    Beetronics Zzombee Filtremulator

    Yea I can only imagine it's got all kinds of stuff in there and is probably way above my paygrade. I've been getting a little more confident in my surface mount soldering and FV-1 type stuff, so I was thinking that maaaaybe there's a chance haha.

    Beetronics Zzombee Filtremulator

    I could see this being an example of a pedal that I might as well shell out the $350 for, since it looks like there's a lot going on inside it and it covers a ton of ground. Just thought I'd put feelers out there to see if there's a possibility of getting a PCB for it, since I've seen a lot of...

    Sometimes Meeting Strangers on the Internet is Good

    This is Sometimes Meeting Strangers on the Internet is Good. I did this build in a trade with someone on Reddit for a Tape Delay and a Fuzz. On one side is a Benson Preamp clone, and then on the other side is a SmallSound/BigSound Mini clone, with a switch to choose which order the two effects...

    2 in 1 mixing PCB and Vero

    Hey all, I'm currently working on a 2 in 1 build for a friend and am having a bit of trouble wrapping my head around the wiring/translating where the vero connections would go.The build is a Benson Preamp on one side (PCB) with a SS/BS mini on the other (vero), with an order switcher connecting...

    The DIY Board is finished!

    I'm pretty sure I've posted a pedal or two from this board before, but I finally got around to putting together a mini-board that's all homemade (including the board itself). From right to left I've got the General Tso Compressor, Special K Distortion, Circulator Phaser (with a few of Chuck's...

    [PedalPCB] Son of Chimera Benson Preamp

    Looks great! Isn't it such a lovely pedal? That was the first build that I did that made me go "holy shit, I can't believe I actually put this thing together by hand", it sounds so good. Bummer to hear about the Guitar PCB j201s not working out, they've always been pretty solid in my...

    SOLVED Circulator loud popping issues

    That fixed it! And the box cap made itself right at home with all those other Tants. Thanks again!!

    SOLVED Circulator loud popping issues

    I’ll give it a shot! That particular spot on the board looks like it’s got enough room for a box cap (although it’s a bit of a squeeze). Would it be better to put one of those in there if I can manage it? Or should I stick with tantalum for uniformity’s sake? That makes sense. I’m sure that’s...

    SOLVED Circulator loud popping issues

    Ok so if I'm understanding your first question correctly, I've got just my guitar plugged into input and my amp into output. I checked continuity for C9 and I got the beep only when I was touching the positive end (the side with the little dimple at he top of the cap) to output. I'm assuming...

    SOLVED Circulator loud popping issues

    Yea this was a good lesson in making sure I understand a component before just throwing it in there. I’ve never used tants before and figured a value is a value, lesson learned! For checking positive voltage I’m assuming I set the DMM to the DC volts range and measure both leads with that...

    SOLVED Circulator loud popping issues

    Woke up this morning and realized that Tantalum caps are polarized, so I would imagine that that could probably be the culprit? So I guess my question is are these caps ok to use? And if they’re polarized, do they need to all be in the same orientation since there’s no polarization marker on the...

    SOLVED Circulator loud popping issues

    Hey all! I just finished putting together the Circulator build (using a few of Chuck’s mods), and it’s making a pretty substantial pop every time I engage or disengage the pedal. Outside of that everything works as advertised and it sounds great, but the pop is a pretty big bummer. I used some...
