Re: Automatic volume control after POD

What about a limiter? It would give you some dinamics before reach the limit.

Re: Peavey Triple XXX and the evil Tone-Stack

95H First I suggest you to use a tubescreamer or another overdrive in the dirt channels, usually it give better dirt tones. If you did but it was not enough, I suggest you to remove C8, the capacitor that bypasses R10 to reduce the gain and brightness. If it isn't enough you can reduce r21 and r17 b...

Re: The Beatdown: A True MIAB

Ripthorn It sounds really amazing! When I tried to breadboard some guitar preamps I never get close to the tone of that as real preamps connected direct to the power amp when i connect it in another preamp tube or SS, It sounds a little better when I change the tonestack to baxandall or big muff sty...

Re: More volume on BBE Green Screamer

You can increase a little by increasing VR3 to 100k or 1M but if you want much more volume you have to implement one booster between C9 and VR3.

Re: Solo Dallas - SVDS Replica [traced]

madras, Great job!!!

There is some components in that circuit that does not affect the tone like l1, LM117, D1, D2, C34, R14, R15, C27, C31, C32, the LM380 does a little overdrive but is almost irrelevant.

Re: SoloDallas - Storm

It's a modified Flatline Compressor Very similar, although SoloDallas says that they traced the optical portion from part of the original SVDS which would have been 1976. Not sure whether or how much this portion of the circuit was adapted for pedal use, but optical compressors go back to the 1950s...

Re: Easy Vibe Optocoupler

spoontex The short answer is a flashing yes! We usually prefer a combo led + ldr because it is cheaper them its rich cousin and there is no considerable tone differences IN A EASYVIBE. Optocouplers NSL32 are led/ldr combos but they are "matched", they have closer characteristics if you compare an NS...

Re: Baja Active EMG Schematic

Yes, it'll work perfectly! An option something better is to use an schottky diode, anyone. There is a little voltage drop (aprox. 0,6v) when 1N4148 is used in this way, it does not affect your tone when the battery is fully charged. Another good Idea is to use it in parallel as it is used in pedals.

This diode does nothing to the signal, it is only reverse power flow protection so you can use anyone.

Re: Solo Dallas - SVDS Replica [traced]

Those diodes are just for protection and the l1 is used to avoid noise from the power supply.

As your circuit has clipping diodes, does it simulate "sag" of a power amp at loud volumes?

Great job caspercody I cloned the older version, something that looks strange for me in the schematic below is that the gate of the fet 2N5484 (pin 3) should be connected to R30 and the remaining terminal to r22 as the earlier decimator, if there is a little noise when you s a diode between r30 and ...

Did you tried to increase R1 a little? I suggest R1 100k and reduce C1 to 220pf.

Re: idea for a new mod in the guvnor 2

marushio_rima What result do you intend to do? When you reduce c22 you probably had recovered some highs what is almost ok becouse the stock pedal sounds a little dark imho. Be carefull increasing the C8, C12 and C13 because they are in the direct signal path, if you want to use it as a low gain ove...
