Title: Got my kit!
Post by: smadin on May 02, 2021, 04:41:40 PM
Hello folks,

I used to hang out on here, many years ago, though I lurked more than I posted, so when I got the email about the Kickstarter launch, I was thrilled to back it. My kit arrived yesterday — thanks @joecool85! — and I'm excited to start work on it soon. I'm curious what other folks are planning for enclosures!

Glad to hear it came in okay!  I forgot to put SSGuitar.com stickers in the first few, if yours is one of them and you want a sticker, let me know and I'll mail it out separate.

I received mine today, and the box was smashed almost flat, split open on both ends, and had stickers that said "RECEIVED DAMAGED".  Apparently the only thing lost were any stickers, since I checked all components and they were all accounted for.  I would like a sticker!

I did not understand the note on the schematic that reads "For gain circuit, do not populate R0 and C0".

I checked my box and it does look like I'm missing the sticker as well. I'll message you on Kickstarter. Thanks!

The gain circuit is the standard circuit.  You can use the modifications listed in the notes to have a buffer in front rather than a gain circuit.  I think I may take these notes off the schematic to avoid confusion...though I do want to say something about R0 and C0 so folks know they can leave them empty for a stock config.  I'll come up with something.

Regarding the sticker, I'll get it sent out to you.  Glad the damaged box still had everything in it!

Got mine too.  Everything looks great and I'm excited to get started working on it this weekend. Thank you for such a cool project.
