Title: First name
Post by: aron on May 11, 2007, 08:03:15 PM
Hey guys,

We are trying new something here. Please put your first name and last initial in the personal text section of the profile.

Profile->Forum Profile Information->Personal Text

If you are very active in this forum, I think it will help and it would sure be nice to know your names!

Some of us have already started so go for it.

I guess I was brought up in the early 90s world of semi-outlaw computing where you didn't want people to know your real name (anybody remember the BBS community?).  Then I joined the military, where in survival school they googled us and then used the information in their mock interrogations.  They didn't get anything on me, though, because of my programmed paranoia.

That said, I hate my moniker.  It was chosen years ago with no foresight, and now I can't seem to shake it.  I am happy for you folks to know my name, and think this is a neat idea.

Thats where I got the name from, my friend!  My girlfriend was setting up my first email account, and I told her to use Cobretti.  But it was taken so she added the T to the beginning, which I would never have done because it ruins the "joke", I would have just figured something else out.  But now here we are 10 years later and I still use it.

OK, I finally took a minute to add mine. Because my screen name sounds like a real name, some may have thought it was my real name, except for the few people here I've bought stuff from.

Pointless story about the origins of the name: my friends had/sometimes still have a, um, let's call it a "parody" metal band called Skinny Dick and the Wranglers. Everybody in the band had to have a bluejeans-themed name like Levi, Osh Kosh, Gap etc. I did a few gigs with them on sampler and turntable, adding humorous (I thought) sound effects and bits of movie dialog (name the reference: "He hates these cans!"). I chose as my stage name Tommy Hilfiger, which was meant to be a social comment about consumer culture.  :icon_rolleyes: Ah, youth...

Anyhow, it morphed into Tommy Jeans and then tommy.genes, Audiogenetic Engineer, which is where it stands today.

Dave, you should read the book(s). I think I have read the Hitchikers Guide at least six times.

I once bought the BBC radioplay on casette tape on a trip to England (pre-internet trade era), but I have heard that it is not the original background music compared to the radio show.

Regards

Carsten

Thanks, Jim.  Thanks for the suggestion Carsten, but I'm not sure when I would get around to reading something like that.  I still haven't made it through my 12th grade reading list.

hey Alessandro (aka ZeroTheHero)
bello sapere che c' un altro italiano a cui piacciono i GONG
Intendo i primi GONG (Camenbert Electrique, AngelsEgg, You) :-)
sorry to all for this italian intermission
Ho letto solo ora! Tutto il filone Canterbury forse il mio genere preferito, prova a sentire qualcosa degli "Hatfield and the north"...
Ciao!

Quote
Hehe...
Italians and prog-rock. Why does you guys have such good taste?
Thanks! So, let's listen some "Premiata Forneria Marconi","Area" and "Banco del Mutuo Soccorso"'s records!
Although I prefer UK and Canterbury scene, I can't stop listening to PFM early records.
Well, I'm hooked on Le Orme at the moment.  There is just something very gloomy with that Italian prog. No wonder Van der graaf generator were such a hit in Italy..

After a week or so on this forum, I noticed that everyone here seems to know each other and be on good terms with each other.

I feel like I should introduce myself!

My name is Chris. Not J. Kowalski! Everyone always asks if im polish. James Kowalski is the driver from the movie "Vanishing Point" which I highly suggest you see if you have not already! I'm 17.

I play guitar, bass, and drums, re-learning keyboard (forgot almost completely how to play after a couple years of lessons and a 5 year break!), learning violin, and dabble in all kinds of other instruments.

Decent experience in electronics, not content with simply pedal building but interested in learning the subject as a whole.

Also learning woodworking (built one guitar, one in the works and one planned and ready).

Love artwork - painting, scribbling, etching guitar pedals!

Great forum.

Hi all,

Karl Vivary here from Molten Voltage.  We are in central Oregon and got into the pedal business last August after spending a few years learning how to build.

We just joined this forum recently after Steve from Smallbear turned us on to it.  He posted information about a new chip of ours.

This forum is endlessly entertaining and I find myself laughing out loud just about every time I log in.  We like to mix things up, but you can be sure it's all in good fun!

Thanks for all the positive feedback and the criticism too!  Why test the water when you can jump right in!

