Distortion+ in 1590A

Simple circuit + small box = fun, fun, fun!
12mm Alpha pots fit side by side.
Vintage bypass with LED ;)
Stock GGG layout.

Sounds great! I love it. I was surprised that it can get clean.
At max volume and min dist setting it sounds like unity gain compared to bypass.
The dist control goes up from clean all the way to super-fuzz with some great overdrive in-between.
I'm hooked on the Dist+, gotta build another one or two with mods.
Thanks to Mark Hammer for all the great posts on the Dist+ and SWTC.

Awwesome.  I'm just crazy about the little 'uns.  Good call on braving the "tonesucking" too.  Beautiful work.

I decided to go ahead and take out the Russian Parts and replace with what I considered better parts that I had in my stash. Also, I didnt really like the black w red lettering. I wanted something more soothing so I sanded and repainted.

Another one!! I build this one for a friend to test it and buy it if he likes the sound!  :icon_smile:
It's an opamp (OPA227) Overdrive with soft clipping diodes. I paint it with the same color as the BMW 318I of my dad  :icon_lol:. I presently don't have knobs :(.

That Frequency Analizer is AWESOME!

Wish I had one like that, How did you finish the box, Is it printed or sticker?

Is that the original or remake?

Thanks! I think it is the remake. It was quite a chore getting it into a 1590J box. Box is polished aluminum. Graphics done on white stick on inkjet paper. Here are a few shots of the project:

Mosfet Booster and UglyFace


This one is a gift for a guy that has helped me get my effect building thing going here... he named the pedal after a Minus the Bear song...

All props to the designers are written on the clear insulators on the inside of the box...
big thanks to Mr. Orman and Mr. Escobedo..these things sound great.

Here's my modded rev. C Crybaby.  I stripped the whole thing and painted the base "Sparklescent Porn Star Pink" (I didn't name it - that's what it's called).  It's hard to see the color but in the light it looks great.  I sanded and polished the top then clear coated it.  After all the mods I had made the board was pretty hacked up so I made a new one with some trimmers (set to the values I liked) so I can easily tinker with it some more.  Thanks to Bancika for the great layout software.

Stumper,

Nice wah, where do you get your PCB pins and headers from? I could only find ones from maplin, which are a bit crap, the one on your wah board looks pretty solid.

AdamB -

  I get mine from www.esr.co.uk - they have a couple of styles and spacings, pins, headers, shrouds etc and are reasonably priced.

It's just the stock one.  Was kind of a pain to remove from the old board but worked out ok.

Lots of folks playing around with multi-effect in one box.
So here's mine.

Last month I put five boosters temporaraly into one box
http://www3.telus.net/david65/pedal-pics/Superbooster-front.JPG
Fetzer, AMZ Mini-booster, Stratoblaster, Brian May Trebble boost and Range Master.
After playing around with those five I came up with two booster combination that made sence to me.

The first is a combo Mini-booster and Brian May Tebble booster. I like how these two sound inseries and individualy.
So I mounted them with a 3PDT footswitch and DPDT toggle.
This gets me...
With toggle up; the footswitch select between bypass or Mini-booster
With toggle down; the footswitch selects between bypass or Mini-booster in series with Treble booster.
This isn't what I was after but it's what I got.

The paint is kinda cool Krylon Mystic Prism. As close to a metal flake finish as you can get in a spray can.
It has irredecent glitter, but it dosn't show in the photo.



The second booster combo is the Fetzer Valve and Stratoblaster.
The Stratoblaster struck me more of a unity gain buffer than a boost. It sounds great with it's pot set at min.
So I mounted them both in one box with NO bypass. Footswitch selects between Fetzer (with knob) and Stratoblaster.
The Stratoblaster's pot is just crammed into the box but I'll get around to fixing that.
With my growing chain of true bypass DIY pedals I need a buffered booster at the top of the chain so I can kill the boost without going into capacitance tone suck mode. Pic is not much but the you all should get a laugh at the cram job. I didn't even trim the power leads in case I wanted to put it back in the SuperBooster box. Can you spot the pot inside?
