    Buddy’s Box ‘o Metal

    D4, D5, and C11 form a DC clamper. Because D4 and D5 will always be slightly unmatched, even in the world of Fig, C11 can charge to a DC voltage which may be positive or negative depending on which way the mismatch favors. D6 and D7 will keep that voltage below their forward voltage...

    Hydra Delay

    I'm just waking up, on first read through I saw "Did it all under my bic lighter and magnifier" .. I pictured some deserted island Macgyver stuff going on over there with a lighter and a hot nail. Try a skipped head setting, turn on 1, 3, 4 or 1, 2, 4. Those are where the magic happens to...

    What's on the workbench?

    Me too, I like the tactile resistance. I think it'll make more sense for what I'm likely to build anyway. I remember being disappointed the first time I used a whammy pedal because I expected them to return back to toe-up. It's not at the moment but I'll get it for you. I'm also...

    What's on the workbench?

    Mine too, but according to the StompBoxParts website: *With a few minor modifications, this can be made to move freely instead of returning to center. 1) Remove bottom of casing, remove both springs, then reassemble 2) Cut out center of rubber guide/disk. 3) The joystick will now move freely!

    What's on the workbench?

    Do folks actually adjust those by foot? I've seen that one (and others) and really couldn't wrap my head around how you use them.

    New Test Rig

    Very nice! I've been working on a design for one of these for a couple years now. Every time I think I'm done I start monkeying with it again. I like the 1/4" jacks in addition to the terminal block, I hadn't considered having both.

    Spirit Box not working when in enclosure

    Looks like your Input/Output jacks are wired backwards. Swap the red and black wires around.

    What's on the workbench?

    Hey I have the same pair. Now, what are we gonna do with em? I'm thinking some sort of fancy FV-1 or Daisy based noisemaker.

    Missing Build Docs / Schematics

    This should do it.

    What's on the workbench?

    As suspected, it is "just another" Tubescreamer. The Bold toggle throws in a germanium diode for asymmetrical clipping, the Hollow toggle changes the frequency of the Tone control. Otherwise it's pretty much stock values populated with dusty old components. :ROFLMAO: It's not a bad sounding...

    2 Loop Switcher with Flip-Flop? (Quartermaster 2)

    If you just want the radio button functionality (or want to add it into an existing build) the Intelligent modules have you covered and can handle as many loops as you need, but if you're building a dual loop switch anyway the new project will cover a lot more ground (when/if needed).

    2 Loop Switcher with Flip-Flop? (Quartermaster 2)

    You'll need a microcontroller for "radio button" style switching. The Intelligent Relay Bypass module does it, if this is what you mean. (you'd need two) I'm working on a more advanced version of the Dual Effects Loop if you aren't in a tremendous rush... I'm just waiting on more relays to...
