    TUTORIAL PedalBlock Tone Control - Gimme All The Muffs!

    My lazy answer is try it and find out on your breadboard! I don't have this ready to go on my board right now to experiment, but I will speculate here. 100k is pretty much the standard for Muff tone pots with a handful of exceptions. The purpose of the pot is to alter the resistance between the...

    What is the purpose of the buffer here? I'm just getting around to reading this

    Tayda Hand Tools

    I bought these on my last Tayda run. Gotta say for $0.60 they’re pretty good. Anybody else have any Tayda tools they’d recommend?

    Mammoth deviator…

    I was browsing through there site to order some 2n5484s last night. Saw the free pcb and added an enclosure, switches, and pots. My $8 order turned into $20 with shipping. I have a stripboard version of this and not 100% satisfied (octave switch worked before boxing it up and now it doesn’t)...

    In Transit…

    I have never had a lost shipment. Late shipments, definitely. Push comes to shove you can always reach out to small Bear and let them know what happened

    Tommy III suddenly dead

    This may be an indicator for future troubleshooting for you. I had similar problems on my early builds: worked at first then crapped out due to cold solder joints

    IC Chip Storage

    For ICs I find that using a pill organizer from Walmart does the job. I have a few of them in a drawer. No issues for me

    Distortion + vs. DOD 250…

    What are your in/out caps at? Stock values are too treble-y for me

    Distortion + vs. DOD 250…

    I liked red LED and 4148s for asymmetrical clipping

    TUTORIAL What Are All Those Symbols? - Intro to Schematic Reading

    Exactly. Just make sure you're not plugging anything else into your breadboard on that row! Depending on the opamp you may want to simply ground out the unused pins to reduce noise

    Distortion + vs. DOD 250…

    R2 (1m in the build doc) controls the gain potential. The higher the value the more gain. When I breadboarded mine it sounded better using double the resistance, but that just means it's hitting the power rails that much harder. A tone filter is needed on this circuit too IMO or you can use...

    Tayda Brand Pots

    Some of the Tayda pots I've gotten are rather stiff while turning them. Contact cleaner may fix that, but I don't have any. No real issues though from them

    Distortion + vs. DOD 250…

    I like the Distortion +. It is incredibly moddable for such a simple circuit. You may want to have switchable capacitors in the feedback loop

    BJT, Mosfet, JFET, etc - Can Someone Explain the Datasheets for Pedal Building?

    Just an el cheapo TC1 from Amazon. I know it won’t test everything, but I can use the Geofex method for testing germaniums
