Title: Dr Boogey ... debugged and great !
Post by: MartyMart on January 26, 2006, 03:20:03 PM
Bit more de-bugging today, I built "Dr Boogey" a while ago and only had
"flat out" distortion with some "Splatty" decay, I found a mis-wire around Q4
and also a "dead" 1M gain pot !
It's now sounding fantastic, I removed Q5 and the tone stack for now, its stock
up to Q4 then 27n cap with 15k/2n2 ground X2 network to 100k vol pot ( ROG sim style )
Very nice high gain tones with good gain range, mid boost and sparkle also.
I may add back a tone control at some point ...
Thanks to electriclabs for another nice amp sim :D

Marty.

Nice.  I haven't tried that one yet.  Heck, I haven't had much time to build much lately. *sigh*

i recently was prodding inside mine, and discovered some green patches on my copper traces. the trimpot for Q3 also no longer works...

this disturbs me.

back to re-de-bugging. sigh.

No, Drain has 27n then 15k series then 2n2 to ground then 15k series then another 2n2 to ground then vol pot lug 3

Gate is input

Source has the 1k8 and 1uf to ground as the schem.. Q4

sorry, tried the "drawing" thing and it was too screwed up !!

Tone stack and Q5 omitted

MM.

Thanks for the kind words Marty
glad you like it...
well i like the way you altered the circuit
imo these sims are built like preamps more than dist pedals...if someone would want them as dist pedals he should probably do a mod like you did
well i have built some other emus. In most of them i prefer a fixed eq or much better a-one tone pot (bm type with different values)
just a hint if you remove eq and pres and add the tone circuit from brown sound in a box2 and dual lowpass then you get a GREAT SOUND

i'm on the road--so the best i can do is be a "virtual" fx builder.  :icon_confused:  so i "built" dr. boogey.  because folks leave out tone stacks, like marty did, or switch them, like electrictabs did, i experimented with keeping most of the tone stack off board.  my thought was that this would make mods easier.

fwiw here are my layouts.  they aren't verified but i am pretty confident they are right.  i did them in eagle and that means i just have to get the schem right.  so if anyone wants to work from these, i am posting my schems, too.  the idea in the version without the tone stack is to the "fly" the parts in the way you might mod your guitar or commerical amp.

dr. boogey minus tone stack layout (http://home.comcast.net/~gaussmarkov/gm_DrBoogeyLayoutNT.png)

electrictabs:  thanks for the circuit!  i hope i can have your blessing on posting this stuff.  if not, let me know and i'll unpost.  i'm looking forward to a real build. :icon_biggrin:

Connoisseur of Distortion:  i hope you get that thing working.  you deserve it!  thanks for your reports.

martymart:  thanks again for clarifying.  i used your approach to removing the tone stack.

if anyone does find a mistake or verifies a layout, please let me know and i will make appropriate changes.

Post by: deadastronaut on December 06, 2010, 06:38:13 AM
look at martys answer above...i was going to do this to mine and make the tonestack switchable...

ive never seen an actual stackless board...oh wait i think i saw someone squeezed a stackless one in a 1590a...

believe it or not...dont remember who though...it was in the pictures thread i think...a while back...

There was a non tonestack version at Gausmarkov.

Regards Askwhos post sort of... I'd quite like to add a tone stack like that found on the 'Pocket Metal Muff' by Electro Harmonix to this... rather than having knobs, it's just a fixed tone stack with a 3-Way Mid Switch for Scooped, Flat & Hump.

What would be the best and simplest way to implement something like this? Just adding a Big Muff Tonestack with a trimmer instead of the knob and a cap switch or is there a better way to go about it, that could cost me some low end or treble due to its see-saw like action and a Baxandall is starting to add too many parts to get her all on a 1590B PCB with board mounted pots with room for battery nicely... I suppose just putting fixed resistors inplace of the Bass & Mids of the normal three way tone stack would work but then i'd need to add the 5th transistor back in.

Any ideas?

hi scruffie, on the original post by marty, he says about the 27n 15k etc...is this some sort of tone mod?..(as he says ROG sim style?)
i have a boogie on my desk now and have a croc clip from Q4 straight to the vol pot and it seems ok..
also would a pot from the caps he suggested to ground act as a tone?..just thinking aloud..!

so is it added as part of a cab sim?...or can this be left off....?
Title: Re: Dr Boogey ... debugged and great !
Post by: Brymus on December 07, 2010, 05:32:31 PM
I think thats been added to round off the sharp high end.
Kind of a ballpark spkr simulator.
It would be simple enough to add it then bypass it on the breadboard to see which you like better.

i can't really get the picture of it.. mmmhh so trimmer BMP tone stack then no knobs? just trimmer? then a 3 way mid scoop spdt switch to choose which mid? am i correct? can make some simple schematics out of it?

its as it is on the schematic..., he just added the 27n, 15k's etc.....

leave them off if you like...or build it as is...

if you have the normal boogie...just use a toggle to turn off the stack from Q4 to the volume..

get ya croc clips out... :icon_mrgreen:

Here we go, I did a PCB Layout for this to fit a 1590B with Onboard Pots (Mounted on back of the board) With the Big Muff Tone Stack (Trimmer rather than Pot, Could wire a pot up though, or use a Trimmer Knob).

Values as Follows For it
TR5 - 1M
R15 - 4.7k
C19 - 6.8n
C20 - 6.8n

Change R16 Between
10k - Scooped
47k - Flat Mids
100k - Mids Hump

The Rest of the Values Follow the Schematic Earlier in the Thread.

Board Measures 53.34 x 53.34mm

If anyone wants to etch me one, I wouldn't say no  :icon_mrgreen:

nice one scruffie,

i'd have a tone pot i think....looks good ...obviously not verified going by your pcb request, :icon_wink: but as good as....

am gonna have to make a big muff tone control,just to hear what its like...

in fact i was going to build a whole bunch of different tsc tone controls in a big box , just to compare with different stuff.....a tone factory if you like...

but hey thats yet another mission to do..hmmmm..oneday...when i get my legs working again.... :icon_mrgreen:

Well I made it cause to me the Big Muff Tone Control is set and forget it's such a see saw motion it's only right in one place with your amp and the 3 way switch option lets you go for that scooped, flat or mid sound depending on bedroom or actual gig.

You can buy knobs that stick in trimmers if you want that option, I can also rework the layout if you want

Nah it's not verified, I can't etch at all, but I make layouts for stuff I want specifically (I love onboard pots and no stand up resistors plus 1590Bs) and also it helps me practice for the big layouts like my EHX Attack Decay PCB i'm doing next hehehe  :icon_mrgreen:

Regards Tone Stacks, My Favourite is the Baxandall, You can get any combination needed with that in my opinion, I only went with the big muff here for space and to get the mids control.

What soft did you use to create the pcb? Could you send me the project files?

And btw - any suggestions on wiring a SPDT switch for changing R16 between those 3 values?
Or should I just wire a 100k lin pot (in series with 10k resistor)?

Express PCB, I can send you the files if you want yes, PM me.

You need an On/Off/On switch middle would be 10k other side 37k (Or Closest value) other side 90k (Or Closest value)

Edit: Crap they would be in parallel wouldn't they so 100k in the middle, 100k on one side and 10k on the other.

she got me the press only..which will only take a dremel drill....arghhhhhhhhhhhh..what a bastard!....and it looks rubbish..plasticy...going to ebay it.. :icon_rolleyes: (this was my face xmas day> :-\

i have a minicraft drill which is excellent anyway, so ive been looking for a minicraft drill press...i found one online..around 40quid, and it will fit any mini drill..

i wish women would ask what tools you would like...arghhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh.....

