Re: Terminal Fuzz Rev 1 - 2013 Guts EQ-D

Awesome. Can you tell what middle lug of the Voice pot is connected to? It's definitely a modded Shin Ei Companion Fuzz, btw. Mods being a pre-gain control (Fuzz pot), the Voice pot tweaking the tone stack, and an added gain recovery stage.

Re: Terminal Fuzz Rev 1 - 2013 Guts EQ-D

Nice work! Can you take another shot of the top at an angle where the resistor to the right of the 104 cap just below the Voice pot, and the resistor to the left of Q3? And can you tell if there's a trace going from lug 2 of the Level pot to the lower 10uF cap? Thanks!

Oh thanks. Must have been a copy/paste when i drew up the schematic. It should be 47n.

Re: Keeley - Fuzz Bender [traced]

Awesome job! I would be interested in a PCB if you've got extra. If I may add a minor nitpick about your schematic...it's not wrong, but it's going to continue to confuse people (as above) if we label the 4.5V divider as things like "Vb", which conventionally (in my experience) marks the opamp virt...

Re: Keeley - Fuzz Bender [traced]

I went ahead and built one. Sounds pretty close to the demos I've heard online. Used TL072s for the gyrators cuz my bench is a disorganized mess and couldn't find my 4558 stash (or I'm just out). Germanium is a Russian MP38a at around 100 hfe. For Q1-2 I tried both 2N5088s and 2N5550s. Both worked f...

Re: Earthquaker Devices - Arrows [traced]

You're really close. I traced this about a year ago, and the value off the resistor off the emitter in your schem is way too high. Should be 1.3k. And the 100k at the output goes to ground. If anyone needs a PCB I still have a few. Schem attached. http://effectslayouts.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/07...

Re: Bearfoot - Honey Beest

Here's my layout for this. Turned the JFETs the "normal" way (mostly for my own OCD) and moved the polarity protection diode to voltage to ground configuration to save a row. https://2.bp.blogspot.com/-15lZU31CH8Y/W-m4jag97oI/AAAAAAAAGVY/8pF4bVQiVocXm_xe2hLGFQEcO9db9LTBgCK4BGAYYCw/s640/BearFoot%2BHo...

Re: Bearfoot - Honey Beest

Never seen the source and drain reversed in a JFET design like this... In the pics it looks like the legs might be twisted around. You sure you got the pinout correct? http://circuits.datasheetdir.com/316/2N5952-pinout.jpg Not trying to be a backseat driver here. You're the one with it in front of y...

Re: Wampler Pantheon [traced]

Here's the whole schematic redrawn with what we know so far. I'd bet C11 is 470p and C13 is 330p, as everything after the presence pot up to C15 is a Baxandall tone stack with a fixed treble control. I also added a guess at the power section.

Traced it this week.

Re: Catalinbread - VariOboost preamplifier [traced]

Finished my clone this weekend. Love it so far. Very versatile booster or eq or both. Used a cheap eBay china 1590B enclosure (~4$) and cheap chinese knobs. The quality of both is surprisingly good. Love the raw sanded look of the enclosure. Overall design is heavily inspired by Mr Jon Lyons work a...

Re: Earthquaker Devices Palisades [traced]

Got a comment on my Instagram from a guy who works for EQD who said "You have some discrete misses." So unless he's trolling (which I kinda doubt), we're close but not quiet there yet.

Re: Earthquaker Devices Palisades [traced]

Here's a perf/pcb layout for this. Pots are board mounted, switches are off board. Best fit is going to be in a 1790NS like the original.
