I put in wound 3rd 11s on it and it has been amazing since then. Oh and that 22u cap is see through simply because it goes slightly over another component. No it’s not part of the polarity protections mate, they’re just next to each other in the schematic. It’s a great pedal, but it’s function is to add more of what you already have, by that I mean more dynamics and harmonics. I find there is a sweet spot before the fuzz transition where the sound is very responsive to picking pressure and guitar volume.

Guichanism 9 December at And I don’t know which. Or if you do want to use a parallel diode, then put a fuse in series with the supply.
Do you have any idea why my bass control is not working still? This is just a Colorsound Overdriver by another name There’s even room for it: Also seems like you have the volume and drive pot values switched.
John Kallas 3 September at Do you already have an account? I have owned 3 different pedals based around the Colorsound Overdriver: Also found out that this schematic doesn’t have nf between BASS 1 and 3. We’ve added some “new” guys to the moderator crew. Hfe seems to be around This’ll have to wait ’till i get my next 25 batch of BK pots: Hi, Looking at the schematic from the topic referred to above http: Take some voltage readings – they may help.
In all honesty I’d forget the reverse polarity collrsound diode though.
Yeah – how’s the intonation these days? SkydogFan81May 10, But I have very little gain, and hear what I think is clean signal coming through. It’s still just a PS filter cap and 47u seems a pretty common value for this even if a bigger cap would do a better job.
May 10, 1. I am thinking it may sound like a colorsound overdriver.
Open Chat – DIVIDED BY 13 JOYRIDE HELP!!!
It won’t be an extreme overdrive at all, unless you crank the drive all the way up, then it gets fuzzy. The Colorsound Overdriver is a very popular effect, so it’s unlikely to be the circuit design. Well to start with the gain range was still rubbish All stacked up from around 8 or 9 upwards just like on the coloursound and oberdriver very usable until I experimented with swapping the gain pot, ultimately settling for a 2K lin, lverdriver now it’s a nice steady sweep all the way from not divlded completely clean all the way through to full on drive, same with the volume, found again that 2k lin gave the best results here as well.
Like the Dyna-Ranger, the Joyride is a highly-adjustable, 3 discreet transistor, warm, organic, and very amp-like sounding overdrive pedal that offers everything from a subtle bump-up with hair, to punishing, highly-boosted over-the-top overdrive.
The TIM is much more predictable than the Joyride and won’t do the fuzzy thing. But bass still feels maxed out with no control. IvIark 11 September at Just colorsund the schem an it is a part of polarity protection and not just a power filter.

There was an unnecessary 22u cap in the last layout above Q1, so if you’ve built this with the old layout snip that cap out. IF I get it working I built this, and sounds very muddy. The positive side should be connected to the collector of Q3, per the original schematic.
