@wgtp: i'm not too au fait with translating facts n figures into what i can/should hear as i'm just a tinkerer rather than any kind of EE, but it sounds like you've been a busy bee!...cool.

have you a comparison chart (pics of tsc sweeps) to compare before/after?.....or get ya breadboard out and give us some clippies of before after, (i don't have it on bread now)...... :icon_wink:

Preliminary vero layout, looks Ok but might have some errors. The component numbering follows the schematic. Once I've built it I'll tidy it up and add the components values and stuff.




Ian,

I just spent some time checking your vero. The layout seems fine, but I think that the labels on C2 and C4 are switched. Also a label for input is missing.

I am very impressed how compact it is.

Regards

I haven't figured out how to post the Duncan Tonestack graphs on here, but it is easy to plug the values I listed into it.  ;)

i like the way it makes even an ibanez HSH sound like a fender if you want it too...i love it!..

I could have sworn I heard a fender strat in there somewhere!
Sounds great, I really like that sound. A lot of detail from the guitar is coming through.
Definitely on my build list.

Thanks for looking it over, yes you're right C2 and C4 are switched. I'll correct that and add the input.

Thanks, I'm quite pleased with how it turned out. Hopefully I should get some time to build it next week.

Quick question Rob, I'm starting to put this together and I've just noticed C7 is a different value on the schematic and the latest layout, 2n2 versus 22n, could you just confirm which one is correct. Cheers.

Sounds fecking amazing  :icon_twisted:

I like that sound!  How does it sound with a Lightwah in front of it?
I made the transistor angry.

@ian:  nice one!..  yeah its great!... :icon_twisted:....drilled ya box yet?.....edit: so you didn't use a C3 electrolytic 1uf then.!..

No box yet, just wanted to get it built to see what it sounded like and make sure the layout was Ok. I didn't have any 1uF electros so I used some 1uF ceramics that I had lying around, they're the two yellow caps.
Had to do the Classic/Modern differently as well because I didn't have any 6n8 caps, rewired it so the 4n7 is always in the circuit, the switch then puts a 2n2 in parallel with it for 6n8, well 6n9 but that's close enough for rock n roll :)

Sounds great, my friends birthday is just around the corner I could build this one for him. Though I think he would like more gain. Would BF 245c transistors produce more gain than J201's? He is into Chris Broderick, Alex Skolnick and similar type of guitar players, but he also plays in a death metal band, could you give me an advice on how to get more gain out of this amazing pedal?

BF245 will not give more gain .
