Devi Ever OK

We had some deficit on basic Devi circuits. I'm fully aware that these circuits are not for everyone, but i personally enjoy Devi's amazing work a lot. To support her, you should most definitely think about getting kits (and why not production pedals) from her Etsy page. Her pricing is very appealing too...

  1. Wow. This circuit is like a dare made real.

    1. Sorry, not my cup of tea, if I built something that sounded like this I would think I did something seriously wrong. Oh well, if you have a name and can sell them, more power to you. :-)

    2. ... Well. I don't think there's anyone holding a gun to your head and forcing you to build it.

      Personally i find odder, noisier sounding boxes worthwile. Not for base sound/tone, but something to pull out on those special tricks when recording.

    3. I agree, I like odd noise effects, there are some great ones out there, but this just sounds farty and splatty. Trouble is, I'll probably make it, so thanks for the vero layout. You two are doing some great work this year - 32 already, how can we mere mortals keep up :-)

  3. This one's really cool, and has definitely shot up to the top of my "to build" list. I wonder how well it'll work on bass.

    1. You could try upping 10n to 47n or 56n and all three 100n to 220n or 330n. Should be more bass friendly with those.

  4. Tag it. This one's a keeper. I absolutely love the unpredictable gating, stuttering and almost 8-bit Nintendo-esque grit. I used all stock values, and it's fine on bass. The only substitution I made was a 2N3906 in place of the 2N2907A, but they're pretty much identical hFE-wise.

  6. I'm having trouble getting this pedal to fire up. When using the 3PDT switch and wiring according to |V|ark's diagram here (http://tagboardeffects.blogspot.com/2012/02/offboard-wiring.html) I am still coming up short. I have control 2 to input sleeve and volume 2 to output sleeve. 9v + heads to the board, and I have another wire attaching it to the first (upper left) lug of the switch. This leaves the center and upper righthand lugs bare. Is this correct? I have not wired a board with no input and output connections on it before. I am getting no signal when the switch is bypassed, and a rhythmic clicking noise when turned on. I also noticed that when the switch is off no voltage is getting to the + lug of the DC jack. Any idea what I did wrong?

    1. I should mention I used BC550 for Q1+Q2

  7. Nice work. Sounds evil. How could I keep the filth but get a bit more sustain before the sound gets all choppy and stutters out?

  8. Just built this and it's great. @Winston, I found out in a verrrry unscientific way that by playing with the input caps (I socketed them just for experimenting) and introducing some higher values you can get it to be a little less gated. I think I ended up with 100n and 150n IIRC. Give it a go! Thanks again guys.

  9. Anyone know where a schematic (or other build instructions for a newb) might be hiding out?

  10. Planning on trying this for my first build. Is the cut on the second strip necessary? Or am I just understanding it wrong.
