Felix Kalium (a.k.a. m-kresol on the Madbean forum) has a really cool project called Ruthenium Reverb. I purchased the OSH Park boards, and it seems there's a manufacturing error on them. I built up all three, went back and forth with Felix trying to troubleshoot, and I think we just came to the conclusion that something went amiss with the boards. Anyway, I would love to get a vero layout for this if anyone has time. Here is the link to Felix's nice build doc:
I couldn't even wait til morning, lol. I built the circuit last night. I have to say, it's really well laid out. It was a pleasure to put together. I'll finish it up today and report back. Thanks again.
Way to make good use of your healing time, aside from healing!
... And it does! Hahaha. I knew I wasn't crazy. Worked right away, no issues whatsoever.
This thing has pretty quiet output... Well, the reverb is itself is pretty noisy, even with shielded cable all around. But the output signal is far quieter than when bypassed, so I'm going to throw a boost in the box with it. I'll be sure to add photos soon.
MAO, thanks again. I very much appreciate the generosity of your time!
Thanks for the layout! Just built one last night and it sounds so good! I missed a good spring reverb sound, so I built this for my amp. Going to hook it up to the effects loop and tuck it away inside the head.
I did notice that having a footswitch on this "pedal" will be really noisy because of the springs bouncing around inside. Might be a good idea to use a soft touch switch, but even then you'd have to lightly engage it haha
