Maybe a PtP?
« on: April 12, 2012, 10:17:50 PM »
A classic case of the tail wagging the dog ...

I finished this enclosure with the intention of putting a Formula 5 in it, but the way it turned out I'm tempted to fill it with a PtP, ridiculously oversized capacitors circuit.

Any suggestions, or should I just stick the circuit board in there?

ridiculously oversized capacitors is the way to go!!! A turretboard would look so good in that enclosure!

PTP is my vote.

You need a turretboard MKII or something in there! Did you get this from Pedal Enclosures? How are they to order from?

It's a snipped-up aluminum plate with some scrap tolex and piping. When I went to Mojotone a couple weeks ago I got treated to a shop tour and snagged some 'garbage.'

The PedalEnclosures box is the Cadillac Escalade of aluminum project boxes. When you feel the heated leather seat caress your rear end, you'll know where that extra money went. Seriously, the quality inside and out gives the impression it's indestructible. Shipping was only a few days, too.

Any more recommendations for specific PtP builds?

+1 on the tonebender suggestion, or pretty much any ge fuzz.  Maybe a superbee.  Yeah.  Superbee.  I would breadboard a few ge fuzzes until you hear something you can't live without.

I have made two orders from pedal enclosures the last month and I highly recommend them. Mike is a super-nice guy and ships fast! enclosures may be a more expensive than the common hammond but when you build an awesome fuzz, tonebender or other "vintage" circuit they are the way to!!

That is one old school looking box!! There's a lot of old fuzz circuits that can easily be done Ptp or turretboard style. What kind are you into or looking for?

I just got a Cosmopolitan board from Haberdasher and I'm pretty excited about that one, so I'm leaning that way. I'm pretty sure this box is destined for a fuzz, though. After watching some Tonebender demos, I liked the basic Sola Sound MKII the best, but the Cosmo/Screwdriver videos sound like something I'd use more often.

In the meantime I thought I'd go ahead and put the No. 5 in there. It looks freakin' awesome with the jewel light on, but the board was my first fabbed design and didn't work very well, so it's about to get cut out of there.

I'd put a mojo mk2 in there too a la DAM. Built on perf with OC75 and shielded wire :)

Magic, these builds are pure art on the inside. It sure is a lot of work and a pain in the a.. to bias. Very inspiring!

Thanks, Wizz! That's just what I've not been able to find in two days of searching.

Do you have any links to a schematic/layout for that stuff?
