« on: December 29, 2012, 08:17:43 PM »
Well attempted to build my first distortion stomp and it just had a total melt down:(

Does anyone know anyone that can built a massive distortion box thats better than the MXR DD11 dime and pushes mor than the emma piswatu (spelled the last one wrong).

Well, the actual DD11 costs only $112 , so ... why ask for a copy when you can have the original ?

If you say theory and practice don't agree you haven't applied enough theory.

Franco, a big hat tip for the designs, for the presentation, and for making these freely available to home builders.  You set a cracking standard for others to follow.

nice project;but a couple of things could be improved on
1. there are no filter caps around the heater smoothing circuit,i'd sprinkle small ceramics liberally here supply to ground,to kill any high freq noise before it gets to any audio sections
2. putting electrolytic caps right next to a valve/tube is not a good idea,they dry out when exposed to heat
nice PCBs though;are they available,or maybe a kit? i looked into doing something like this but the cost of post on the valves plus a hammond case was going to quadruple the cost :-\
