  • No; they're necessary to stop DC from escaping out each end.


    So you can only jumper spots where the resistors go?

      The LPB is near enough the minimum parts count to do anything to a guitar signal; it's really as crude as physically possible. The most you could hope to achieve by jumpering resistors is to make it fuzzier.

      • Unfortunately partial high end loss is part of the "charm" of the LBP-1. There isn't really a way to raise the input impedance without completely altering the circuit. Perhaps a booster with very high impedance (like an SHO or AMZ Mosfet) is a better booster for you. I've built boosters of both varieties and they both have their own special sound.

        You could always gut your LPB-1 and use some of the parts (jacks, switch, enclosure) to build a different boost. Or send me a PM, I have a pedal you might be interested in.

          I meant as a general rule. The LPB-1 was just my starting point.

          • i stick a pot as the emitter resistor so it acts as a fuzz knob.

            • Nifty little things, but not exactly what I'm going for. Looks perfect for attenuators though.

              Doh, totally misread what you wanted to do

              • Some stuff I'm working on. Amp Eleven/Timmy clone with 6 clipping variations and modded boost circuit a la Clock of Tone. MXR Distortion+ using a BYOC board I had laying around. Gonna give it to someone on another forum

                • Hey guys, would like to ask a question on decals.

                  I recently got hold of water slide decal paper (The Magic Touch DCT4.1) and attempted to put a decal on my pedals.

                  So I soaked it in cold water, removed the film, applied it on the pedal and I ended up with this.



                  Since the decal is easily removed, I thought I would seal it by spraying a few coats of clear lacquer paint. (Arrow Brand).

                  After a coat and returning after 20 minutes to do a second, I'm greeted with this:



                  What am I doing wrong exactly? Does the decal take offence to the aerosol lacquer I'm using? Appreciate your thoughts and thanks in advance.

                  • Either it's the wrong kind of paint or you sprayed FAR too much on at one time. What kind of lacquer is it? (enamel, acrylic, nitrocell, etc...)

                    • Did you wait for a day after applying the decal to lay the clearcoat? I'm guessing not. You can't clearcoat a recently applied waterslide.

                      Print the waterslide and seal it with a layer of clearcoat. Wait 4 hours.

                      Apply waterslide and smooth out bubbles and then wait at least a day.

                      Then clearcoat several times.

                        • Hey all,

                          I'm gonna start logging my (slow) progress on my DIY hi-fi looper over in a new thread on DIYSB

                          http://www.diystompboxes.com/smfforum/index.php?topic=96595

                          Complete with pictures! My goal is for it to be as informative as possible for others, all the while I'm learning the how-tos myself. Theories, design decisions, surprises and how I solved them, etc. And for curiosity's sake! I'll post here when I do major additions to the log.

                            • The valvewizard/merlin has put out a design for a new booster which can do 12 Vpp from a 9V battery using some clever jiggery pokery. Apparently its totally transparent. Fairly high parts count for a clan boost though!
