Re: Crybaby 95Q automatic, no sound with guitar but with fin

Only way to get it again, unplug the jack, plug again, fuzz sound for 3 s and stop. You've just build yourself a timer! Bravo! :horsey: I would try some audioprobing, but you may have a blown opamp in the IC? Now for the 3s stuff, does it happen as well when the pedal is used with a wall wart power...

Re: Crybaby 95Q automatic, no sound with guitar but with fin

I tried to solder again some components like the transistors or opamp, and now I don't have sound with my fingers :lol: But when i plug the jack, I can hear the pedal for 3s and it sound like a FUZZ pedal and the sound stop. Only way to get it again, unplug the jack, plug again, fuzz sound for 3 s a...

Hi, I'm actually trying to adapt the preamp of an old Orange GRO amp to a pedal. I've read the book of indyguitarist and also check differents pedals schematic (like the Catalinbread series modeling amps). I did approximatively half of the pedal, but before continue I've some crazy oscillation happe...

Re: Nordstrand - 3b preamp [traced]

Perfect! Just showed the schematic to a friend that wanted a preamp for his bass and he just told me (I don't know if it's wrong or true) but I prefer tell you ”just in case”: There is a mistake in the schematic, nothing bad, pin 5(+) of ic4b don't have to be connected to pin 1 from ic3a but to pin ...

little bear r.attack - RAT copy

Hi, I would like to know how the pedal can switch between 3 different clipping with only a SPDT. Apparently there is 3 1N4148 for Vintage (unusual for a standard rat), 2 1N60 for dirty and 2 Red Led for Turbo https://images.reverb.com/image/upload/s--jbDRuS3_--/a_exif,c_limit,e_unsharp_mask:80,f_aut...

Re: Tech 21 - Bass Driver DI [schematic]

Someone know how the parrallel output is wired on the pedal? I would like add it on the programmable bass drive that doesn't have this output. From what I see, it looks like that the jack seems simply connected to the input... But there is maybe more. https://www.harmonycentral.com/images/uploads/ba...

Friedman Gold 72 Wah

I listened some demos, seems to be a very nice wah! Find some "guts", wah pot is B100K Alpha, capacitors and resistors looks basic ones like the ones Tayda sells. https://img.digimart.net/prdimg/m/0d/14dac607eb0b90437dd2322e3e517be82f748e.jpg https://img.digimart.net/prdimg/m/cd/ddf4c1511da828671011...

Re: Earthquaker Devices - Ghost Echo [traced]

I made the "Perf and PCB" layout. Found that Depth 1 and 3 are reversed, and I compared to the original and I think it's less punchy, a bit less volume. Possibly, I will check values during the week on the original and came back if I found something different that the schematic made actually.
