Re: Tim Escobedo's circuit snippets and their usage

You would make £0

Most of the people here have probably already built, experimented, Used, Tim Escobedos ideas for their own use.

Yep it works
You made a mistake. Check your component values and everything?

Re: Amptweaker - Tight Metal [traced]

Not sure if your schem is correct. There are a couple around which should be correct.
Or refer to storyboardist which is verified and compare to that.

You have done something wrong. Go over The circuit again. I have built loads of these.

Its a pretty rubbish effect anyway. I gave up and realised there are much better filter effects that perform better. Just my opinion.

Hey
There is enough information for you to see the component values. Do you need to be spoon fed?
All here man.

Build it or breadboard it. Then verify it yourself. Not many components if you are worried about the cost.

Re: Friedman BE-OD Pedal [traced]

Hi
I built this version and it works perfectly. I didn't have BAV99 so just used a couple of 1n4148 smd that I had in stock. No oscillation either. I would post a photo of my pcb build for reference but have forgotten how to do it.
Thank you.

Re: Friedman BE-OD Pedal [traced]

Just sounds like spending more money on something that won't make a difference for most people. Depends on how you play. I play chunk palm muted etc and never had any problems. Yes.
