    Problem with Nucleus Overdrive

    The JFETs are all from Tayda, I know, they may be questionable but I'm not sure how to test them.

    Problem with Nucleus Overdrive

    I've had a bit of time to play through the Nucleus and don't think it's functioning properly quite yet. The sound is fuzzy and loose and not at all like the demos I've heard of the Atomic Overdrive, which has more of a hot-rodded Marshall tight distortion sound. I've probed around the circuit...

    Problem with Nucleus Overdrive

    Thanks for the help PJS, I figured it out, there was a cold joint at R28 just before pin 5. Works fine now. Appreciate it. Haig

    Problem with Nucleus Overdrive

    I checked the voltages on the TL072 opamp: pin 5: 0.37v pin 6: 3.02v pin 7: 8.49v pin 8: 9.13v I don't seem to have continuity between pin 7 and ground. Are you sure that's necessary? the schematic doesn't seem to show that. thanks for helping out.

    Problem with Nucleus Overdrive

    Thanks Barry, Yes, I've tried two or three different TL072's same result every time.

    Problem with Nucleus Overdrive

    I need some help with this pedal, I've made 5 in a row without any problems but this one has me stumped. The signal sounds great right up until the end of the circuit and then gets really quiet and noisy (ground hum). Here's a gut shot and where I believe the problem is in the schematic. I've...

    Anyone build the Nucleus Overdrive yet?

    wow, that interactive BOM is slick. Taking it to the next level. thanks

    Anyone build the Nucleus Overdrive yet?

    i'm also waiting for the schematic, audio signal gets about 3/4 ways through the circuit and then dies, I get hum in at the output terminal.

    New albums

    I just put out an instrumental rock album with my friend from Portland. All DIY pedals to make the recording: Hope you enjoy it. Haig

    No Film waterslide tutorial

    Solid technique, I'm definitely going to try my next few this way. Thanks for the detailed process.

    Quick Tayda UV Printing Tip

    thanks for sharing. I find the clear-coating and cutting the holes a pain in the ass and your method looks sharp.

    Quick Tayda UV Printing Tip

    They look great, too bad about that unnecessary layer of white ink. From what I understand from working as a graphic designer way back, you would need the white underlay for colors lighter than the green background color but not for black. Matte looks way more precise to me. Might try Tayda’s UV...

    What’s on deck for you?

    Thanks a lot. Getting a bit better at the water decals these days but there’s always the chance that air gets in there.

    What’s on deck for you?

    I just finished a Tso Compressor and a Thermionic Distortion (pictured below) next five PedalPCB pedals are: 1. Abyss 2. Boneyard Delegate 3. Ocelot Octave 4. Brown Betty 5. Caesar Chorus And a few Aion pedals, to push my skill level: L5 Preamp and the Blueshift (a double decker PCB)...

    cool, I grabbed a dozen. thanks for the tip
