Re: Donnerbox - fRATternity

Build a Rat

Add the "Ruetz mod"

Add a rotary switch to control clipping diodes/mosfets/LEDs (as per Dano - http://www.beavisaudio.com ... http://www.beavisaudio.com/Projects/FKR ... rMouse.gif )

should get you close ...at the very least

one jumper is a 0 Ohm resistor, the other a piece of wire :scratch: nice vintage elco's, why not score some more and avoid the ugly black ones :hmmm: led resistor being soldered on the switch is a beginner's trademark :roll: floating pcbs get criticized in other threads and applauded here? :evil: w...

Re: Pax - Fuzz Wah

I don´t know exactly..... I have an Ibanez Standard Fuzz with empty space too and tried to figure out, what the empty space should do... I came to the conclusion that the empty space on the standard fuzz probably was for an input stage as it can be found in the Univox Super-Fuzz and later was adapt...

Pax - Fuzz Wah

A good friend sent this to me as an "early Christmas present" ! (Thanks D !!!) Photo's are "pre-cleanup" ...time to bust out the chrome polish ! Basically a "Superfuzz & wah combo".

Re: Interesting opinion on Jimmy Page/Early Zep Tonebender-FZ-1!

Aside from its compatibility to the OC80 range, I was thinking the same thing. What trannies were used in the FZ-1? Brad's got my FZ-1A, and I forget what was in it.. The one I have sitting on my lap has RCA 2N2614's in it They may also have 2N2613, or in the case of the straight "FZ-1", 2N270

Interesting to note : In his ad for the Concorde Treble Booster it states " When I first started designing pedals in 1961 I produced a Treble Booster that was tried and used by my friends including Jimmy Page who then played in local bands.

Re: Interesting opinion on Jimmy Page/Early Zep Tonebender-FZ-1!

Hi Donovan - good to see you over here ! Anyway, interesting thread. I also have some doubts about it being a FZ-1. One of the things you find out after doing a bunch of research (and AG can certainly attest to this) is that people like Roger Mayer have made their living by having musicians believe ...

Re: Dwarfcraft - Shiva [traced]

Very cool Aen -

I think I remember you mentioning that the Shiva was "loosely based" on 3 LPBs in series ? ( Tweaked from there )

I dig the Great Destroyers tone a bit more, but I think the Shiva has a bit more "mass appeal"

...cool artwork, BTW

Typically if a post goes more than a few days without any real replies, there is no help to be given, unfortunately. When people at this forum have info, they are usually quick to share it.

Which means you get to buy one and post pictures. :D

Re: Boss - PD-1 ( Distortion Rocker ) [schematic]

Hi guys! I'm trying to fix a PD-1 that doesn't work. Do you know what is the component marked R 25 DC +10 -150 on the power board? I never saw something like that.. :? :? When I've opened the pedal the transistor near it was blown. I think the same pw board has been used on all the "rocker" series,...
