I made the version that sells pedalpcb and does not have any noise, neither in high gain settings :hmmm:

Just finished mine also. The owner is very pleased!
ZTX951 version (thanks Bajaman!), very nice for low gain and everything in between(which is what he wanted, not over the top stock), and I also made the internal trimpot, external.
Left everything else stock.
Thank you all! (and thanks Alex from tagboardeffects!)
(this is my 121st build)

Some pics and a youtube sample (Peavey 6534+ / Carvin DC200C)

I made one of these with a pcb I did on OSHPARK and it is not noisy at all... pedal rocks in fact. No oscillation at all and I am using the 1N5817 diodes all the way around, red LEDS. Was using it today thru a Mesa Lonestar classic and it gets that nice krang thing going :applause: Tossed a clone of a soulbender in front and WOW... talk about notes singing LOL

Yep, saw that yesterday and got on the email notification.
Curious if the channels are going to be identical, or if one channel will be lower gain like the original. Would be cool to have the option of two BE circuits, or two DS, OR one DS/one BE.

Really looking forward to it and will order when available.

BE-OD Deluxe, tight on a knob instead of a toggle, looks like a winner if you like over the top gain.
IMHO I would rather stick with just a single BE-OD and toss a boost in front.

Anybody tried running one of these with a 500K gain pot instead of 1M?
I did that with a Dr. Boogey years ago and that made a big difference in the range I could work with; I plan on trying that with this and the DS-OD.

not much difference,it also depends how you set the trimmer internally,but probably you will get more control with a log pot instead of the linear one.

Got in on the first batch - they've sold out already. Should be here on Monday, but the build docs aren't updated yet.

Got my board last week and populated over the weekend.

Buggs released the build docs, so they are available!

I will be building EXACTLY per docs as baseline and see how it turns out and report back.

Got it all built! However, not working. Something is off (I think wiring), but it's too late I'll troubleshoot tomorrow.

Bypass works. When I click the pedal on, the left LED lights up, but hear popping and fluttering when strummed, but not real signal. Pressing the right switch, the LED doesn't come on and no output at all!! When I hit the strings harder, I can see the 2 internal LED's light up, so it appear input signal is getting to them! I think something wrong with the wiring.
