DECIMATOR II G-STRING advice
« on: November 09, 2018, 12:47:28 AM »
i have the "that 2181c" chip   
few years  go  i used a layout i found floating around , but it didnt sound right, was a bit fizzy so i gave up on it.
ive seen some with dual opamps and some with quads?
since then ive come across various threads indicating i might have used an old and incorrect schematic.
any one here who has actually built the decimator or g string, advise what the correct schematic layout is, as i want to give it one more chance?
thank you in advance! :)

i can vouch for this guy's board and project, worked great right out of the gate once i learned to wrap my head around the weird way it hooks up...

the guitar goes to guitar in. guitar out goes to the input of your effects. return goes to the OUTPUT of your effects, out goes to your amp. its a brilliant piece of kit imho

you can run it in front of a fuzzface and it will still work right, cuz the guitar out is for all intents just a jumper from the guitar in jack.

here's the build doc, and this one is good and works

I built  the Version 1 using  Sabro's layout. There's a G- string addon and after I figured out the connection, like  Jimi says, it works really well.  But thanks for the v2  info, J0K3RX!   Did you make a pcb?
