First Build...SNACK SHACK
« on: February 27, 2011, 08:42:20 PM »
Well finally....my first attempt at a build and here's the results.  No pictures but a little clip:

I've got a couple of others in the works and will post pic's soon. 

Let me know what you think...it sounds a little 'crispy' to me...but maybe it's supposed to be that way???  ???

did you change any of the components from the ones on the build sheet?

It sounds very raw :)

Just the input cap to match the Black/Gold version.  I'm going to play with some trannies to see what I get.

Don't worry, that happens to the best of us. My personal favorite combo in the Snack Shack is a 33nF input and 47nF output cap. Sounds a bit fatter than standard, but not overly mushy. I also like a NPN germanium for Q2.
