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

Tone Bender Mk II

Project: Deimos (Tonebender Mk II)

Build description

I built this with a set of Texas Instruments 2G303 (PNP) transistors from Small Bear (http://www.smallbear-electronics.mybigcommerce.com) and used a 7760S charge pump to provide positive-ground. Biased properly, this circuit is the platonic ideal of fuzz.
