Verified! Built this a week ago and need to box it up.
Sounds killer with the Tele I got on Christmas.
Thanks for the layout, Storyboardist! :applause:
Now hoping a pcb layout for the Chicken Soup pops up. :wink:
fuck smooth tone, fuck eric johnson - Seiche

Hi guys, I have the first version without Mod built and two questions. Is it normal that the volume (hot switch off) at 12 o'clock pot position is quieter than when the Effkekt is off?
And what could be the fact that the Fat Pot has no influence on the sound?
sorry for my bad English

If it works both ways
It is equal to all overdrives, as lovepdal, jhs, timmy, jan ray, etc.
with some minor changes.

I really need help, the pedal has long been soldered and is in the case, but it annoys a loud clap when the 3PDT button is turned on. With another, there is no such problem, but it's very noticeable here. Thank you for any help, the pedal is very like.

Looks like it's the same board and circuit as the Rockett Animal, with different component values, so someone might like to work out those values from the pic in the other thread and we can solve that one also.

If someone does it and wants to send me the values I can easily update this schemo to the new values, and post it in the other thread.

Firstly.. here's a couple of pics:


I definitely see 4001 diodes, not 4007.
Do you?

All the Rockett pedals I have opened up have used 4001s, not 4007s. Not that it would make much difference either way. FWIW the Rockett Animal, Blue Note, Caliber 45 and Majestic are all very similar but have their own sound. I think for such a simple circuit they are amazing. My favourites are the 45 and the Majestic. The majestic uses a pair of Ge diodes with 4001s for clipping and this seems to round off the highs a little which can sound cool with a bright Les Paul (like mine). I love the lack of compression and full response at low gain.

One difference between these pedals is the value of the gain pot. The Blue Note has a 50K, the Majestic 100K, the 45 250K and the Animal 500K. I may have got some of these the wrong way around but you get the idea.

I put these overdrives next to some BJF style ODs on my board and they hold up incredibly well considering they use about 1/3 the components. And 1/5 what is in a Dirty Shirley! I like lower gain ODs so these suit me very well. And I would much rather one of these than any Klon.
