Re: Death By Audio - Compressor [traced]

Oh, hey, I built one of those a few years ago. It sounded absolutely awful, but in that DBA kind of way.

Most of the Echo Dream's character comes from the fuzz and modulation circuit.
If you're not sure which parts are the fuzz and modulation, you probably shouldn't try messing around with the circuit right now.

Re: mesa boogie throttle box diode substitute

1N4148 has a Vf of 1V while 1N4007 has a Vf of 1.1V, so it should be fine.
That being said, you should buy more 1N4148's since they're some of the cheapest diodes out there.

Re: Black Arts Toneworks - Boneshaker [traced]

The HM-2 is two transistor gain stages -> TS style soft clipper -> GE diodes in line -> SI diodes to ground -> gyrator eq While the gyrators are similar, the clipping section is quite different. The HM-2 is a hodgepodge of clipping stages, and IMHO suffers from it. Plus the GE diodes in that config...

It's mostly correct.

Re: Death by Audio Evil Filter Better 2014 NEW (UNRELEASED) [traced]

After some time away from the circuit, I think the expression wiring would be something comparable to this (where "Vdd" would be your 9V input from the main power and the "ADC input" would be the 9V line to the optocouplers): http://blackaddr.com/wp/wp-content/uploads/2017/03/exp_schematic-1024x480....

Re: Midnight Amplification Old Black - Is this a clone?

As I outlined in the emails, it's a big muff variant with clipping options and a bax tonestack . Not only does BAT not own the big muff circuit, but the Pharaoh doesn't have a Bax tone stack. Countless big muff variations exist and I listed a lot of them in the emails. Also, I just had a looksee at...

I'd argue it's definitely not a big muff.
No clipping diodes.
Q4 and Q5 are connected together.
Parts count is way too low.

any word on when the values will be plugged into the schematic? i've been dying to draw up a layout for this monster.

Re: Mid-Fi Electronics - Demo Tape Fuzz [traced]

Bear in mind that "trim" isn't a trimpot, just in case you might've gotten that mixed up. Trim is the gain control.
I'd mess around with the values and tapers on it, but it sounds like there are probably connectivity issues there.
That or there are problems with whichever op amp you used.

Looks like a Tonebender to me. [smilie=a_cookiemonster.gif]
AFAIK, the upper board is just a buffer/power setup.
