Re: D*A*M - Professional Fuzz Sound

Does anyone know the name of the letter font on DAM Fuzz Sound? thanks Nevermind, I figured it out. It's this font: http://www.fontspace.com/rick-mueller/mama No, its not Well, I'm pretty sure it's the "Mama" font. Here's a picture of the dam fuzz sound: http://files.effectsdatabase.com/gear/pics/d...

Re: Lovepedal - Purple Plexi 800 [goop-alarm] [traced]

Hello all, I had the same problem with hiss at max gain (cf Renegadrian). Here is the solution I found: replace the 10 ohms resistor in series with the gain pot with a 22 ohms resistor (or put another 10 in series). It took care of it. If it is not enough, the value of the resistor can be pushed ev...

Possible idea for a super MOJO tube screamer

Don't know if anyone did this, but could tube diodes be used for clipping? I recently saw some subminiature double diode tubes for under a dollar, thought they might make a very BOUTIQUE tubescreamer. Do you think this could work? Actually, I know almost nothing about circuitry and I'm just asking i...

Re: EarthQuaker Devices - Hoof Fuzz

Are those high gain Germaniums? I thought you needed at least 300 hFe to make this circuit work well. You can use transistors with an HFE as low as 90 if you replace the ceramic cap between Q2 and Q3 with an electrolytic cap. That is the 'secret' to using low HFE transistors in a Big Muff circuit. ...

Re: EarthQuaker Devices - Hoof Fuzz

I was just checking out a demo of the Hoof and noticed that they are now using Russian germanium transistors. Looks like MP something. Maybe MP42? Just thought this was kind of cool. I love those Russian germaniums. Yeah those russian germs do sound good. My green muff with russian gt404g's and red...

Re: EarthQuaker Devices - Hoof Fuzz

I don't know if anyone in this thread has seen it, but somebody posted a hoof schematic on this thread:

And here's the schematic:

Re: EarthQuaker Devices - Hoof Fuzz

What did you use for q1 and q4? 2n5088 or 2n3904? I built a green muff using gt404g germs for q2 and q3, red LED's, and 2n5088 for q1 and q4. It sounds pretty hoofy. Do you think I should try to swap the 2n5088's for 2n3904's?

Re: Rockbox - Boiling Point [traced]

I checked soundclips of the pedal on youtube again. Mine sounds just like it should. I was just expecting much more from it since I saw the proguitrshop demo. :)

Re: Rockbox - Boiling Point [traced]

Finally i made it working. However on the boost mode, when i roll of gain to get a clean boost, output is very low and it still isn't completely clean. Is it how it should or should i check again for mistakes?

Re: Rockbox - Boiling Point [traced]

I made it using the vero layout, but i'm facing some problems. First, the boost mode has much more gain than the other two modes. Second, the bass switch isn't working. Has anyone got any ideas what may be the problem?

Re: Rockbox - Boiling Point [traced]

I'm building this pedal, but couldn't find a 4,99m resistor, so I bought a 5,1m instead. Will it make any difference? BTW i found a verified vero on sabrotone.com

Re: Rockbox - Boiling Point [traced]

Thanks for the PCB layout, Barcode. :D But I noticed that it slightly differs from the schematics posted on page 3 of this topic. Which is the real one?

Re: Rockbox - Boiling Point [traced]

So can anybody tell me if the vero layout is good? Since I've read that a lot of people got problems with it, and it isn't verified.
