And Another: The Shortstack
« on: August 18, 2012, 09:32:49 PM »
I've decided to slowly start boxing up all of the working circuits I have lying around. This is the Shortstack circuit from jtn191's last run. You'll notice I left the diodes out of the circuit but socketed the pads for the Bluesberry mod. As with the Crowther Hotcake, I prefer the non-Bluesberry variation. I've owned a couple of the originals and this one sounds dead-on based on my memory; perfect with my AC15!

For now, it has a TL071 like the current Hotcake units, though I'm sure I'll try out a ua741 mojo can IC and a NE5534 for experimentation. Sorry, it's not much to look at and my shoddy photography could stand some improvement. I just can't bring myself to do the waterslide decals...yet.

On the bright side, I took more time with the wiring than usual and think it turned out relatively well. It's certainly my best wiring job to date.

Thanks.  No, this is jtn191's recent layout.  I'm still a little intimidated by EAGLE, playing around with DIY Layout Creator for now.

nice man! lots of room left.
I'm almost sure I just got the diodes flipped around...will test it out.
My first hotcake had pretty clean wiring too. Must be how the stock one was all small and white, clean and bright like
