Yep, Tayda has everything you need with the exception of the two C100K dual pots.

They do carry them, they're just out of stock at the moment.

so I really want to use the paddle switch, but no experience with square holes. any pointers here before I commit to ordering that faceplate?

Mr. PCB can you share the part list? so i can start to order them. thank you

I'll try to get it posted today or tomorrow.


Can I use L78L15, Silonex 7532 and 7371 lamp for this Vibe?

I used L78L15 because that's what other comparable vibes use. Chuck has mentioned (and is correct) that the 15V supply isn't quite high enough for the 15V regulator to actually do it's job and suggested as 12V regulator instead. (L78L12 would work fine)

I also used the 7371 lamp, but I used LDRs from Tayda for prototyping. The 7532 or 9203 are both most likely better choices.

I drilled all four corners with an 1/8" bit for reference then drilled a 1/2" hole in the center (starting with an 1/8" pilot hole).

Afterwards I squared it up with a square file from Harbor Freight. The whole (hole? :ROFLMAO: ) process took maybe five minutes. I was much easier than I expected.

Besides, with the faceplate it doesn't really matter if your cutout isn't 100% perfect.


@Bricksnbeatles suggested using a coping saw but I think for a hole this size the file works just as well.

I was wondering on the solder side, there are 2 pads labelled 1044. Do we bridge those if we are going to use the MAX1044 or is that for a 1M SMD resistor?

not sure about others but I printed out the picture of the PCB and went one by one writing down the components marking them off as I went
That’s how I did mine. Parts are arriving today, but my PedalPCB order is still in the mail. USA to Canada shipping is going super slow again lately :(

what lamp you used? I'd like to order all the parts from Tayda
I got one of each of the 3 lamps Tayda sells so I could see which one works best, although I don’t expect a big difference. Might build a little lamp tester to see how well each of them glow before my build. Canada Post tells me to expect my PCB to arrive on Wednesday and I’ve only got a half day at work so I’ll probably have it built that evening and maybe an idea of which lamp is best.
