So freaking close, I'm getting sound but one transistor is playing dirty.

I have an inkling, that I've been handed a batch of terrible capacitors. The layout is correct, I'm just one voltage correction off getting one working, in perfboard form (basically, connecting the leads all together)

At least with that layout confirmed, I can get some PCB's made for production. Might start with a batch of 15 and see how it goes from there.

I'm also considering a matte black finish rather than gloss white. The prototype is just in a belted enclosure because it sums up the process so far.

Okay, so the clone works. Here's a list of things about it.

- SO MUCH LESS NOISY!
- Clone sounds midscooped but has more bass coming through. I'd say more defined.
- Slightly blatty at the absolute end of the decay
- About comparable in tone controls
- Quite a bit more gain

Demo to come as soon as I'm done frothing over it. I actually prefer the clone hands down even if it's not perfect. I'll play around with the transistor combination for the booster as I think the change to a much higher gain silicon pair really opened it up. If it didn't have that issue with decay I would say we have a winner.

(Guess for the decay issues is a poorly biased transistor somewhere, I will look later)

It is true bypass.

Holy fucking sheeeeit! It works. It has more gain than the original meaning I'll need to dial back that trimpot but job done! It functions just like the real one. I'll get a video up at some point today or tomorrow.

I'll organise a proper video style demo soon but for now, just a very hasty comparison between the two.

Done.

Required restringing my Pedulla which broke a string overnight while stored away. I realise how much I hate the feel of new strings. Sounds nice though.

You know how when you're a kid you could buy like the Kaiba version of Yu-gi-oh cards with all his ones in it? I wish you could do that for pedalboards. Just go onto Thomann and see "The Chris Wolstenholme Origin of Symmetry Board! Complete with working inhaler! Only 1499.99!"

Going to set up a pre-order page later tomorrow. If you want to guarantee one first, let me know. The pre-order will be $200 AUD including shipping and will be limited to 20 between this site and everywhere else. After pre-order, I will start to charge for shipping on top of the purchase which is approx $20 AUD. Basically, jump in now and its approx $175 USD, or 110

The pedals, if all goes to plan, should be ready and be shipped out early December. The enclosures and pcbs will be painted and etched externally to speed it up and make the builds consistent.
