    Hard to say. Maybe symmetrical vs not?

    Matchless Lightning - kinda

    Amazing build! I agree that grounding is an art. That’s where electromagnetism laws really kick you in the butt, forget about discrete components!

    Well, I never imagined I would request YAK but here we are! This one sounds really good and I believe it’s a different design than the original. In short, I’d love to build one.

    I want to revive this old thread and pick your brains on the oxblood. Is it worth it? Should I put it on the wishlist? The demos I heard sounded good but who knows!

    Kliche Ge Diodes which ones do you go with?

    I wonder what the keeley oxblood does for the clipping switch? It sounds pretty great.

    Kliche Ge Diodes which ones do you go with?

    The diodes mostly affect the sound at the highest gain setting. I’m not surprised you don’t hear much of a difference anyways, but try cranking up the gain!

    Lower forward voltage will cause the clipping to happen sooner, that is you may notice more compression and distortion kicking in at lower gain.

    Yeah it’s really great!

    Which King of Tone do you have?

    Like my geometry professor used to say, you only have to do it once in your life.

    Korg oscilloscope?

    Same here. Never used one except maybe in college once. Also been building for 10 years although I’m not as productive as you guys!

    I have a friend who works on Otis maintenance. I think more on the mechanical side. But let me know if you have questions, I can hook you up.

    How can one learn such a power? The power of making a charger that is.

    Which King of Tone do you have?

    That’s what I put in my build as well. They sound great to me.

    Which King of Tone do you have?

    I think that’s the difference between the PoT and the KoT. The KoT also lacks that resistor. I haven’t tried them side by side but from demos it may be that the PoT is a bit more compressed (with that resistor).

    Quick Questions...

    So that trimmer is the bias trimmer. From the schematic my guess is that it won’t make a huge difference between 250K and 200K, but somebody more knowledgeable than me should probably confirm that.
