    Resistors sourced from Tayda

    I find them better than resistors from Aliexpress kits. They have thicker legs which I use then for breadbording (jumpers) and as a potentiometer mounting legs. T.

    I need a new step bit

    I buy them from Aliexpress. 3-12mm, 1mm step. T.

    And this is what happens when you drill before you measure...

    That's why I prefer "regular" pots, with some wire (cut off resistor leads) soldered to the legs of the pot. It allows to compensate for problems like this. T.

    JFETS, matching etc.

    Can you take one of the J201 transistors and make comparison of Vgs readigns from DMM method and transistor tester? T.

    JFETS, matching etc.

    Those jfet readings are from LCR meter or DMM? Suspiciously good as for ebay 201's... T.

    Cannot view the file - "You must be logged in to do that." T.

    JFETS, matching etc.

    I've never worried about any protection because I have dedicated adapter for smd, socket for through hole and I do not mix bjt and fet stuff ;) But of course it's a good advice. T.

    You can also try "circuit" described here (bottom of the page) Also here - T.

    JFETS, matching etc.

    Ok.. Tayda jfets are jfets.. thats' t the meter probably. Those cheap LCR meters are not the best choice for JFET measuring. I have one and do not use it for jfets because readings are off. Mourguitars - can you measure the same transistors with this simple setup? T.

    12R4 resistor value????

    It's 12,4 Ohm. M, K or R letter between digits replaces comma (M-mega, K - kilo, R - Ohm). T.

    Future of the J201 - Moving forward

    I use almost exclusively MMBF/MMBFJ transistors but when possible I prefer to have through hole footprint. It's easier to swap transistors soldered to adapters than solder-desolder smd transistor. But I do not see any problem with "smd only" path. T.

    Why It doesnt works?

    I'd check this spot first. T.

    Must Have Distortion Pedals...

    It would be nice to see the Palladium. It's been available for quite some time and still no schematic available T.

    Types of enclosure decoration...

    Not sure about proper name for this type of paper - probably cardstock. I usually use 120g/sq m, sometimes thicker. T.

    Types of enclosure decoration...

    I never use label as a drilling template :). It's a crime ;) But seriously - when I design the artwork I use layers for different types of objects. Holes, text, outlines, hardware, etc. I have separate layer for centerlines. For the drilling template I leave visible only - holes, faceplate...
