Re: I Need Help With Diezel VH4 [SOLVED]

With the ICs you have to try what sounds better for you. I tried some but there was not that much different in sound in m opinion. But the loss in highs with the standard caps is huge. original diezel (and bogner and GIF i.e.) use the Nichicon, the gold ones and Wima. Their pedals have much higher ...

Re: I Need Help With Diezel VH4 [SOLVED]

The VH4 (Weasel?) should have more than enough gain even for singlecoil strat higain sounds. It actually has so much gain that the DIY builts mostly has a lot of oscilation on the higher gain settings. I highly reccomend to use high quality caps for that built (as in the original diezel pedals), th...

I Need Help With Diezel VH4 [SOLVED]

Hi, I built Diezel VH4 and it turns out working as it should. However, I feel like the gain is not enough. It has the angry tone to it but still lack the gain like in Youtube. Mine sounding more like a crunch and even Angry Charlie has plenty of gain on tap. Is it normal? I've checked for bridges an...

Putting it after a buffered did the trick. No more whistling noise.

Re: Greer Lightspeed

I built it but have a squeal happening when drive and loudness reach a certain point in relation to each other - i.e.: when the drive is full up, the loudness will cause squeal when about half way. the same happens when the drive is lower but the loudness is higher. Anyone else encounter this? Yes,...

Re: Boss CE-2 build - no delayed signal

I spent one whole day debugging my CE-2 circuit and found that my clock driver chip was faulty.

Luckily, I ordered few pairs of them and only 2 pairs are working.

One faulty chip, either clock or bbd, will mess up the readings.

Re: Diezel VH4 Pedal [schematic]

Hello everyone! I've been through the painstaking process of designing my own layout 3 times till I got one that doesn't oscillate at Max settings in all pots. Thinking this was a success, it still miserably fails at the voltage converter section. I tried both max1044 and 7660SCPAZ but still get th...
