Re: RnFR- The Toecutter

I breadboarded it with 3.3 uF and 10 uF caps. Use the common stuff and you're all set. Still yet to get back to soldering, RnFR. Box is etched, board is populated, and neither have met. Someday I'll get it together and post pics.

I've had a thousand projects on hold and am getting through those slowly now, but I'm pretty excited to try a different mid control with the Muff

Re: Maestro - MPF-1

There's a very clear one here, I believe this thread also includes the factory schem: https://www.diystompboxes.com/smfforum/index.php?topic=69871.20 I've had way too much on my plate lately to do anything with it. It's a big undertaking and I just got back to soldering last night for the first time...

Would it be incorrect to predict a Frequency Central hot rodded version of this one in the future?

Re: Fulltone - 69

Trim it on a breadboard and use a fixed resistor on your build, would be my suggestion. If you don't have a breadboard, get one and love the hell out of the versatility and learning experiences. The very first aluminum 3 knob '69 didn't have a trimmer. Either Fuller biased them on a board/test circu...

Re: Prescription Electronics - Experience Octave Fuzz

I breadboarded the swell part of this last week to see if it did anything at all with my non-octave pedal collection and it indeed did not. I was hoping for something from the Uglyface, but no luck. When my Tone Machine is done, maybe I'll revisit. I'm thinking one of the more complex swell/gate ped...

Re: Way Huge - Swollen Pickle

The answer you seek is in the free download of the Duncan Tonestack Calculator. Plug in the Pickle values and adjust to taste.

Re: Prescription Electronics - Experience Octave Fuzz

In the P.E. Experience Pedal it is an integral part of another device and they cleverly made it to steal away the bias of subsequent active components Are you saying that it's not used in series in the Experience? I'm confused by what you're referring to with respect to the bias of subsequent activ...

Re: Prescription Electronics - Experience Octave Fuzz

Unless I'm missing the question due to gin intake, it is indeed used in series after your effect of choice. The previous clips of scrambler/fuzz factory illustrate this. I've been curious about the stacking and how it works well with over-the-top fuzzes but not some others. I've yet to breadboard it...

Re: DIY ebow

I'm thinking those small plastic boxes with sliding lids that hold .22 shells (obviously I'm American) would be pretty ideal for this. They're plastic and the battery might even fit in the sliding door as well. I've yet to try this, not having a pile of coils, though. And already being up to my eyes...

Re: a case against the j201?

It does also state the J201 was used because of improved noise performance, which would seem like a very reasonable discriminating factor. Assuming of course that the difference between the two in that category is appreciable.

Re: RnFR- The Toecutter

I have the board all populated with what I came up with, but all of my effects projects are now on hold until I get my new couch from my entryway into my apartment. While that would normally be a five second process, this will be a woodworking adventure.

Re: Electro Harmonix - DG (pics but no guts)

Yeah now that you mention it, it is off-centered. It was indeed advertised when I found it as a "DG" so I didn't even bother to take a closer look; that's the largest sized pic they had available. Good catch - definitely looks like an accidental hoax now. Zebra. Mods feel free to kill this one.

Re: Electro Harmonix - DG (pics but no guts)

I noticed the similarity as well. A lot of that line look alike and I wondered if the DG was a Gilmore reference or it's just coincidence. EHX gurus?

Electro Harmonix - DG (pics but no guts)

I haven't been able to find anything on this with a Google search, on the DiscoFreq site or anywhere here - does this thing go by another name? I'm not posting this as a request but more of a "does anyone even know this exists"?
