    Pyrocumulus - Sustain knob mostly effects tone last half of the sweep?

    Hey! Sorry for asking for help so frequently! I appreciate you all. I built this Pyrocumulus (Thorpy Fallout Cloud) for a friend and I'm not confident about the way the sustain knob works. It definitely increases gain but most of what is happening toward the end of the sweep is it's adding a...

    Double checking Pot and Kettle Boost/Preamp Behaviour

    Edit : Read another post where they talked about the switches and they mentioned the boost toggle does engage the preamp knob. Sorry for the extra post! Not sure I can delete this. Howdy again partners! I built the Pot and Kettle recently and I'm not totally sure if it is behaving correctly...

    Best way to use transformer with old Conqueror PCB?

    I have an older Conqueror PCB without the extra holes for the transformer middle pins and support claws. Should I just cut/bend the middle pins and claws? Just curious what other people did with this version. I assume primary is facing up and the 4 corner pins just go to their corresponding...

    Cepheid TL022 Alternative?

    Howdy partners! I made the mistake of forgetting to add a TL022 to my cart and now I have a nearly complete Cepheid sitting on my desk. Curious if there are other appropriate choices? I have a bunch of different options - just not the one I need! Guessing a TL072 could work but may be noisier...

    Old Dung Beetle PCB Cap Value Discrepancy?

    Hey! I got some pcbs from someone who wasn't going to finish them and a Dung Beetle was one of them. It seems like the layout changed a fair amount and one of the cap values is different. Since I don't have the old schematic I can't tell if it's the same cap that changed.. Kind of looks like it...

    Champ Stamp - Trimmer / Biasing

    I just built the Champ Stamp and while it functions and sounds pretty good I have a couple questions about the trimmer/ biasing the J201 Has anyone else built the Champ Stamp and happen to know what the trimmer should be set to? It seems to be biasing a transistor other than the J201. I don't...

    Caesar toggle - No shape change?

    Oh! I just meant I turned the blend all the way up to hear the shape better. I will try the caps and see how it goes! Thank you for the suggestion.

    Caesar toggle - No shape change?

    Aye! Thank you. I had a feeling the LEDs flashing in one position implied it was working and it was just very subtle. I can really only tell if its in vibrato mode and even then it's not a huge difference. Just a bit sharper or smoother. Pretty hard to tell in chorus mode. I appreciate your help.

    Caesar toggle - No shape change?

    Hey! I got to the testing phase of my Caesar and the toggle doesn't seem to change the shape. All the knobs function as they should as far as I can tell. I can see the red leds on the pcb flashing when I flip the toggle one way and the turn off in the other direction. I assume that part is...

    Help finding a particular capacitor - F334K brownie style

    Can anyone point me to a place that would have one of these super wide brownie caps (F334K v250MPP1)? I know it's 330nf 250v. I also know that I don't need an exact replacement - but it would be cool to find one. If anyone can let me know where to buy one - or maybe you have one or two in your...

    Out of stock.. Dang! I do see they have some pre soldered though. I wish I would've paid closer attention before I ordered! Doh.

    Anywhere have MMBFJ201 in stock?

    Probably beating a dead horse but I have a few projects coming up that require J201s. The place I was going to order from seems to be out of stock now. Anyone know where I can get some legit ones? Not sure if the ones on ebay are genuine.. I am open to suggestions! Thanks a bunch!

    Blender ( Fender Blender ) Tone Switch Question

    Hey! Just built this one up and I'm not sure if it's working quite right. I just wanted to ask about how my tone switch/control is behaving. When the LED is OFF the tone control works as I expect most tone controls to work. When the LED is ON the volume jumps and it sound different but the tone...
