Re: DIY Electronics?

I do like the look of that strip board. I have used protel in the past, but that is a while ago now :-). I am in the process of leaning Eagle now. I haven't yet worked out if there is spice that works well with eagle, but I would be surprised if there isn't. It is a good reminder to look into that. ...

Re: DIY Electronics?

I have tools and experience at soldering ..... so I'm not scared of complex. Oh right, sorry mate. Brassmaster is a good one then. ;) I cloned up a Supercollider Beast (muff with feedback loops, different diode options etc.) that was fun. The Moody mushroom delay was fun, its a simple analog delay ...

Re: DIY Electronics?

Try this one - http://www.dunneffects.com/product/deceiver-distortion-pcb He makes some awesome sounding pedals. I like the look of that for a different project. My son made a cheap ebay distortion kit as his first project, and it worked, but he got a few things too hot and every now and then a pad...

Re: DIY Electronics?

I have tools and experience at soldering. I have put this together http://www.jyetech.com/Products/LcdScope/e138.php so I'm not scared of complex. Most of that kit is small surface mount stuff. Just wondering what is out there that might be interesting to try.

DIY Electronics?

OK, I have always been into electronics as a hobby, and have been interested in DIY pedals for ages, but have never made one. I have been wondering about doing it though. Has anyone done that? What are interesting kits that people know about? I have looked long and hard at the Schalltechnik_04 Pumpe...

Re: DIY Refinish

Oils will go on with a rag, so no spray gun needed. Please be careful with the used rags though. I have heard of them igniting - especially when too many are in the same place. Don't put them all in the same bin together. A bit of light sandign every coat or 2 can help. Personally I have used and re...

Re: Can someone build a 1x12 cab $$

I would think that you would need to start with the specs of your driver and work from there. There are software packages that look at box designs based on driver parameters. Last time I did it was many, many years ago and did the calculations manually, so i can't help with software suggestions. You...

Re: Pros and cons of selling the big rig

I have a solid state head that I am keeping. It sounds good and I won't get anything for it if I try and sell it, so I may as well keep it. It doesn't get used much, but in my case it is my only head and I wouldn't want to be totally without one.

Re: Rant Thread !

The thing is that I personally suspect that a lot of the rhetoric coming out of NK is more about their internal power plays and maintaining leadership strength than it is about caring about what the rest of the world thinks.

Re: Elf anyone?

The one I always get a giggle out of is super high quality HDMI cables. Um. It's a digital signal. It either works or it doesn't. If your cable is good enough for the signal to get through, then a better quality cable is not going to give you any better video or audio quality.

Looking for backing track suggestions

OK, so I mostly play in church, and so mostly I am turning up to rehearsal and running through songs off a chord chart, and altering things/feel/tempo etc based on who is in the band n the day. I am not really needing to learn lines to well known songs etc, but what I do want to get better at is mak...

Re: OPINION: What do you hate/dislike most about your equipment?

I have been seriously thinking about replacing a blend control with a 3 way switch. I use each pickup solo'd, and both in the middle, but never any of the more subtle blends. A three way switch would make it easier to see at a glance which position it's in.
