send me your email address and I'll send you my address if you can mail me a CDB board.
Hi, I'm a new member here, though have been building pedals for years. Back a while you did a trace of the Vertex Boost. Any chance you still have and can forward me the schematic? Many thanks, John
Greetings! I'm in over my head, I've done ZERO research, I have unreasonable expectations, and I've come to ask you all to Google my unformed uninformed questions for me.
Greetings, Searched around and you seem knowledgeable on "Cry Baby" builds. Put together a "Tear Jerker" & it's clean. Set with dip switch 6 on (been told like the original).

Sounds great but in bypass if I move away from heel down I get an insane air raid siren sound.

Any idea why that would happen in bypass?

I know the original had a lot of tone suck issues in bypass..

Help would be much appreciated.
Not sure how to post a pic but I can send, wouldn't let me send a Google photo link.

Hey. Saw your post... Did you ever get your Teensy-controlled tap tempo working? I'm pursuing a similar pedal using a SAMD21 and was curious how difficult it was overcoming the problems PPCB pointed out (calibration / lookup tables to make it accurate).
No such thing as too much fuzz I say as I place another order of 5 fuzz boards
fig mom always said if you play too much fuzz your face will....wait...if you fuzz your, no that's not it either...oh well fuzz on!

Really i just wanna finishing my DOD250. Problems linking jack stereo e mono and wiring 3pdt switch get me crazy! anyone has the beginner solution for it (question mark).
Just ordering my first PCB’s! Can’t wait to get started!
Wondering if there are any recommendations on something else that might be an easy one to start off with?
The Son of Benson is a great one.
I'd start off with a board with a low parts count and inexpensive components.

How experienced are you at soldering? What's your build set-up?
Many fuzzes tend to have a low number of parts. I would maybe look there.

If you haven't soldered much just take your time. It took me a little while to get good at it. I tend to use thinner solder for PCBs from here and that works well for me.
