

Have any of you tried this guys PCB's? They look really nice and it looks like he's got a nice footswitch PCB.

General Questions / Doom Butter
« on: June 26, 2011, 12:41:32 PM »
Getting ready to build the DoomButter I etched earlier this week. It's all straight forward except there isn't any value listed for the LDR. Can I use any LDR like 5k light 500k dark or does it need to be specific to the circuit?

Thanks  ;D

Build Reports / Shrine Fuzz #2
« on: June 21, 2011, 02:34:16 PM »
Another friend requested a violet rams head just like my buddy in The Shrine is using. I offered to make it custom but he insisted on the same logo as the first one so I had no choice. He convinced his bass player to get one too! Hopefully soon I'll have some to sell at their shows.
I socketed this one like crazy to experiment with. Spend most of my time on the mids knob and jumpered the emitter resistors for more gain. Planning on tweaking to my buddys specifications after he plays it for a little. I like this one a little more in the smaller 1590B enclosure.

Sound Like This Guy! Holy crap he has the nastiest fuzzrite!!!

Build Reports / El Pe Be 1
« on: June 14, 2011, 06:25:56 PM »
I feel like my girlfriend did such a great job painting this I had to post it to show everyone.
Inside there's nothing special here, just your run of the mill GGG LPB-1. But that doesn't disqualify it from being a great sounding addition to my board. Alone I get tons of volume boost, honestly almost too much! Into a fuzz i get total infinite sustain! Takes any fuzz pedal past its extreme. The boost is fat sounding but the circuit is so easy to manipulate for many other results. Try two in series for some fun results!

Open Discussion / Shipping Question
« on: June 07, 2011, 08:37:20 PM »
I haven't done too much shipping before and I need to ship a few things out. One thing is International and the other is in the US. Brian ships for an incredible low price. I'd like something like that. What do you guys use/recommend?

Mods / Fatpants 17v mod
« on: June 07, 2011, 07:46:56 PM »
Im wondering if I can take the 17v output tap and wire it to a second dc jack? If so then i could use a male to male dc plug to power another pedal at 17v externally.
Im thinking 17v tap to outside + lug of dc jack. Would this work?

Just saw an awesome demo of this pedal. Would be a great addition to the Clari(not).
Anyone know if this has been traced yet?

After I put in my order the other day they sent me some coupon codes. I spent about $100 bucks so I'm sure I'm not gonna be ordering again at least in the next week. I have 2 coupon codes which both expire on May 30, 2011. One if for $15 off an order of $100 and the other is $6 off an order of $50. Wish they would have let me use this towards my order but its all good. These also would be great towards enclosures but they are out of stock and I'd rather see someone use the coupon then let them expire. Send me a PM if your interested and I'll give you the code of course!  :)

Audio/Video Demos / Green Muff Gruntbox
« on: May 28, 2011, 10:56:37 AM »
Here's a video demo of a Gruntbox built to Green Muff specs. I built it stock, no modifications. It's pretty wild and insane definitely sounds much different than Violet Rams heads I've built. I didn't worry about lighting since the box is plain and not to visually stimulating. Not to mention Youtube makes it darker and really destroys the sound quality. The gruntbox schem matches the current mudbunny so it could qualify for a mudbunny green muff as well!  :)

First green muff I've done but third Gruntbox now. This pedal is really awesome. Lots of meaty bass on one end to nasty grit with tons of bite on the other end of the tone spectrum. Unity is slightly past noon on the volume knob but crank it to maxx for that bigger muff sound. Always tend to use it with sustain on full. Now I have to build a triangle and mayo!

Edit: Moved demo video to new section!
