welcome to Apocalypse Audio, your haven for DIY guitar effects in the end times. so, start prayin to the fuzz gods, savin up those parts, and remember, when the big one goes off- keep your transistors shielded from those pesky electromagnetic pulses!



dudes! made up a few new veros for the db. the first one is a small layout for box caps and radial electros for you guys that like those little baby boxes. the second one is for axial caps vintage style and specifies the specific type of caps that i have been using for my builds. of course, sprinkle your mojo to taste. i'm callin this on v5.2 because of the added reverse polarity protection diode as well as a limiting resistor for the pre control. haven't decided at the exact value for that one, most likely around 50-100K, or just put lug one straight to ground like before. the third one is just stupid small. i call it rev2. good luck you masochists! take er easy!





  1. Hey, huge thanks for the Soda Meiser post and the forum link! I just had one stupid/newbie question i needed to ask:

    Do you short the 2 first Spdt pins (it is the switch for the chaos mode, right)? I wasn't really sure looking at both the schem and layout what I should do, and it was my first guess.

    Cheers and keep up the good work!

    P.S.: I commented on this post, just to be safe you read it :)

  2. you're welcome! glad you are getting some use out of all of this stuff!
    if you are using an SPDT, just connect the SPDT1 connection on the layout to one of the outside pins, and connect SPDT2 to the center pin. leave the other pin unconnected to anything. or you can just use an SPST switch as well.

    take it easy.

  3. Thanks! The reason I was confused was exactly the fact that I didn't get why there was an SPDT rather than an SPST, so I figured it mattered in some way :D

    BTW, the freestompboxes forum link is broken, it seems that there's no need for the /index.php part. (:
    Excellent and huge forum, didn't know where to even begin looking at!
