You could see if someone has some less sought after vactrols that you could trade your NOS ones for. Then you'd have more vactrols to play around with and someone who wants to build rare buchla stuff can.

A lot of good DIY advice is being dispensed in this thread that anyone could learn from. A few more things that I'd throw out there is get a tea or coffee that doesn't taste terrible, i find DIYing without a drink incredibly frustrating. Secondly try building a few passive modules point to point. Th...

Any of the fender red knob 185 series. Super loud, takes pedals well, cleans for days on both channels unless you use the gain which is basically just a built in fuzz pedal. Mines modified to have a master volume control so I can get it a bit quieter. Ugly as sin and apparently unreliable. However i...

Yep, figured instead of using one dual gang pot for resonance control I would use two single gang ones, It might add some interesting sonic posibilities. Same with adding a series mode. That might allow overdriving and will allow for some pretty steep filtering along with a whole bundle of other thi...

Looks much better now. Also I moved the text to above the knobs for consistency. Sadly I am somewhat limited for jack and potentiometer placementr by the pcbs I have been provided with.

I'm working on a filter for a customer and as this is my first computer aided front panel design i'd like to run it by you guys first.
