Yes, Gus' circuit will be cool. I already have some info ready on it.

Thanks

I'd love to get in on this.  I am in the process of building my first pedal, but it's not going all that well.  This will definately be a great help.

Count me in! I actually just purchased some parts for an LPB1 tonight. I'd be all over whatever pedal everyone would like to build.

Hi...This is just the chance I was looking for.  I just asked this very question on HCFX, and lo and behold.  Count me in.

I'd like to do this too. So far I've only done projects that are basically "kits" using ready to solder pcb's. Count me in. I'm hoping to learn more about how these effects tick.

I'm interested. I've built two pedals already, but they were using pre-made PCB's. I'd like to learn how to use perfboard.

I was gonna build a Ross compressor for my first stompbox, but this sounds like just the ticket to get my feet wet.

Great idea aron and thanks!

I would like to try a test where a bunch of newbies and I will get together "online" to build our first _very simple_ pedal.

It will be either an LPB1 or Gus Smalley's NPN Boost.

I just need to know how many people are interested in this.

We will use "stock" parts and perfboard.

Let me know by replying to this thread.

Hi,

i dont think I'm a rare Newbee anymore, but i am interested in the Gus Smalley's NPN Boost. I Found a Schematic Handdrawn on the net, and I am interested in a readable Schematic.
Or has someone compared it to the LPB yet?
I'm very satisfied with my LPB, that boosts the PreAMP from Clean into a fat crunch.

OK
bye

The NPN boost is pretty amazing in that the more you turn the drive up, the smoother and more distorted it gets.

I want in too.

I want to get in on this.  I just put up a post asking what a newbie like me should build.  But im probably the newest out of everyone, but would love to learn.

Aron:

I drew up a nice clear schematic for Gus's NPN Boost. If you want to use it, let me know and I'll eMail it to you.

I would like to participate.  I'm especially interested in how to interpret schematics and the pointers that you have regarding layout on the perf board.  This will be very cool.  Thanks.

Yes Aron this is an excellent idea, I've really only built a couple of things like FF's etc and I alway's seem to have problems getting them to work first time so any help at all would be great and it also means I might get something to work at the first attempt plus reading schematics is not really a strong point for me

I'm pretty green myself, with just a Green Ringer built on JD Sleep's PCB, and a Ge FF and Rangemaster on perf. One thing that might be really useful in the long run would be a how-to on breadboarding whatever circuit is chosen. I know I should be able to figure this out myself, but...
