Some new projects planned

To improve my David Gilmour inspired pedalboard I have planned to build some new pedals. I have currently have parts and pcbs for three new projects:

  • Big Muff Pi (slighty modded to Skreddy Pink Flesh/Mayo specs)
  • Dr Boogey (not for anything Gilmourish, but general rock/metal)
  • Baja Real Tube Overdrive (original design by Bajaman from FSB, based on the BK Butler Tube Driver
  •  

    Big Muff
    The schematic for the Skreddy Mayo (traced ech0es at FSB?)

    Here are the mods for Pink Flesh specs (from Marc himself):

  • C1 – 10uF
  • C8 – 4.7nF
  • Mid Boost: Switch in 4.7 nF parallel to C9
  • Cx – 220-470 pF
  • Add 100R resistor after Dx
  • C3 – 68nF
  • The tone switch

     

    Dr Boogey
    I ordered a PCB from Madbean, and will use this project file. The original design is by electrictabs (?) and was posted in the DIYSB forum. The design is a JFET emulation of the lead channel of the Mesa Boogie Dual Rectifier.

    The new IPA has been bottled

    I bottled the new IPA last week, and am anxiously waiting to taste it. Label and name inspired by Pink Floyd:
