so, just socket the damn transistors and swap 'em around til it sounds good.
this looks like it may be an interesting sound with the right transistors, but *ANY* ac176 sure ain't gonna work.
i don't see how you can "re-add" bass tho. once you take them frequencies away you can't get 'em back. just like an mp3. once it's gone, you can't replace it. just doesn't work like that.
you MAY get sub harmonics added in, but that's not the same as bass frequencies.
what kind of amp did you test this with?
it may sound GREAT thru a ruby or small amp, but how will it hold up at stage volume? i build all kindsa ridiculous shit just to try it, and it often sounds great at low volume...
but until i try it thru one of my live rigs at real volumes, i don't really know what it sounds like... small amps homogenize the shit out of tones. what may sound great at a high gain thru a low volume amp often don't fly so well in real life use.
believe me, i've built a LOT of stuff... most sounds great quiet. get on stage, and well, that's not necessarily the case.
can you post examples? video/audio?
and original design?
it's a mis-biased emitter follower to my eye, the fuzz face it's modeled on was the original.
what you seem to have done to my newb eyes is take a fuzzface, and misbiased it into a clean booster.
i like to run my collectors at higher voltages too, but this is only gonna work with some transistors....
can you post their gains and voltages? be curious to look at.
it's almost like ya wired the emitter follower like a cathode follower. cool.
but straight b+ to the collectors is gonna be a little weird.
btw...as for artifus?
dude, you are dead @#$%in' wrong.
like to say welcome to the forum... but YOU gotta understand, you're gonna get constructive criticisms, sometimes props, sometimes flops...
and getting pissy, even in jest, isn't gonna get ya a lot of friends here. this isn't harmony central with people trolling and shit. none of us will tolerate that crap.
we're all in this together.
enough of that shit...
welcome, dude and thanks for sharing!
