How about a 1590LB build
« on: April 08, 2021, 04:12:10 PM »
This is the oxygen amp from Quantum FX. In this version, Felix takes masochism to a whole new level. This is the last of the three I have finished. I got this one only 2 years ago.

This made my fingers hurt. The contortion is strong with this one.

Seems like a build for low profile electrolytics.  With a monster 200V thrown in just for fun 8)
The only known cure in the world for GAS is death.  That's my story, and I'm sticking to it.

I get a nervous tik just looking at that.  Well played Jimi but methinks you have much more patience that I ever will.  Stuffage is not my strong suit.

I don't like 1590LBs because I can't fit my usual 27 knobs and switches on them.

Great work Jimi! You should do a whole board of these with an OSHA hazard label theme!

nice work. good to see someone is building these!
And yes, low profile electros would have made things easier. I do remember that there is a circuit to increase voltage on the board, so there are actually some capacitors with higher voltage...
I build pedals to hide my lousy playing.
