I'm so looking forward to that. The Little Angel is on my project list. Also on my layout making list though, since you'll probably want to keep it simple, and I want the mods ITT :)

(originally posted this in the Echo Base topic... silly me)
So I made a new layout for the Little Angel. It includes the dry/wet mod and the potentiometer on pin 6 mod. It should theoretically fit into a 1590a, too, although I haven't tried it - I can't source a 1590a box, and I don't have much time or money on my hands for the time being, either. But I think I'll find a couple of minutes to prepare and post the layout, if you're interested. This week, that is.

Well I was gonna save this as a surprise for LA's 1st birthday in August, but........




I wanted to keep it 1590A-able, but also add good things like the Pin 6 Fix and a seperate vref for the audio path. Here's the lowdown:

  • Pin 6 Fix: D1/C16/Q2/R21/R22
    I did add a little Pin 6 Fix subcircuit to a PT2399 that I know won't work without. It still has issues, but I think raising R22 to 100R and C16 to 47uF will sort it
  • Audio vref: R23/R24/C17 - suggested by merlinb as a way to reduce noise dumped into the older version's 5v vref supply by the PT2399
  • C4 changed to 3.3nF - might be a bit darker but will be less hissy
 
As it's planned to be 1590A-able, hopefully all the electro caps should be able to be bend over 900 to lie flat against the PCB. C16 might be the trickiest.

I PM'ed this layout last week to a couple of people who expressed interest in verifying it, so you never know, it could be verified within a day or so. The layout does need a little tidy up, as I notice the pad sizes are not all the same size.

Here is a little demo of my pedal. I added a 0.1uf cap across the 47uf one (in parallel) to get rid of some excess hiss.

Never mind the playing, just demoing the pedal  :)

Well, I did have some hiss. I also placed the additional cap across the 47uf one and after the recording also replaced the 1nf cap that connects leg 15 and 16 of the pt2399 with a 3.3nf cap. Makes the sound a tad darker, more in line with the dry signal, and removes the leftover hiss.

Very satisfied with this pedal.  :)

Ah, I might do that in another demo, but I prefer chorus in an otherwise clean signal :-)

Hello guys! I'm from Brazil, and it's my first time here. I found this topic and I liked a lot. Than, I decided to make a Little Angel. I've got the components and I build it, but didin't worked. I plugged my guitar, and befote I turn on the Little Angel, the sound's guitar is normal, but when I turn on, I don't hear any noise more. I've verificad, there is no point of short circuit. This is the model that I follow:  http://imageshack.us/photo/my-images/39/111xl.gif/. I think I made a mistake somewhere, but someone but someone has already built this circuit and it worked correctly?? One more doubt, I just find this layout: http://imageshack.us/photo/my-images/4/layout1111.jpg/ . I tried to print several times, but the size was not the same as the circuit, so I did another by following links from this, only then could the actual size for the components. At least that part I know is right because I checked several times. I'd like to know how you get to print the same size as real. If I do not think the problem the way I did, I do it again with the original layout. Later I'll post some pictures of this project, other guitar pedal and also my amp, I did it by myself, all are very simple but work fine. Please help me! See you later, thanks a lot!!!

I'm back! I found the problem, there were some poins of short circuit. I turned on and worked. But, I think that the sound wasn't good as a delay. Is someone has the same pedal build?? I 'd like to hear the sound, and compare whith the my. I 'll poste the sound of my, then you listen and tell me to know what you think of this. Here the video of my amp: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y_j7QtAaLX4
I connect my guitar on this amp, using other pedal as a preamplifier(that has a fuzzy efect too), and I get a good result. Thanks!!

I'm back again!! Today I recorded the sound of the Little Angel. I don't know if the sound is normal, I think that there is something wrong. This is the link of the sound of the Little Angel(only this) : http://www.4shared.com/audio/F5Pk6aIe/4_online.html . There is more one: http://www.4shared.com/audio/K4kVwhRR/sound2.html. Now I mixed the sound of my fuzzy and the ange: http://www.4shared.com/audio/lEgE96wL/fearfuzzydelay.html. PS: I don't play guitar very well, nay, I'm very bad Oo. Now some pictures of them(I put them in a pack .rar to facilitate) : http://www.4shared.com/file/E303rpDQ/Pictures.html . All files don't have any virus!! Please tell me what you think about the sound, and the pictures to =]. Bye.

Verified!

Not too hissy and works with all the PT2399's I have here even with R22<100 ohms.

I used a 2N5087 instead of a 2N3906 and two tiny 4.7uf in parallel for C16. Also went with the film 180nf caps as all the .1's I have are too big or ceramics.  I socketed R22 and using a 51 ohm resistors slows down the delay time a bit more. I think I will try a 100KC (as per Slade) for the speed pot to see what if I can spread the range adjustment out.

Thanks Rick!

Cheers,
Chris

Just finished my LA the other day and I'm pretty satified with it. I'm able to get lots of different cools sounds from it. I wanna give your birthday edition a go since I like this last one so much. And great job on making it super simple! Are there any other mods I can try besides the adjustable delay time and wet/dry pot?  :)

So is there an updated schematic with these fixes...?

If so I might do an Onboard Pot 1590B with room for battery PCB...
