First test of Tayda Electronics' UV printing service, less than $15 apiece including the powder coated enclosure:


PW3BLPF_TaydaBoxes.JPG

They are pretty picky about the graphics formats they accept and try to bully you into using Adobe Illustrator, which I did in this case. But it's entirely possible to do it in Affinity Designer instead and save your money for hookers 'n blow.

Those enclosures are for the newest version of this open source preamp that I started messing with in 2016: https://www.talkbass.com/wiki/pw3b-lpf-open-source-onboard-preamp/ . There's a simpler one without the bass and midrange sections as well.

It's up to you C. We can have this thread wherever you prefer... Right now Im learning our abilities, trying to create ares that users can harvest for thier needs, rtrying to break free of the "There can be only one - all threads become the main thread" thing. When I created this thread, I had you in mind... and I'll repost my Ampeg repairs and Pick Guard tutorials, when I can.

However, it also seems to hold the car stuff well? Right now Im just running it all up the flagpole. Having many unique areas, without having to sort through 1000s of mini threads

Cool J, let's just leave it here for now at least. I'm still feeling out the lay of the new land myself too of course.

Oh, and I haven't forgotten about the SCTMMC pedal idea either. I've been asked to design a couple of pedals for NAMM in June, maybe we can get your brand to the show if some things I'm trying pan out.

I have to check in with the other pedal maker who’s in the mix and work out who’s doing what. I know he already has a really good compressor ready to go, and he’s also a whiz with DSP stuff. Since I’ve been working a lot with filter preamps this year I’ll probably start there, with something like those boxes in the pic, and then add a few features like an HPF and maybe a PEQ band.

And then I’ll probably do an @Jim C noise toy since he’s all about the doomstortion. 😈 🦨🌈🎸

Doomstortion must wait just a bit, it’s coming as soon as I get my new tube amp finished though for sure.

Meanwhile I have an onboard preamp design to finish up for a series of these Sirena basses:

It’s gonna be three knobs now, not sure on the switches. Dude winds his own pickups, is doing his own bridges, chambered body core, good times.

Rarther than photobombing this thread with a bunch of janky old carp, here's the Passinwind fish hatchery memorialized in one easy stop:



There's plenty more where that came from, by all means post your own or anyone else's, either directly to this thread or in the media section with a link here.

Wow! The photo makes it look a little smaller than a credit card... Seriously trick.
Thumbnail size is way better! Ever think about using a tiny internal battery that could be charged via a 1/4" cable in the input jack?
