Re: Vertex NOS Axis Wah - De-gooped - [Traced] [traced]

The ONLY difference between the BBE and the Vertex NOS versions: 1. The Wah Pots 2. The BBE model I had, has carbon film resistors.

Re: Germanium Diode Options

They are only slightly less common than 1n34a. Both are more common that 1n270 in my experience. !n34a and 1n60 are pretty interchangeable. Small Bear has them of course. They can all pop up on websites. Tayda has them but it is a good chance they are merely workalikes. mklec is a new vendor. http:/...

Re: question about effects schematics and internet

Re: Clipping Diodes

Re: Electro Harmonix Soul Food [schematic]

That gain pot is dual ganged. There seems to be a quality problem with the posts being easy to separate from the pots (from TGP). Still might be a good deal if you need to pimp out the pots.

Re: ancient prophet boost/od/dist/fuzz
