Hi yall. Noticed a week or so back that it's been exactly ten years since my first post here. To celebrate the occasion, i thought i'd post something. There's been a number of slower years along the way, but so it goes. Life has it's ups and downs. To quote one of the more interesting british bands i've found in recent years: "It's alright now. Not what you hoped for, but that's ok. Teenage hopes are never less than perfect anyway."
Now for the layout. There had been a trace up on FSB for years and it seemed a bit wonky on couple of details. Vitalii checked his unit out and there were a couple of errors on that old trace. His new trace seems to be spot on. Now, this probably won't be the low-parts-count / easy build alternative for HM-2 style sounds, but this may still be nice 1590B-sized build with enough distorion. There's also room for tweaking. For examble, one could sub one or even both clipping diode pairs for LEDs or Schottkys or use a on/off/on switch for changing them on the fly. Hi/Lo gyrator controls seem to be quite effective as well. I bet this will be a fun distortion build with no special parts required.
Sadly, no youtube demos to be found.. Should you build one of these and a make a demo? ...So i could post it up?
