    [Contest] Germania

    Hold your horses, there is a deception a foot. 
 Mr. Fig states, and I quote the scoundrel directly, "I just finished testing and cataloguing a lot of 50 Germanium PNP MP21A" 
 But Sir! I count with my very eyes 51, this is clearly a deception of grave magnitude, but I clearly see the secret...

    [Contest] Germania

    62hFE with a leakage of 0.197mA. But wait...
 
 I'd chosen to consult the akashic records for guidance on those numbers, but that does not tally with your message causing me to question the validity of the leakage value, all you say, all are under 0.120mA how can this be! Being stumped I feel...

    Question for EU/UK members

    The major suppliers in the UK are CPC, Rapid and RS, through them I can get my resistors and enclosures, most capacitors, some pots, some knobs, some OpAmps and some SMD FETs, but increasingly the range is getting smaller and smaller, CPC who used to be my go place I think is running down all...

    Question for EU/UK members

    This situation is possibly going to curtail/kill this hobby for me, I don't mind the TAX being paid it's that the 'handling' fee is proportionally too high. If I want to build a pedal in the UK I either make my own PCB (simple designs only) or I get it from Musikding. Then other parts from...

    What plectrum does everyone use?

    Ultrex for me, usually a 88 or the Jazz XL.

    Kliche high gain overdrive SOLVED!!!

    Hi Jamie, is it possible that on the first build you used an audio taper pot for the output and on the second build a linear taper?

    Coming Soon!!!

    I don't know, they look very much like a lot of TL072 to me ;) But I really hope I'm wrong

    Pedal round up, the good, the bad and the ugly.

    Pedal that always boomerangs back onto your board? Son of Ben & Paragon (Benson & KoT) I can’t justify both on the board, but I flipflop between them too often to be sensible. The pedal that surprised you most in a good way? Little Green Scream Machine(TS808), I think I was set up from all...

    Pedal round up, the good, the bad and the ugly.

    There are so many PCBs here, many I have no experience of, but it got me thinking that I have a few builds that I built out of curiosity rather than true desire, and others have been a burning, ‘can’t wait to try it out’ builds. I’m guessing many of us are building a respectable collection now...

    Strat appreciation thread

    I write all that and forget to say what it is :oops: It’s an American Series, I think I got it a year or two after they stopped making the American Standard. It comes in at exactly 8lb.

    Strat appreciation thread

    I think I bought it new in 2001, it's back to all original parts now except for the trem block. I did have Custon 54 pickups in it, but they didn't really do it for me at the time… it might be worth trying them again as they are in a spare pick guard so easy to pop in. From the time I bought...

    [Contest] XC Phase

    That's the clearest explanation of chaos theory I've heard so far.

    [Contest] XC Phase

    I've never played with a phaser, I'm still coming to terms with the fact that I've been a closet chorus lover and just didn't want to admit it to myself let alone anyone one else... could phaser be another modulation effect that I want to liberally apply, whether appropriately or not, to my...

    Bad Bob Boost

    I was looking to build my own Bad Bob boost, but couldn't find any details regarding differences from the AMZ boost, so that is what I built. It's one of my own etchings, the FETs are on the other side, it looks like I've used MMBF5457, but my schematic says J201, so I might have changed them...

    Cali 76 Compressor

    I don't know to what extent the pedal follows this schematic, but to my uneducated eye unless you use SMT you'll not get it into a 125b case. https://www.gyraf.dk/gy_pd/1176/1176sch.gif

    SOLVED Abyss distortion issue

    Sorry, I meant as the phaser sweeps there is a part that emphasises the bass, is this where the distortion occurs? Or is it throughout? The bass seems to overload my amp creating distortion in that part of the sweep if I happen to be playing a lowish note, for a long time I thought it was the...