What a heartwarming thread.
Perfect place for my inaugural post
Im in Denmark, but I'm english, so if I misspell something it's just because I'm a moron  :icon_wink:

What a great forum. I've only been building about 3 months but in that time I think I've read and soldered through 50% of the time I should have been eating or sleeping. My apartment is full of old VCR/amp pcb's, my desk is now a workshop and I'm installing a box oven and acid bath in a weatherproof cabinet on my balcony. Since I build theatre sets for a day job I'm pretty much building myself to death.
Wish I had found your DIY FAQ to begin with! Would have saved me a lot of time.

Since this forum has taken the unusual and refreshing step of becoming personal, I'd like to ask you all a personal question. What do you get out of this box building madness? Why do you do it? But perhaps that should be another thread.

Anyway, hello all.

hi,

this really is a great forum...very active and with a lot of very useful info...ive been around for a while just looking and trying to learn.

i take the opportunity to introduce myself: my name is Ruben and im from Colombia. Ive just started on the diy fever....it caught me really hard and totally replaced (well not totally) the horrible GAS ive been suffering from long ago. I still can't understand a lot of the electronic concepts or schematics but some things start to make some sense to me (opamp, clipping diodes, circuit, :P).

I started the hard way because the prices of kits (and specially the shiping quotes) are prohibitive for me, so i print and etch the layouts from tonepad and ggg, source the parts (smallbear/effects conection for 3dpt now) and follow the instructios.....its still a mechanical process to me, but being around here for a while starts to give me some more clarity.

To date ive build a big muff, a d+ and a ts-808.....all with tonepad instructions, dpdt and millenium bypass 2 and all sounding at the moment. ive had some issues with the ts millenium circuit (works very unstable....the led blinks at first and then just stop lightning until i take the guitar cable for a few moments and plugged again)..but i love the sound of that pedal...the big muff not so much...i could make some mistakes, i dont know but the sound is very fizzy. The d+ is sounding just ok...i used it mainly to see how that blue led shine (millenium 2 also but this works fine) and with the gain low...almost a clean boost....

 Im now in the process of build a ross compressor (tonepad), ds-1 (tonepad), guv'nor (tonepad) adn ts-808 with mods (ggg).

sorry for the long post and the bad english i hope i made some sense....

Hi all

It's nice to be in such good company.  Thanks to everybody for the stuff I've learnt so far, and the stuff I'm yet to pick up.

Completed a couple of builds (a scrambler and an orange squeezer/son of screamer hybrid) but I keep careering off on odd theory tangents and drawing a million diagrams of doofers that I'm going to do.....one day .  For the same reason, I haven't managed to finish redecorating the kitchen after three years.  Mrs Bee is so proud of me.

I'm a product designer by day, mostly designing furniture.  Anybody tried making stompboxes from aluminium composite?  It's as strong as ally, but you can cut it with a steak knife, and it's cheap as chum.  I love the stuff.

I introduced myself, but not in this thread. Please pardon me for the oversight...!
I got into pedal building and synth building at the same time. Keys are my main instrument- electric piano, organ, synthesizers. Also computer music, guitar, bass...

I play in the bands Strategy, Nudge, Fontanelle, Smoke & Mirrors, Sound People, and others, recording for labels like KRANKY and others

I've been doing DIY electronics for one year. My pedals built so far: orange squeezer, blue clipper, 4ms noise swash, maestro ring modulator, and stage center reverb!

I really appreciate all the help in this forum and the amazing knowledge !

I was looking for the "introduce yourself" thread.
If it was a snake I would've had myself a hat band...  :icon_eek:

The name is Eddy and I've been breadboarding/repairing/building since '93 or '94.
It all started when a friend of mine asked me to fix his Big Muff and I asked if I could borrow it to clone it.
He said yes and a spark started burning...

Fast-forward through a bunch of mods/repairs, 3 builds and many many more breadboarded to death until about 2001 or so when I had moved to a sleepy little town across the water from the hustle and bustle of Seattle, and so my business dropped off and other things became more important... like raising my kid, working full time, spending time with my wife, etc.

Now I'm itching for the smell of solder smoke and ferric chloride and hopefully I can make a few bucks off my creations somehow, somewhere.

it's about time i get this over with.

my names joe. i have been playing in metal bands for 15 years, and doing luthier work for 10 (non professionally). i have a surplus of time on my hands, nowhere near enough hobbies, and i hate paying for things that i could make with a little research.

i got an endorsement with madison amps recently and i dropped the friggin boat anchor rack system i was running, so i figured i would make some analog gear because everything out there is either overpriced or junk. my goal is to become proficient enough to make my own multi effect pedal board, and some quality pedals to sell for financing the habit.

