    Percolator Mod…

    I am thinking of adding a toggle (SPDT- on/off/on) to a Harmonic Percolator Injust built, in order to choose between either of the diodes, or no diodes. I could use a second opinion. As I see it (which is almost always the wrong way), I would connect the diode to one leg (? I can’t remember what...

    "System Overdrive" (Systech Overdrive)...

    Let me preface this by saying that if anyone came here looking for a review of a nice, simple overdrive (transparent or otherwise), you will be disappointed. The Systech Overdrive is an OD in the way that a cardboard box is a rocket ship. This is a fuzz pedal. The fuzz itself is interesting; its...

    Tone Bender MK. I (Tone Vendor)…

    I bought this PCB a while back, and decided to throw this together finally. AC128’s in a self-painted 1599BB enclosure. My MK. II is in a similar enclosure/layout, only that one is black. The hammered finish didn’t work as well as it usually does, due to the heat, I imagine. I originally had...

    Roland Bee Gee Fuzz…

    Anyone have any experience with this fuzz? Is it an original circuit? Or is it based on something else? The schematic I saw looked fairly original. To my ears, however, I kind of sounds like a Fuzz-Rite. I also read that the BeeGee was the “Jet” part of the Jet Phaser…

    Kliche: Strange Issue…

    So I just completed a Kliche build, and is doesnt worn (not surprising). This one is different, though. Firstly, I get bypass…but only if the gain control on the pedal is way up. The volume control controls the volume with the pedal off. When I turn the pedal on, I get almost nothing, unless I...

    TL072 Orientation…

    Does it matter which way it is put in? The case gives no real indication.

    SOLVED Help! I Need Somebody...

    Just finished the Conqueror and I ran into an issue: I get bypass fine, but when engaged the tone is very quiet, and very clean. I can tell the Yoko switch is working...there’s just no drive. I only get sound when the volume is at maximum and the gain at minimum. The other two controls seem to...

    Sorcerer Distortion Drops Signal...

    I just built the Sorcerer Distortion, and it doesn’t work. I get bypass, but no effect. I traced the signal and found that it dropped at C1. I replaced C1, and continued to trace the signal. A few pieces later I went back to C1, and the signal was dropped again. What may cause this? I’m working...

    42TM013 Orientation?...

    How do I orient the 42TM013 for the Conqueror Fuzz? Does the Primary (P) go to the left or right?...

    Shielded Wire...

    I am putting together a Mouser order, and wanted to know exactly what to get. I have a pedal that squeals, and the common suggestion was to use shielded wire. So what exactly am I looking for?...

    cv7351 Equivalent?...

    I’ve had the Sorcerer Fuzz pcb sitting around for a few months. Finally decided to throw it together, and cannot find much at all on an equivalent for cv7351. Any ideas?...

    Breadboarding a Fuzz-Rite...

    Be lately been breadboarding. I started with the Small Bear Fuzz Face tutorial (Si), and have been messing around with that for a bit. After that, I build a Vox Tone Bender (Si), which follows the basic skeleton of the Fuzz Face, and adds a bit. I prefer the Tone Bender, and have been swapping...

    Pads Done Come Off...

    not paying close enough attention, I soldered a pot in upside down. It was hell to remove (new, lead free solder...it’s very sticky, seemingly). Anywho, when I got the pot out, two of the three pads came with it. Is it game over for this PCB? Will it make a difference? Is it fixable?...

    (Solved) 1N34A or Zener?...

    Working on a Univox Super Fuzz build, and I pulled out a small bag labeled 1N43A (from Guitar Pedal Parts). It looks an awful lot like a Zener to me...

    NGD: Classic Vibe Jazzmaster...

    A week ago, I got a Squier Classic Vibe Jazzmaster. I don’t think pictures are necessary...imagine a 3-tone sunburst Jazzmaster with a red tortoiseshell pickguard. Got the guitar from Sweetwater. It arrived a day late (due to FedEx), but did show up. It was expertly boxed; as expected from...

    Substituting Potentiometer Values...

    I’m working on the Conqueror Fuzz, and am having trouble finding an A25k pot. What could I sub? An A20k? Is there a general rule? Should I just wait till I can find what I need?...

    Maestro FZ-1...

    I’m looking to build a Maestro FZ-1. No PCB here, so what are my options? A bit of digging turned up nothing. The Catalinbread Merkin Fuzz comes close, but that is based on a Fuzz-Rite, one of which I just finished a few weeks ago. Is there anything out there, pcb-wise, for an FZ-1?...

    5-Way Tele Switch Ideas...

    I am planning on modding my import Tele. The mod I wanted to do calls for a 4-way switch, which they do not make for imports. I can find a 5-way for imports. What can I do with the extra option? The mod I was planning on gives you bridge, bridge/neck in parallel, neck, neck/bridge in series...
