You got me a bit interested, so i went on to read more about logic gate examples. And I just traced the Beavis drawing; it is a 100% replica of the Juggler. But I think it is easier to do a neater job. This takes a lot of the potential wiring problems out of the troubleshooting equation. I don't know why but my build just feels more solid than before.
I had been hoping that it might be possible with relays or something, but because I will have two pedals in one enclosure, it's going to be a bit of a tight squeeze as it is, an extra circuit just ain't gonna fit. Anyway thanks for any advice and thanks for a great site. A silicon transistor fuzz face clone. Selected Stompbox Schematics Note that not all of these schematics are guaranteed to work. As for the right-hand column, there is not much going on there. What is the Insanity Box? The vero works well now but the momentary switch has to be pressed and held down so that effect work. Ah, ok, so let me see if I got this straight.
Some Boolean algebra is needed to create a circuit that would do that. If you are using a well regulated supply, it will put out nominal voltage no matter what the load. This schematic probably missing 100K resistor from base to ground on the 3rd transistor stage. It radically changes the sound of the pedal. You can order boards for the above. So here is what I have gained in my fist few projects that I think are particularly helpful to noobs like us: 1.
See the negative terminal of the battery should go to the middle connectore, not the tip as noted in the schematic. Would it just be input from board to lug 1 and output to board from lug 3, and then just jumper lug 1 and 2 with Cap-A and jumper lug 2 and 3 with Cap-B? In a similar vein, I suppose that you could try 1N914 and 1N4148 diodes for their harsher sound and put then into the circuit. So there it is—another super-simple passive pedal you can make for yourself and the necessary last piece in my trilogy of simple projects. But a pot would be the best! The can has a narrow ridge around it about a sixth of the way up. All works fine if I put a battery snap on. I haven't used logic gates since I was in college, 22 years ago, and I seem to have forgotten more than I ever actually knew in the first place. In other words, a bypass is in operation.
Do not solder it yet. Normal guitar pedals distort too easily with synth level input and was hoping changing input values would give me better control of volume levels. You can fit a treble bleed capacitor across the middle and left tags of the A500K potentiometer if you want to avoid this. Is there a better way to connect the two. This pedal is good for heavier distortion settings. Mark, can you do me a favor and add to the offboard section a daughterboard that I can use to replace a capacitor on the main board? An alternate implementation uses 2N508s Ge transistors and a 9 volt battery. Three Billy Goats Gruff, the Three Stooges, triodes, voltage triplers, and triplets—you get the idea.
Oh and I should add that there is more than one way to wire up a stomp box. This is also known as a star ground. While it clamped, it took about 3 to 4 seconds to recover. Doug has worked a while on this design and it promises to be very good. Mods: The input cap is critical; for classic fat fuzz tones use 2.
Well in that case the third diagram may be what you need. I do not recommend this circuit. In some cases i have needed to add another resistor between the cathode and that lug for some colors, as the brightness isn't even on all three. The circuit should go from soft clipping all the way to heavy overdrive. This side should then match the layout. Capacitors are just the opposite, the lower the value the brighter the tone will be when the Tone control on the guitar is turned down.
Then encase that whole mess in the regular true bypass switching. I will try it in th morn. On the back of the shaft? Check out this on Also a from the same site. I am going to make this socketed daughterboard with a pot. Solder a wire from the back of the tone control to the back of the volume control. It's the not-too-newbie that has a few successes that need reminded that after trying a couple of times, maybe there's something that they don't quite get yet. Solder a wire from Tab 3 of Stage 1 to Tab 1 of the Volume pot.
Flannery would also be useful in a pedal setup: Determine where you want to pad the signal and insert Flannery. Yes I am using my power supply I use for all my 3 pedals. From Jack Orman: Since the supply of 2N388A transistors have been depleted at Parts Express, I thought I'd post a few alternate devices that they carry that can be used for F-F construction.
