Re: Wampler Velvet Fuzz [traced]

i think OK1 has to be mirrored, isnt the Collector Emitter path placed in the wrong direction?

Re: Vox Lil Night Train - Guts - possible FireFly derivative

i would say:pre amp stage like NT-15, phase splitter and a fitted 12AU7 push pull output stage.

Re: Fuzzhugger: Ab-Synth

hi there, i spend a little bit of time for this weird stompbox. I dont know, if R6 is in the right position, this is the resistor from pin 1 to pin 3 on the fuzz pot. Also i dont get it out of the pictures, which cap is 10 uF and which is the other on,but a little swap would give the answer :). Can ...

Re: EH - English Muffin [schematic]

thanks for the help. i was thinking about the "connect the transformer in reverse as usual" but i thought, there would be a easier way, like the power boost from one of the submini amps like the murder one. but i'll try it with a little print transformer.

Re: EH - English Muffin [schematic]

hey there,

can someone help me with the high voltage supply. In the schematic there is a transformer, but i cant find one which would match (1:14 or something like this ).

Also i was thinking about a voltage supply like the Nixie Supply. Would it be a solution that will work well?

Framus bass parts

Hi, my grandma gave me an old e-bass from my uncle, but the neck is cracked, so i think i dont get this instrument in one part away. It looks for me like an old 70's bass, maybe the single coil pickups are rare, i dont know, i cant test them, because of his horroble condition. I have made some photo...

Re: Mxr - Blue Box

Re: Zvex - Nano Head

hi, thanks for your help! the sound is more whining, but in some switch positions also humming. the frequency changes when i get contact to some capacitors, especially the capasitors on the high and low end switches, also when i have the tubes unshielded. The Nano head is built in a 8 inch speaker c...

Re: Zvex - Nano Head

HI, i finished my ecc81 /12at7 nano head and it works with a huge problem. there is always a noise like in the fuzz factory, the frequency of this noise is changing with switching of the treble, bass and brightness switches or turning the gain pot. so i measured the alternate voltage first ... 80 mV...

Re: "Murder One" Submini Tube Guitar Amplifier

the output transformer is a simple hammond 125 A, if you google, youre getting enough sites to buy one of them. I bought one for me for 20 euros.

Re: Zvex - Nano Head

Hi,

i heard the ECC 81 tubes should fit ... is this right? I dont get 6021W tubes really easy, and for me its not so important that the tubes are sub mini type. So what you are thinking about this?
