    What programs on Octagon and Module 8 eeprom?

    Sorry if this has been already answered elsewhere or I'm too blind to find it, but what effects are pre programmed on the Octagon and Module 8 eeproms? Both are compatible with the latest version Arachnid board, correct? Just weighing up if I go with those pre programmed one or with the custom...

    Pinball Wizard multi fx unit

    I have posted about this extensively over at Madbean pedals and some of you might have seen it there, however since that is a 'members only' area 'll post it here as well. And there's some pedalpcb boards buried in there as well ;) Link to Madbean is here btw...

    Schematics coming soon....

    Schematics coming soon.... I know i keep on harping on about this like there's no tomorrow. I just like to learn and have them available for trouble shooting and comparing. Could we maybe have a section in the pedal wiki with just the schematics linked up, the ones to the existing pedalpcb...

    NE555 as chargepump.... how does that work?

    Just looking at Vfe schematics to learn and understand stuff, Peter uses the NE555 chip which is dirt cheap as chargepump in some circuits. This example is from the Fiery Red Horse. Can someone explain me how that works and what voltages can we coax out of that, what are advantages and downsides...

    Buxom and Mini Kliche

    Black Betty Boost/Buxom Boost. Nice versatile with the selectable tonestack and good output to drive the amp. Afterburner /Mini Kliche wired for true bypass (I know, sacrilege...) and relay bypass because I like it that way. I did resist doing any horsy or rainbow farts unicorn graphics.

    Super Stevie versus Timmy versus...

    The Super stevie is just a bit of a modded Timmy is that right? Which has stricking similarities with Vemueram Jan Ray and Lovepedal 11 and... It would be good to be able to see the schematics please to understand and learn a bit what's happening there and where the similarities and differences are

    M800 PAL 800 JCM Emulator run at 18V?

    Wondering if I can run the M800 / PAL 800 JCM Emulator with a charge pump at 18 V for increased headroom and punch as well as on 9V for 'normal' sound? Silly idea, yay or nay?

    SoftII mods for more presence/ treble and less gain?

    So here's the thread to look into SoftII mods, I find my one for my taste a bit too boomy and muddy for missing better descriptions. Here's my original wording I started in another thread and Chuck suggested to do it as a thread of its own (good thinking 99!): "Same story of I'd like less bass...

    What pcb design software would you guys recommend to get into?

    I have used Eagle in the past but thinking of getting into KiCAD, what's your guys recommendations in general and do you have recommendations for which tutorial series, resources and stuff are the best to look into? I did a quick google search and there's a bunch, just thought you might have...

    Biasing Son of Ben preamp

    So I just populated the Son of Ben / Benson preamp board and it seems to work fine, just wondering about the recommended bias settings of trimmers. On schematic it says "adjust Trim 1 to 2K" while the other trimmers are given with drain volatges measured at transistor. The later makes more sense...

    Stellar Fuzz / Flugelhorn.

    Stellar Fuzz, take on Noel Cornet Revu Fuzz. All in all a nice BigMuff take with lesser gain and lesser mid scoop, nice singing sustain and all. First impression: I dig it. 2N5133 trannies, laser decal with acrylic faceplate, relay bypass courtesy 1776 fx. Fluegelhorn and violins singing in...

    SoftII Fat Driver

    Quite versatile I find personally I like the lower gain settings best with bass dialed lower treble higher. There's certainly a lot of doom to be had with voice switch upper position and gobs of gain. Can get a bit too bassy IMO, but that's of course just a matter of taste. Quite versatile...

    Fuchsia Fuzz Transistor set advice

    Howdy, I have a Fuchsia Fuzz in the works and wonder if you guys and gals can help me with some advice on what trannies to use. I have a PN 4393 will that work equivalent to the MBF4393 specified on build doc? Also: I do have BC550B and I think the BC550C specifiesd would have slightly higher...
