MXR - Fullbore Metal [guts]

Postby ddpawel » 18 Oct 2010, 15:56

Hi,
I have something interesting, as everyone waited for some time. Photos of MXR Fullbore Metal. I'd have more, trace the path and made a schematics, but unfortunately my friend sold his brilliant effect (stupid ...). Maybe someone has a few photos, from which we could learn something. Or partially trace this.

I don't like smd too. But we should try to do schematics from the pictures and then ... build greater version without smd.

The pictures are too rough to trace. Try using macro mode on your camera

There is nothing wrong with SMD in my book, they have crammed a lot into this lil'ole pedal, i'd be interested is seeing the tone stack/scoops etc. Thanks for the pics
I was playing what I way hearing, but I wasn't hearing what I was playing.

I think all hate SMD because that nearly impossible to repair . Big crappy compagny espacially for that (broken ? go buy another one) .

Anyways, the fz2 is nice (I have one) but quickly boring , not really useable like a "main" fuzz pédal (expect if you play in "fu manchu" :lol: )

Just picked up this pedal and love it. Want to learn more about how it works but, I'm so not surprised the schematic is not readily found on dem internetz. This pedal does what it does very well. I would love to see some more control over the scoop, maybe a q adjustment. I have to say, for $50, I can't say I'm disappointed.
