@Laika

I really like your simple, but elegant label on that boost. What did you use as a label?

Just something I knocked up in photoshop and got printed on gloss sticker paper at my local printer chain store.

Bravo. I love the designs that look like useful electronic devices, as opposed to toys, ya know what I mean? It looks really pro (in a good way).

Another Madbean mini build, the Cave Dweller. If you recognize the artwork you get a cookie*. I watched it over and over and over and over when I was little. Smiley

Maybe I'll put Artax on the Klone I'm building .... except I'm not particularly keen on keeping that one.

Built this up on a GGG PCB
Sounds really cool in the fuzz modes! Added a switch to bring C7 (4.7nF across E>B of Q3) which tames some harshness and mellows the highs, so essentially 4 different fuzz tones, and a treble booster.
The treble booster is quite harsh and barely starts at unity - so its really a boost.

I can see how this would benefit from some modern changes - ie change the esoteric treble boost to something more usable. But I wanted to build it to the vintage specs.

I added some of my own modern mojo - Bicolour LEDs for the modes, 9v DC power (original was battery only) and making it fit in a 1590BB.

This is going to go to a famous player for him to compare to his original unit for me and maybe make it onto his pedalboard - very excited!







Well worth looking into if you like your interesting fuzz tones.

Bicolor LEDs!

A couple I recently finished off ... A Tube Screamer with lots of mods (birthday gift for my Bro Smiley )

That is the most beautiful amazing thing I have seen! The Woolies battery just tops it off  icon_lol

Finally got all the parts together for Madbean's Cavedweller. Swapped out the standard 50kB 'Time' pot for a 100kB, thus doubling the delay time. I love this delay. It can go from subtle reverb to full on frozen clouds. I plan on ordering another pedals worth of parts to make another. Seriously one of my favorite digital delays that I've tried. It acts really, really analog which is awesome.

The screwed on plate is where I drilled a hole for an expression pedal input. And then I decided I liked it how it was.

My PEZ45 phaser, from Tonepad.  Very recently debugged with the help of deadastronaut, Govmnt_Lacky and R.G.  Thanks again guys.  (It was a dead pot...)

Todd, your Fuzz Gun etch is hella cool. Better looking graphics than the retail product. Would love to see it, and your box of awesome, as the diy community version in the "Graphics!" thread if you're so inclined. If not, just accept my compliments on your unique take on those pedals.

ST-9 based overdrive:
"Gain", "Tone", "Level": no comments.
"Fat" boosts +7db 200hz -> 2khz
"Style" switches clipping diodes (1n4148, 1n34, 1n4148+1n34, IRF540+1n34...)
"Boost" switch gives +6db on output, and more bass response.



I definitely should use led "clips"...

^^^Stunning as always John!!!

In the book 'rethinking acrylic' by Patti Brady there's a couple mentions of doing paper to paper  'wet' Toner Transfers using various acrylic mediums (even straight acrylic paint) as the means for transfer. Thought that if you can do paper to paper why not paper to enclosure. Had some Golden GAC 200 on hand and gave it a go. Did nine seperate transfers and abused them in various ways, wrapped them around corners, sanded with 120grit, went at them with an xacto knife, overly aggressive with the paper removal just extremely rough handling and for the most part they stood up pretty well, was even able to transfer lines software said were less then half a pixel in width. Were some left behind paper fibers (but not in the toner) that only showed up when i misted on a clearcoat, they stood up at attention. Used pretty messed up fonts so it's hard to tell but was getting 100% transfer and no distortion of toner like you might with a heat and pressure transfer. Have some refining of method to do but i see lots of potential for this.

Also tried it onto the back of clear acrylic where i got pretty good results. Should also work great as a means to 'silkscreen' the tops of pcbs.

Used satin Varathane as the clearcoat on the enclosure (1590G, really too shallow a size for regular sized jacks and 3pdt switches). No gut shots to show as there aren't any guts but i'm open to suggestions!

On youtube there are a lot of videos detailing this 'wet' toner transfer, usually referenced as 'image toner transfer'.
