First Veroboard and 1590a
« on: January 25, 2014, 04:02:00 AM »
Yay! I got a delivery today and built my first Veroboard build. I am still waiting on the stomp switch and haven't boxed it up, but I am so happy that it works  ;D
It is a Rangemaster NPN treble booster.

Hey man, that's great!
I built several dozen vero circuits and really had no need for pcbs for the longest time. Only when chinese fab became so cheap did I switch over to pcb...

Keep it going, those can be really challenging when the pot count increases but they are loads of fun!

Sweet!!!
Pedal building is like the opposite of sex.  All the fun stuff happens before you get in the box.

Thanks guys, I like the sound but would like a bit more bass in it. But then I guess it wouldn't be a treble booster.

The transistor is a AC194

I was happy building on the PCBs but this feels more like DIY. Now I see why people here were interested in something to hold their work steady. I got some blue poster tack and it cut my cussing down about 75%. I was soo happy to hear that guitar when I plugged in.

I am planning on building this one next

I am working my way up to build another Paisley type drive, a Blues Driver, and this cream tone.

The creamtone was on my short 2build list but sadly it fell victim to ITead...  ::)
