Boosted Boneyard II
« on: January 10, 2014, 10:14:41 PM »
Here is a Boneyard II with a AMZ mosFET boost stuck in front of it. This was built for a guy who loved the high-gain side of the original BY and wanted an "even more" option.
I changed a couple values on the pcb back to the original boneyard and used a 500k pot for the gain. This with the AMZ boost pushing it is just ridiculous (in a good way). I just love the mighty boneyard!
Went for a simple yet functional etched top plate on rough sanded aluminum. I left some of the toner on the copper clad for a really cool distressed look. I like it.

No just a copper-clad etch. I just left some toner on instead of sanding it all off clean.
