I haven't even built one yet, but I keep hearing people rave about how great booster pedals are...whats the hype about?  Doesn't it just make your guitar louder?  Couldn't you just turn up the amp?

I just listened to those again, they are almost bad enough for me to not even want them online lol.  Oh well, I think regardless of my poor guitar playing, it shows the DRP1 in action a little anyway.

Cool, so I was right.

Make sure to post when you get the thing working and stuff.

Here are some sound clips.  Before you listen, keep in mind I've only been playing a few years, and not as much as I should...I'm still a newb when it comes to playing lol. 

No pedals/amps/speakers used, it went:
Guitar -> DRP1 -> laptop

As much as I know from Back in Black

I can't tell in the pic, but does that mean my assumptions were right or wrong?

**edit**
Nevermind, I figured it out, I was right.   :P

The primary wires could very well be a smaller gauge, think about it.  It is a 200VA transformer, wire gauging is mostly to compensate for amps.  The more amps, the bigger the wire.  The AC is 110-120v, lets use 110 for the math.  200VA/110V = 1.8 amps going through the primaries.  Now the secondaries.  200VA/40V = 5 amps.  It makes sense when you think about it.  I would say the two small heavily insulated wires are most definetly primaries.

**edit**
I should note that its really probably half that for the secondaries since there are two sets.  So 2.5, but thats still more than the 1.8 primaries.

By crappy sample did you mean it kicks ass?  Because it did!  That sounded great!  Make sure to post it on the wiki.
