Octavia PCBs for sale

Postby Brink » 26 Mar 2010, 02:38

I have extra Octavia PCBs.

They fit in a 1590B as seen in the photo.
It can be built several ways as seen in the layout image.
My version, built with negative ground (so it doesn't need a separate power supply) and most of Soulsonic's mods from viewtopic.php?f=10&t=4579&p=68561 is absolutely killer.

$8 each by Paypal includes free shipping to North American, Europe, Australia, Japan, and most places.

I've built on using the negative ground schematic...
What does your and soulsonic's version's mods do to the tone?

The mods take away all of the muddy low end and let the pedal produce a clear octave up on all strings. it gives a lot more definition to runs and chords/doublestops, changing the sound from a boomy mush to a full bodied singing tone.

I'll try to post a comparison MP3 tomorrow.

Is the transformer a standard part I could get hold of in the UK?

I'd did a search previously for replacement transformers here in the UK, and I'm pretty sure the LT44 could be used like Electron sell. I'd probably want to check the specs first. Also I'm not sure if the dimensions are the same which could obviously be a problem with a PCB.

Thats cool. I just modified my Octavia to Soulsonic's more apparent octave setting, I'll see how I like it. I didn't change the other cap, I like mine fat sounding, haha.

I'm looking forward to the two PCBs I'll be getting from you, though! :cheers:

Hello Does the LT44 works in this circuit?

It seems the ratio is 20 to 1 and not the 3 to 1 that is recommended.
