    Help a breadboard newbie/clueless guy

    I have never used a breadboard in my life. I built one with a power jack, the io jacks and a mini toggle. I am feeding this with a 9V one spot. For fun, I simply wanted to light up an LED but will eventually use this to test pedals and maybe "design" stuff. I am a total newbie, I know enough...

    ISOSCELES Super Low Output on Fortin Mode

    Finished my build last night of the ISOSCELES. Pedal is working and the TC mode sounds great, but when I switch to Fortin mode (the toggle on the left to go between preamp and boost called SW1) there is a massive drop in volume (regardless of the 33 or Grind toggle mode). In TC mode all is...

    which on/on toggle (left side or right side ) when looking at the top of the pedal is which and in which direction does it go? I am taking a guess at the below which is likely very wrong. •Boost/Preamp(Toggle Switch) - Toggles between Boost and Preamp modes •Triangulate/Crush(Toggle Switch) -...

    Spirit Box Reverb Chip Placement

    I'm starting Spirit Box now that I have my parts. I got the reverb BTDR-2H LONG from stopmboxparts (love that site). The reverb chip has 6 pins on it going 6 5 4 3 2 1 left to right when looking at the top of it. I looked up the datasheet of it and see the "pinout" is: 1. +5V 2. Power GND 3...

    Another J201 Thread

    I tried to cancel my ebay china order for the J201 but i'm gonna just chalk that up to a loss. The seller is probably fake as are the chips. In double checking my BOM for my 5 pedal mega build I actually need a total of 6 J201. Can anyone tell me if this dude here is selling legit chips? If...

    Gauss Drive 1N4448 and also 19k resistor in general On the GAUSS DRIVE, is this a TYPO on the DIODE of 1N4448 or is that correct? I am not finding those on tayda or stompboxparts. Found on eBay the 1N4448 So here is an odd one.. I am almost done, but I cannot find a 19kohm resistor. Stompboxparts...

    procedure to test a push button

    While waiting on my SMD SOT23 NPN transistors to arrive from ebay, I want to try and fix the non working tap tempo button. What am I doing with my DMM on this push button to test it? As a guess, I put my DMM probes onto each tab. Reads 3.2Kohm when not pushed, and 000.2kOhm when pushed and...

    TC Nova Delay ND-1

    I picked up a known non-working TC ND-1 Nova Delay. It powers on but there is no sound. Do we discuss t-shooting non PedalPCB stuff here? Looking for some tips/pointers as to where to begin the t-shooting process to see if I can make this pedal work, else I will have to sell it for very cheap.

    ART Inkjet Laser Glossy Matte Waterslide Toner Transfer Etching

    Ok, boys. I just buttoned up my 5th pedal, the Cataclysm delay. I was so confident in my work and the overall build that for the first time, I completely assembled it all the way before even testing. 100% perfecto success, zero issues. Perfect alignment going into the 125B enclosure,no...

    Inexpensive power supply

    I'm using the ghastly One Spot right now with the ridiculous long pigtail chain... I see pedal power 2 by voodoo is like 130 bucks but I see a boatload of similar units on Amazon for 30 or 40 bux. Brands like Donner and others I have never heard of. Seeking experiences on budget friendly...

    GIMP is like building a thermo nuclear reactor in complexity

    This GIMP program is kicking my ass. Would anyone possibly be so kind as to make a 10 or 15 step total moron guide to GIMP from taking a PedalPCB PDF drilling template, getting it into gimp, placing text at each knob, drawing in knobs so the text clears the knob, etc so i can print some dry...

    Pedal #3 is done - The Plumes - It is awesome

    Well boys. Pedal #3 build is done. #1 was the Face Melter, many challenges. #2 was the Dirty Shirley and everything was good but the main LED issue which was solved by jumpering SW on PCB to LED K pad (unsure why this happened). Quick fix and thanks to the amazing support here. Pdeal #3 was...

    Actually Clear / Transparent Inkjet Vinyl Sticker Paper

    Lads. I do believe my first foray into pedal design and gfx will be inkjet and vinyl stickers which I would then clear coat. I am wanting to source actual CLEAR / TRANSPARENT sheets. Everything I can find, people are saying it is still "cloudy" when put on. Anyone have any leads on an exact...

    16 pin IC socket across two 8 pin on PCB

    Fellow nerds. Is it ok to use a single 16 pin IC socket across two adjacent 8 pin "banks" as long as I am sure to slot the TL072 and the TC1044SCPA IC's in the correct notch orientation?

    Anyone ever do the same build, one using expensive one using low cost Tayda and compare

    Tone and sound is subjective to all, but I am nerdily curious if anyone has ever gone through the exercise of building 2 identical kits and one kit you went baseline Tayda, 1 penny stuff, and another using "expensive" caps and other parts and compared. I would think the main difference would be...
