i thought I would be smart and buy the Psycho box from Gitty and install it into my 2.5 watt amp I bought from Gitty. Also I had found a wiring diagram for wiring in a power adaptor so I could run a…Continue
I'm done with building my CBG now it's on to playing it. From the pic you can see where I put the strap button. Bad thing about that location is that the guitar isn't balanced. As soon as you let…Continue
"I had a single coil pickup that was very microphonic installed in a hollow body guitar that squealed like a stuck pig. It was good for playing Ted Nugent stuff, but nothing else. I fixed it by wrapping the bottom and sides with some foam. Worked…"
"Sounds to me like the psycho nob was picking up some interference in the box if it only had a problem in the box and worked ok out of the box. Making a baffle partition may help.
Walwart type Power Supplies can also cause noise in these…"
"the easiest way to go is the 3 watt guitarfuel board it has the added effects built in already they have the scam tics for boots to your amp board guitarfuel sells a few different versions i find it easier to use a jumper…"
"I tried that, if the Psycho in the box it cracked, outside of box. No problems. I have great pedals I could use if I wanted a separate pedal. It’s a bad experience, I’m going to try to repIr the box today and cover the places with decals."
"One idea, don't remove the psycho knob, instead give it its own input/output jacks so you have the option of bypassing it, daisy-chaining it with your amp, of using the psycho knob only as a pedal for when you plug into the PA system.
I've had this similar issue with the Artec amps (not the psycho amp) but it is the exact same crackle sound you are getting. It happens when one of two things occurs, if I'm at shows and people decide they're going to see…"
"Final decision, it was a mistake to even try to install the Psycho kit in my amp. I ended up cutting holes in my beautiful little amp for the desire to have a little more overdrive and more volume. I’m going to try to repair my…"
"If you are running both the Gitty amp board AND the Psycho board from the same power adaptor, there may not be enough amperage to power everything...
The pops and cracks might be similar to how some people install car stereo systems that draw…"
i thought I would be smart and buy the Psycho box from Gitty and install it into my 2.5 watt amp I bought from Gitty. Also I had found a wiring diagram for wiring in a power adaptor so I could run a adaptor like what you do on guitar pedals. I drew up a wiring diagram and did the install today. The power side looks like it’s working just fine, but the Psycho Box sounds horrible. Pops, crackles, just sounds terrible. I don’t see where anything I did would cause those problems. I had a…See More
