Distortion Detector?
Optional subcircuit that lights an LED when the output transistors approach clipping. It's a pretty simple comparator that looks at the shape of the input waveform vs the output one and turns the LED on when they pass some threshold of difference.

Do it!

Bought an ART TubeMP to use as a direct box, and man does it sound fantastic, even more so now that I swapped in a Russian Mesa 12ax7.

You're a bad influence!

As an aside, does anyone else think Lehle pedals look absolutely incredible, aesthetically?




Wonderful looking designs IMHO.

I got a tube MP not long ago and I'm loving it too, it is just what I wanted and more. What differences the new tube make?

*edit I got the tube MP/C the one with the pre amp and compressor. Is that the same one?

Probably a little different, but the tube swap in mine increased my headroom and increased the gain a little.

Seriously? I mean obviously it's all subjective but I think they look great. There's a kind of starkness to the design that reminds me of Poggenpohl kitchens and Miele appliances (although admittedly they probably wouldn't have blatantly exposed Allen screw heads on their products).

If catphish was around right now I'm sure he would know the right design words and start talking about minimalism or brutalism or whatever.

I like how the knobs are recessed into that bank, it seems like they would be less prone to accidental adjustment.

Nope, I don't like it, though I do think recessing the knobs on a pedal is a pretty decent idea as C7 said.

And they should really countersink those screw heads if that's the look they're going for.

I've heard of amps and things that could automatically detect and adjust to the value of whatever mains supply voltage they are plugged into, but I hadn't heard of anything like this before:

Quote:
Q: What kind of power supply should I use for with my Basswitch IQ DI bass preamp?
A: The Basswitch IQ DI accepts all power supplies providing not less than 9V, not more than 20V and at least 130 mA. Either alternating (AC) or direct current (DC) sources can be used and the polarity is not relevant.

By which I mean I hadn't seen examples of the concept being incorporated into a pedal, not that I wasn't aware of the principles of rectification and so on.

This is actually not difficult to do from an engineering standpoint particularly since they are doing internal voltage doubling (with a boost converter I'm guessing). They just have a polarity switch, a rectifier and filtering ahead of the voltage doubler. A rectifier circuit will pass DC no problem, the only real concern is the diode drop when you're looking at low voltages. I'd assume they sourced low forward voltage diodes. It's a neat feature and not everyone would think of it. Probably not all that useful because most supplies 9-20V supplies would be DC anyway. The best part of this feature is the automatic polarity switching. Pretty easy to implement with a relay (solid state or mechanical) and a diode. I think this shows some savvy engineering on their part.

Like I said just a minute ago, this is savvy engineering. Using pretty simple ideas to come up with a neat feature.

I'm pretty happy with my gear these days.

I do have a lot of "win the lottery" dream gear, but for reasonable GAS, perhaps a Traynor 8x8 (shoulda never sold mine), another 2x10 and a Lowe P-Bird (or 2). Oh, and a jazz bass.

edit - and a Bongo 6 string in white.

Don't need loud, just need quality. Trying to get away without a sub, so probably some sort of tower speaker, though I have a customer coming out with a new 300w sub if need be. Something effective for TV as well as music.

I'll end up running a customer's upcoming integrated amp (2x150w 8r 2x300w 4r)

It's been a while since I looked at what's being offered out there in the commercial space.

There is a consensus that one can improve the bang for the buck ratio by going DIY, but most of the DIY cabinets end up being pretty rough looking.

Some interesting kit options here, some with cabinets milled from Corian or Bamboo:

So coincidentally the only other pair of speakers that was on my list just happen to show up on Craig's List, with stands and in the premium finish for about 60% of the new price and barely just a month old. The guy was also about 10 minutes from my office, so I went over durin lunch and picked them up. I'd listened to them a few years ago and was sad when I realized I couldn't use them in my current place. He even played a couple tracks for me and they were still as good as I remembered. All told about $650 cheaper than I was likely to pay for the Tannoys. Too bad I won't have a chance to set them up again for over a month.
