I got it as a Patreon reward, but they're selling it with pots now. They should be on the same page as the Eagle files are being sold.

It came with a separate charge pump board to increase power AFTER the switching section. A person who bought a fully assembled one showed me the same for his. Mine didn't come with instructions. The other pedal owner and I looked at the Eagle files to figure this out. It will make sense when you highlight the paths.

9v goes in where marked on the board on TOP, but if you want to send the rest of the circuit more power, DON'T jumper "jump". Instead send the 9v out via "PWR" on the bottom and back to the "3x" pad. Or just jumper and stick to 9v if you don't care.

Hello!

The eagle files are no longer available. Can someone please post the schematics for the rocket eq pedal and the bumblebee compressor/swell pedal?

Or if the eagle files are somehow available again, I will gladly purchase them from the man himself.

Thanks in advance!

I guess the issue with trying to build a Klein Bottle now is that it requires programmed chips. Does anyone know how to program PIC12F509 for the Klein Bottle project? With VFE closing shop it would suck for this project to disappear.

Devoured Deth,

Would you mind sharing the schematics? The Eagle purchasing link no longer works. Thanks!

MadBeanPedals has a lot of VFE projects already, you can find them on the bottom of this page in this link.

Peter is closing down VFE for very understandable reasons.
Let's be thankful for all that he has done and hope everything will work out for his family.

Just my personal insight, it’s sad to see Peter shutting down. I own a Standout, another Standout with charge pump, a Dragon and Pinball pedals. They are all great. I use the Regular Standout with high gain amps to tighten it up for a different sound and use the charge pump Standout with a stock JMP to really drive the front end.

The standout is a high pass and low pass filter in series with a clean blend, pretty simple (but well executed). I'm sure the circuit will live on under some guise