back to doing my pcbs on my table again...for now... :icon_rolleyes: :icon_mrgreen:

she got me the press only..which will only take a dremel drill....arghhhhhhhhhhhh..what a bastard!....and it looks rubbish..plasticy...going to ebay it.. :icon_rolleyes: (this was my face xmas day> :-\

i have a minicraft drill which is excellent anyway, so ive been looking for a minicraft drill press...i found one online..around 40quid, and it will fit any mini drill..

i wish women would ask what tools you would like...arghhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh.....

back to doing my pcbs on my table again...for now... :icon_rolleyes: :icon_mrgreen:

just to top off my xmas day, she bought me call of duty black ops, which my pc wont run...ha ha...merry f*****g xmas... :icon_mrgreen:
Aww  :( Well atleast you got something! I didn't get anything  :(

I think i've seen those before, almost bought one but realised it wouldn't be much use, nice to know I didn't waste my time.

You need an On/Off/On switch middle would be 10k other side 37k (Or Closest value) other side 90k (Or Closest value)

Edit: Crap they would be in parallel wouldn't they so 100k in the middle, 100k on one side and 10k on the other.
Um, well... I'll just put it as a pot ;p A 4-knob distortion to share enclosure with diy Tech21 XXL ;]

4-Knob? Where's the 4th coming from? It's not that complicated to do the switch though if you want I can help you.

E-mailed you the files now anywho.

Gain, Tone, Level, and... let's say Scoop? Or maybe Contour? I can handle wiring the switch, but this way (with the pot) it can be more versatile, don't you think? If it fails, maybe I'll just use rotary switch. ;p

Are you planning on implementing a Contour mod a-la the BSIAB2?

I don't know how it's done in BSIAB2, but I'm going to
Change R16 Between
10k - Scooped
47k - Flat Mids
100k - Mids Hump
using a pot.
I bet it's almost the same way in BSIAB2, but I heard it's not free of 'bugs' there.

In case someone omited that, here is the ready-to-print PCB for Dr. Boogey with BMP tonestack in PDF version:
http://www.megaupload.com/?d=Z5JHOEPX

I'm making it sooner or later.

I recently built the BSIAB2 with the Contour mod and I must say that I am quite pleased with it. The only problem I have is that you MUST adjust the Volume & Gain pots to get an output. (This is in the original circuit.... not just with the Contour mod) I really dont like this but, it is not worth the hassle to figure out a work around. All-in-all a GREAT PEDAL with the mod though.  ;D

Is the layout verified?

Well, I bet 'contour' is not always the same. If it was a simple 'mid' controler it wouldn't deserve to be named in other way ;p
But yes, most 'contour' controls I met were just adjusting some of the mids ;) In my previous amp, the Marshall MG 50DFX, it just acted like a reversed middle pot with a bigger freq range. Contour on 0 - kinda rock/country sound. Contour on 10 - ultra satan scoop.

Is the layout verified?

No, it isn't for now. But it's a matter of time. Even I'm planning to build (and by the way verify) that thing, but someone other may do it first.

;D Thankk youuu  ;)

Yeah that's true, for the inline trimmers, i'd use the cermet ones at the bottom of this page - http://www.bitsbox.co.uk/resistors/presets.html
or http://www.doctortweek.co.uk/shop/catalog/browse?shop_param=shop_overview_pager%3D2%26cid%3D34%26

For the Tone Knob Trimmer, Me personally i'm gunna stick fixed resistors in its place but you need one of those Square Horizontal type or the type futurlec stock - http://www.futurlec.com/PotTrim.shtml

I could and might alter the layout to allow for other trims though... if there's space.

Edit: Futurlec Stock Both Kinds needed http://www.futurlec.com/PotRect.shtml

Here we go, I did a PCB Layout for this to fit a 1590B with Onboard Pots (Mounted on back of the board) With the Big Muff Tone Stack (Trimmer rather than Pot, Could wire a pot up though, or use a Trimmer Knob).

