|Daniel R. Haney||Green Rhino is TS808 clone|
I may be the last to have figured this out, but...
I got a look inside a Way Huge
Green Rhino pedal. It is a tube screamer
design with the JFET switching removed and
true bypass in its place. Parts quality is
top notch, audiophile grade in many places.
Has the same old 1N4148 diodes for clipping.
The emitter follower sections were TO-18
form 2N2484's (hfe=250, NPN, small signal).
The op amp markings had been sanded off.
(Markings?? We don't need no steenking markings!)
The Green Rhino sounds like a low-noise TS-808
with rough edges removed. At $150, it costs as
much as a vintage TS-9, half of what a vintage
TS-808 does, but sounds better than both of them
and is guaranteed for life. sheesh.
I can do this, I just know I can.
How do I get those 3PDT Carling switches again?
