Still working on this one, pretty sure I've got a build error that I'm tracking down. In the meantime, if you want you can flip Q4 180 degrees and label D2 as 4148. So far everything else looks good, but I'll know more for sure once I track down what is likely a tiny solder bridge.
Q: Why is a drummer like a scud missile?
A: Both are offensive and inaccurate.
Oh my God.. you are right!
Had to add an extra cut and an extra row to move components around.
There was also a 47K resistor missing.
I've updated the layout.
Hope it's ok now.
Thanks for the help and sorry about that.
I finally managed to compare the layout to the schematics and I've found another mistake:
the 10K resistor from Brilliance 3 was a row too high. It has been fixed.
I've now corrected the layout and I'm pretty sure it's finally 100% correct.
Thanks for the help.
Let me know if it works!
Just built it and it is verified. I had at first had a jumper going to ground which was screwing everything up then I found the problem, fixed it and now it works. It sounds great. Very very bright even with the bass all the way up and treble all the way down.
I built this on pcb from the link on the rog site and while it can be very bright it does tame down a fair bit with the treble and brilliance turned down, not to the point where it gets very bassy but it is a lot less bright. As it`s an amp emulator you might want to check that the amp your plugged into is set at a flat eq, if your amp is set a little bright to start with it will be amplified.It`s also really important to use a solid state amp (clean channel), I`ve tried it with tubes and it completely loses it`s vox tone. If that fails you may want to double check your cap values.
If it wasn't for this website I would definitely have a life.
Was looking at Britannia layouts and came across your Jangler design. It may be the internet filters on my work computer, but is the layout for the Jangler working and still available? Would it be too much trouble to post it as a picture here or elsewhere? I did an internet search for the layout and could only find a photo of the pedal enclosure on eBay.
You're doing great work, btw. Your Super Tone Control and Rocktave layouts are awesome!
That would be great! I appreciate everything you do here.
I've had a few amps over the years, and recently sold my AC30.. there are times I miss the high-end chime and sweetness the AC30, I was hoping the Britannia/Jangler could get some of that back for me. How do you like the circuit?
Thanks for that. Yeah, it's been a toss-up between these two circuits. I've read good things about the Galileo. I'm a knob-tweaker at heart.. the more knobs the better for me, a huge reason why the G was so appealing. Then I saw MAO's Jangler layout and my interest peaked there also.
Do you have personal playing experience with either the G or the J, and the AC30 amp? I'd love to hear first-hand testimony comparing either of these effects to the real deal!
Sorry Alex, looks like I didn't draw up a layout for this one. I must have used this layout and the Dan Armstrong layout as is. Probably just moved things around a little so the resistors would lay down.
