DMB Lunar Echo

So, anyone ever take one of these to bits? As I understand it, it's based on the DM-2. We all know about adding an LFO to a DM-2, and about shorting the delay resistor to get the runaway repeats. If the DM-2 assumption is correct, that gets us most of the way there. One of the two things that are in...

Re: Blue suede fuzz unit & Chopper echo effects Units

Okay, I've just been toying around with the ETI "Blue Suede" Fuzz schematic, and had a couple of ideas, first of all I noticed that the circuit has no tone control, wouldn't it be cool to add the TS-808 tone control section, and furthermore add some means of adjusting the clipping symmetr...

Re: Line 6 DL4 external tap tempo mod

That pic is 100% correct on wiring. But there are two things to take note of: 1) It mentions that not only can you use an external tap for the DL4 with this mod, but you can also control another tap tempo pedal from the jack. This is true. However it mentions the DD5 and DD7. Boss delays take a norm...

stripboard is hard to find here because it isn't 1970 anymore :)

you can get small boards though for smaller projects from Aron's store over at DIYSB:

Re: silicon chip fuzz interesting design

i don't think that would work in this particular type of amp. I believe you pretty much need a +/- supply. the anderton stuff was mostly op amp based, which allows you to run off single supply if you bias correctly. this discrete stuff is a whole 'nother animal. I'm not at all sure, but it might wo...

Re: silicon chip fuzz interesting design

that is interesting. looks like a fuzz box a hifi guy would design. now i just gotta build that +/-15v supply i've been putting off! I dunno, a lot if the anderson stuff was bipolar but ran fine if you ran it on 9v and tied the neg voltage to ground instead. Way less headroom obviously, but wouldn'...

Re: Acoustic 360 Fuzz

Hi Barcode, I am going to try this out over the next weeks and I will post regularly once I do. I have always wanted to have one of those amps and love the fuzz section. I need a bit of time here before I go into it but I will do my best to help it along. Thanks for the response. Chris Did you ever...

Re: Big Muff Plus

I like the idea of using a 3086 or 3046 for a BMP. How would this work with the two transistors that share an emitter? Would you connect the common emitter to ground and use these two transistors as the clipper stages? Or, use these as the clipping stages with a 100 ohm to ground? It would depend o...

Wow, that is too often true. But I think most buy KOT for bragging rights to their peers and sometimes they convince themselves it is an investment they can make some scratch from the thebay.

2. 400 bucks is certainly enough to build a couple of KOTs and get all the materials etc. but will that hold value in resale? no. And that's what most normal musicians are concerned about. "can i sell this to buy dope?" :blackeye

Re: Seen on Ebay K-O-T pfffttttt

For that kind of scratch you could buy all the materials (iron, pcb, etchant, laser printer, etc.) and the time it takes to get one you could learn how to do it. Although not everyone wants to do all that. I know it's hard for people like us to understand, but for some people it's worth that scratc...
