I just finished this one…December 13, 2018 at 12:42 am #3359MattParticipant
I dig it. The roughed up paint scheme is my go to style when I don’t have a graphic I feel like using. Was this a powder coated enclosure or did you paint it and then sand it down? Either way, I like the look. Nice job.December 13, 2018 at 1:52 am #3361AnonymousInactive
Thanks, I painted it and then sand it down.December 13, 2018 at 12:07 pm #3368
I would enjoy seeing what is going on on the inside.
I was also wondering if you considered adding an extra switchable stage (like a 1″x1″ Stage 3 Booster) on the inside to account for any circuit or group of circuits that would invert the phase?
Very nice and thank you for sharing.December 13, 2018 at 3:54 pm #3370AnonymousInactive
Barry that is exactly what I need to do because I have too many pedals that are not sounding right with Buff’n’Blend and having phase switch would be great from the start up. Would I need bigger box or is there a way to get it inside this one? Is there any schematic how to connect these two together? Thanks!December 13, 2018 at 5:02 pm #3372wilkie1Moderator
To add a Phase Correction, I suggest you add one of Barry’s Stage 3 boards. That will give you an added boost (when needed) and also correct for a phase mismatch.
SImply add this to the end of your signal with a SPDT switch to select it when needed. It’s small enough to fit inside your existing enclosure. The pot can either be a trimmer or external pot.December 13, 2018 at 5:07 pm #3373
We have a larger project with Phase Switch and more called the Paramix.
The Buff N Blend was designed more for using in tandem (in the same enclosure) with a single circuit that does not invert the phase or as Wilkie points out you can use a Stage 3 at 1″ x 1″ giving you phase switching.
For a multi purpose setup to be used with an ever changing array of pedals I highly recommend our Paramix.December 13, 2018 at 5:49 pm #3374AnonymousInactive
Is this the right one https://www.musikding.de/Stage-3-Booster-kit
Ok, if this is the one, I don’t get it which switch is for phase correction because SW1 is intended for bass guitar if I understand right.
<div>This in instructions: SW1 is a bass ready switch which allows you to add more bass frequencies. If you don’t wish to play bass, don’t install C3 or SW1.</div>
<div>I would like to have simple SPDT switch for turning boost off or on, not 3PDT…</div>

What I was saying is to send the output of the Buff N Blend to an SPDT switch to select either a direct output to the output jack or select the Stage 3 Booster INPUT which would then send its OUTPUT to the out jack.December 14, 2018 at 1:28 pm #3392
Yes what Wilkie Said. All you are doing is putting the Stage 3 circuit (always on) on a switch to either be in the Audio Path or removed. Again the Buff N Blend was designed to be used mostly with a single “main circuit” so it can all fit in a small enclosure.
We us the Paramix (link above) for a larger multi-purpose application as you are demonstrating above. Yours will still work however as Wilkie1 has pointed out.
