Cardinal trem mouser bom?
« on: January 03, 2017, 08:04:54 PM »
Any chance anyone has a mouser bom for the cardinal trem? Some buddies at work want to dive in to pedal building and want to build Cardinals. They build guitars for a living and do a lot of soldering etc., so I think they'll be fine with this one.

Considering you can't get through hole FETs or the optocouplers there, it might be better to just get the parts at Smallbear do you don't pay shipping twice. I think Josh was out of matched FETs last I looked.

Thanks Jon... sounds about right. Not that there are that many parts in there anyway compared to some pedals.

Do you have any idea where I can send these guys for matched FETs? They need two pairs.

Smallbear sells matched pairs for phasers if josh is out. They'll be fine for this.

Make sure they don't cheap out on the vactrols. They must use the vtl5c1.

Thanks! I'm going to tell them just to buy the vactrols directly from Josh as he is still selling them. I have learned my lesson with the Nautilus on getting exactly the right vactrols for the job.
