    NPD: Dual Resonant Filter

    This is my latest build. I finished it last night. I obviously haven't used it in church yet, but I could see it being a very cool effect to add to plenty of songs that we typically do. It is the PedalPCB Chaos Machine. I think it is either a clone or an interpretation of EQD's discontinued...

    Electric Druid Flangelicious

    I picked up this board directly from Electric Druid back in January or so and it finally made it to the top of the build queue. I have an MXR four knob flanger, but I didn't use it much since it's an 18V supply (though now I could with my new Truetone power supply) and I hadn't built one yet...

    Phase 45 clone

    In a 1590a, I may be crazy! But given how well Madbean documents his builds, I think it'll be a dandy pedal when complete. I finished the last circuit step tonight by matching pairs of 2n5457 JFETs and actually have a few close matches out of 20 devices. I like the Phase 45 better than the...

    Merlin's Glassblower Boost

    After I completed a couple of 1590A PCBs that I bought on a whim I went back to the queue I started earlier this year with a TH Custom board of Merlin Blencowe's (The Valve Wizard) bootstrapped clean boost, the Glassblower. It could easily fit a 1590A but I already had gotten a 1590B for it so...

    A couple of comps

    After the marathon Aion Lab preamp build I need something a little simpler, so I started two compressors. The left is an AMZ Q&D compressor using the Analog Devices SSM2166 processor, the right board is a Madbean Afterlife optical compressor for a 1590A. As always, I'm now waiting on parts...

    Aion Blueshift Chorus

    Just got my Aion Blueshift up and running this afternoon, what a build! 100 resistors, 65 capacitors, 14 ICs, 9 transistors, all controlled by just three switches (four if you include the stomp). It's a clone of the Boss Dimension C, something I've wanted to try and was inspired to build while...

    Aion Vector Delay

    Back in November-ish my good ole Visual Sound Garage Tone Axle Grease delay (phew, that's a long name!) gave up the ghost. When I popped the circuit out to troubleshoot I was confronted with an SMD circuit. While I have worked on SMD's in my late 20's, I drink way too much coffee now to...

    NPD - Quaverato Harmonic Tremolo

    Hi. So, I’ve been finding myself using tremolo more and more. As well as just plain liking the effect, it works well to add parts that stand out as a little separated when layering loops on my lopper. I like it for similar reasons on home recordings. I’d been using the Donner Golden Tremolo...

    My first siliFUZZ vero/schematics

    Hello TDPRIers, I realized my first simple fuzzface veroboard design! It consist basically in a silicon sunface followed by an AMZ presence control and a transistor volume recovery stage. I tested it in a breadboard and it seems to work as intended! Would anybody take a review at the schematics...

    Nucleon Arion Chorus clone

    I've been posting about the Liquid Eternity Chorus in the Chinese Klon thread, but it deserves it's own. The board is from Nucleon FX in the Netherlands; I really enjoyed building their "Redstone" TMB EQ/boost. Good build docs, and they use an optical bypass board with an TLP222G included...

    Madbean Fritter (Hot Cake mod)

    I'm building this at the same time as my 5E3, gotta get a pedal in there LOL. It was Brian's giveaway board when I picked up the tube OD and Mutron, meant for a 1590A. My fingers are too big for tiny boxes, I build everything in 125B's but went with a white 1590B I had hanging around. That...

    Madbean "Naughty Fish" Mutron III

    While I was waiting for new tubes for the Madbean "Uber Tuber" submini tube OD I started stuffing their Mutron III clone board, the Naughty Fish. It's pretty packed, all 1/8W resistors, 4 chips, a pair of Vactrols, three switches and three pots to fit in a 1590B (!) I just use 125Bs for...

    A Couple Compressors

    I've been doing a little of this, that and the other thing lately, including modding some builds with different op amps, diodes, and rewiring the heaters on my MOD tube amp, quiet as a mouse now :cool:. In the meantime I've had two compressors on my bench. A FET based comp from 1776 Effects...

    GGG Silicon Tone Bender MkII

    Just finished this up, a General Guitar Gadgets two knob silicon Tone Bender MKII: I was able to re-purpose the box I messed up drilling for my compressor project. The box was originally powder coated orange, but I wanted something else for this so I sprayed Testors Inca Gold lacquer...

    Completed a couple from FuzzDog

    I really like Fuzz Dog (Pedal Parts UK) builds, I did a Colorsound Overdriver clone awhile back and picked up a couple a few months back. The "Llamatron" (Red Llama clone) and "Bee Juice Overdrive" (Sweet Honey clone) were a couple circuits that I didn't have in my dirt collection. I could...

    Capacitor Tolerance Values

    I work in a lab on my college campus. I have access to almost all of the electronics to make a pedal, except the tolerance values for the capacitors is 5% whereas the tolerance values in the DIY kits are all 1%. Using the 5% caps would be the difference in spending about $15 vs. buying an...
