I will look into that when I get back on that project! I will get my hands on some of those transistors! I got 10K and 50K trim pots to replace the 8K2 and 33K resistors with. That should help with getting things just right!"
"Have you tried a lower gain transistor for the 1st stage? Something like BC337-16 or BC547A with an hfe of (100-250) will tame the over saturation of the 1st transistor common in the FF circuit, making it smoother & more versatile? Lots of…"
I will have some in the future! Just getting started. But yes, that is on the "To Do List" for sure! Even have a few good pickers lined up from around the Cimarron River Valley. So it shouldn't…"
Awe shucks, I appreciate the kind words! I do try and do my best, even when you cannot see it. The one knob pedal is my "Barn Burner Boost". My fuzz that I am working on has the standard fuzz, and level knobs. I just got…"
"BC109B are sounding really good. But I have ordered some 10K and 50K trim pots to be able to bias better. Also may add another filter cap to smooth out the first stage transistor a smidge. Been busy with a small run on my first production pedal,…"
"Sockets & Trimpots are useful in mining the gold out of high gain transistors, especially FF circuits! I like to use 1% Resistors instead of standard ones in these kinds of circuits, they hold to their specs longer & operate with less noise.…"
"Currently have a whole list of projects! But I have a Fuzz pedal, a couple Bypass Relay circuits, a Boost pedal, a Pre-Amp pedal, and a 1950/51 Gibson BR-6F that are all in various stages of disrepair. Some are waiting on parts. Some just need more…"
