Collosalus 2022
« on: July 10, 2022, 12:29:48 PM »
Finish this one up this weekend.  Sounds great and noise free.  8)  I'm going to have to incorporate some 18V power into my pedal board with all the new awesome projects coming out, recently. I goofed putting in the foot switch and got some wires crossed, which is why there is that weird wire.  I had to do some surgery in the box to flip the output and LED wires.  :P

When I did the set up I used my DMM  to set the clock. I got 30kHz on the low end of the manual knob and 1MHz on the high. But when I played it there was a bit to much sproing on the low end of the sweep, so, I adjusted by ear and wound up at 45kHz, but that was too dead.  So I split the difference and set it to 38kHz. My point here is that setting the clock requires some tweaking.  ;D

I recycled my ~2018 Collosaulus graphic for this version.  Enclosure is no-film on a Tayda powder coat.

Look sick John. The enclosure is so vibrant and in your classic style. Build is looking fantastic inside as always. How do you like it to your prior collosulus? I built the old version and liked it. Wanda approved build.

Beautiful work! The type and graphics work really well here. Tidy guts (as always)! Looks like you spilled a bit of gold around IC2.

Thanks guys!

How do you like it to your prior collosulus?
I dig the original.  I actually, bought a second board a while back but  I ran into some trouble with the build so I abandoned it.  It was nice to have it for this, since I had all the chips ready to pick.  If you are asking if you should build this one having the other, I'd say only if you have noise issues with the charge pump.  If you were building your first, this one is the clear winner.  The layout is improved and mounts a lot better on the 16mm pots.  In my original I added some foam to support the board on the 9mms.

Looks like you spilled a bit of gold around IC2.
;D I think that's just a weird reflection.

That's a damn good looking build right there.
