The urge to solder led me to use my last 6x10 piece of perfboard to make a LPB-1, while waiting for the supplies :p



I've added a 2M2ohm shunt resistor and changed the input capacitor from 100nF to 47nF, to let less low frequencies reach the 3904. If anyone is interested, here's my layout:

:)

It is impossible to have the words "beer" and "Heineken" on the same cap!  ;)

Lol dudes! That bottle top was the first thing I saw on my desk to make the circuit stand properly for taking pictures! :D

You should have used a Moretti cap instead (Italian beer)
PS what's wrong with Heineken?! I like it!

I like Heineken too, but speaking about italian beers, nothing compares to Menabrea, IMO. Pedavena rulez too, btw! :D

Hey, sorry about the off topic, but does anyone knows Eric Sardinas? I've seen him live and loved the trick he does with the bottle of beer! Check him out:

First off all. I'm new here. Been through almost every page of this topic and now I decided to upload my builds.

My very first; the infamous 5 knob fuzz f.


with knobs and in action:


My second build; a Dr Boogey. The knobs I bought didn't fit the pots so it's still without knobs...




gutshot:


Third; another Fuzz f


guts:


And my latest. A tube cricket






So... that's all for now.

Ocfug - That Cricket looks great. Has an awesome vintage look to it.
If it ain't broke...   ...it will be soon.

Lovepedal Purple Plexi clone. I haven't received the enclosures i ordered yet...

I made a few mistakes here:
1 - Ended up putting the dc socket on the opposite side of what i wanted  >:( dammit!
2 - Forgot to connect the VCC to the J201 on the millenium bypass  >:( dammit! dammit!
3 - Got the idea from someone here to paint the board before soldering, made the soldering a nightmare. And it only looks a bit better. Next time i'm either not painting it, or i'll paint over the soldered thing.

Well... i think that's it. It's my first pedal with everything on board. Makes it a lot more work, but not having to do the wiring is great.

Oh, and it sounds great!

The build style looks just like the new mxr stuff. Inspiration?  ;)

The only pedal I have that i haven't made is a Boss DD-7. I have seen the guts of Some pedals around the web, but mostly old stuff. So i guess i was influenced by a lot of stuff, but not specifically MXR.

Ocfug, I like that tube cricket! Nice builds :icon_biggrin:

Here's my last.. hoping Jacob (jkokura) and that little man... hmm.. "jacobyd".. strange name, well.. hoping that they get this design..

It's a Dr. Boogey and OCD in the same box, it's the second I build after THIS ONE.





Regards,
Fernando.-

......how did i get stuck posting after slade ???, oh well....here's my first attempt at a completed pedal, im pretty proud of it. it's a purple peaker, modified for bass, similar to the yellow humper.  the high frequency boost sounds a little odd to my ears, but the low sounds nice, and paired with the high gives a nice mid scoop. the graphic looks much better in person, it looks very odd with the way the lighting is, you cant see the bubbles either


having leftover parts is just proof that you made it better!!!!

just completed this "foxx ultimate octave machine".. it's my second one, this one has some mods and fixes to stuff i didn't like about my first.
made some changes to the filter-section and added a 'pregain' so i don't have to fiddle with the volume knob on the guitar..

finish on this one? no use trying.. RIGHT SLADE?
seriously slade, your effects always look awesome!

take care / Jonas

Slade, I liked your previous design just fine--I was just being goofy :)

This one, though, is one of my favorites out of all your designs so far. Well done!
