Re: Show us yr DIY!

Maybe use a cheap lightswitch dimmer in place off pot? Probably easier than building a circuit yourself. Good idea, but I'll probably shelve this one away so the point is moot. No sense investing more $ in a one-trick pony. PS doesn't phone stuff run on DC 24-48V Probably, but I don't have a bench ...

Re: Show us yr DIY!

phone bell 120vac (111217).JPG On the fence about this one. It's a bell ripped from a rotary phone and put in a box with a contact mic. Footswitch alternates between contact mic recording bell (with pot controlling voltage/current through bell) and bypass with no power to bell. Might remove pot as ...

Re: wooden shaker boxes?

I had an idea once to create an album using only wood and wood instruments, without by processing or effects, so in essence it'd be a hnw of trees falling, lumber work, clackers etc.

The cover would be a defaced copy of one of The Carpenters' LPs

Re: post dream gear

Even better: combine Buzz and Meat boxes into one unit, call it the Cone Shredder per MKULTRA's suggestion .

Re: Troubleshooting Zoom H4

Hmmm, interesting. I heard about unity gain before but never paid it any mind. I did some more research after reading your reply and found this: http://www.dvxuser.com/V6/archive/index.php/t-249646.html Meter readings going over 0dB make no sense on a digital peak reading meter. At 0dBFS, all the bi...
