Re: Earthquaker Devices Bit Commander [traced]

Just bought the pedal. Anyone at all interested in gutshots?

What I remember seeing in there is a transformer, two LM386s and some other cool stuff.

Can anyone build me a really simple circuit?

I wasn't too sure where I could post this, but I need someone to build me a voltage divider in a 1590A or 1590H enclosure that steps down an 18v outlet from my Voodoo Lab ISO-5 to 9v. Unfinished, just DC jacks. I'm away from home for the next year and have none of my soldering equipment and power to...

High gain transistors in an overdrive remind me of this.
I wouldn't say it's too far off from Martin's Folk Driver in basic design. It definitely does have that "chewy" discrete sound.

Re: Earthquaker Devices Chrysalis Overdrive [traced]

I'll try and get some trace side pics around Wednesday. It's on my practice board right now but I should be free to take it off and open it up sometime later this week.

Second row:
.001uf

The overdrive sounds great, reasonably priced, and well built. Would love to figure out what goes on in this one!

Re: Aquaboy ver.2 - Aqua Puss board ordering info and document [verified]

Thanks for the pics, Dan! I'm beginning to think the chip I have might just be a relabled MN3008. I guess I'll find out when my other MN3005 comes in.

Merry Christmas!

Re: Aquaboy ver.2 - Aqua Puss board ordering info and document [verified]

I checked my chip again, and the picture just doesn't show it, but the bottom is marked with "2A" in a diagonal pattern. Everything says that this chip is legit except the delay time. Do MN3008 look the same as MN3005 minus the functionality and stamp?

Re: Aquaboy ver.2 - Aqua Puss board ordering info and document [verified]

Just checked the values Scruffie posted. Everything is as it should be. Ordered a new chip to try, but could it be anything other than the chip? The one I have seems legit and now UTSource is saying the MN3005 should be legit, so I'm not sure what to believe

Re: Aquaboy ver.2 - Aqua Puss board ordering info and document [verified]

Is there any other reason why my delay time might be short? I just want to be sure before I drop another thirty on a MN3005

Re: Aquaboy ver.2 - Aqua Puss board ordering info and document [verified]

Just finished, and it works. However, I'm pretty sure I have a fake MN3005. I biased it as best I could (spent about an hour getting it right) and compared delay times with my MN3205 original Boss DM-2, and the Aquaboy's max delay time is nowhere close the DM-2's. I'd say about 2/3 the time of my D...

Might be reliable. Synth part shop in MA, only selling two, which might be a good sign.

Re: Boss - DS-1 Distortion mods (what works, what doesn't?)

So I did the phlat mod, and it's way too trebly for my tastes. I really like the new midrange and drive characteristics though.

Is there anyway to pump up bass and darken the tone?
