    TC Electronic 'Booster + Line Driver & Distortion' (BLD), original 80's one

    New wishlist forum, new request! I think this one would be a good addition to the site, the pedal does a lot. Back when TC electronic was TC electronic, and making high quality stuff in the 80's. This pedal has not been made for a long while and is pretty much a collectors item now. The...

    SOLVED Strange lockup/overload issue with jfet preamp pedal

    Hi guys, strange issue I’m having with a jfet clone of an Orange Graphic Mk II preamp, all is fine with a low input signal but it seems like if I bang the strings hard, or run a boost of some kind in front of the pedal, it suddenly gets very farty/bassy, and with slightly more gain. If i touch...

    Backwards wired germanium diodes in a tubescreamer?

    Hi guys, quick question for those of you who know about germanium diodes, leakage, etc, I have an old modded tubescreamer clone I bought maybe 15 years ago when the boutique craze first got going, it’s been sat in the closet for years and I pulled it out recently. I was poking around inside to...

    Not quite a Parentheses [brackets?]

    Sorry for the non-pedalpcb content. I am waiting to see what the mofetta is before I place an order (in the U.K. and shipping/customs adds up!) This is an EQD Life clone like the pedalpcb mini parentheses, but from that Czech website pcbguitarmania. It works and sounds great but is not without...

    Jfet Orange MkII preamp pedal

    Hope you don’t mind non-pedalpcb projects! Pedalpcb boards are my favorite since the documentation is great, easy to work with, great selection, and very few if any errors on the boards and docs. But living in the U.K., shipping and customs fees are high so I only sporadically order boards. I...

    HM2 / Promethium distortion mod - bypass distortion?

    Hi everyone, I have just got a Promethium distortion pcb in the mail, I've waited long enough for Boss to make a Waza HM2, so I'll just make one myself. I was thinking of also making a tagboard HM2 EQ only for use with other distortions, or just for some 'HM2 flavor' without the clipping, but...

    Integral Preamp

    This is one of my favorite boosts of all time. Finished building the ‘integral preamp’ recently, to replace a tagboard version of the integrated preamp I made a while back so I could have a bypass switch. But there were some drawbacks with that one - larger enclosure, and I didn’t know about...

    Old solidstate amp preamps

    There’s a lot of cool solidstate amps out there that have some level of popularity, were used by big names, etc. but given their age, have become rare, fragile, and expensive when they do turn up. I’m talking the likes of the Ampeg VH140c (and derivatives, SS150, Crate GX130c) Randall RG100ES...
