Component Spreadsheet

Post by Graham Pearson » Fri Dec 09, 2011 12:23 pm

NOTE: There's a link to the current version of my component spreadsheet in my following post. You can download this Excel spreadsheet if you wish.

Several members of this forum, including Rob at Jaded Faith, have commented on the fact that Randall tweaked resistor and capacitor values for each module almost on a daily basis. In spite of this, I am enthusiastic about updating the component spreadsheet.

Wherever resistor and capacitor variations exist, I can note this on the spreadsheet. This will help all the do-it-yourself modders out there. At least you'll know which components are likely candidates for experimentation.

Please PM or EMAIL me with values for any of the modules I don't already have listed, and if you are sending me values for modules that are already listed, please indicate those values that differ from the spreadsheet.

I'll include component values for stock modules and signature modules but I WILL NOT include values for modules that have been modded by a professional modder such as Jaded Faith

would it be bad taste to hope for the addition of stuff like the Brahma, Grail, KH-1,2 etc?

Not bad taste at all ... I don't have any of those modules so I need folks to volunteer that info. The current spreadsheet includes ALL modules I currently own plus those that others on this forum have submitted to me by email.

XTC With Black Faceplate

Post by Graham Pearson » Tue Jan 24, 2012 10:30 am

Elsewhere on this forum, there are comments about the newer XTC with black face plate being better than the older silver or black-stripe versions.

So far, my component spreadsheet has component values for the XTC black-stripe version.

Is there anyone with a black face-plate XTC who'll volunteer to add component values to the spreadsheet? If so, we would all benefit from comparing values between the 2 versions.

I'd offer up the Judge and Brahma values but it would be a pain in the ass using a resistor chart to make sure i got the values right. How about i post some gut shots and then let you know the value of all the caps? The resistors are self explanatory for someone who can figure out the values based on the bands. (I consult a resistor chart or app that lets me know what value the resistor is)

Hello everyone,

I'm new to the forum and have been following a few threads for interest. I happen to have the newer all blackface XTC module. I'll be happy to add the specs and submit. You all seem like a great bunch of tone chasing junkies and I'd love to jump in. Give me a day or so to get this info in.

Any update on getting any of the newer modules into the Spreadsheet (Lynch and Ian mods).

I'd love to see these added to the database if people are up for submitting values.

I can submit values for the Judge to add to the database if that helps if no one has submitted info for that yet.

Although it would be off-topic, maybe we could post this request elsewhere to get a kind soul to provide the values or some darn good pictures :)

For looking up resistor values, you can use this to enter the color codes.

Or for a nice cross reference on cap values between pf, nf, uf -- this is what I use.

Thanks to the OP for this. I'm getting ready to put some Zoso mustard caps in a Top Boost. Has anyone tried this? wondering what to watch out for and how well the sound will improve...

You might not notice much improvement initially, maybe a bit more clarity. From what I?ve read and my limited personal experience, they take a lot of play time to break in and get better over time.

I did the swap on a Plexi module and basically copied a Voodoo Amps modded module as far as which caps to replace but used the values listed in the spreadsheet for a stock plexi. I had already done the bass and gain mod and had played it like that for a while so the cap change wouldn?t be confused with other changes. As I said, the change wasn?t dramatic and barely noticeable. I did the same with a Bman module and the results were the same. The Bman has had more hours on it since the cap change and sounds very nice. The plexi sounded real good too but I sold it a while back.

Here's the plexi:

Synergy: SYN2, Friedman DS, HBE
Self Modded: Egnater B'Man, SL2X
Amps: VHT 2/50/2, RM50, Landry LS100 G3, Splawn Quick Rod, Marshall 6100LM

Does anyone have copies of the spreadsheets or updated links?
