    Conqueror Fuzz - Can I make it a bit louder?

    I did the ol' swapparoo. It did help me get it a bit closer to where I wanted it so I think this is going to be the "fix" I go with. I ended up being pacified enough to box it at least!

    Conqueror Fuzz - Can I make it a bit louder?

    Oh wow, I never noticed the Mystery Machine. Maybe I will try that down the road! What kind of differences would it make? Maybe I should order an inductor and try it. I noticed there were different colors available that were supposed to sound different as well.

    Conqueror Fuzz - Can I make it a bit louder?

    Howdy! I just finished building the Conqueror Fuzz and it sounds pretty darn neat. The only thing I would like to change is getting unity volume at least a little closer to noon. Right now I would say its around 2:30-3ish? Give or take. Not sure that it's going to help but I think that's the...

    Low Tide - Almost Working. Help?

    The gate pot has an effect on the chorus? Perhaps I really need to dial this in more with the trim pot. I think right now I have it at what I would call maybe 2 o clock? It sounded more like a filter and not so much like it was gating and chopping off sound. I might need to hear more demos to...

    Low Tide - Almost Working. Help?

    Hey! My PCB actually has part values printed on the board. I still took the parts off to check and it seems like they are/were correct. That is a keen eye though! Also general update to anyone who sees this later. I think my low tide is basically working now? I can see that I definitely want to...

    Low Tide - Almost Working. Help?

    Hey! Thanks a bunch for all the stuff to check out! Unfortunately I cant find another 2sk30a in my parts stash right now but I did swap the 258 for an LM358. I removed the dual gang and put some electric tape and hit all the parts under with the iron again and added a little more solder. Cleaned...

    Low Tide - Almost Working. Help?

    Thanks for the heads up on Cabintech! Shipping looks super cheap if you only want a single part too which is killer. Picked up a couple just incase mine are janky after all. Super odd on the legs. If I pop a j201 (smd on a board) into the through holes It works as is - if I swap the 2...

    Low Tide - Almost Working. Help?

    It's hovering quite a bit but I can add some tape. The pcb was clean right before the photos but I decided to try reflowing and it got looking like that again! I will clean it up when I get home.

    Low Tide - Almost Working. Help?

    Sorry about the lack of photos! Looks like they are too big to attach here? Anyways here are some - Imgur photos .

    Low Tide - Almost Working. Help?

    Howdy partners. I am not a circuitry genius like it seems like a lot of people online are. Perhaps I am not skilled enough to finish this but I think with a few nudges this can be figured out. I have built quite a few pedals and troubleshot a bunch on my own but I am just not sure what to do...

    Low Tide - what differences are on the revision?

    I got a Low Tide PCB last month and I have had some issues getting all the parts so I put it on the back burner. Today I opened up the Low Tide document and it looks like it was just updated (today actually) - if anyone in the know happens to know what the differences are.. What are they? I see...

    Procrastinator swell speed mod?

    I swapped out c7 for a few other values and it didn't make a difference. It was kind of neat sounding without it in at all though - it added a sort of crackle into it.

    Procrastinator swell speed mod?

    Thanks a bunch for pointing me in the right direction. I will definitely try swapping that out tomorrow and see what happens. Woo!

    Procrastinator swell speed mod?

    Attack does control how fast it swells - but I would like it to ramp up slower/longer.

    Thanks a bunch for posting this and all your other great posts! This helped me get my Tangerine working. I would've been scratching my head forever.

    Procrastinator swell speed mod?

    Hello! I just wanted to get some input on what part I could swap out to increase the swell time on this bad boy? I built one last night and I think it more or less works but the swell is so short. I also wouldn't mind adjusting the sensitivity if anyone has info on that too. I assume there is a...

    Cepheid to be more like Caesar?

    I would've liked to build the Caesar but it wasn't in stock. That being said the Cepheid sounds wonderful and I assume I could probably mod it. I tried a couple tonepad mods (vibrato switch and intensity) but I'd like to add the dry/chorus/vibrato knob instead of the chorus/vibrato switch if...

    Modulation Monday-shallow water

    I have one of these PCBs on the way. Your build looks great! I always enjoy a fun LED placement. Ive been curious about the Tayda UV print process but I haven't looked into it. Very cool!

    Adapter ring to make 1590BB enclosure deeper (STEP file download in thread)

    I downloaded it and tried to open it in OpenSCAD but for some reason it wasn't having that. What program do you use? I am also curious - where did you find the model? I would love to mess around with some of these. I am not a great modeler but I wouldn't mind making some little spacers for...

    making PCBs

    I prefer the look of those (especially the left) but I guess in general I was just referring to the OPs image with the curved corners instead of a 45 or 90 degree. I found out I actually can add curved traces in DIYLC but it's a teeny bit tedious.. Not to mention I just wanted to know for...
