Hey it seems kinda late to be asking this (and kinda stupid) but im a total noob and i need to know what kinda pedal is that schematic for because ive been looking for a schematic for ages and i found one but i dont know what its for

thanks to anyone who answers my q

it's a simple clean boost.

forget what i last said instead could somebody please post a pic of how the circut is supposed to look cuse im having alot :icon_eek: of trouble

thanks again ;)

im new here
for the last few months ive been trying to build a fuzz pedal, but i couldnt get it working so im trying this boost now as it looks easier
what other easy projects are there on this site?

Hi guys,

Sorry to ask a newbie question but what kinda LED should I get for this project?

Thanks a bunch,

Cat

How do you read the schematics? :icon_rolleyes:

maybe it's already asked, but it won't be as many times as the question : "How do I read the schematics" ..... :icon_mrgreen:

what happens if I just add diodes to the output? will it make a distortion?

Like this :

-----------------------------
  |    |    |                     |
 --   \/   --                     |
                 <-------------------- output
 /\  --    --
  |   |     |
 __ __   __
  -   -     -

is this possible or am I wishfull thinking.
Let me know, because I'm still waiting for the stuff to come in and might go for a dive into my heap of components I have here.
I build a couple of things in the past and wanted to pick it up again as I was doing  CryBaby mods my self last time.

I'm joining the long line of beginners here, I have done some basic electronics at school and Im revising on everything. So I have a basic knowledge. But I don't understand is the effect that the transistor has on the pedal. What exactely does it do? I mean can I use any transistor? By having a socket and interchanging them does it produce a different sound? If so what range of transistors could I interchange back and forth from the circiut? I just dont understand whether I need a specific transistor, or whether any will suffice, and what effect different tranistors have on the sound the pedal produces. Thanks

Yes, changing the transistor will produce different "timbres". You can use any transistor that has similar specs to the 2N2222 transistor. If you go to your local electronics store and ask them for substitute transistors, they will be glad to give a number of transistors that will work in this circuit.

Aron,

you didn't get me or is my question that stupid?  ;D

So does that mean I can use similar transistors in any pedal I decided to construct?

depends on what pedal you are building, but you can always swap stuff out as long as they are equivalents

Can I use a 4K7 pot instead of 5k?

yes, 4.7K is fine.

Hi I've never made a pedal before and my electronic knowledge is pretty much non existent, So i might have alot of questions and they are probably pretty lame. My question is: Even though this is a clean boost will it work if I have a distortion pedal in front of it and still keep the distortion?

Yes. It will make your distortion pedal even louder.

Nice Thread, thanks for sharing your wisdom with noobs like me  ;D

I still have some questions though:
1) What should i look out for ,for NOT Buying (ie: I am not an expert in electronics and where i live the hardware stored are owned by illeterate thieves. (Who will probably ened up giving me all the wrong stuff)

2) Could you post us a list of what each different component does to a pedal.
(EX: Capacitor alters tone right?)
(how would you get a phased/distorted/fuzzy etc.. effect?)

3) Someone mentioned where protective gear . Do i really need any protective gear?

Someone just posted a component list but there's one in the threads. For protective gear you can use goggles if you want. As for what everything does, that's a little too complex to answer simply. There's a FAQ forum that you can browse through as well as the Wiki link above that should help you try and understand more.

Is there somewhere that explains the electronics through every component?  Example: from input, to .1mF cap which does ???.  Then this goes to ....


Thanks

This is not an easy task. The FAQ forum has a thread on components explained:

Please check out the FAQs and the Wiki as well as the FAQ forum.

As for what the signal might look like - you might want to check out circuit simulators which will allow you to "see" what happens to a signal as it passes through a circuit.
