    My eBay GE transistor experience

    This isn't necessarily an endorsement, just sharing my experience. I picked up a some MP38A and P28 transistors from this ebay seller: https://www.ebay.com/usr/alexer1 https://www.ebay.com/itm/192849585657 https://www.ebay.com/itm/202649761724 I grabbed 20 of each (The listing quantities...

    Seamonk glitches depending upon guitar signal level

    I'm doing my best to avoid all the meme worthy troubleshooting behaviors with this one :) In my SeaMonk Build Report thread I noted an minor issue that I wasn't quite sure about. I decide to revisit it to see if I could resolve it or at least understand why it's happening. Here's the scenario...

    Redshift (AionFX - Blackout Effectors Whetstone Phaser)

    This was my first time doing an AionFX board (Quadratron and Spectron are on deck). I have mixed feelings about the board itself, but that's probably just because I've become accustomed to PedalPCB layouts. It seems like the holes on the Aion board are smaller and I had a harder time getting...

    Testing my Grab Box JFETs

    Pulling together a couple of threads here for no particular reason other than I spent a bunch of time testing JFETs and felt like I should do something with that info. In the Small Bear Grab Box thread I mentioned that I got a bunch of JFETs and @bowanderror said that I probably made out better...

    Bellum I, Unicab, Sea Monk, Phase II, Parentheses

    Catching up on a backlog of builds over the past few months. Bellum I - I was really excited to build this after hearing the sample here. I didn't have any 2n5088s in the 350-370 range as noted, but I had 7 in the 410s so I went with those. I'm still not sure how I feel about it. I haven't...

    TC1 (aka the Chinese tester) useless for measuring GE diode Vf?

    I was checking the Vf of some D9E diodes that I had and the numbers I was getting were way off, so I checked them with my DMM and got something more reasonable. I started testing a bunch of different diodes and here's what I found: Component DMM (HT118A) TC1 Difference 3mm Red LED 1.76...

    SOLVED An anemic Seamonk

    After Chuck's recommendation I wanted to build a Seamonk. At first I thought it wasn't working at all, but it turns out that it is, but the volume is pretty low compared to the input, even with the level pot cranked all the way. I've done some probing and can find roughly where the level...

    Spirit Box w/ Mods

    It seems like I was always one part short of finishing this one for months now. I did the fuzzdog mods changing R4 -> 18k, R8 -> 12k, and the Dwell pot to B25K . For me the dwell change is honestly probably useless, but there wasn't really a downside. One thing I did that might be helpful to...

    My (tweakable) Drill/Punch Template

    I know there are a couple 3D printed drilling templates out there, but I put something together last night in OpenSCAD, that makes tweaking the dimensions and hole locations, really easy. I've uploaded the .scad file as well as STLs for Tayda's 125B enclosures to Thingiverse...

    Muzzle Classic

    No problems assembling the PCB. The THAT4301 came from Mojotone (before they went OOS), everything else is from Tayda. I feel like the drill template (or my drilling) was just slightly off. I needed to tweak the LED a bit to get it to line up. Since I was using stereo jacks everywhere...

    Cataclysm and King Tut (Rullywow)

    I finished these off this past weekend. The Cataclysm was my first PedalPCB build, though these are only the 2nd and 3rd pedals I've ever built so it's not like I'm super late to the game. The King Tut was designed for a 1590B w/ side mount jacks and power, but I wanted it to match the...