Hey guys,

I've been a long time reader of this forum, but finally decided to take the plunge and get involved.

This time last year I'd never even held a soldering iron in my hand, then something snapped in my brain and I've been building ever since. I started with BYOC kits and have since just scooped up any PCB I can find and am moving on to perf-builds.

I've been getting more confident lately and am starting to try mods and what not, but understanding how all this works is still a little beyond the philosophy/art major in me at the moment.

I play mostly folky stuff, but love to run it through strange noise-boxes (just built an FSH-1).

Thanks!

Hey there folks, my name is Ken and I live in downtown Toronto, and have become obsessed with pedals in the past few months.
I don't even own a guitar, just a Yamaha keyboard from the 90s which I use to test out my boxes, but that doesn't translate any "touch-sensitivity" aspects. Hoping to get one soon, but I am quite broke (school).
Much like scruffy, my room is becoming cluttered with electronics I have busted open, waiting for me to harvest. Just this second I am staring at 3x BA4560 chips I need to ever so carefully desolder and figure a use for.

I wish I had known about this website around when it first cropped up, which would have put me back in highschool so many years ago when I DID have a guitar and an amp of my own (using roommates currently), but had no inspiration due to it's weak sound. Also my last name is Peddle, so it was an atrocity to not own a pedal.

So far I have built Gus's NPN boost (beginner project, I made a thread), have a working Smash Drive on breadboard, and an untested Si Fuzz Face awaiting jacks & transistor auditioning. Before I even did those, I had modified a DS-1 which helped build confidence in what I was doing.

Anyways, see you on the board if I ever have something to say.

Nice place to hang out. I've found some useful info here.  :icon_smile: First build project will be either a Orange Squeeler or a Big Muff. Won't be using any perfboards or PCBs (what are those?!?)   :icon_biggrin::icon_wink: , it'll be pure PTP. I've been making tube amps for for the past six years so I don't think there's going to be any major issues. It'll be nice to not have to worry about heater/filament wiring injecting noise into the audiosignal, for a change. :icon_lol:

Well ,I guess I m really late ,but I ll try to explain a bit more to compensate:

My name is E..... Jean-Marie and I live in the tiny state of Luxembourg,

between Belgium,France and Germany. I revived my interest of electronics in

2001 by buying jaycar kits ,which proved to by poorly musical with the exception

of a sinewave tremolo which I still use today. Then I bought a Dist + kit which I

could highly improve by doing a search in this marvelous place and a special thanks

to Mark Hammer not only for this pedal.  :)

Today I m more inclined to move to amp building ,because it s not so tiny(no Hammond A-box  :icon_mrgreen: )

I'll start with a F-champ kit and from there on I ll get (probably) somewhere in the future to my dream-sound.

I still will be building pedals ,just at a slow pace. Also a big thanks to the "heads" here (+10000 posts  ;) )

and of course to every contributor AND moderator that keep things running!

Regards Jean-Marie  8)

Hi everyone,

Patrick here from South Bend, IN. A drummer with a degree in mechanical engineering that started into modding by being the one in the band to fix all the broken gear.  Over time i'm learning more and more and becoming increasingly interested as I go along.  Working on a few small projects now, but mostly signal routing stuff. I haven't tackled any effects yet.

Hi everyone.  It's great that we have this thread as it helps personalize posting a little more. When responding to posts, it's nice to be able to call someone by their first name instead of using some of the "creative" handles.  I'm not picking on anyone, but it's nice to use a real name instead of having to type, "@Mr. Rat's Ass, check R3", or "Thanks for the advice, Puss Filled Maggot!" ;D

The only thing is, while we have some first names in this thread, it doesn't help when reading and responding to posts. The RAM in my brain's memory banks seems to be getting smaller as I get older. (http://www.thewatchforum.co.uk/public/style_emoticons/default/oldman.gif) Some of us have added our first name (or initials, or what our friends would call us) to our profile so that it shows up under our profile photo, or where the photo would be if there's no photo. To do this, go to your Profile and click on Forum Profile Information. Type your name where it says Personal Text and click Change Profile to save.

Anyway, this is just a request and I thought I'd throw it out there for those who wish to be addressed by their first name. :)

Sorry, got off topic there.

Thanks again for a wonderful resource here!
