    Beginner - where to source parts

    That's generally the idea. But you're not going to want to replace all the film caps with ceramic discs, or try to wedge a film in a spot meant for an electrolytic. I stay away from the green chiclet caps, they're generally to wide or thick for a lot of boards to fit without cramming. As for...

    Beginner - where to source parts

    Tayda will have most, if not all of what's needed for most of the builds here. I use Smallbear for harder to get and out of production parts. And, typically use LoveMySwitches for switches, jacks, and knobs. Mouser's quite overwhelming, and kind of a pain to navigate, so I only really go there...

    Capacitor types for pedal pcb projects

    I've been using the yellow dipped multilayer monolithic capacitors from Tayda to replace the film and ceramic discs in a bunch of builds lately. Yet to have any issues with them, and they fit anywhere

    Parenthesis octave issue

    I only get octave in my Parentheses and Fuzzdog Death Mini when the diodes (silicon) are installed opposite the screen print. Otherwise it just seems to act as a sort of filtered gain stage, but definitely doesn't have a pronounced octave

    Parentheses Fuzz issues.

    Does the feedback issue only happen with the octave engaged or without?

    Parentheses Fuzz issues.

    Have any pictures?

    Parentheses Fuzz issues.

    They should be fine. More likely to be damaged by the heat of desoldering. I'd replace them just to be safe

    Leprechaun with Expression Pedal ?

    The Moog Ep-2 and Ep-3 will work, according to the Rainbow Machine webpage

    Parentheses Fuzz issues.

    Flip D2 and D3, so that they're opposite the screen print. Had the same issue with mine using silicon diodes

    Tubescreamer-Type-Pedals

    I play through a crystal clear solid state bass amp, and I hate every single Tube Screamer type pedal I've tried through it. The Mammal is a cool circuit, though. I'd add my recommendation

    Dream Fuzz Muffled (no pun intended)

    Your C7 is much too large. It's supposed to be 150p, you've got 150n

    Thermionic Mods

    Oh, I think it's pretty great now. Thanks for all the pointers. If I get to feeling especially saucy for more low end, I've got a bunch of 1-band eq boards on hand

    Thermionic Mods

    I like the 1n4740 instead of silicon for a little extra volume. As hard clippers, they sit in between red LEDs and 1n4148 with Vf of 1.2. probably could've just gone with 2 red LEDs for that stage, but I'm happy with it now. I'm not even sure why I have or where I got the MCP6002s. But I've...

    Thermionic Mods

    Sweet, I'll give this a try Just what I happened to grab. Been using them in place of 1N4148 in some hard clipper circuits, so they were on top of the pile The 6002s seem to be fine in this and a Sweet Honey I built recently. Probably try some other chips. Nothing wrong with TL072, other than...

    Thermionic Mods

    So, this thread got me wanting to take one of these to extremes, so I added a Little Debbie board to one of my last orders. So far, the mods I've done, and am happy with are C1 and C3 - 1u C5 - 2.2u C7 and C16 - 10u R6 - 100k R8 - 2.2k R9 - omitted/ jumper R12 - 1M C8 and C9 - 100p C10 - 1n...
