I used Smallbear 27k-60k / 2meg LDR's, while Juan and Lace used Futurlec 2A's. That's the only difference I'm aware of.

Yeah, you and I talked once before. I am forging ahead, and I also have the small bear parts. I'm optimistic.

The LED is more likely to lead to ticking than the LDRs by drawing more current.

Did anyone try lifting the LFO chip above ground?

Nice new layout though  :)

Used other LDRs in Cleggys and it made no odds.  Cleggy hacked around with his (Lace's old one) trying to separate the sides of the circuit and managed to cut the tick in half I'd say. But it was still there. It must be something in the water here ;)

Lace's big 'un doesn't tick at all. Still got another one of those to build at some point for MrC.

Super impressive Alan! I just had my first go at Eagle and was all proud of my booster. Was :D

That's up to Lace :)

Sonarchotic, I was working on getting a bloody reverb board working for the last couple weeks, on and off (more off if I'm honest.) Only got the mongrel thing working last night (and I laid out the board!)
