Re: Bearfoot Honey Bee [traced]

Compare those "different" values with the BJFE's (Yellow Shark schematic) and their function/behavior in the circuit. I didn't bother with most of them for a reason. I had initially included "R9" as different but, as was later discovered, it is the same value (147K/150K) in the BJFE Honey Bee that w...

Re: BJFE - SBEQ [Tracer's Fund] [traced]

Well, I'm still getting some distortion. Getting 0v on G did not really chance the sound of anything. Its still clipping. :scratch: When I had the pedal in my possession, it distorted with a P90 neck pickup and forceful playing. In my opinion, the distortion wasn't particularly pleasing. Try feedin...

You shouldn't have 4.1V at the gate of Q1.

Re: Way Huge - Pork Loin [traced]

The stages are just arranged differently superficially. They are the same except that, as drawn, R30 (equivalent to R13) is shorted. That's probably an error.

Re: Blackout Effectors Mantra [traced]

It's not superfluous, just as there will be a DC voltage at the gate of Q1, so will there be at the gate of Q2.

Re: Rothwell - Love Squeeze Compressor [traced]

The posted schematic comes from a unit exactly like that. The LEDs and 5k1 resistor are on the potentiometer board.

Re: Bearfoot Honey Bee [traced]

Don't know why that schematic is in here.

You don't need to cut any traces. Take a lead from the resistor and a lead from the capacitor and twist/solder them together, then install the resulting component as normal, using the free leads.

It's not a circuit i'm that interested in cloning, given that my Marshall Supervibe sounds exactly the same, but i'm still curious.
It's the SMD IC next to the BL3207, T(HAT)4513.

Re: Rothwell - Love Squeeze Compressor [traced]

There's nothing to sort out. The distortion was observed while using the real Rothwell Love Squeeze that the schematic was traced from. Your pedal may be a newer revision having changes to reduce/eliminate that distortion.

Post pictures and we'll find out.

Re: Freekish Blues- Alpha Drive

Anyway, joking aside, if I hurt your feelings, I apologize. My sentiment remains, though. I think that the instructions are very straightforward and even the inexperienced should be able to comprehend them with some effort. I'd rather have you call me a douchebag than spoon-feed you.

Yes, that's what Skreddy asked and I answered. TopBoost seems to be asking a different question, read the last couple of posts.
