Re: Baja Presence and Resonance 091118 [documentation]

I built a Tight Metal. I know there's around the schematic of the Tight Rock and I thought to build one day a kind of version between those two pedals: a sort of Tight metal but not so heavy and more rock than metal. :D
Your pedal sounds great! :applause:

in case any one who wanted to hear Baja Presence and Resonance before they build it, here is a short demo that i uploaded in my Facebook account. https://m.facebook.com/story.php?story_fbid=4030681353610728&id=100000067104937 I like your Khaos Distortion. Do you share the schematic? Or at least...

Re: Catalinbread - Galileo Mk2 [traced]

I built it and like it very much (I used 10n between vol 1 &3 which helps a lot to control the highs), the only "issue" I'm having is that even with the gain pot rolled back all the way CCW I have a ton of gain, any idea how I could solve this ? Thanks PedalPCB has in the schematic a ...

Re: Basic Audio - Lucky Number fuzz [traced]

I noticed just one difference between your redrew schematic and the one from PedalPCB: https://www.pedalpcb.com/docs/PedalPCB-FuzzXIII.pdf The 4.7M to the ground is 1M in the PedalPCB schematic.

I drawn a layout of this schematic, but I didn't build it and I'm not sure somebody else verified it.

Re: Analogguru - FET-Booster (vero layout)

Probably, in this kind of circuit the input cap doesn't make too much difference. If you want to cut low end try to reduce C4 cap: 1uF, 220nF... But it will make some difference at higher gain setting, not a bad way, anyway. In alternative try to reduce the output cap C3. Let us to know about your e...

Re: Diezel VH4 Pedal [schematic]

I don't know how much difference do those ICs, but consider that a C25k pot setted at 50% is about like a B25k setted at 90%.
In this circuits (if there's no other difference) with your B25k you should get lower Presence and Deep setting than the original one (or than a C25k pots one).

Re: Joyo - JF-03 Crunch Distortion [schematic]

Sorry, maybe I typed wrong early about the big cap. I mean C6, in you schematic is 22uF. (The output cap 2.2uF I think is ok). But that 22uF give a lot of bass.

Re: Joyo - JF-03 Crunch Distortion [schematic]

There are others 22k resistors in the board, so you can compare the color, too.
With C22 C6 22uf we get a huge bass boost. So huge that it seems wrong.

Re: Joyo - JF-03 Crunch Distortion [schematic]

Are you sure that C6 is a 22uF. It could be a 0.22uF.
And is R7 a 22k and not a 10k?
And what abut the 51R at the begin of the schematic? That means the circuit is not full grounded when it bypassed?

Re: Fuzz War Mk 1

I don't know this fuzz, but looking at the schematic I can tell you something about the Volume. The wiring is unusual, and for some reason it doesn't work on my software emulator, so I can't be sure about I'm going to tell you. Anyway, I see that it brings to the ground not the output but the circui...

Re: Earthquaker Devices - Speaker Quaker [traced]

Yes, I saw it, that's a nice version, too.
I'm building the Speaker Cranker in a 1590A box with just two pots (I added a master volume), and I love it just like that. But thanks for the suggestion.

Re: Earthquaker Devices - Speaker Quaker [traced]

I solved it. :)
I had 10k resistors that was acutally 1k! :slap:
That cut a lot of gain, indeed. I found it because trying a 12k resistor it made a lot of difference.

(A little trick: a 100-330pF cap between collector and base cut the harshness.)

Re: Earthquaker Devices - Speaker Quaker [traced]

Indeed, on my Speaker Cranker board (not my breadboard) I have the three 1N60P, and I got a bit of more distortion, but my opinion is I have, anyway, very low gain. I'll try to explain. If we hear the original Speaker Cranker the pot goes from 0 to 10. On my build is like the pot goes from -5 to 5. ...

Hi guys. I built on stripboard my Speaker Cranker after I tried it very quickly on the breadboard getting a nice sound, but without to know too much how the original sounds. But now I noticed that I have drop volume with the More pot at min, and I got just a bit of dirty sound at higher setting, tha...

Re: Joyo Ultimate Drive Mod for bass guitar

There's a 68nF cap, I guess C4 in a Joyo Ultimate Drive schematic I found. Replacing it with a 330nF could make a big difference in the low end when you increase the gain. You could replace, maybe C2 22nF, the input cap after the buffer (because the Joyo should have a mosfet buffer) with a 1uF.
