... a few steps closer  :)

This is - by far - my most ambitious homedesigned/-etched project so far. Im not even sure it will fit in a BB. Yep, this is fun!



That's a fine-looking board. And a lot of IC pins!

Thanx for your encouragement, guys:). I am really happy about how the etch turned out. I have made some... 5-8 etched boards so far, simpler circuits, and i am getting better at doing it!

Yep... indeed a lot of IC pins in there. 2*14 pins, 1*16 pins and 1*8 pins. Hehe... makes me a bit nervous to drill. its a critical moment.

And nope, its not a delay... what it is ... well i'll tell when its up and running. if it will start up at all...

Right now i ponder (correct word?) about if i shall put it all together this weekend with my cheaper breadboard electronics, or to wait til monday, when the fullquality stuff arrive. Maybe i shall build two; one with brown carbon resistors and "greenie caps", and one with metal film resistors and panasonic caps. Just to convince myself that there will be no difference at all (or "no important difference"). Because i dont think it will. There are some matched filters in there though, and they may be more happy if built up with low tolerance stuff.

Cheers!

Good word. In fact, your command of the English language is better than most adults here in the USA.  :icon_cool:
>...or to wait til monday, when the fullquality stuff arrive.<
Wait for the "good stuff". Even if it doesn't sound better it will look prettier.  ;D
In theory tighter tolerances make for better filters. However; as many of us have discovered; this is not always the case in the "listening test".
I say build both and enter the one that sounds better. Remember, an important part of the judging process will be how it sounds.
Good luck and happy soldering!

@ haveyouseenhim - Please don't forget to post the schematic, layout, cave drawing, or whatever.

I'm marking your pedal right now, and the lack of info here is putting a crimp on your score.

TO ALL PARTICIPANTS:
Please wait until you have ALL your info, video, etc. done and ready. Please post everything on one post please. It makes judging easier, and avoids me having to leaf through pages to make sure that I didn't miss anything.

I just don't want anybody's score to suffer because some tidbit of information getting buried.

All I can say right now, is that it's very tight score wise. Giving the benefit of the doubt to Mike, on a 130 total point scale, there's only a 4 point spread between our first three contestants on my score sheets.

So far, it's tighter than a frogs ass. I love it! :icon_cool:

i too must reiterate what my learned brothers have stated...

please adhere to the guidelines  of the contest when submitting entries. we're fairly liberal, but presentation is as big a part as most other aspects, so please indeed keep ALL entry related info on one post, because it will be very hard to surf thru 90 pages of fun and entertaining commentary to find the entry related posts.

please help us out friends, we're being nice guys giving stuff away, so don't break our stones too bad. ;)

Please wait to do that. :icon_eek: I'm working on the layout and I'm preparing quality sound clips. I will make a new post with everything included.


EDIT    also I didn't know the judging would start so early.

@Mike

Judging can be done as soon as an entry is submitted and it is up to each judge when and how they judge.  ;D

As for me, I haven't judged a single entry.  :icon_eek:

I like to procrastinate though  8)

I have them all marked so far. Except for Mike, whose missing a score.

I don't feel like waiting to the end, because then I'm going to feel like a cat in a dog pound, having to judge all of them at once. I figure if I give them all scores now, when they're fresh, then all I have to do is go back at the end, and do a quick fly by to make sure that all the scores are justified. Probably have to make small adjustments, but all the hard work will be done.

That's why I keep all the score sheets in Excel book to. Makes flipping between pedals easy to see what I gave who, and think about why.

I use Soundclick, it's free. It's like posting a pic. Lots of services available, Google is your friend. Find a service that suits you, sign up, and upload. Then, post the link here.

Easy peasy.

Here's my official entry post. I got excited about being done and jumped the gun on posting before I had everything together :icon_redface:   Some of this is copy-paste of my posts but I just want to put everything in one post.


It's DONE!   This is my shootout entry. I present to you The Frankenstein Pulse Wahwahwahwahwahwah 

A special thanks to Jdansti, Garcho, and Midwayfair for helping out. That's why this forum is great. Even in a competition we come together to help each other. Viva la DIYSB!

 I will have video and sound Tuesday or Wednesday.










Here's the before pics. It was a Vox v847 gutted and ground down.




My buddy Fish did all of the playing and foot modeling   :D   
The first video is clean channel and the second is the dirt channel.





Here's the layout I finally managed to put together.



And finally the sound clip.
