The gain control serves a dual purpose— as the gain is increased, the ratio of gain-to-clean tone increases as well. This ensures that when the gain is rolled off, the tone never becomes muddy and unpleasant. You can control the amount of headroom and the character of the drive with the toggle switch. Choose from a more compressed, mid-range focused tone or an open, transparent, rhythm tone. The tone circuit is a powerful, two-band active EQ circuit capable of boosting or cutting the bass and treble frequencies up to 15dB for maximum versatility. The voltage is also boosted internally to 18V for increased clarity and headroom.</div></blockquote><br /><br />Here is said that it's a klone clone with some improvements...

I used to dislike Wampler pedals because I tried a few which i thought sounded truly awful - and still do. But then I tried a Ecstasy/Euphoria and I quite liked it. Now with the benefit of DIY I have tweaked it to suit me better and i really like it. Earth shattering? No, but it serves a purpose.<br /><br />I'm also not a fan of BJF - his pedals are stupidly expensive. But I have used the Honeybee as a starting point for a pedal of my own and it's one of my favourite overdrives. Stock I'm not super impressed but he has some clever ideas. But as a starting point for your own pedals they can be amazing. I recently (yesterday!) bought a One Control Strawberry Red overdrive and it sounds a LOT like my version of the HB. Designed by BJF and it's a really great pedal. It uses SMD I'm sure and it sounds really good.<br /><br />I have to agree about Catalinbread and Keeley - nothing of theirs does anything for me at all but I see no reason to start a thread about how crap they are. I suspect people here know what they do or don't like.<br /><br />I come from a background of tagboard amp building. I love building these old school amps and rate good layout and lead dress. But not everything can be built this way, both from a practical viewpoint and a sales viewpoint. I believe that being able to build something which sounds great regardless of method is a skill. Build a fab sounding pedal from SMD parts? That's some skill. And it seems it can be done.<br /><br /><br /> <a href="http://www.freestompboxes.org/viewtopic.php?f=20&t=28116">Read the main topic related to this post</a><hr /> Yesterday, 13:13 http://www.freestompboxes.org/viewtopic.php?f=20&t=28116#p264530 Digitech JamSync - How does it work? http://www.freestompboxes.org/viewtopic.php?f=1&t=26184#p264524 <br /> by calde (Posted 24 Jun 2017, 23:55)<br/><br /> Hi Nikogo, <br /><br />I am not so expert in electronics to help you with optical isolator. <br /><br />About the Midi out, I think that is safer disconnect the midi out connector of the BeatBuddy and change it in MIDI THRU.

All I did to increase the low end welly was increase the size of some of the electros - so the two on the left are now 10uF, as is the one on the top pins of the IC. The one on the level pot is 22uF. It has way more substance to it now.<br /><br />FWIW I am not expert or tech. I know very little about electronics.

I like the general tone, more overdrivey and less all-out fuzz. With 1µ the Fat control isn't doing that much for me, but I think that is due to the tone control, which cuts a lot of bass in general. I think I would have preferred a BMP style control or a simple treble cut here. Transistors are all BC550C. I'll also try a bigger feedback resistor for higher maximum gain, right now it's just a little bit lacking.<br /><br /><br /> <a href="http://www.freestompboxes.org/viewtopic.php?f=7&t=14396">Read the main topic related to this post</a><hr /> 23 Jun 2017, 18:09 http://www.freestompboxes.org/viewtopic.php?f=7&t=14396#p264493 Noisemaker Effects - Houston, we have a problem. http://www.freestompboxes.org/viewtopic.php?f=20&t=28438#p264484 <br /> by Professor SourTone (Posted 23 Jun 2017, 10:26)<br/><br /> Nearly always I've had a good experience ordering stuff online - even from the US (I am in the UK).<br /><br />Unfortunately my Noisemaker FX/Loveless purchase was not one of those.<br /><br />Bought one in Feb, still waiting for it.

As do most other switched-mode power supplies. I'd suggest trying out a few different power supplies before doing anything to the pedal itself. Your symptoms are most likely due to that one power supply and it's ripple effect.<br /><br />More power filter on the pedal end could help it a bit, but still. I'm fairly certain that this is only a power supply issue.<br /><br />On a side note, a friend of mine was planning to sell his Belle Epoch as defect unit due to similar whine. I told him to ditch the boss supply for cheapest harley benton power plant and the whine was gone. Not saying those are particularly good power supplies either. But one has worked for me for quite some time now.<br />+m<br /><br /><br /> <a href="http://www.freestompboxes.org/viewtopic.php?f=1&t=4473">Read the main topic related to this post</a><hr /> 22 Jun 2017, 17:56 http://www.freestompboxes.org/viewtopic.php?f=1&t=4473#p264462 Tech21 SansAmp PSA-1 PCB traces and schematics http://www.freestompboxes.org/viewtopic.php?f=7&t=25708#p264458 <br /> by Dirk_Hendrik (Posted 22 Jun 2017, 12:46)<br/><br /> And what happened!!!??
