Can I substitute a 510k ohm resistor for a 470k ohm resistor? Will it matter?
And likewise, a 51k for a 47k?
It's for a TS808 circuit. I could go to JayCar and buy the right ones, but can't be arsed making a special trip if it won't make a difference in the long run.
The 510k is in the input buffer which basically sets a high impedance. 470k will result in slightly lower impedance so you might hear less high end, but you won't likely hear any difference.

The 51k is in the first gain stage. A 47k will result in slightly less gain but again you probably won't hear the difference (118 vs 116 with 51k/47k respectively).

I need to build one of those pedal testers, would save a lot of hassle when testing pcbs.

Bit warm to work outside, luckily found enough bits to make a Zendrive to fill a few hours this afternoon while enjoying a small breeze 😁

Finally got around to drilling the casing, my least fav job. (Well, that and labelling)

Tried a few different opamps, settled on the TL072, but with the socket easy enough to swap. (Not much difference between most tbh)

LM833 and NE5532 mostly, nothing too exotic
Side by side I think I still prefer 'The Dude' clone I made a while back, but not much in it

I must try one of those mini footswtich boards on my next build, they make it look so much tidier on the inside. And I imagine makes it a bit easier?

I have hundreds if you'd like some. They're made for true bypass wiring.

Yer, if you have sausage fingers like me they save a heap of time and frustration!

They are pretty handy. I used one in my one and only PedalPCB build and it worked a treat.

I'd hazard to guess that unless you are an expert at desoldering or used the minimum amount of solder to secure the switch in place, you'd be hard pressed to reuse it without potentially damaging the board if the switch fails for whatever reason. Some of that grey ribbon cable would finish it off nicely however.

I have done it using solder wick and it wasn't too bad. I usually have a few spare boards, so probably wouldn't bother most of the time unless desperate.
Funny you mention the ribbon, I'm up to about the 12th build now over the last few years, and each time I say the same thing... and then never buy any :lol:
