Steel Panther Pu55y M3lt3r

I've held off in laying this one out just for the name alone (it was banned from Reverb for this very reason), but the circuit is fairly interesting so it was time. It features a MOSFET buffer into a pretty standard opamp gain stage with LED clipping into a MOSFET gain stage. Schematic and discussion over on FSB. I took a few liberties with the power section simplify it and make it all fit in a 1590B.

  1. Why hold off? I want to build it based on name alone!

    1. some humorless woman moaned until she got the company to stop making it and subsequently everyone kow-towed to the feminist cabal because apparently a pedal like this will stop "women and girls" wanting to play music even though all the women I know who play music aren't pathetic and also have a sense of humor.

    2. Let's hold off on a debate over PC or whatever and keep commentary about the circuit. People have just as much right to be offended by the name as the rest of us have the right to think it's funny. Keep it chill and be kind.

  4. TESTED, WORKED PERFECTLY, BASS AND TREBLE WELL PRESENT, BUT THE KEY MAKES VERY NOISE WHEN TURNED ON

  5. I think either LED should be rotated

  6. are you a "pu55y"? Scared of some little controversy?

  7. Shouldn't one of the LEDs be rotated?

    1. You are correct, yes. Forgot to rotate when I copied the part.

    2. Does it matter which led gets rotated? Or have you fixed that in the drawing?

      Delete
    3. Haven't had time to fix yet. Doesn't matter which one you rotate, but only rotate one.

    4. Awesome! Thanks so much. I put the led's in sockets and originally had them both the same way and it was kind of farting out. I flipped one of the led's and it was incredible! WOW!!! Amazing sounding circuit!

    5. By the way, I pulled the LED's out and tested a bunch of different diodes in the sockets. Found that the el cheapo 1N270 sounds amazing in this circuit! Very Klon sounding!

    1. Check out the Transfer Library tab (you need to be on desktop mode, not mobile if you're on your phone or a tablet)

  11. Pin 7 and 6 are tied together but are connected to nothing. Why is the + input connected to anything then?

    1. That's how you terminate an unused half of a dual op-amp.
