Madbean Ping (Reverb)

A great simple reverb from Madbean.
You can find his 1590G size boards and infos on his website.

The way the layout has been drawn you should be able to solder the brick directly to the board and lay it under it.

  3. Thanks alex The only reverb brick three build on here is the rub a dub deluxe. Its not bad but i have made 3 of them for friends and i am hoping this one can be dialed down for subtle reverb. I have 4 more of these bricks to use. My friends here in st louis designed them. He gave me 6 brick 3 and 6 brick 2 . I still have several of each and cant wait to try another version of the brick 3. I made 4 dif versions for brick 2 and the best imo was the wampler Faux spring reverb it can be set to a very low amount of reverb. My friend that designed these said not to use anything but a 10k dual for the brick three but ill use the 100k dual as per madbean . Thanks Alex Ill start on this one this weekend cant wait to here it.

    1. seriously doubt it. the bdtr 1 has six pinouts the bdtr3 has 10. They are talking about a brick four that will have a few more options besides. reverb .

    1. they are abbreviations for the transistor and the voltage regulator. IGO is input ground output for the 78l05 voltage regulator. and the 2n5088 transistor CBE is collector base emitter

  9. great layout. dirty visioins beat me too it. im glad i made it. i prefer this to the rub a dub deluxe. it can be mixed down further . the rub a dub deluxe does have more versitility but it doesnt get as mild this one is way better for my taste. Thank You Alex this is an awesome layout. the entire build took me about 2.5 hours including my enclosue

    here is a pic of the ping i did . ill post a gut shot later tonight Alex. its oretty packed but perfect fit considering the soft latch take up a lot of room i stacked the two boards in front of the switch and the battery at the bottom. i love this build .

  11. While waiting to buy a BTDR-3, I hooked up a medium BTDR-2.

    Works fine, modulation doesn't get annoying until the verb pot is full on.

    I agree with strassercaster, great reverb if looking for a more subtle verb.

    If you want to hook up a brick-2, just leave connections for pins 7 thru 10 open. Of course the Room control should also be omitted as it will be hooked up to nothing with a brick-2.

    It will be interesting to compare bricks once I get a brick-3, tough to tell with the video.

    And I also have to agree, fantastic layout Alex! You've inspired me to re-work the Chasm Reverb layout in the forum.

    1. Done!!

      But i've got oscillations past 11 o'clock on room settings...
      100KB dual is too much i think.
      Belton datasheet say 10KB dual for room settings.
      I put 47K on every 100K of the dual pots, to get around 33K dual pot "home made". Good setting, no more oscillations, at maximum room.
