Members dan-o-guitar Posted April 25, 2006 Members Share Posted April 25, 2006 For those of you following the Beavis Audio craziness, I'd like to provide details of mycurrent project and elict feedback from all you diseased gas bastards. Here it is: - 4 stacked opamps, all switchable--you can run them individually, or stack them all for way more output. - Boost mod with its own pot and stompswitch - Cleanup mod with its own pot - 4 series clipping diodes (standard SI, SI power switching, germainum, and LED) all switchable on both sides of the clipping stack i.e. you can select any of the diode options in or out of circuit. This provides for stock clipping, assymetrical clipping, or wild bizzare combinations - 6-16v adjustable power with the bitchin Beavis trademark analog panel meter - a 5 position rotary switch to select different caps for the tone stack frequency response (don't like the nasal mid-hump that the TS is famous for? No problem change it!) - switchable between TS808 and TS9 circuits or a hybird of the two - switching between the stock transistors for the input and output buffers to NOS germanium. - Jack Orman MOSFET boost on the input stage to drive the TS into a tonal frenzy, with its own stompswitch. The coolest part (if I can pull it off) is that one of the switchable opamps is actually built using all discrete components. Basically an opamp emulator built with various parts and its own diode clipping that will work in conjuction with the stock TS clipping stage. All in all, this will incorporate (as far as I can tell) all known TS mods that you could get from the usual sources, plus some really cool innovations. Here's the best part. If I can get it all working at a build cost of under $500, I going to do a prodcution batch of ten. First come first serve. Maybe not the rarest pedel ever, but certainly the best ratio of knobs/switches per dollar. Comments, additions, changes, requests, etc. appreciated.
