Neon Kard Table (K.L.O.N.E)
« on: August 22, 2014, 09:21:18 AM »
Yup, another K.L.O.N.E.  1n270 diodes (um, these ARE essential), Neutrik Jacks, Panasonic ECQ-V caps.  TI Opamps.  Installed the 8n2 instead of the 3n9 cap in the toan section.  Powdercoated in neon pink and laser etched by me.  3mm flat top clear white LED. 

Layout is called..."Kard Table".  I am fairly satisfied with this layout, however going to do some tweaking to allow for even easier assembly...  tweak tweak tweak (lather, rinse, repeat)

The pics don't really capture just how blindingly bright this neon powder coat is but here we go:

Full of Win.

Did you try swapping the toan (I blame Rej for the fact I spell it like that now) resistors and going with the 3n9 or do you prefer them the 'wrong' way with the 8n2?

I really should build one to compare/contrast but I find myself really not being arsed ;)

Love the etch, but that colour is just way over the top.  Nice job Ben.  Think the next Klone I build I'll put the tone caps on a switch for shits and giggles.
The only known cure in the world for GAS is death.  That's my story, and I'm sticking to it.

Thanks guys.  So, for my enlightenment which is the "correct" values for the Toan section?  I always thought the 8n2 was the correct value instead of the 3n9?  Hmm.

Here is the section from my schematic.



You are saying the R21 (100k) and the R20 (4k7) should be swapped?

Love the name and that etch looks uber perfect.

Exactly how much less manly does the fact that I love that color on the pedal makes me?  8)

Also, much love for the notations on the board and that etch is just so sharp! Great stuff, Ben!

From the Klone science thread, R19 and R20 are the wrong way around. Those swapped with the 3n9 is allegedly the correct way of doing things. However leaving them be and fitting an 8n2 offers an alternative solution. I haven't tried it yet, so am only speaking from what I've read ( I've always fitted an 8n2, indeed I think we might have been responsible for that one ;) ).

Well now, that's just all kinds of cool.  8)

I suspect this is a really nice build.  It looked really nice for the couple of seconds I saw it before the blinding pink enclosure burned out my retinas.

/ hopes there are no spelling errors in post.

Looks great.  Funny, I'm building a pink pedal now for a singer I work with.  It is just a little intense.

I love the graphics, Ben.

... and c'mon guys! If he called it "Pu$$y Pink", you'd be all over it! :D

I'm guessing that you got more than one board?

Are you trying to entice the teenage girlie market segment and pull them over the cardtable with this colour scheme?  ;)
Sweet build amd layout, Ben!

That's kick add!! Every time I build a klone, somebody buys it up. I gotta build another one and not post it anywhere. I love the layout!!
Pedal building is like the opposite of sex.  All the fun stuff happens before you get in the box.

Board mounted pots in a 1590bb FTW.  Looks great.  Being color blind the pink doesn't offend me at all;)

A pink klon with a card table on it, what's not to love about that. Had me giggling. These boards going to be available at some point? Looks like a nice straight forward build. Also, that laser etching cable out spot on.. one day I will have one.. one day.
