    2. thanks miro. I also just finished drawing up a vero for guitar pcb's dual voiced filter V3 (based on an old Craig Anderton circuit) that I plan on building & testing soon. I just need to check the vero one more time before I build it.

    3. Is that the circuit just released over at GuitarPCB?

    4. yep. I've been going over my vero of it a few times before I build it so that there's less chance of having a circuit that doesn't work. i found a couple of errors in it today i but think I finally got it correct.

    1. Yup. TL062 is just the low-power version.

    3. For this design, any dual opamp should do jsut fine.

  3. Awesome! On my to-build list this weekend. Could you guys please do a layout of the Rockett Animal OD? I've seen A bunch of pics online, I believe it uses a jrc4558, but I can't seem to find an actual schematic... Anyway, it would be awesome if you guys could do a layout for it! Thanks.

    1. it's probably be worth a try but with 11 pots you might want to call it the WTMK (way too many knobs ;-)

  8. Looks cool! On my list of "May build" pedals! Along with the Factory and Great destroyer. Want something fuzzy and crazy.

  10. built it and it works well (it's a crazy fuzz!)
    BTW, the top left lead should go from gain/color3 and Xover 1 (as per gaussmarkov's layout (and the TMK schematic). and your Xover 1&2 should go to xover 2&3. IMO, it seems to work better that way.

  11. it turns out that I like the bias and hi cut mods in it. adding the two additional pots means that it's going to have to go into a 1590BB now.

    here's my modded miro layout for it:
