HOORAY! It worked first time! Just finished my DIY Tubescreamer 808 and it's awesome!

I got it yesterday (From these guys) and started to solder the components, It took me an hour to populate the PCB, then I drilled the holes and made the offboard wiring...I think it took me about 3 hours total, but I was almost certain that it wouldn't work first time, but surprise!

Everything works as it should, it sounds awesome, the tone knob is useable through the whole range, and the distortion is smooth on the symmetrical clipping and nastier on the asymmetrical setting (the switch on the right).

I also got like 5 different IC's, will try them...

 

Now I want to build them all! Populating the PCB is super relaxing, I love it!

Down the rabbit hole! If you can wait a few weeks for shipping check out tayda electronics for your components. Uber cheap!

awesome, i remember being worried my first pedal build wouldn't work either but they've always turned out fine.


where'd u order the echo base pcb?
