  • UBE Screamer 4069

    UBE Screamer 4069

    I wanted to do something a little more artful as a box. The Joy Division’s Unknown Pleasures has a very iconic image. I don’t know what the secret sauce of this image is but it’s very compelling. From what I read the image appeared in Scientific American 1971 and was described as “stacked plot” of […]

    UBE Screamer 4069

    This is a version of the UBE Screamer using the 4069 in place of the 4049. Essentially these chips are the same. They both contain 6 inverters. The 4049 is a 16 pin DIP while the 4069 is a 14 pin DIP. Electrically the should the same but the pin arrangement is different. The original […]

    UBE Screamer 1.1.1

    This is an update of the UBE Screamer board. Same circuit just revised. I had these boards fabricated at PCBWay.com. The quality is very great! The UBE Screamer is a very interesting take on the Ibanez Tube Screamer by RunOffGroove.com. It’s the general circuit topology of the TS-808 but uses CMOS inverters in place of […]

  • RunOffGroove UBE Screamer

    RunOffGroove  UBE Screamer

    This is another great RunOffGroove project. It’s a unique twist on the classic Ibanez Tube Screamer. The UBE Screamer replaces the op-amps and transistor stages in the Tube Screamer circuit with inverters from a 4049UBE hex inverter. I built this from a PCB I designed. The board is project on OSH Park. Check out the […]

  • UBE Screamer PCB v1.1

    UBE Screamer PCB v1.1

    This is the second version of the UBE Screamer board. This version fixes a mistake with the reverse polarity diode. I’m calling this ready for public consumption and will add it to the OSH Park projects pages soon. The enclosure is grounded through the jacks. The bottom cover though doesn’t make an electrical connection to […]

    UBE Screamer by RunOffGroove

    This UBE Screamer by RunOffGroove.com is a unique twist on the venerable Ibanez Tube Screamer TS-808. It replaces the op-amps and transistor stages with a single hex inverter using an inverter in place of each op-amp and transistor. This has a great sound that stands up to all of the other overdrives. Read more about […]

  • Zen Drive clone

    Zen Drive clone. Is this original boutique tube screamer?

  • Omnidrive

    Here’s a project that I built up some years ago. This never found it’s way into a box. I dug it out and decided to try and box it up. Difficult with the number of switches and knobs. I think I have a viable plan to shoehorn it into a BB sized. box. This is […]

  • Screamer

    Built Jack Orman’s Son of Screamer last night. Fired up the first time and sounds pretty good. I have not owned a Tube Screamer before. After building this I’m understanding the complaints about the “mid hump” in the sound. The sound is very focused in the mid range. There seem to be many mods for […]
