OK. If I keep R28 at 1M5, and I were to install a trimmer pot for R27.... what value would you suggest? If 100 ohms is too low  ;D

1K might be a nice start...

The series pot (Threshold pot) is only 10KB. Should I try a 100K multi-turn trimmer in place of R27?

Better a 50k-100k pot instead of 10k...  :icon_wink:

EDIT:

What value are you using for the main threshold control? Increasing that from 10K up to 100K should help, if you haven't done that already.

I am using the called-for 10KB pot. I have read about using a 100KB in place of it but, I really wanted to stay "true to form" to the original if at all possible. It's not looking that way though  :-\ According to the factory alignment specs, there really is no "adjustment" for the Threshold level. It is basically a procedural op check with no reference as to what is next if the op check is BAD  ::)

Sweet looking build, BTW!

Thanks Charlie! Great board to work with makes it all possible  ;)

1K might be a nice start...

Might be worth a try. Swapping out the Threshold pot now will be a bit of work as it will require digging out the PCB to get to it. This is all crammed into a 1590DD  :icon_eek:

12 seconds!!! What took you so long? You're not even in BBD territory any more! :D

Yeah, "true to form" is a bit of a stretch with this circuit, anyway. I'm up to rev.5, and that's on top of all the previous "factory" revisions.

If it weren't for the hassle of disassembling your shiny new pedal, I'd still say that swapping in a 100K threshold pot would be your best bet.

There has been a bit of renewed interest in this circuit, lately, and there are a few things that could be updated in the documentation, too. Since I happen to be in the process of rebuilding/updating my website, I'm going to clean this stuff up, too. Might even have to order another batch of PCBs. 8)

Indeed! It sure would be interesting to know what the exact pot value was in the original AND re-issue versions of the A/DA Flanger  :icon_cool:

Let me know if you decide to do any small runs of the SAD1024 version  ;)

I really should get back to this too. Only have to wire it up and then keep my fingers crossed that it works :D

Performed a successful surgical operation last night!  ;D

Removed the 10K Threshold pot and replaced with a 100K.

Happy to report that the patient is fully recovered and that the patient reports an increased range of motion  8)

Definitely worth the risk!!  :icon_lol:

im about to build my second moosapotomus flanger but stuck on resistor 7
if you look at the above pic there are 4 holes in particular,
1 to the left of the "R" outside the  R7 Rectangle
the 2 holes within the R7 Rectangle  which are joined, and..
the hole on the right of the R7 Rectangle coming from the positive side of c5 can cap

where do i put resistor?   the 2 holes outside the R7 Rectangle?

On the schematic, R7 goes between pins 4 and 12 of IC2.  So, that means that the left lead of R7 is inserted to the left of where you see R7 indicated on the parts layout picture, and the right lead of R7 is inserted to the left of where C5 is indicated.  Happy flanging!

Hey all

Whats the best place to start troubleshooting if I have nothing at the output?

Ive got 7.5v at Vb (1/2 supply) and 15v ish on the main voltage rails to the ICs etc
I have LFO working, I have sound on various pins of the quad opamps... stumped.

Thanks

Hey Lace,

You might want to post a new debug thread with the applicable voltages from the "What to do when it doesn't work" thread.

Have you verified all your offboard stuff?

Get schematic, signal source, and audio probe/O'scope. Start probing at the output and work your way "backwards".
I know; sounds like the "simpleton" method. It does work however.
I do it like that but then again "simpleton" applies in my case...  ;D

Fixed. Output volume control was on the bit of perf that also connects to ground....IDIOT

haha
 
well at least it was an easy fix once I opened my eyes and mind

Ok, I'm back looking at tuning this in better, thanks to Charlie's excellent videos.
However, I'm not having much luck getting the frequencies tuned. I can obviously get one or the other but  no matter what I do one remains out of range.
I think the closest I came last night was 2.9 Mhz and 69Khz.
I checked the power supply and found I was a little low too - 14.55V on the output of the regulator. I will investigate the power issue tonight, but is there any chance these two things are related?
Any ideas?

Hi Aston,

Are you refering to the adjustment of TR4 and TR5? If so I believe that I have a fix for you.
I just designed a new fuzz circuit! It almost sounds a little different than the last fifty fuzz circuits I designed! ;)

Interested to hear what you have in mind, Larry.

Aston - Instead of trying to nail specific numbers, how does it sound to you? 2.9Mhz is kind of high for my taste. Personally, I don't hear much effect above ~2.5Mhz. But there is a lot still going on below 69.6Khz. So I usually tune the whole range down a bit anyway. Are you able to try something similar? IMO, the sound is more important than the numbers. 8)
