Procyon / Honey Bee
A lot of fun to build, thanks to Aion’s very good documentation!
The pedal sounds very good and proves very versatile. From avery good clean boost to nice crunch. In particular I do like the Nature control and the tone shaping options it gives. From chimey bell like tone to smooth and fat grit. It works well with my amp (Hughes and Kettner Tubemeister combo) and booster (a SHO clone). Even with a modded DS-1.
Very inspiring pedal!
Modifications or part substitutions
I compared red and green leds and settled with the green ones.
I’ve tried the alternative values for C10 and C9 as suggested in the build documentation. Raising C10 from 4,7nF to 22nF made the sound a bit fatter, but also caused it to break up sooner. Also I missed somewhat of the sparkle at the lower value. For C9 I tried the lower values (15nF and 10nF), this did somehow open up the tone, but not on the whole range of the nature pot. It made the peal les subtle to my ears, a bit more harsh. I ended up with the original values, which in my set up and to my ears this give the best tone over the whole range of the Nature control. Of course this is all very subjective!
