Actually finished mine today, don’t know why but it kept getting forgotten…
Well, got mine mostly built only to find out I don’t have any board mount 50k potentiometers.
Some are on their way…but I’m a bit impatient. So went with a 20k and taking a bit of a hit on gain. Didn’t have time to dig out my piezo’s yet but plugged in a cigar box guitar and seems to have sufficient gain even with the 20k pot.
Now I really wish I had enough 100k pots to get the splashback finished. Or at least somewhere I could order some from that would get them to me in less than a week.
Amplified parts usually has them in stock and ship quickly.
Oh, forgot about them. Had been looking at them earlier this week. But they’re back ordered on 10k and 100k like pretty much everyone else
Then there’s Small Bear.
Yeah…Small Bear has them…but over $2 a pot I’d rather wait the three weeks for aliexpress. And Mouser is over $4 each Everywhere else is out of stock. Unless I went with the plastic shaft no-threads which I’d rather not do. Just need to be patient since my budget for the month has already been blown enough to pay over $2 a pot for faster.
I did order an extra PT2399 or two so I may just whip up a stripboard single or dual delay with panel mount pots to tide me over. The CBG through the Mikro and MS-20 is entertaining me pretty well…but I’d really like to get a delay on there. Will see what mood strikes me later
You have a Neutron, right?
I do, but I haven’t had much luck patching through the delay - the way some things are connected in there by default always messes me up. Besides, the main reason I bought the extra 2399’s was because I wanted to build something from scratch with them anyway. So gives me an extra excuse to melt some solder and experiment
petew petew pew pow pakow petew pew pew.
Lost it when you flipped it upside down. So good.
Lovely! The gift that keeps on giving. Spring reverb*10
This would make a great reverb “tank” :
All this springs remember me some experiment with my Spring Box, not with modular but Spring Spring
" trying desperately to prove it was worth cutting a whole in my guitar " Simon is so much fun to watch .
So to attach the piezo onto the back of this module I should sand the back down to the copper like @ChristianBloch did and solder it on? Just making sure so I don’t screw it up.
I just used a double sided adhesive strip.
