Re: Lovepedal Black Magic [traced]

The IC spacing is also off. It should be 4X4, not 4X3.

And once you raise the value of that .047uF cap to Vb, it goes away. :thumbsup

Re: xts precision overdrive

Increase the .047uF cap to Vb to tase, swap the 47k resistor in series with the drive pot for a 10k, swap the drive pot for a 1M audio taper, mess with the clipping diodes until it sounds right. Not very hard to get something similar. Coincidentally, the builder and I have a mutual friend and he own...

Re: Diaz Amps

I'm guessing it would be like his 'Diaz mod' to BF Fender amps. An AB763 pre with the vibrato circuitry and normal channel removed. Probably a Dumble or Boogie type tone stack with the tone control switches. Big Twin type power section. At any rate, they're very likely to be Fender AB763 derivatives.

Re: BJF - Honey Bee Overdrive degooped [traced]

Finally applied Bajaman's mods to my pedal and it sounds much better. I still have intermittent octave down transients in the sound, but it is lessened for some reason. I think that will go away when I switch to the original ic. I like the slight treble boost that it gives. Should be a nice compani...

Re: Red Witch Empress [gut shots]

Cool. I guess I'll have at it tomorrow to get some pics and then try reversing it myself sometime in the next week.

Red Witch Empress [gut shots]

If anyone wants to have a shot at tracing it, I'll take it apart and get detailed pics of everything in the next couple of days. I might have a go at it myself if I have the time next weekend.

Curious Inventor has a pretty good tutorial on their site IIRC.

Just found this on the Best Buy site:

For $8 it doesn't matter if you've gotta tear the whole thing apart.

Re: RMC - RMC3 Wah (Geoffrey Teese)

Here's the trace side of mine. The pic is from a crappy web cam but I guess it's better than nothing. Don't know if anyone is interested at this point though. https://i378.photobucket.com/albums/oo225/mmolteratx/Snapshot_20101206_27.jpg I've got a decent pic of the component side though. https://i37...

Re: Analogman - King of Tone [traced]

I just got mine after an 18 month wait. Both sides have the high gain option. If anyone's interested, I'll try to get some guts. mmolteratx, if you're still monitoring this thread, I am VERY interested in seeing the gut shots. I would like to know more about the 'high gain' mod. 'Tricky desoldering...

Re: Suhr - Riot [gut shots, schematic, layouts] [traced]

i built this pedal,but it very noise. is this normal? My original Riot is definitely not very noisy. That's funny, because my Riot is fairly noisy with the gain about about 80%. Yup. Mine starts to hiss around 70-75%. I gotta say, I don't think the Riot comes anywhere near living up to the hype. It...

Smaller 1/4" jacks?

I ordered a drilled 1590B from PPP and the jack holes are drilled too close to the edge to use a normal Switchcraft type jack. Is there anything with a smaller profile that I can use?
