Thor / Mushroom / MiniWulf
« on: September 22, 2013, 02:22:28 PM »
Thor
This is another Codtone Expandra, this time for Cleggy (who populated the board, though I did the SMD bit). This time Thor (mine was Loki so it seemed logical).






Mushroom
Oooh Mushroom!

Another Grind Customs Bend Over. Again Cleggy's, again he populated the PCB.






MiniWulf
Finally a replacement to my original Wolf Computer pedal. It's a noise machine so I had to build it. It's my weakness. It's made out of a lot of surplus parts so owes me less than a tenner, for that I can afford to keep it around until I once again realise it's actually completely useless (the Fuzz Factory does this sort of thing better IMO).

Does that mean he's the heroic one, and you're the sneaky bugger specialising in indoor sports? :) ;) Bloody nice as always!

Bend Over, got it now !
Hey Juan Solo, such nice pedals.
Few questions about the Bend Over.
Is the overall sound is close to the Ge version
or it's someting completely different ?
What Hfe's transistors are you using ?
Do you have solid low end or it's more trebly ?
Thanks,
Mich P.

The trannies came out of Matts secret stash. They're old and their gains are around the same sort of range you'd want in a bender. So a lot lower than you'd expect for Si. The three we made (mine, Matt's and Cleggy's) all really genuinely do have that MkII vibe. It's right there. It's really punchy rather than trebly too. But they're all using these old trannies. Mine had a pair of BC208s in Q1&2 and a BC115 in Q3. I think the first two were 80-90 and the third was 110ish Hfe off the top of my head.

The only thing you can really level against them is that they're all a bit noisy, but that's probably down to the trannies.
