adding diodes to the boost
« on: March 06, 2007, 12:47:37 PM »
If I wanted to add some clipping diodes to the Smalley Boost, do I put them before or after the 10uf electrolytic capacitor? Where would they be best?

You can try them right after the capacitor. Let us know how it sounds.

Anyone given this a try? Any other ideas on giving this design a bit more gain (not the clean variety)?  :icon_lol:

put two of them in series (one after the other!)
