SKINWALKER Hi Gain Distortion.
« on: December 29, 2017, 06:12:47 PM »
My latest project: the ''SKINWALKER''

a nice hi gain chunky metal box.  :icon_twisted: :icon_twisted: :icon_twisted:

based on the spitfire mu-amp J201's setup but with added pregain, tonestack and a bass cut , and tone switches.

nice and chuggy, and most importantly very very quiet between chugs. heres a quick n dirty demo.  :icon_twisted:



i have had pcbs made for it, then found i just had to tack on a small cap to quell oscillation even when boxed. but hey, that's the hazards of breadboarding very hi gain stuff i guess :icon_rolleyes:..

anyway.. yep, its working pretty nicely...

Nice one! Sounds great from the video, as if the Spitfire had a fling with a peavey 5150. If I wasn't out of j201s and massively intimidated by a 6-pot 2-toggle build I'd be all over this and ordering a Pcb from you.

Soon man. Once I've sourced more jfets and had a think about how big an enclosure I'll need and time to set aside.  I like your Spitfire so much I think I've built three. This one certainly sounds more versatile, but seems it's fully in more extreme territory, though it's difficult to draw real conclusions from a YouTube video played through my phone with Xmas music playing in the background. 

Is the video sans-amp? Straight to board?

Cheers all the same Rob! Happy new year to you.
