Sushi box Blackeye
« on: January 30, 2023, 10:15:15 AM »
Where to start with this oneÖ. Itís an infamous project, but for inherent flaws and problems it has just as many positives and good qualities,  Of course if I was going to build a tube preamp I wanted the full complement tone stack so I tried to emulate the  the SLO tone pre amp in its entirety the best that I could,  I find the gain range quite useable all the way to dimedÖ this one is worth revisiting in a different format for sure.

This circuit may not have been exactly as advertised but, your execution and the build itself is top notch.
The kind of guy who sticks a fork in his Dr. Pepper... If you know what I mean.

Pedal building is like the opposite of sex.  All the fun stuff happens before you get in the box.

Wow! I love what you did. A full eq section would be on my wish list for this too.
I got ripped off on 4 of these. It's nice to see someone get one working.

Thanks yíall!   For what itís worth I named it the SLO Scrofa because sus scrofa is a wild boar and this thing has a squealing problem . If anyone whatís to know by adding the TMB tone stack you can actually dial out the squeal with the Mids  pretty quickly even without a buffer.  Not that itís a fix just an interesting discovery

This one is sooo cool, even with the flawed layout by sushibox. The build, the concept and execution is top tier and the color scheme is fantastic.

I'm not familiar with the build, but is that interior LED lighting to go with the cutouts‽ Very cool.

Iím not on what you are asking but yes? Itís just the indicator led(s) flooding the inside. To backlight the tubes
