New (old) Fatpants Build >
« on: November 28, 2010, 09:58:25 PM »
Here's one I just finished --- I had populated an older V1 Fatpants board but never housed it so I decided to box it up today.  For this build, I rigged up an SPDT on-off-on switch to swap different values for C3 --- a 22n, a 10n and NO cap (center off position).  In the up position, the switch adds some 'crispy' high end; in the middle (no cap) there is no high end added and, in the down position, the 10n gives a nice 'in between' setting . . . a little presence added without being too harsh.

Finally got the pedal housed today; the finish is burnt orange translucent metal flake powdercoat.  I also used one of the clear shaft pots from Mouser and rigged up a bright blue LED in the shaft . . . and it actually works, lol.  I'll have to try one of the V2 boards next.