Values as Follows For it
TR5 - 1M
R15 - 4.7k
C19 - 6.8n
C20 - 6.8n

Change R16 Between
10k - Scooped
47k - Flat Mids
100k - Mids Hump


Apologies if I'm overlooking the obvious, but is there a schematic for the above tone section? Also, 1M tone pot? :icon_eek:

Ok, I'll engage brain before posting:
R15 + 6n8 = LPF, R16 + 6n8 = HPF, 1M tone pot blends. Correct?

TIA

Nah no schematic, I just tacked on a Big Muff TS where the Tonestackless schematic left off.

Use whatever values you want, I changed those in the end, can't recall what to at the moment.

Aha! Found what I used -
R16 (Switchable)
Scooped - 4.7k
Flat - 22k
Hump 47k

DPDT On/Off/On 47k Center, 47k One Side, 4.7k Other

C19 22n
R15 22k
C20 22n
Trim 100k Lin

That Clear It Up? And Yes you're right in your assumption of HPF & LPF.
Title: Re: Dr Boogey ... debugged and great !
Post by: Scruffie on May 26, 2011, 10:55:13 AM
Right... back with a proper build report on this one...

The Good news, it sounds great and there is no oscillation at any setting I could find, i'm not too keen on the multi turn trimmers for biasing by ear as they take alot of turns but that's a minor gripe and it sounded pretty nice at most settings anyway, perhaps not as heavy as a full stacked version because of the lack of tone shaping but still really nice.

Changes I would make would be to add a small cap across R15 so that you don't loose all the treble when you roll the tone stack down to the bass side and I do find the 3 way toggle to be pretty handy for different situations as it helps make up for that lack of tone shaping control.

The Bad news... there are 3 fixes needed to my layout (I'll update the layout and repost it here later, i'm going to add one or two things to it anyway).
If you built the first version you need to -

a) The easiest one, cut the trace connecting C2 & C3 and then connect the end you just cut of C2 to the Other side of C3.

b) Cut the Trace between C8 & R10 and then connect the now cut end of R10 to the other side of C8

c) The most complex fix (Not that hard though) Cut the trace going from the input up to Q1 Source (Leaving in tact the trace that runs from the source to R2 & C1) Remove C13 and Jumper Over it, then place C13 across the Gate and Source of Q1

And that's all that's required! (I say it like that, my board is now a mess of jumpers and lifted traces... but that was my own fault).

As my post above, I quite like that tone stack in this, of course you can forego the tone stack and just jumper from R14 to VOL Lug 3 (Hmm... perhaps adding a tonestack disengage switch could be a useful mod... if there's room i'll add pads on the new layout.

One last thing, it gets very tight on spots on the layout, so don't do what I did and have to keep lifting up the board mounted pots to get underneath to fix things cause that's how you end up with a bunch of lifted traces  :icon_redface:

Thanks again for Rob for providing me with my late christmas present  :icon_mrgreen: and sorry for taking so long to get this build report up.

Conclusion... awesome little pedal and in a 1590B!
Title: Re: Dr Boogey ... debugged and great !
Post by: Scruffie on May 30, 2011, 12:21:51 PM
Okay, ive redone the layout now to include pads to either have the tone stack switchable in and out of the circuit, to bypass it or you can just jumper them and have the tone stack in at all times.

I've also corrected the errors, changed the box cap 1uFs to Electros (Sod ordering special box caps) made a couple of places a little less tight and added in a shelve filter cap for the tone control so when you roll the bass down you don't loose all the highs.

Now... how do I upload PDFs...

How do you wire something like that?
A 3-Way DPDT, The middle position is always connected so with a resistor either side they add in parallell so you work out the middle value plus the other sides value to see what they would equal, the middle should always be the largest value (with resistors, caps work the other way) so you have 47k center, you add 47k on the other side and you get close enough to 22k, other side you have a 4.7k and you end up with close enough to 4.7k.

Make sense?

If so, I suggest you to send the file(s) here: http://www.mediafire.com/ It's simple, everything is shown.
I'm getting back to DIY, so I'll soon be able to see how the circuit works.
