A bunch of pedals
« on: June 09, 2013, 08:36:03 PM »
Well, encouraged by pickdropper, I decided to post some of my stuff here... some are madbean's, some are not.

Vemuran Jan Ray + Mojo Hand Iron Bell (I'll post some gutshots when I'm back home)


Klon Centaur, using bajaman's layout


Ersatz Verben reverb


Devi Ever Hyperion II


Paul C. Timmy


Devi Ever Ruby



BB Preamp (using madbean's great layout)


Small Clone chorus


A couple of script Phase 90s


JHS All American and a tap tempo


Skreddy Screwdriver (using madbeans cosmopolitan)



Catalinbread Dirty Little Secret (using madbeans grapevine)



OCD V3 (one of my first etchings)


Himmelstrutz Fetto



Rat Whiteface with ruetz



Rat Whiteface with a repro board (nowadays, I changed the clipping to mosfets, sounds freaking awesome)

Great builds all around, cool stuff!
May I ask which MOSFETs you ended up using in the Rat? Cheers.

Thank you very much, buddy! I used a pair of BS170. Sounds ace with BAT41, also

Hey, those look great.  A whole lot of builds there, too.

Wow! I like that there's a pretty common theme here. You build pedals to be played. Yeah, they're pretty colours, but artwork isn't important when you're stomping!

Liking it. Also, is the Vemarum really different than the Paul C.?

Right on!
That's a swag of solid builds 8)

I concur, you can't beat a mosfet rat.

I do like this minimalist aproach, gives me the sensation that I'll never get tired of the looks from the pedals hehehe. About the Vemuran, no! They sound pretty much the same... the bass and treble pots work a little different, because of the value and they work backwards, if you consider the way the timmy pots work. But they both sound awesome!

Right on!

Fuckin' A! Mosfet Rat with Ruetz mod = tone heaven!

I told you I don't post here much, hehehe. Some of the pictures are from builds that are long gone, I like to take pictures just to keep the record... I have some other pictures from other projects, but the post was already too long, so I think I'm going to post them later this week (since I have some pedals waiting to be finished, hehe)

Well, I had to open the Jan Ray + Iron Bell, so I took some gutshots. Here it is!

 Wow!  I really need to stop slacking on the builds.  I agree mosfets on the rat amazing.  Adding a germanium to one side even better, tantalum caps for the first 4.7uf and 2.2uf= over the top!

Yeah, I always use tantalums in my Rat builds! And I must say I never tryied adding germanium to the mosfets, think I'm gonna try it this weekend!

And what about the pedal between the Wah and the Rat?

Hey Battery Acid,
How are you?  Where did you get the info or schematic for the All American?  I've never built a Rat and I am looking for something for the future.

Hahaha, yeah! That little awesome Rangemaster!

Hey buddy! Just fine, preparing to go to the streets protest agains brazilian government! I don't have the schematics for the All American, but following the only gutshot I found, I think there's very little difference from a stock rat: Ruetz Mod (using a potentiometer), and a DPDT switching between assym clipping (1n4148) and sym clipping (a pair of red leds). Knowing a bunch of JHS pedals, all clones with little mods, do this and I think you're good to go!

Thank you for the information.  I was wondering if that was the story on JHS.

Others around the world support you.  Be safe!
