My first build - GreenBean2019
« on: February 18, 2021, 10:22:32 PM »
Itís alive!!
I had to sub a film cap for a ceramic, but it sounds fine as far as I can tell on my little test bench amp plucking a few strings.

Nice!  It will be the first build of many, Iím sure.

I have a bazz fuzz from diyguitarpedals Iím waiting for that to come in since Jan. 30th and 5 more MBP sitting here, 2 with all the parts and 3 waiting.

Vfe the triplet, triumvirate and alpha dog.
The impv2 and snarkdoodle.

Had to sub a few things here and there, but seems from this pedal I did ok ok that, except I had to sub a 1/4w in place of a 1/8w... really hoping that doesnít bite me in the end as far as space and functionality.

Having a blast though, boxing this one in a lawn green 125b from tayda tomorrow hopefully, Iíve got a amp cab build going using a set of older stereo speakers that are 8Ohm 10Ē. Also hoping that works out since I ordered a joyo zombie and donít know where to start building my own amp just yet... much less which to pick other than what features Iíd want.

I know for sure Iíd want a amp head that has:
Mid high low knobs
Tube driven
Old school peg board
2 channels
Pedal friendly
Easy to source and rather cheap parts where possible
Maybe easy to follow directions

Excellent! Looking good. It's a fun hobby to get into.

It's no big deal, just put them in with one side standing a little. You can basically make a right triangle with the resistor itself being the hypotenuse and it won't stick up any higher than an IC in a socket, or a decent sized electrolytic cap. I've done it plenty of times. Just take care to make sure that none of the exposed leads are touching.

Lots of older electronics have resistors that just stand straight up and one lead just curves back down, it doesn't matter as long as they aren't making contact with anything.

I'll keep that in mind, especially if the 1/8w next to the sub can't be moved over a tiny bit to squeeze in.

Thank you all for the comments, I really thought I was going to botch this bad even though I have hand tool experience. 😂
Now all it needs is a sick graphic, labels and Modded TS-808 on it, waiting on bean to let me know if I can use the bean image from here and link a PSD if he would.

This one without the star part I think would say exactly GreenBean. ;D
