For me the question is only if Mr. F*** is uneducated, stupid or simply lying. Here: http://fulltone.com/GT500.asp you can read: The Hi-Gain side has a discrete Inductor-Driven Midrange circuit ....never been done in a pedal before. ....never been done in a pedal before ???? Hmmm.... ...and what is...

Would always be great as a reference, but you'll have to weigh the pro and cons of the job. Great proposal anyway. Does it contain stuff you weren't able to find online? Eventually I found the datasheets for a batch of russian transistor i got on ebay. It's about 120 pages long. It doesn't contain ...

Transistor Substitution Handbook

I don't know if you guys are interested, but I have an old transistor substitution handbook from 1965. It has pinouts for many obsolete transistors, as well as other information. If someone at the forum was interested in scanning it and putting it into PDF form, I would be happy to send it out to th...

Cheap and dirty Boss OD-3 mod

this "opens up" the sound at the cost of a tiny bit of gain....

clip / remove D6 and D7.

It's a really good sounding pedal "stock", IMO, but i think it's even better with this simple mod.

Interesting mark. Wonder why they are so damn expensive compared to other generic types here though? About $2.42 (converted currency) for one DIL8 at my local electronics shop. Are they perhaps out of production? Have you tried out LM833N ? Seem like they have some reputation for sounding good in d...

How does he solder the jacks.

as for the build (from a "I hate wires" perspective)... WOW. This is my guy! A design optimized for easy production.. Cool!
He's a Purdue graduated engineer that decided to build a few pedals :)

Another TS...but VERY well built. He no longer builds pedals.

GUT SHOT

I have a bunch of what are, IIRC, the single version...the LF351N ...I'll have to give them a test drive.

Too many parts, too little time.

That "treble cut", IIRC, is similar to the "tone" control on the Sam Ash Fuzz...though I believe that the SAF uses a much lower value resistor. I'm just going by memory though, so I may be mistaken.

I'm pretty sure that I have the full collection, if anyone needs them. I just have to dig out the disc. There are 4 or 5 versions of the EZ Face, a couple of the Nitroburner, etc.
