D*A*M Fly! and a One In, Four Out (Pirate Edition)
« on: June 01, 2013, 01:06:13 AM »
The D*A*M GB-83, easy fit in a 1590A.
Etch is of an Australian March Fly, Tabanidae (aka Horse Fly)- life size!
These ones drink blood!... really, Oz fearers, it's just a little sting... ;)



I added 22K to the 330K for a hotter Q1 bias-  My layout:



Please use it- all I ask is that you post your finished build here.  ;)



Though etching really is binary, I'm using and old school dot matrix (like old newspaper pics used to be) to create the illusion of greys...



Here's a buffer for One in, Four outs.
It's spanky clean and sounds very nice. It's based on a design I found in the "1 in 3 out" thread at BYOC, but I had to add an extra IC for 4 outs. (I used a TL074 & T071)

The artist in question is locally known as "Pirate Steve" (yes, like in Dodgeball...), hence the Jolly Roger.





And the layout, should you too wish to haul 4 amps to every gig too... :-\

Awesome per the usual!

We've got plenty of those horse flies in the U.S. midwest, especially around lakes. They are vicious buggers. Their bite takes a nice size chunk of meat with it. Going under water with one on your back does nothing. I had one stay with me for 15+ seconds once. Those mechanized war machines are very hard to kill.

Amen to that. I had to contend with these bastards growing up in coastal NC as well. True enough, a bit does leave a visible hole in your flesh. And they will ride your back under water and bit you even if fully submersed. Even in salt water.  :o

2 on the under water thing! I've smacked one hard with a flip flop and I swear it looked at with the stink eye and just got pissed! I went in the house at that point.

Last year one came in my garage while I was soldering and f'd with me literally for an hour. It finally bit me in the rib cage out in my yard....yes it followed me around the freakin yard!
