Open Discussion / Demo Section
« on: May 27, 2011, 09:23:17 PM »
I like what Myramyd said,
"I think with this new change in direction my advice would be do do some good demos of the unique/new projects. You could even ask us builders to do them. I think that will be invaluable for helping sell them. Right now we can easily pull up a demo of a pedal that is a clone on YouTube but, when you see a new project it's harder to really "want/need" to buy it unless you have a good handle on what it is and does."

There's a couple of demos out there which all sound great but they are scattered and not always easy to find especially for a newcomer taking a quick glance. I think if we could create a new section and start contributing demos it would be a great addition to the forum. It's always nice to hear other players applications.
I understand this means more work for Brian but it's just an idea and suggestion.

General Questions / Simple Potentiometer Question
« on: May 25, 2011, 09:57:37 AM »
In the process of ordering parts for some new builds. One of them being the open source Tube Screamer project. I'm unclear about the labeling on one of the pots. It says 20kW which I've never seen before. Hopefully someone can clarify a little for me.  :)

Mods / Mudbunny/Gruntbox Mids Control Pot

I have a bunch of gruntbox pcbs but I really wished they had the Mids control pots like the newer mudbunnys. Looking at the schem I realized its super easy but there's no value listed for the pot in the mudbunny pdf. Wondering what value you guys used?

Open Discussion / Tayda Updates
« on: May 19, 2011, 09:02:51 AM »
I've been talking to the sales person over at Tayda and they are adding a lot of stuff to their site! These include enclosures (1590B for now) and 3pdt switchs as someone else had mentioned. Upon talking to the person they told me they are trying to add more products for pedal builders to make it less stops for what you need. So they are working on DC power jacks, 1/4" jacks, more metal film resistors, more transistors, and adding poly box caps which they said will be half the price of other places but will be stocked 1 by 1 as its a pricey investment. I wanted to ask all of you if there was more products I should mention for them to add to their site. It seems to me like they are trying to make a great shop better!

Just found this and I have to admit I'm very confused! Each board can be built to about 3 or 4 pedals. I really wanna try some of her stuff now!

Build Reports / The Shrine Fuzz

My buddy's been asking me for a big muff for awhile now. He really liked the last VRH Gruntbox build I did so that was his request. Man this thing rocks stock and all!! Don't have the pedal for guts shots but I can get them if you guys insist!

This is a fuzz/od my buddy has been asking me to build for him now for awhile. I'd personally like one for myself too. It has the extra setting via an interal DIP switch. There's also a few different versions. This video seemed to show most of the settings. Check it out, what do you guy think?


Open Discussion / Just In New Polyester Film Caps
« on: March 23, 2011, 09:27:15 PM »
Got an email today from the Mammoth Electronics newsletter about a few new products, one of them being to my delight!  ;D Vikiin Polyester Film Box Caps! They are very reasonably priced and look just like Topmay/Wima quality. I'm getting tired of waiting for Futurlec to ship my order out, so I'm kinda feeling going with these. I'm sure I'll get them first too. Thinking this could be a very crucial group buy also if enough people are interested. Mammoth cuts some serious deals on their other products.
What do you guys think? Anyone tried this brand before?

Here's the link:

Open Discussion / Anyone ever used one of these?

Seen this around before. Only 6 bucks and if it works efficently with one hand i say this is essential. Anyone used one before?

Requests / Frequency pedal
« on: March 04, 2011, 11:37:28 AM »
I saw this band recently(2 piece bass and drums) and they had such a wild sound! At the end i lurked up to the front and noticed the guy had a moog freqbox pedal. It was making his bass sound absurdly large and heavy! I was wondering if this would be a possible suggestion for a new project as those pedals are $300+.
Can anyone give me an explanation of what that freqbox pedal is doing.  ;D
Maybe there's a DIY layout alreadly?

General Questions / Wet cat delay
« on: March 04, 2011, 11:22:16 AM »
I recently recieved a wet cat in a pcb lot i bought. I believe the layout was made by bajaman, anyone know any information regarding this project? Is this an aqua puss clone similar to madbean's aquaboy?


Build Reports / First Gruntbox Build
« on: March 01, 2011, 04:50:13 PM »
I finished my first DIY pedal build being one of those wonderful Gruntbox boards. One of my buddies asked if I could build him a Violet Rams Head muff and i knew this would work perfectly. It was a fairly simple build and went together quick and easy. Fired up the first time. The only problem was the tone pot wasn't making any change at first and the pedal was very out of control!! Almost like tone stack bypass setting on the BYOC muff i built. So I replaced it and now it's 100% functional and there is a huge difference in turning the tone from bass to treble! This also was the first time i sourced the parts for a build and all went smooth!

Sounds much different than the muff tone I'm used to. I didn't know what to expect but I'm impressed. It is much more of a classic fuzz sound to me than a doom machine. It also has TONS of sustain!

My buddy is very happy with his new pedal and said it worked super well for his latest band recordings. I built another one I'll post when i get the enclosure together. I'm also working on a demo of this beast with a 100 watt marshall. Coming Soon!!
