    The SMT is actually a different chip entirely, the THAT4301 is EOL. That said if you want to build the gate Profusion still has some of them in stock

    Is that the copy of the Buxom boost? I know that is one I wanted to do. If/when I ever order more and get in the mood to build pedals again, that is definitely one on my list. :)

    Yes it sure is , it’s a must have for sure , had to put the 1/4 w resistors on there ends but looks pretty cool that way

    Doing a clone of the Golden Pearl in the a.m

    Spent over 10 hrs building the clone of the Revv Red pedal...let me re phrase that spent almost 8 hrs trouble shooting...can’t find out why it sounds like a treble booster/ Fuzz...gheez what a nightmare...some one chimed in at told me to check the voltage on pin 1 and 7..I’ll do it in the a.m

    Have some cool builds coming up...but I like the Betty Boost

    Damn, Mammoth is shutting down. They were my go to for enclosures and a couple other parts :(

    Just got the email, they are being acquired and effective immediately are no longer taking orders.

    TBH I've heard a lot of complaints about their service over the past couple months (likely related to the shutdown), which is why I went with Smallbear on my last order. Mammoth was quite a bit cheaper though, and my past orders didn't have any problems, but that was quite a while ago.

    Yeah I just saw that email as well. Crazy, but to echo what @stevexc said, they have a pretty crummy reputation with follow through and order accuracy. I even had some trouble with them in the past with a few kits that were missing parts, and incorrect items.

    They said they will be fulfilling open orders, just not taking any new ones.

    These will be builds 3 and 4 for me. First multi-channel amps and first time using pc boards as well. The first 2 were single channel using turret boards I made. I actually need to get a thread up for my second build soonish since it's completed now.

    Tyrian Distortion...Revv3 (purple) clone

    Sounds just like the demos..very quite , i was amazed.
    I put the IC's in backwards LOL...blew the 10R resistor, but i had to think how to build this for days..had to put 10#s in a 5# box as someone said , very glad other forum members chimed in a helped out..im still learning and i will do rookie mistakes !

    20191016_190001.jpg 20191016_184657.jpg 20191013_111213.jpg

    Had to mock this one up, use sockets instead of the recommended way on the build docks..a forum member suggested this..props !

    Had to socket the LED underneath , i always solder in wrong it seems but some older PCB's are wired different ..so

    Anyways ..it sounds great ! I done the Revv4 but it sounded like a treble booster/fuzz..ill come back to that one again once i can trouble shoot a little better

    Those TL074’s always confuse me, with the dot on one side and the notch on the other, I can never remember which side is the top and I have to google it.
