Not looking for any drama, but did you etch your own boards? If so, they look nice. I'm starting to tire of perf/vero and might take the plunge. Playing around w/ this lately tends to motivate , http://www.softpedia.com/get/Others/Hom ... ator.shtml

extra mojo for the box caps and the jumbo orange drop.

no drama here either! LOL

Yes, i do etch, drill and cut my own boards. AND used the DIY Layout Creator. that is a great program, especally, if you are tinkering around with a new design or reworking an old one. it's also great if you don't plan on mass producing some circuits. i do recommend it, and would help out in any way in getting you started. my next plunge probably would be to get some cad files made for my boards and getting them made for me. it is the most time consuming aspect of the whole build.

thanks for noticing the caps, a big part of the circuit!

is that a shot of the whole board and why the scrubbed values(or are they facing the other direction?)

there is a resistor in place but missing from view because of the picture angle. the scrubbing of the components was a technique i learned from CAE sound. i just followed suit. it in no way hinders the performance of the buffer/preamp, just the copying of it.

It might be my monitor but your pics seem to be too big. THey keep getting chopped off on the right hand side. Either way it's interesting.
How about a schematic?

Someone here has old man resolution on their monitor :lol:

Depending on your machine & browser you may be able to right click on it and view the image on its own/not in the forum.


Schematic? I think I'll just put that on the list of things I'll never know...

Just got mine in the mail today (thanks Mike)! I just wanted to say that it looks extremely well built and very nicely thought out. I'm totally psyched to install it in my new project! 8)

Coming from an electronics neophyte ... Just wondering, can this buffer be made to be used with some other type of battery besides a standard 9V; like a dime size lithium found in small electronics and watches, etc?, without any loss of quality or funcionality. Thinking this would more readily fit in a guitar cavity without having to make space and route wood.

i have been researching this already, but haven't found the solution yet. it is a great idea though!
