Another OCD!
« on: October 08, 2014, 02:31:15 AM »
Hey all,

Customer request for an OCD (v3) so I was happy to oblige! This one was a milestone of sorts for me as I did all the artwork in Illustrator from scratch as opposed to my usual method of er, 're-purposing' bits and bobs found on the Googleweb! ;)

Fuzz Dog board and box etched with NaOH as per norm, the detailing was a bit fiddly but I got there, customer is very pleased so it's a win!

Wow, that's too much Illustrator work!

I love your etchings man, so neat and clean you wouldn't even need the paintwork!

Damn, and from scratch too?  That is ridiculous.  Awesome work.

Did you run out of 1n4001?  (I see a jumper)

Cheers guys! :)

That's the spot for the optional germanium clipping diode found in version 4 which I don't like as I find it thins out the sound, v3 is my favourite iteration! :)

That's the diode that's in V4 that does nothing except make one of the MOSFETs stop working. ;) (Of course, jumpering it returns the MOSFETs to their prior job of being silicon body diodes.)
