Re: BBE - Windowpane

moved the gut shots into this thread Thanks for all the info. but please enlighten on the polarity of C8? "normally" the signal should pass through an electrolytic cap on the +/pos leg first then head "downstream" through the circuit from the -/neg leg of the cap. I've seen this a few times on vari...

Re: Effective, safe and lasting method against scratchy pots

Not a very attractive solution, considering how much the value of a vintage pedal is lost due to changed components. I get your point and it would be fine with a modern pedal. For the old one i would at least do my best to prolong good function of the old pots and am therefore wondering about the b...

Re: Univox - Superfuzz [schematic]

2N3904 tend to be too hot. 2N2222 works better. Gains in the 150 to 180 range, with Q4 and Q5 matched. If you can find 2N2219's, even better. matched pair for Q4 and Q5 cause more of the upper octave thing? I made one of these years ago, seems to work good but I would like to revisit this pedal and...

Re: Friedman BE-OD Pedal [traced]

https://www.pedalpcb.com/product/thermionic-deluxe/ Yep, saw that yesterday and got on the email notification. Curious if the channels are going to be identical, or if one channel will be lower gain like the original. Would be cool to have the option of two BE circuits, or two DS, OR one DS/one BE....

Re: Friedman BE-OD Pedal [traced]

I made one of these with a pcb I did on OSHPARK and it is not noisy at all... pedal rocks in fact. No oscillation at all and I am using the 1N5817 diodes all the way around, red LEDS. Was using it today thru a Mesa Lonestar classic and it gets that nice krang thing going :applause: Tossed a clone of...

So can the MA856 replaced by the MPSA18 base-emitter diode.

That's awesome!
Save your money and go the base-emitter route of MPSA18s

Re: Analogman - King of Tone [traced]

which diodes are you referring to? The Ma856s? Because the 1s1588 were changed to 1n914s by Analogman himself. I built my clone with Ma858s and 1s1588 but socketed them, but haven't gotten around to actually A/Bing them myself with common replacements. From pedalhackers site, and I cannot say if th...

Those magical diodes can be found again and my big question is do they really make a difference in this thing? I made a clone of this and still need to figure out the best settings with those dip switches LOL
