Has anyone confirmed which three resistors per "channel" are supposed to be carbon composite instead of carbon film as in the rest of the pedal (please no discussion on the merits of that practice, I sincerely beg you!)?
If one has an insight on that and maybe could refer to actual component numbers in a respective schematic since they all vary ab bit (e.g. "RX/Y/Z in the mad bean-schematic"). I´ve seen some posts on that matter, but to me their supposed location in the circuit somehow doesn´t make much sense...

Many thanks in advance!

Why? Can't you bear to find out that there is no difference if you use other types of resistor? The only reason that CC types were used in some positions is that the original manufacturer had some of those values in CC in stock and wanted to get rid of them. He also thought that it would add to the bogus "mojo" value of what is - essentially - a copy of a Marshall Bluesbreaker pedal.

We boutique constructors sometimes use hard-to-find components for no other reason than to try to prevent exact copies of our products!

And all my begging remained unheard :cry:

Seriously, I hear you, but to me thats the cost of 0.90€ and the extra socketing... I´d call that rarely an effort, but I wanted to try and hear for myself... 0.90€ and a 1 minute of swapping to debunk a myth by experience, that would be the essence of DIY as far as I´m concerned...
So, once again: Anyone knows the exact resistors?

Almost all of the links in; Board index ‹ Stompbox Building ‹ Build-Your-Own-Boutique-Pedal < King of Tone; thread are dead. Does anyone have Madbeans Version 2 pcb toner transfer and layout files please?

The 10K after the drive and the 1K after the 2nd opamp directly in the signal path Are CC for added noise/mojo/aesthetics/ just because I can.... I've had a mad bean populated board on my bench for years someone traded me, I finally boxed it up last week. It's now happily boosting my 11R Vox model. Sounds really nice..

Does anyone know what the purpose of the two 1µF caps in parallel are at the end of the circuit (one film and one electrolytic)? Why not just use a 2.2µF?

Good question!
And 2,2uF seems a very large value, assuming the output is connected to a 1M impedance of the next stage.
Why not just use a 0,1uF film cap?

Hello,

At the pedalpcb there is only the pcb for sale. The documentation is not available.

Thank you for your help.

Doh! That's one of the ones that haven't been uploaded yet, my apologies. Stay tuned, it'll be posted shortly.
