I've ordered the LDRs posted above, and now I'm searching some 2M dark... LDRs are pretty cheap, so the experimentation is really funny :applause:

Re: Lovetone - Meatball [traced]

Hi, after a bad experience with my first Meatsphere (equipped with VTL5C3), I've bought a second PCB... This time I wanna use LDR+5mm diffuse green LEDs. These LDRs are good or not? http://www.ebay.it/itm/10PCS-LDR-Photoconductive-cell-1k-5528-Photo-resistenza-arduino-compatibile-/151352412368?pt=Co...

This PCB is out of stock from several months:

If anyone has a spare, I'm interested to buy it. PM me :lol:

Re: BAJA Sagittarian Charger (mini KLON)

Just found some OA-5 black glass diodes from the '50s...
http://www.radiomuseum.org/tubes/tube_oa5.html

Their V-drop is just perfect for a good Klon-e :horsey:

Also, I own about 100 OA-95, but the range is from 0.60mV to 0.72mV, just too high for a Klon, or not?

Re: D*A*M - Head Buzz

thank you beedotman... I've solved changing the crap fuzz pot with a fresh Alpha 1kB :popcorn: Why You're using three caps in parallel?! It affects sound in wrong way. Use just one, 0.68uF should be enough for fuzz face. I've bought and soldered a 2,2uF radial and ordered some NOS 2,2uF axial ;) Wha...

Re: D*A*M - Head Buzz

Just a question... I've built two times a PNP Head Buzz based on the last layout posted by Sinner, flipping the 22uF, soldering three 0,68uF in parallel for the input cap and mounting a trimpot on Q2 collector. I've tested various transistor (both Si and Ge), but the voltages on Q2 are pretty strang...

I could correct it, but I'm afraid of Tim's head buzz ;)

Also I decided to stop digging in direct DAM replicas after last year scam issues. I moved them all from my website and I would do it here as well, but let's just say, I don't know how ;)
No problem man :thumbsup

Re: Lovetone - Meatball [traced]

Thirdly, I was working off two very similar schematics - One which didn't have the colour pot lug 1 clearly connected to the output of the second opamp in the envelope section, and neither of which had the colour pot lugs 2+3 connected. This seems to be known as the "colour mod" online, b...

Thanks man... So, with a Cornish buffer placed in front of a slightly modded Light Drive, we have a fully ODR-2... great! :lol:

Re: Skrydstrup R&D - Overdrive ODR2

Hi guys. I've just tested this effect based on the schematic that I drawn for the Light Drive. Only difference between my schematic and this one is that I don't use buffer, and I have vol control after the recovery stage and I have shortened Sustain pot by the 4.7nF capacitor. I will post my schema...

Thanks to all for the replies... :thumbsup How many do you need and what colour powder coating do you want ? I have powder coating equipment and depending what your looking for I might be able to do them for you. I need some 125B (3,4,5 pieces... I'm not sure on quantities), preferably swirled or ha...
