Monster Effects - Mastortion

If anyone has this I'd like to see good gut shots. I can't find hardly anything on this. I know Brent Hinds of Mastodon had them make these. He said its a od that can blow the tubes in a preamp. Doubt that's true but I still wanna see what's inside

Re: Stand alone octave up

Search for it. There's literally DOZENS of octave up circuits out there from passive ring mod type to the fwr pedal. Not all of them are fuzz based, but most will have at least a hint of Fuzziness. From what you have described, It sounds like the Dan Armstrong Green Ringer would be perfect for you, ...

Re: 200 QTY 16mm pots for just $39 until April 9!

Just bought a wide assortment whilst they were marked down, I bought 100 a month ago for more than this, and they are the best pots I've ever used.
If you need pots at all, this is the deal of a lifetime.

Re: Op amp big muff kit for ~30$ ??

Yeah they certainly are using the mythos around that pedal for their gain. The pcb alone is almost as much as the other full kits. Not everything they have is a bargain. And I should have said the shipping time is either blazing fast or ungodly slow.

Proaitone pcb kits (ttone kits) eBay

As a follow up to my last post here I got some more pcbs from them. The new rat pcb wouldn't work at all because the drain and source of the 2n5458 were tied together. The build instructions didn't even show a spot for the jfet. Never the less. The OD1 is actually a Zendrive and its a higher quality...

Re: Chinese 1N34A real or faked diodes?

Depends on the seller and what the actual product looks like. If you want good reliable cheap GERMANIUM diodes the Russian types are great. The D9 series is great. I just got in another 100 D9b and they are all in the .325 Vf range. I did buy some 1n34a that are the smaller package do-35 like 4148s ...

Re: Component refurbishment

I looked into this a year or so ago after buying a lot of bunk 5543s off eBay. They didn't have the notch or the dot indicator and when I plugged it in the socket it literally got so hot it exploded on my bench whilst I was debugging the entire build. Be careful when buying cheap ass components onli...

Re: Rangemaster; Trouble finding trannies that bias

I would check that all my parts are right one by one and check voltages. Its always somethings you've over looked like I had a harmonic perc that wouldn't work no matter what and I had the ground in the wrong spot off board. Make sure pots and all are the right resistance etc. don't get too discoura...

Re: Op amp big muff kit for ~30$ ??

I've bought 2 kits(opamp muff, rat) from the proaitone12 dude on eBay and other than a tight ass squeeze with a battery in there it sounds great. I couldn't believe drilled painted 1590b and pcb Plus all relevant parts for $20USD shipped. The ds1 has the pcb layout from the big ds1 pdf floating arou...

Re: Danelectro - DJ-13 French Toast Octave/Fuzz [schematic]

To revive a dead thread I'd like to ask if swapping out the si diodes for some genuine ge or even schottky diodes could possibly enhance the octave effect. Also since these use thru hole any resistor or cap swaps to make it more meaty and thick instead of so upper mid tinny sounding? Also could matc...

I have been lucky a few times and stumbled upon old items loaded with tons of carbon comp , vintage trw maroon caps,a pleothra of 2sb 2sa ge transistors ...etc I only remember the brands of the stuff. One was a 70s 8track HiFi tuner and tapedeck . the trw came out of a Curtis Mathis console TV with...
