    Barber LTD Silver

    I made this for a friend today. I am so surprised at just how good it sounds! Only a few mods to the original, mainly diodes and output cap - nothing major. It's a great circuit and such a different experience from the ones I had when I first tried Barber pedals. The schematic is on Barber's...

    BB-MB - So cool.

    After seeing what some of you guys present here I feel a bit inferior for my minimalist pedal exteriors. I do feel like I should probably try to at least label what the knobs do but I genuinely like the bare look. Overall though I am more interested in what the thing sounds like. Anyway I am...

    Weird Barber pedals experiment

    As I have had lots of time on my hands and it has been taking ages for PCBs to arrive I've been trying out circuits to build to see what I can make of them. As I have posted before I have had some success with modifying some BJF designs I liked but felt could use some tweaks to suit me better...

    Couple of modified BJFs

    As the International Mail Service Disruption is proving to be very real it's back to vero for me. I've been quite prolific and in a way having no access to PCBs has been a good thing, as I'm particularly happy with how these two particular pedals sound. First is a modified Honey Beest, traced...

    Back to square one...

    A few years ago I built my first BJF designed Sparkling Yellow Overdrive. I changed this bit, changed that bit never really got into it so put it aside for a while. Well this week, after having some success with a couple of other BJF designs I have gently modified I thought I'd look at the...

    International mail disrutpions

    Are a fact! I ordered some boards over a month ago and they still haven't arrived. I know it's out of Mr PCB's control and this is not a dig at PedalPCB at all. It's just extremely frustrating because I ordered the boards as something to do during the shutdown and now it looks like our shutdown...

    Really disappointed with Mythos Pedals

    Last year I bought a Mythos Chupacabra online after seeing it touted as "early Billy Gibbons' tone in a box". Had to buy online as nowhere around me stocks Mythos. And I had seen Mythos pedals being praised by players who I trusted online. So I thought "how bad can it be??" But when it arrived...

    Might need some negative resistors

    It just occurred to me that as I'm tweaking the Gauss Drive and reducing the value of R16 lower and lower I may get to the point where I need some negative value resistors. I've gone from 4K7 to 1K, thinking of trying 100R so where do I go from there? Where can I get some -1K resistors? It...

    One Control BJF series Strawberry Red Overdrive

    I have one of these and it's probably my favourite of all the BJF designed OD pedals I have tried - which is most of them! The One Control stuff seems not to get any attention I can see, but some of them are very good sounding pedals. I would love a PCB of the Strawberry Red mainly so I could...

    Xotic SL Drive

    I recently had a look to see if I could find a trace of this pedal but there is nothing to be found. I think there would be a fair bit of interest in this as a PCB.

    Catalinbread Adineko

    I have absolutely no idea what is inside and Adineko but it's one of the few Catalinbread pedals I have any interest in. The cheesy modulation is ok - it's more the lo-fi nature of the repeats and the the way the two heads work which interests me. Is it one of those "too hard" pedals?

    Angry Charles - or "Perturbed Charles"

    I built a Pedal PCB Angry Charles some time back, and it's a great pedal. But as usual (sensing a theme here??) I wanted a little more grunt from it. With a Strat or a Duo jet a lot of dirt pedals sound like pedals because they seem to artificially cut the lows too soon. Through a stack or at...

    Gauss Drive - more bass!!

    I'm really liking my Gauss Drive and looking forward to the BB Mid Boost even more. But with the Gauss Drive I am running the bass knob at near maximum to get the sound I like. Is there a simple mod I could do to get a little more bass? I guess I could use a C50K pot for the bass to give myself...

    Guvernator (kinda)

    I've built everything I have PCBs for at the moment, so while I'm waiting for some more to arrive I was thinking about what I'd like to do with a Guvernator. I actually had an original British built Guv'nor back in the day and used it for a few gigs. I remember wishing it has a hair more low end...

    Frost Drive: mint or sherbet?

    Just looking at the build docs for the Frost Drive - someone told me it was worth building. I doubt it but figure what the hell? :) So what is the difference between mint or sherbet? Is it just the frequency ranges they operate in? Why isn't it available in chocolate? And I've found a dual...

    Semi-sweet 3

    Well this is an interesting one... As usual the build went without incident because the boards are so good. (Do I end up with free stuff for always saying that??) Is it just me or does this pedal have low output? I find this with pretty much any Cornish designed pedal I have built - I have to...

    How do I add a bass pot to a...

    I had so much success with Chuck's excellent advice on how to add a bass pot to an Expandora and a Rat that now I am curious as to how I might add a bass pot to a Bluesbreaker or Prince of tone and a BB Gun OD. I've always liked the basic tone of a King of Tone pedal but in my rig they are...

    Solenoid Drive (modified)

    I worked out how to add the bass pot rather than relying on the switches inside - not too difficult thanks to the resources online these days! So now it's built and working. I had to reorganise the pots to add the bass pot so I though why not rearrange everything so I don't get confused?? On...

    Gauss Drive

    Just built this - as usual it worked first time no hassle - great board! Soundwise I really like it. It definitely has that TS compression which I'm not a massive fan of but if I lower the gain to around 9.00 or less it still has bite with less compression. So I looked at the schematic - wow...

    Solenoid Drive - bass pot?

    Just received a PedalPCB order and one of the boards is the Solenoid Overdrive. As yet there are no build docs so no schematic, but I do have the schematic available for the Aion version which has a bass pot. I'm wanting to use the bass pot on my PedalPCB board rather than the switches and...
