My First Chunk Chunk
« on: January 04, 2014, 01:53:03 PM »
I finally finished my Chunk Chunk. The build was not difficult but making sure I had the right parts was a pain. I ended up needing 2 resistors to finish my Pastie Drive and a 3n3 cap to complete a SuckerPunch Over drive. So those will come soon.

Here she is. I had a loud squealing sound from the gain last night, but boxed it up and figured I would dial with that by lowering the volts to the j201s. After I got it together no more squeal. This pedal is HEAVY Metal at its finest. The Led is a Red with very high resistor so it looks a little like a burning ember

BRUTAL!!!! I've built a couple of them and they're just awesome.
Pedal building is like the opposite of sex.  All the fun stuff happens before you get in the box.

The chunk was my first high gain pedal :) Gnarly, brutal things.

Very cool, I have yet to build one. Your off-board wiring looks nice and clean. Great build you go there.

Very nice build.

It's a cool circuit.  Definitely worth building.
