    Could PedalPCB Intelligent Relay modules be used with DIY VFE pedals?

    VFE's switching on the latest versions of each pedal included switching code that he couldn't release with the DIY files. Rather than going back to previous versions of the DIY pedals that didn't have relay switching, or messing with the board layout/schematic (if you even need to), Can...

    Some of my winter builds (PedalPCB, EffectsLayout, PCBGuitarMania, VFE)

    I've been quite busy over the winter, but still found time to power through some builds. After this last one I figured I should share some of the work. In order of completion: PCB Guitar Mania Acapulco Tone: Acapulco Gold with a clean blend and baxandall tone stack. Loud, just like you'd...

    Propolis, Muffin, Circulator, and Multiplex Echo

    Propolis fuzz gave me a great canvas for a full sized etch, and with how terrifying it can sound, I figured a xenomorph would be the perfect representation. And thankfully I had some leftover pcb mounts from some vero builds. I’ve built 3 big muff circuits so far so for this one I thought I’d...

    Best 2 in 1 drive combos?

    I’ve only done a single 2 in 1 so far (two sticks of doom and an amentum boost). but I’ve placed an order with a bunch of drive pedals and am curious about what people would combine. Mercurial Boost Box and All EQ Soldat Distortion Graphite Distortion Chop Shop Greengage Overdrive My first...

    Parentheses Fuzz

    Had the board sitting around completed while I tried to figure out the artwork. Finally, after rewatching some old Godzilla films again, I found a great artist named Attack Peter who does woodcuts of pop culture monsters. Woodcuts being a cousin to etched metal printing, these types of images...

    Elk Big Muff Sustainar

    Bought 3 big muff circuits to make the Mask Us, a Green Russian and after seeing Nostradoomus talk about the Elk Gakki clone, I went and did some research and found that one of my favorite guitar players, Wata from Boris uses one. Super simple build to knock out while watching American Gods...

    SOLVED No output from Duo-phase, Phaser B

    Using an audio probe, I traced the signal loss to resistor 29b (560 ohm) the phased signal comes off of C14B, but doesn't leave R29b to the output. I replaced it with a tested one, and still no luck. Phaser A's equivalent R29A works just fine and that side of the phaser functions as normal...

    Last two builds of 2020 (Deflector Reverb and veroboard Lastgasp Laboratories Rattle Crow)

    2020 ended for me with some frustrating debugging still left to do. But the last two I boxed up with artwork finished were the Deflector Reverb, which is pretty nuts, especially compared to my Spirit Box. The Rattle Crow was my third veroboard build, as you can probably tell from the mess of...

    Delegate compression LED not lighting up.

    I get sound in bypass and when the effect is on (level knob works great!), but I wasn't getting any compression. I noticed the LED didn't seem to be illuminating when i opened it up. When plugging in the dc jack, it initially lights up, but then fades, and no signal seems to cause it to...

    Delegate Compressor (Boneyard Edition) optional diodes D6 and D7

    On the silkscreen they are D6 and D7. but on the schematic, they look to be D1/D2, Am I correct in thinking they are indicator LEDs for the compression ratio?

    Deflector Reverb (hiss as density knob is turned ccw)

    Good morning (for me that is) everyone! I just finished the Deflector reverb and it sounds great, minus one issue I encountered. When density is closest to 7 o'clock, there is a loud hiss introduced to the signal, and gradually diminishes until completely gone around 4. It's more noticeable as...

    Maybe time to finally post some builds

    I've been building pedals since September of 2019 when I ordered the Death Cap and Arkaim kits through Musikding, but since it was going to take forever, I bought a BYOC CE-2 off Amazon Japan to build while I waited... After that, I realized it would probably be better to source my parts like...
