    Light Plate...

    I’ve just drilled a through hole on the middle, and stuck a 5mm diffused led in the hole. If the led is bright enough, one in the center is enough to light it up well.

    Runoff Groove Tri-vibe

    Thanks! It’s matte light blue from tayda. I like all their matte colors so far.

    Runoff Groove Tri-vibe

    Just built this from a Fuzzdog pcb. Pretty cool project. The vibrato mode is impressive for such a low parts count. Very cool to read up on RoG site about the design process. The phaser mode (swirl) is cool, though sounds thin to me with my tele. The whirl mode is probably my favorite on this...

    New Build - Coda Effects Black Hole

    On-off-on would technically “work”. The center position would have no sound. This may have some bad effects, create some buzz because the inputs and outputs would be left floating, not sure. You also might get a pop sound when switching because of that open center position. Might not be a...

    Mod Benson Preamp for lower gain?

    For taking out C5 for lower gain, leave those pads disconnected. Don’t link them.

    Mod Benson Preamp for lower gain?

    Yep that would do it

    Mod Benson Preamp for lower gain?

    Yep that’s it exactly.

    Mod Benson Preamp for lower gain?

    Here’s some background on what’s going on with these. the reactance from jfet Source to ground does two things: 1. Affects the DC bias of the jfet 2. Affects the gain of the transistor (less resistance means more gain). DC can’t flow through the cap. So, the DC bias is set by the resistor...

    Mod Benson Preamp for lower gain?

    Empty, not jumpered.

    Big Muff - Green Russian

    Yeah I saw this was there implementation on the newest 125B pcb. Looks like a smart way to go and they put a lot of thought into their mods. If I decide to go back and mod further I’ll experiment with that also

    Big Muff - Green Russian

    Nice idea. I would probably use an ON-OFF-ON in that case, to preserve the stock sound, then a flat setting, and a mid boost setting. I like to mod but often try to keep the stock setting accessible for research/comparison. Like if I read something online comparing a GR to another type of...

    Mod Benson Preamp for lower gain?

    1st, make sure you adjusted the trimmers according to the note on the schematic page. for lower gain, you could try removing C5 and/ C10

    Big Muff - Green Russian

    Fairly straight ahead build of a big muff Using the values for green Russian. I only used the aion pcb because I prefer 1590B with side jacks. Initially I had planned on using mid knob which the aion pcb accommodates. But, after messing around in the “tsc in the web” calculator for quite a...

    Spin FV-1 soldering technique help

    The other way to tell is the chamfered edge (on left) is shown by a vertical line on the silk screen. As already confirmed, yours was setup right in the pic

    Double Armentum Boosts

    Keeping R2 value would keep the translator biased the same way. So I like the cap to ground idea. You could put a pot in series between the cap and ground as a gain control. But you could experiment with changing R2 as well since it’s a simple experiment, and I’m not sure if how it’s biased now...
