What are the plans at the minute? Do you think you'll bother tracing it, based on the fact that it sounds the way it does?

I'm still going to trace it. No idea when though, probably next week once I've moved.

I'm interested to hear it though something other than my Yamaha practice amp. It seems to sound nicer the lower the bass knob was down on my Pedulla.

Can it do an Invincible bass solo?

I started breadboarding it to check if the layout works. It does, but it's made me really depressed. I *really* don't like the sound of the Humster. I figured it sounds better when I'm running less bass through my Pedulla and even then, only the higher strings and higher up sound tolerable, dare I say, good.

I'll have to tear it apart to measure those caps and then buy the parts. I'm missing a lot of parts since I've moved.

Does the circuit resemble anything familiar?

Also, based on the little information out there, it was designed for humbuckers... but it was never said whether it's meant for guitar or bass. The listing I bought it from said bass though.

Need to register to see anything, but I did find the imgur album:

Are we sure it was used for that defector clip? I guess it suggests that, as it sounds like something's broken

Well, not much to it is there. could drop R5-7 to 10k to help reduce general noise. No need for 1M there.

Ehh, here's the schem then if you aren't registered.



Completely agree Jaicen. I also think that if the transistor was lower gain, it'd actually help. Turning down the volume on both my bass and guitar made it sound tons better.

That transistor configuration actually makes more sense if it's a PNP transistor. As drawn, it won't bias correctly with the collector at v+. Swap it around with a PNP transistor and suddenly it's a gain stage.

I was going through the list of components it could be and I found nothing would match it up unless it was a PNP, which is against what my little ESR reader suggests. I'll have to breadboard it all properly when I get a chance.

I made a little fix as well which I have to update here, forgot the second half of the DPDT switch, for the LED. On another forum, they mentioned the little bit of bleed with the bypass can be eliminated by using a 3PDT to short R9 for unity gain on the IC, which may even be a LM308. Might need to dig some old electrical notes out to measure the slew rate of the IC.

Meh, it's not really anything fantastic or groundbreaking from a schematic point of view, just really, really well thought out filters that give it a unique tone. I'm more in it for the EQ and the balanced output. Even then, there isn't anything overly surprising, the most surprising is actually how the switching is done using CMOS and FET's.

For a summary (at least of the B3K) since I'm not going to write up the schematic for this:

Bypass with FET's and CMOS
Blend using unity gain opamps
JFET's configured like a Mu-Amp
Filtering (some HPF and LPF) and notch filter at 350ish Hz
More filtering, switch to change attack
Opamp gain with drive control
Switch for high pass filter
CMOS overdrive (honestly this alone sounds fantastic just on a breadboard and it's 70's era stuff)
A fuckton of opamp filter sections to reduce some more mids and overall shape
(I'm guessing insert EQ stage for BxK/Ultra etc)
Return to blend

This is basically how a good bass overdrive should sound. It's similar to how the animato works out really well with blend. I prefer this as more of a pushing past clean rather than a full on distortion.

Honestly the biggest thing I could think that would be a great improvement is to control the depth of that notch. It's so characteristic yet it can make things sound a bit empty, especially if you want to not use it for metal sounds. I can, 100% understand why this pedal ends up in studios with its frequency profiling, I even used one myself for our whole EP.

The switches are damn cool though, I will give full kudos for build quality and the thought going into it.

As a friendly reminder, this is what I'm doing, so cool your jets, I just enjoy being curious about this all.
