    Dead End Laika

    I dug this one out last night because I really want to get it working, but I somehow made it worse. Build Doc here: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1t9UkjtPVxwSyIMK1RBP7tvHhX9SKaRui/view Initially, I got a sound that just sounded like it was completely voltage starved, but at least all the leds...

    SHO Boost - noisy when off, whistles when engaged

    I really can't figure out what i'm doing wrong here. I ordered a 3-pack of RullyWow Fo Sho pcbs to mess around with. I threw the first one together with parts I had on hand, which are all correct but not normally my first choice (carbon resistors instead of metal film, big mylar cap instead of...

    Low Tide Issues - Low Volume, no effect

    I just noticed the pinout might be different on that transistor, looks like maybe DGS vs. SGD? I placed the SK30 in accordance with the silkscreen on my board. If someone can confirm the difference and also that this could be the cause, that would be amazing to have an easy fix.

    Low Tide Issues - Low Volume, no effect

    I finished up the Low Tide this afternoon, super excited about this one but I’m having some issues. Switches on and off just fine, but I get a big volume drop when it’s engaged – it’s barely audible with the vol knob maxed - and none of the controls seem to do much of anything except for an...

    SOLVED Ground Problem - GCI Socialist Jr.

    The help I get on this forum is seriously incredible sometimes. I got out my illuminated magnifier and checked the switch. I've gone over that spot that looks like a short between L+ and L- a number of times, and finally thought it was just a scratch on the breakout board. It was a tiny piece of...

    SOLVED Ground Problem - GCI Socialist Jr.

    No, the indicator LED is on any time power is supplied to the board. D2 turns on and off with the footswitch, though it's faint. Confirmed the LED is not shorting against the pots.

    It's the one that GCI themselves sell.

    SOLVED Ground Problem - GCI Socialist Jr.

    Building a socialist jr v1.1 from god city (https://kurtballou.com/docs/GOD%20CITY%20INSTRUMENTS%20-%20Socialist%20Jr.%20V1.1%20Build%20guide.pdf) and I have a grounding problem that I cannot track down. Pics are attached, this is the second time I've put this one together and had this exact...

    Toggle Switch - swap on-off-on for on-on?

    Hmm, that might be a little beyond my abilities to be honest. maybe i'll just use it as an excuse to ditch work for an hour and go grab the part.

    Toggle Switch - swap on-off-on for on-on?

    Working on the MadBean Kraken, and I have a bunch of DPDT toggles that are ON-OFF-ON. The hi-lo switch on this is ON-ON. If I use what I have, will it work with no effect in the center position? I feel like it makes more sense to have that option anyways...

    Source for MN3005?

    I actually heard back from Small Bear, they're gonna have the Xvives back in stock hopefully in the next 3 months or so. Lesson learned on hesitation, I think I assumed everyone was hunting for the V3207s but forgot about the chip shortage.

    Source for MN3005?

    Had a handful of the Xvive re-makes from SmallBear in my cart until the delay pcb (Lectrc FX DC Echo) that I was waiting on became available again. After I received the pcb of course, the chips are out of stock and all I can find are questionable ebay vendors. Anyone know of a listing or shop...

    Analogue Delay

    He must be getting a bunch of emails from this board, I feel bad for bombarding him now, I emailed him the same question yesterday after reading it here. Guess I better keep checking so I don't miss them this time.

    mosfet drive pedals

    I have a DOD Gunslinger and love it, but it needs something in front of it to boost the mids and fill out the sound for my taste.

    Dark Rift C25 - subbing radial tantalum for film cap, polarity

    Nevermind, found the right value in a regular MLCC. Not sure how to delete this post, so just wanted to let people know it's resolved.
