    Sorry, I haven’t put it together yet. Hoping to get to it this week.

    Tommy III internal SPDT

    Good idea! I may just go with the off board wiring. Thanks

    Thanks, I didn’t think about the pin spacing.

    Tommy III internal SPDT

    The build docs call for a SPDT Mini Slide for the internal clipping switch. Can I substitute that for a short shaft On-On SPDT, assuming there is enough clearance to close the enclosure? Or, alternatively, could i install a long shaft On-On switch on the underside of the board and use it as an...

    Need advice on new PCBs to order

    I've seen several people post the Sea Bed, so I'll add that one. I also have an archnid board that I havent started and wasn't intending to use as a delay but I guess thats the beauty of those pedals. I can always swap in another EEPROM. I give that a shot as well. Thanks for the input!

    Need advice on new PCBs to order

    My main guitar is a LP style that I built with a set of Grover Jackson Habenero Classics in it that I can split the coils on. The sound I'm looking for is bright and crunchy. I've already got something to cover dark and heavy. Thanks!

    The tommy was one I was considering. I may give that a try.

    CDXL Classic Vactrol

    I used a 3mm green that was diffused and these LDRs. I tried to fit them in heat shrink but it may not have kept all the light in or out. I connected a leg from each LDR and put that in the middle slot and then the other leg from each into the outside slots. I assume there is no correct...

    Need advice on new PCBs to order

    I've built around 15-20 PCBs from this site and have found some really good ones and also a few that didn't really do anything for me. I'm trying to build out a new pedalboard and right now I have a fuzz/distortion and a few modulations that I'm really happy with but looking to add a good delay...

    CDXL Classic Vactrol

    I know this had been discussed here before but has anyone had success finding the VTL5C4/2? I tried making my own by combining two LDRs and an LED, in a few variations, but haven't ever had success. The pedal turns on and works fine in bypass but when the pedal is engaged, with any combination...

    Arrow Boost (Amentum)

    Quarantine build number 6. Pretty basic one here and I had intended to combine it with another PCB but decided to just go ahead and box it up to add a simple boost at the end of my effects chain.

    Ben's Son Preamp (Son of Ben)

    Quarantine Build number 4. I had some trouble getting this one to work and this was the first PPCB that I've almost given up on but after some trouble shooting and help from the forum, I got it all boxed up. I wasn't getting sound when the pedal was engaged and that was because the audio jacks...

    Thanks!

    Son of Ben (no sound when engaged)

    I added cardboard and added solder to the parts in the sockets. Everything is now closed up in the box and works as it should. I think the exposed dual pot must have been the culprit. That plus the loose socketed parts. Thanks so much for the help!! Now I can add it to the build reports.

    Son of Ben (no sound when engaged)

    I'll try shimming some cardboard in and adding solder to the parts in the sockets. They aren't in there super tight but enough that they dont seem to fall out.

    Son of Ben (no sound when engaged)

    Well, turns out, I'm just an idiot. I put this together late at night and wasn't paying attention to the kind of tape I was using. I put duct tape on the back of the exposed pot and that was what was causing the issue. I rewrapped the pot in electrical tape, and now everything works! The audio...

    Son of Ben (no sound when engaged)

    This is after I tried adding some tape as a buffer. Long story short, I originally built this with an A500K pot in place of a A1M. It worked out of the enclosure but I didn't like the sound of the A500K. I swapped that with a B1M and was able to tweak it enough that I liked it. I boxed it up and...
