WOLF COMPUTER DIY DID YOU BUILD IT?

I know I sold some PCB's to people on ILF. I did not see any pictures or get any angry emails so I really don't know if everything is ok. I would like to hear it! only 3 PCB's here. 7 out there somewhere.

That looks nice and tidy (not counting off board wiring implied). No, I did not build it (because I didn't buy one - sorry for derail/ogling your thread).

...but I do feel like I still owe you a demo of the Really Big Fuzz (still incomplete awaiting woodwork). Cool circuit nonetheless.

I haven't built mine because it needs small caps and all my stock is big old stuff. It will happen eventually and I'll report back.

I haven't built it yet because work is horrible and I have almost zero free time until Christmas :( I definitely want to though! Your Legend of Fuzz PCB worked fine though.

all sold out but ordering more soon. I kinda want to know if I sold 10 non-working PCB or did I sell 10 working PCB? I'm definitely ordering more the question is do I go for a big batch or a small batch for testing? I never had the free time to build one myself. you can get one for free for testing purposes but you need to build it up kinda quick to make it worth it for me. they wont even be ready on my end for a few weeks at least. I will post here.

made from available common parts everyone has. the only thing you probably don't have and may have difficulty finding is the 3.3uF poly box cap. I can just send you one. or you can order it. I paid $0.55 each for one cap and I did purchase them in bulk.

here is the BOM

Just curious; any reason why the more common electrolytic 3.3uf cap can't be used?

electrolytic capacitors are polarized so that would be my primary concern. my second concern would be consistency from one pedal to the next in a production environment. this goes hand and hand with the tolerances %5 poly vs %20 on the electrolytic usually. there is also longevity of the cap. a poly box cap is good for 100 years while an electrolytic cap might not be so lucky. you could buy a "non-polar" also known as a "bi-polar" electrolytic capacitor but if you would go out of your way to find it and pay for it then maybe just keep going and get the high end cap. then after all these considerations there is the issue of temperature stability and moisture resistance. I want my equipment to sound the same in any environment. new designs should not have the problems that old germanium fuzz pedals had.

So it can be used, but you just prefer not to.

Thanks.
