Just as a suggestion; it's really helped me before if I printed out on paper the PCB layout I intended to use and tried to stuff the actual parts into the "holes" in the pads. This has a way of turning up little spacing problems for you.

Thanks R.G., I'll check it out. The problems I found were trace connections though, not spacing. I'd still like another set of eyes to check against the schems.

for the +35V. can't you just use a 18V laptop power supply with a voltage doubler? cheap and easy.

hi keppy,
yah, i'm in the us, in connecticut.
i don't mind a shorter spacing, can always stand resistors etc up. i would really appreciate it!
about how much would you need bro?
thanks!! :thu:

I'd say about $15 should do it. I use photosensitized boards, and it will take 3 of them to do two sets of boards for the Phase II. However...

I WILL NOT SELL ANY OF THESE BOARDS UNTIL SOMEONE ELSE CHECKS MY LAYOUTS AGAINST THE SCHEM!

I just found four separate mistakes glancing at my work. This, after I double-checked both layouts already. As I have no wish to take anyone's money in exchange for a non-working pcb, I'd really appreciate someone's independent verification that these appear likely to work.

Here are the corrected layouts:




I`ve spent the last couple of days analysing the posibility of vero`ing this, but I agree, it would be unmanagable. I`ve made contact with someone here in Canada who has one, and I`ve sent him an email asking if he would be comfortable with opening his up, and taking a snapshot of the trace side of the big board. Maybe I`m wrong, but I don`t believe I`ve seen any pics of that side of that board. I haven`t gotten a response yet.

Keppy, insofar as buying your boards, I`m in as well. Please PM me with payment details once the boards are verified. I`m in Canada btw.

Cheers,
Dino

OK... update.

I`ve sold my house, and I`ve got some cash to invest. I`ve made an offer on a unit, and I`m awaiting a reply. If accepted, I`ll have it by the 2nd week of June. If I get my hands on this sucker, I`d be willing to be the goto guy for pics, measurements, dmm readings, whatever. I`m not afraid to do a bit of poking and proding for a great cause such as this. Let`s cross our collective fingers.

Long live the brotherhood of the stompbox  ;D

Cheers,
Dino

Another update....

GOOD NEWS!!! Negotiations are complete... and successful!  :D ;D :icon_biggrin: :icon_lol: :icon_smile: :icon_surprised: :icon_mrgreen: I should have it in my hot little hands by the 2nd week of June.

I`ll post when I`ve got it, and I`ll be on standby for pics and info from any and all.

I would really love to make this piece of the pope`s shit available to everyone. Who knows, maybe some really bright minds out there will come up with some cool mods as well. A "diystompbox centerpiece" of sorts.

Cheers,
Dino

Boards for purchase
« Reply #109 on: May 15, 2011, 05:29:40 PM »
Okay, so here's my deal with the boards: I'm going out of town next week. With what I have on hand, I can make two sets of boards this week IF someone checks my work before next weekend. Jimi gets one, Dino or wavley gets the other. I'm still not sure if wavley wants a set or was offering to make a set, and I don't know if Dino still wants a set as he's buying an original unit (nice work, by the way!). Anyone else will have to wait until June if they want boards from me (unless both of those guys decline to buy them). If anyone else wants to offer to make pcbs in the meantime, that'd be great too!

Keppy, I`ll make a deal with you. Why not hold off right now, until I get the real mc coy. Since you were straight-up about making the boards, I figure that it would only be fair that I offer you good pics and info from the unit. That way, we`ll have the board traces and wiring info to go with it.

It`s a bit like the story of the young bull, and the old bull. Hey pops, lets run down there and screw us a cow! No son, we`ll walk, and screw them all.

Cheers,

No problem guys. Personally, I love noise makers. I started playing guitar when I was 14, and I'm 46 now. I still remember my first exposure to the likes of Belew and Fripp, it simply blew my mind. Since then, I constantly strive to make my guitar sound anything but like a guitar. The more research I did on this baby, the more I thought that it would be a good investment (sound, as well as money), and it would really give a leg up to the stompbox community if we could peel this onion open. I'm no electronics genius, but I'm happy to learn, contribute, share, and most of all, participate. I know I'm about to drop some major coin here (apart from the GT-PRO, and Geiger Counter I bought last week! :icon_mrgreen:), but I feel it's going to be worth it for everybody, including myself.

Besides, good karma dictates that you only get out, what you put in. I believe it.

Keppy, I'm in Quebec. Yeah, we got bulls and cows here too. 'Cept they all moo in both official languages  :icon_razz:

Cheers guys!

I'm up for buying a set, I don't have a lot of time right now so etching boards isn't really in the cards, even if I buy boards it may be a few months before I can get to stuffing them.  I agree with the others, let's wait and get some more gut shots and whatnot.
