Blackface Fender Princeton Problem

Hi, I have a problem with my 67 Blackface Princeton. It works but is very quiet, like speaking volume. Still breaks up when up to 10. I have tried replacing the rectifier valve with no effect and 1 6v6 which I think made it very slightly louder (I only have 1 extra 6v6 at the moment) I am yet to swa...

Re: Fulltone - OCD [traced]

Hi all,

I have built the OCD based on the vero layout above.

The sound is very distorted and when the drive is turned up at all it starts to oscillate and go mad!

Any ideas what ive done wrong?

Cheers

Re: Zvex - Woolly Mammoth [traced]

Hi,

Ive just finished my second Woolly Mammoth from the Fuzzy elephant layout, the first for a friend worked great.

This 2nd one works but the 'wool' pot has no effect at all on the sound!

Can anyone help me?!

Thanks

Re:

Re: Zvex - SHO (Super Hard On) [traced]

Hi, I’ve made a good few SHOs now, it a great pedal! A couple of questions; The first SHO I made was great worked and sounded great. The second I made popped like crazy whenever you hit the switch and I couldn’t fix this so I just ditched the board and started again! (I had tested the pedal with the...
