    Timmy's (Tommy III and more)

    What did she use for the black paint? Was it direct onto a powder coated box then clear coated? She is very talented. I can totally see you wanting to commission her for more. Kid's got the knack!

    Helping Hands - Is it worth it?

    I'm a fan of the Quad Hands. Also, I put my spool of solder on one of the arms and that helps keep things close. Whatever you end up getting be sure to add something to the jaws of the clips that can protect the PCB. The teeth of those things can chew up the board pretty easily. Silicone tubing...

    DIY Pedals - Parts Organization

    I use plastic parts drawers. Each drawer has a slot to add a divider and I used cut cardboard in that place where needed. I made labels on the P-Touch which are removable so I can reorganize or add new values if needed.

    Basic Workflow Tips for Building a PedalPCB

    Good Idea! My workbench is disassembled and all in boxes though. Moving to a new state (Oregon). Might be awhile til I get to take a photo. But, I'll add it as a step in there somewhere!

    capacitor pcb symbols

    I used MLCC there. Ceramic works too. Generally, everything under 1n can be MLCC

    What would you put in this enclosure?

    That's super rad looking! I like the AMZ mini boost for it's one knob simplicity. I used a diy vero one for years and it was perfectly simple for running before or after gain stages to saturate or boost as needed. No frills, pure utility, and sounded clean...and boosty.

    About to drill my first enclosure...anything I should know?

    I once bought a similar set but only used the 1/8-1/2". I've since just purchased singles of em.

    Insulated vs non-insulated jacks

    CDB has definitely helped a lot of us cope with some issues. And he's perfectly legal in California.

    SOLVED Cataclysm Jr. Hum, no signal

    Actually on further inspection, is your DC jack grounded to the enclosure? Could you share a product page link or datasheet for that jack? I see metal on metal where it's joined to the enclosure. That might be a problem but it's hard to see. If so, you may need a DC jack that has a shielded...

    SOLVED Cataclysm Jr. Hum, no signal

    Just to clarify, I was referring to the wires going to the tip and sleeve lugs of your input and output jack, not your DC jack, which may or may not be an issue with the new "doesn't turn on" issue. It's hard to see some of the wiring, especially concerning the footswitch because of the...

    SOLVED Cataclysm Jr. Hum, no signal

    Your in/out jacks are wired in reverse. Àlso, what's happening under that heat shrink tubing at the footswitch? You might want to just cut it away as it's not doing what it was designed for and could cause problems if heated.

    J201 Substitute

    Yeah, they have been finicky for a lot of people here. Mostly due to fakes i.e. too-good-to-be-true deals on ebay or the like. FWIW, I ran out of my good J201's a while ago, I think they were Siliconex branded, and I haven't had any issues with the SMD ones sold on the site here on those lil...
