Re: Wampler -Triple Wreck- [traced]

No, I actually didn't take any pics of the board topside before I boxed. I have some of the last version, but not this one. Are you going SMD for the 1590 layout? lol, actually I was talking about the top side of the enclosure :wink: No, I am doing through hole and no boost circuit. But, I am addin...

Re: Mad Professor Sweet Honey Overdrive [traced]

built my layout here and it is now verified (amended the post). initially the gain wasn't pot working, but turned out to be a dodgy pot. replaced that and it's all working as desired. interesting OD... may end up on my board. tested on my ruby and it certainly highlights harmonics.... will see how ...

welcome to FSB... carefully note the "F" in FSB. CodeMonk has already clearly articulated how it works here.

Re: Dunlop - Cry Baby GCB-95: how to improve it for cheap

dredge.. I was given a GCB95 a few years ago from a bloke who as tired of replacing pots.. I finally got around to getting into it and was gonna try the anderton optical mod but before I can do that I need to get it working properly.. I tried it out and it does 'wah' okay, but the 3pdt is wired all ...

this is among the saddest of results from the saga, and even more a victory for those is the loss of some prominent tracing members :(

Re: zombie chorus - 1590a layout

wish I could help you further mate, but 'polarity and solder shorts' pretty much exhausts my troubleshooting skills. tried other ICs or same ICs in other units to ensure they're good?

Re: zombie chorus - 1590a layout

so looking at that initially, it looks okay (although I can't 'read' resistors so dunno if the values ar eokay), caps and ICs are polarised correctly. issue I see from the voltages is they're way away from what mine are at this post http://www.freestompboxes.org/viewtopic.php?f=13&t=15164&start=20#p...

Re: Lumpy's 73 Boost

I added the two 1M's, on the input and other under the board on the output for the popping. I omitted the 68k beacause it's for the led resistor. Thank you for your corrections. 68k for the LED? It's not for the LED my friend :) 10k resistor for LED limiting is the maximum I have seen. Beside, if y...
