    Radium Springs: Tweak values/trimpot For Tremolo Level?

    Changed my mind about the direction for this board and ordered the EEPROM for the ThreeVerb, but still curious about the above changes.

    Radium Springs: Tweak values/trimpot For Tremolo Level?

    I read the review of the Radium Springs where a user tweaked some resistor values to adjust the tremolo level, when using those modes: "replace the resistors controlling the tremolo signal with trimpots using the handy Trimmit boards or socketing them and changing them out until you like them."...

    Soldering SMD (FV-1) - wait between pins?

    Thanks guys. I might give drag soldering a try on my next build. I typically do what @Stickman393 describes above: working opposite points on the chip, slowly to avoid overheating.

    Soldering SMD (FV-1) - wait between pins?

    I typically never solder ICs (and rarely solder transistors), so I'm a little skittish/overly-cautious with my first FV-1. Pretty much the only question I have is: how long should I wait in between soldering each leg? EDIT: I've already started soldering this one, but it's slow going as I'm...

    BJFE Sparkling Yellow OD (1 or 3)

    #3 would be ideal. #1 would be awesome. #2 might ok, but already have vero for that one.

    Recommend a DIY Reverb that DOESN'T sound like an analog delay

    Is there a project/board for a Hooke clone/workalike??

    I ordered from Amplified Parts. I just wanted a couple, since this is my 1st time with FV-1s.

    Recommend a DIY Reverb that DOESN'T sound like an analog delay

    Yep, that's why I bought 2 FV-1s! :cool: I wanted something simple for the first one (Radium), and will go from there. I have a Strymon BigSky, but need something simple/classic for a compact board to go with my 5E3.

    Recommend a DIY Reverb that DOESN'T sound like an analog delay

    Thanks - nope, didn't know it before, but that's kinda what I was thinking, based on there being more info about programming on the EEPROM chips (and that the ones with the PCB have pre-loaded configs) and no mention of coding on the FV-1 itself. This should be fun!

    Got a couple of FV-1s ordered. Will probably start with the Radium Springs. Thx!

    Yeah, guess it's the Belton Brick I'm not so keen on. I'll look into the FV-1, but that may lead to more questions; I have ZERO experience with programming ICs, but that sounds VERY interesting/promising.

    You know, that 'bup-bup-bup-bup bup bup.....' echo. Any DIY reverbs that have a natural(ish) decay? Wampler Faux Reverb? Would like something for a small board when I take my Tweed Deluxe over to a cousin's place.

    Acetylene

    Thanks - I'm basically trying to avoid that BM/cocked-wah midrange when I hit the boost. I just want a gain boost.

    Acetylene

    I'll get that a shot. Do we know what that booster is based on?
