Deimos MK II Tonebender

Project: Deimos (Tonebender Mk II)

Build description

Trapezoid box from Mouser with toner transfer graphics topped with orange alcohol ink and several coats of clear satin. Trannies are a matched set of 2N404s from LIC Pedals. All other parts from Small Bear. Like all the aion boards I’ve built, this was a piece of cake. Nice vintage fuzz tones.

Build description

Easy to build
I got my OC75s from smallbear and with them came replacement resistors for certain parts. I tried it first with the resistor values as per the schematics but it didn’t sound right no matter how I tried to bias it, but after replacing the resistors the sound was amazing. I had to change R1 to 5k so that I could get Q1C to be high enough. The only other modification I did was to change R5 to 1.5k so that the output volume would be louder.

Modifications or part substitutions

R1 5k
R3 15k
R4 120k
R5 1.5k
R6 6.2k
