Brown Sound in a Box 2

Somehow I've not laid out this DIY classic, so here's the BSIAB2. It's a great distortion pedal designed by Ed Guidry and is probably a must for any of you EVH fans.

  2. Don't work. The signal goes through the effect, but the volume and gain are very very low. Bad and low sound ,it's as if part of the signal goes to ground. Ive checked that there aren't bridges, and bad welds. I can't find fault. I have seen that the 1 uf cap next to 220nf in original schematics is non electrolitic, i replace but has not improved. Thanks i will try again ; )

    2. Hola Julio. Ahora mismo estoy con 2 pedales por encargo, pero en terminarlos repaso el esquema y lo monto de nuevo. ( lo he montado 2 veces y nada ) Tengo mucha curiosidad por escuchar como suena esta versión. He contruido 3 o 4 versiones diferentes que andan por internet y tienes sus diferencias y quiero porbar estre xk los montajes de esta web siempre me han dado los mejores resultados. En cuando al BSIAB el montaje de gaussmarkov es el que mejor resultado me ha dado. Si te corre prisa monta ese. Saludos!

  9. Work it! Funciona! Por fin los conseguí, creo que estaba utilizando un condensador defectuoso. como siempre muy buena calidad de sonido y muy poco ruido de fondo. Muy recomendable ; )
