ZPDLX build...!
« on: January 27, 2014, 06:05:46 PM »
Hey all, here is my zero point DLX build I did a while back and I decided to put the official Madbean decal on there after the fact... This pedal is great and is permanent on my board!
And complete on my board

No need to see guts... Crammed in the box and looks like sim city in there.

Next up for me is harbinger univibe

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

Okay, twist my arm!


One resistor in the socket I think was for trying to get the delay to match unity so that one is good to socket

Yeah, I did the same thing with my build.  I socketed a resistor to match unity and a cap to tame the treble a bit.

Which ones would that be? I have the board on my desk waiting to be populated...

Very nice build dude.

That decal (and the little extra salmon) is really cool too!

I socketed C2 and R5.

Thanks all! On a side note, do NOT Use those metal frame jacks for the ZPDLX ... I had to ninja mine in there and next time I make one of these, I will use those slim plastic jacks. Fitting the power jack was easy, just a standard one, those just fit if you drill the hole for it just right.

Cheers!

Nice one, really looks fantastic. I used closed jacks and it was a PITA to get all that stuff in there nevertheless. When I saw your build, I actually thought I should have better used open metal jacks....
