    DIY OB-X

    Cool find! I love working on old synths and would like build a synth one day, this looks like a good place to start. Haven't seen this website before and looks like a good resource.

    1n60 w/ Vf @ .86?

    That seems a bit higher than "normal" at 5mA, but looking at a few 1n60 datasheets, max Vf could be as high as 1v at 5ma. I have no experience with the atlas, but a lot of standard multimeters test at 1-2ma which would likely show up as something closer to the .2-.4 range you're used to. Is it...

    Reputable source for LM308N?

    Jameco has a few!

    Germanium Diodes for sale?

    I can vouch for stompboxparts and smallbear. Pedalhacker is new to me, great selection!

    Anyone with experience with Meistersinger pedals? Looking to mod my chorus

    I'm having a tough time jumping back and forth between pics and schematics but I think I figured it out. I think the spot to look at is the 47k resistor between pins 1 and 6 of the 4558p. Before adding a switch, test and try lifting this leg, should kill the dry signal.

    I Need a Better Clear Coat...

    This can has given me good results. My best looking clear coats have always been 2 to 4 mist coats before doing anything that's considered a light/medium coat. Then I do 2 (maybe more) light coats.

    Bontempo - Tap Tempo for PT2399

    Got a BonTempo assembled with PedalPCB's Seabed Delay. This thing is very cool! Built in subdivisions, modulation, blinky LED. Super accurate timing wise, which seems to be the common complaint about TapTation (and this is a lot cheaper). Highly recommend this little project to anyone looking to...

    Bad DC Jacks

    I've never liked that style. Same issues. Connection is really tight but somehow still cuts out power when bumped. I think most knockoffs use a true 2.1mm center pin when other "standard" jacks use a 2mm. Looking at Lumberg datasheets, the center pin is 2mm and also at 2degree angle. Good...

    Informant Overdrive

    Great looking build! Appreciate the demo, too. You've been cookin' up a ton lately, I'm jealous! I've had one of the Informant boards sitting around for months and need to get around to building it. I love the sound of the Rat with lower gain and I've been eager to try a DRV for a long while...

    let's see your pedalboard!

    Hasn’t changed too much in the past year, pretty stoked with how it’s all working and sounding! A few of my own builds on here, Luna is PedalPCB Malificent Mids, Cassini is a heavily modified Madbean Pork Barrel, and I built the favorite switch for the Flint. Playing the Moog more for the past...

    Vimex pots ok?

    Totally fine. I actually prefer them to Alpha if I’m given a choice. Fiberglass wafer is a lot stronger than that orange wafer that Alphas use.

    Anyone need Kliche 3pdt wiring board?

    I got a pair of them I didn't use. I'm assuming there won't be much need without the Kliche PCB itself, but you never know! Happy to pass along.

    Hyped Fuzz 1/8w resistors

    I use 1/4w angled, works fine. You can always bump up the power handling on resistors in any circuit (if they fit).

    Caeser volume boost.

    I've done this mod to a CE-2 several times (except I want it louder). I'm not sure which resistors it is exactly on the Caesar/Julia (based on CE-2), but on the CE-2 I'll adjust R21 (dry) and R22 (wet). I usually knock these down to 42k which gives a slightly noticeable volume boost to my ears...

    Timmy's (Tommy III and more)

    Paint pen for the letters, I believe. It's not powder coated, just spray paint for the base color.
