Re: Report Forum problems here

Thanks a bunch, lads! I'm glad you're on it with fast actions.
Many a forum has disappeared, others are just being neglected by their mods and users.
It's good to know this one is still going strong and in capable hands.

Re: Report Forum problems here

Getting better all the time! Not much of a problem to report, but perhaps an accidental tic in the wrong box: the completed builds from the member's profile is listed beside every post. Perhaps this was always the case and I never noticed until I saw a lot of "air" below this post. https://www.frees...

Re: Boss Replacement Pots

If soul's pot doesn't work, you could always try contacting Roland / Boss directly.
They've been very helpful with replacement pots in the past for me.

Re: Bass cut = high pass filter question

My pickups are fairly low output, they're just a bit muddy on some amps. But that idea of a high pass with an inductor sounds good... I'll see if I can get a inductor It's not a matter of output, but of resonance. But I suppose you'll perceive a loss of some output that way as well, as with any pas...

Re: Bass cut = high pass filter question

It'll take a bit more work, but I'd like to suggest an LCR filter, such as Bill Lawrence Q-Tone. It will give you a much better guitar sound than a RC HPF. As some say, it's as if it takes windings off the pickup. The guitar still sounds like a proper guitar, but with lighter wound pickups. How much...

Re: PedalPCB: MOSFET DRIVER

Though labelled as "BIAS1" and "BIAS2" in the BOM and schematic, functionally, they're more like little gain pots for the individual MOSFET stages.
There is no right or wrong setting here, just set them wherever the pedal sounds good to you.

Re: 2020 forum updates - work in progress

Hello modman, great job on the improvements and updates so far! If possible, I have a little request for one of the next sets of updates.
Do you think that the time that is allowed to make changes to a post (edit a typo, change the title, replace attachments, etc.) could be extended a bit?

Re: Roland AP-2 Phase II (1975) specifically, the buffer. [schematic]

analogguru's redrawn schematic is nowhere to be found, so I found the full schematic, enhanced it a bit and redrew the bit with the buffer, keeping the components names and values from the original schematic intact. Or, so I thought... There are two C5 caps! The 10µF one should be C3, the 1µF one i...

Roland AP-2 Phase II (1975) specifically, the buffer. [schematic]

Hello chaps, Not to derail the Pete Cornish P-2 thread any further with talk about the AP-2 buffer, I thouht I'd take it to this thread. It all started with this post by analogguru. Particulary the last bit sounds very promising. Overall it can be expected that the "AP-2-Buffer" has: a higher input ...

Thanks, Chris. That's great news, indeed!
Do any component values have to be tweaked at all, or is it just a straight up swap?

Re: Mad Professor - Little Green Wonder

Old thread, new question. I'm thinking about modifying a TS type of pedal by giving it the tone control from the LGW. If I were to implement a tone control like this - dual ganged pot on two passive RC filters - would it matter if the wipers of the pot weren't connected to ground as they are in the ...

Re: Three passive one-knob tone controls

Ooh, I like the sounding when the knob is at 5 and 7,5 ! It's great to not only see the graphs but also how these circuits actually sound.

Your way with a fixed bass cut is a lot better than it was done in that schemo I found. It's as good as fixed anyway with those massive 10M and 11M resistors.
