Mammoth (Madbean's Sabretooth) & Black Russian Big Muff
« on: June 25, 2013, 03:12:21 PM »
Mammoth build using the Madbean's Sabretooth etchable pcb
Really nice sound fuzz, tested both with guitar and bass

Trinity Feedbacker build using my personal layout (here's the thread: http://www.madbeanpedals.com/forum/index.php?topic=8392.0 )
I've found that the Tone pot wiring is inverted (1, 2, 3 in place of 3, 2, 1...)
I've jumpered the 39k resistor and used a 10K B pot for the Mids... it seems much more usable!

Man, those are beautiful inside and out!
Pedal building is like the opposite of sex.  All the fun stuff happens before you get in the box.

Big Muff with only two trannies or am I going blind?

Nah, I'm pretty sure there's four... but the low contrast makes it pretty hard to see 2-3 of them. 
Tight layout, too.

Also, those both look fantastic.  Well done.

I was thinking the same thing.. I do not see them either.. I wonder...

I really like the graphics on these. Great job.

Yeah, a bit of zooming in and squinting shows them, the black transistor cases just don't show up well against capacitor shadows and naturally dark PCB tracks.

4 transistors as usual!  ;D
I've drawn this pcb layout to fit easily inside a 1590A (leaving space for the jacks too)...
so in a 125A there's plenty of room!
You can find my etchable layout in the link, if you wanna build a little (really little) monster... I suggest you to do the Feedback mod... it's crazy but really playable!
