    Even more new Tayda colors!

    Looks like the Day Glo colors I suggested a while back have been added to the enclosure color list! 1590BB Style Aluminum Diecast Enclosure Glowing Green 1590BB Style Aluminum Diecast...

    3D printing?

    Those of you who do it, show us what you’ve printed for pedals/guitar stuff! Any advice for getting started? What equipment are y’all running and what do you recommend/what should be avoided? I have some small parts that I need to 3D print, but my university shut down their 3D printing labs...

    Korkie Preamp (x2)— More Star Wars Pedals

    Some of you may know about this pair here. These two pedals are a long time off from when I hoped to be sharing them— I built the pink one this Monday and the blue one last night. I was hoping to have these completed for May the Fourth of 2021, but my dumb pseudo-perfectionist mind kept going...

    DEMO Oops! Wrong-808

    This one is long overdue. Some of you may recall the Little Green Scream Machine contest that our resident Monty Hall/Oprah hosted last year. Well, thanks to that contest and it’s associated prize, this pedal exists. Big round of applesauce for @fig— He makes the dreams come true 🤩 So yeah...

    Can I use an arduino mini to make a simple midi controller?

    I’m looking to make something to control my bass whammy similar to a molten voltage “one trick pony” but a little bit different. It would have two momentary footswitches which would select the midi program change commands in four groupings of program change commands: Bank 1 (1-21), Bank 2...

    Six-Banned EQ (WARNING: Graphic Content 😜)

    Not too many build reports of the 6 band graphic EQ project around here. Time to amend that. So, let’s start with an explanation of the design: It’s a graphic EQ, so this should be pretty self explanatory. Facebook has (used to have? Idk, I did this graphic around a year ago, and I don’t use...

    Nick’s Protoboard

    Hey everyone! Just finished up my Protoboard today (huge thanks to @fig for hooking me up with some hard-to-find parts) I got the last two genuine Neutrik jacks from small bear for this. Red switch cap for power and white for bypass. As with my μProtoboards, I cut a sheet of plexiglass for...

    Those of you who use Dale resistors…

    How? They’re super spiffy looking, but jeez are they expensive! Do you really have a $50 budget for just resistors in each pedal, or do you have a secret source where you get them for less than $0.50-$1.00 a piece? Is it just time for me to break out the terra-cotta colored spray paint, the...

    Tonebender Mk 3- nonsense voltages?

    I've got a Tonebender MK3 that I built a few years ago on a Fuzzdpg board when I was first starting to, but never boxed up. I modded it to have an external bias on q3 for a greater range of tones by replacing R9 with a 10K pot in series with a 1k resistor. I revisited it and I'm not making sense...

    Insufficient privelages?

    It’s suddenly saying I have insufficient privileges to comment in wishlist threads. Anyone else having this problem now?

    Vote! Which knobs should I use?

    As you may remember, about a half a year ago @fig held a contest for “little green scream machine” enclosure designs, and I came up with the “Oops! Wrong 808” design, based on the classic TR-808 drum machine. Well, now that I finally have some relays on the way for the relay bypass, I can...

    DEMO DUMESDAY DEVICE (An itty-bitty Star Wars fuzz)

    A quick build from Saturday night— except the enclosure was done up a full 13 months ago, and I just didn’t actually build it until this weekend. A Meathead Dark built on a DelykPCB LB-fuzz PCB… well, sort of— when you build a silicon fuzz face with the fuzz permanently maxed (which itself is...

    DEMO Happy Birthd(el)ay To Me!— 23 Skidoo (Modified Chalumeau)

    Well, I meant to be able to get this built yesterday, on my actual birthday, but I had a few quick snags (and a busy rush to finish up my final project for the semester) that made me need to spend an hour finishing it up today. For years I’ve planned on building a really wonky pt2399-based...

    Where to begin?

    I finish the current semester in two weeks, and besides a 6 week ASL class I'll be taking, I don't have much planned for the summer, so I figure now is a good time to start learning to program FV-1 stuff. Any recommended resources for learning the basics of coding in a way that will be relevant...

    Chalumeau mods

    What mods are most worthwhile in your opinions? I've been looking for a cool pt2399 based effect to build for my 23rd birthday next month, and last night I settled on the Chalumeau. First off is the matter of gain- If I understand correctly, the gain of the 386 in the circuit is 200, due to...

    Blue Meanie (Blue Box)

    Well, it’s the end of the year, and I wanted to get one final build done for the year before partaking in the New Years Eve festivities, so I finally got this sucker boxed up: Just occurred to me that this is my first actual build report here— I tend to forget to post, but I wanted to share...

    Decade Boxes

    Anyone else make decade boxes for variable parts substitution? I’ve got parts on the way to make a 7-decade 2W resistance substitution box, and I’m still deciding on what max voltage rating and what decades I should do for my capacitance substitution box. I could do up to 7 decades for that as...

    Metric Step Bit Recommendations?

    Does anyone have suggestions for a good Metric step drill bit that goes up in 1mm increments? It’s hard enough to find a metric step bit in general, but those few which I have found all appear to be really cheap crap. I use a nice Milwaukee step bit set that my uncle gave me because he got it...

    Son of Ben (Benson Preamp) Modifications Thread

    Inspired by @Big Monk’s recent modifications threads for the Electrovibe, XC Phase, and Hydra Delay, I thought it would make sense to create a dedicated thread to compile all of the popular modifications made to the Son of Ben circuit (Link to the PCB here). Let's list them and see what we can...

    Electrovibe Lamp Life

    Anyone know what the expected lifetime of the lamp in an Electrovibe is? Bulbs like that aren’t usually rated with the expectation of being repeatedly modulated, so I’d imagine it’s not an especially considerable number of hours. I’m guessing it’s not exactly a bad idea to mount a power-kill...
