Liquitone, please link to the schematic. It's required. You should still be able to edit your post (it's been less than 24 hours).

Stomptown - very nice.

Liquitone - there is a bit too much there to cope with in one sitting. Very cool. Is this an original circuit, and will you be sharing the schem?

thanks! It's basically a uni-vibe with stereo output and some mods from R.G.keen's articles. yeah, my post will be updated with a schematic today.

Ah man, I'm not sure if I'm going to be able to get an entry in. I ended up reshuffling all my holidays so I've only just got back home.

Four days to:

Plan pedal
Build pedal
Beautify pedal
Record demo
Do all description and stuff




Also, the only enclosure I have is a 1590A. It's going to have to be small and impressive...
Piss poor playing is why i make pedals.

Thanks, I'll need it! If I'm honest, I entered to support a good competition. This will (hopefully) be my second complete build so I'm really not expecting too much. Especially with these beautiful pedals already entered!

oh $#17, i guess i better get my crap together. haven't had a minute to build... i built the prototype, and it's working, but i gotta draw a schematic, do a vero layout, shoot a video and build the damn thing so i can use my usual horrible boxing technique and submit my humble entry.
all i can say is it may melt your brain tonally, but if there's an ugly duckling award, i'm goin' for it... lol.

IF i get a chance.... so far, looks like forfeit may be necessary, in which case i'm jazzed just to help get it funded to make it happen.

see you all soon... or WILL i?

;)

peace out... my god some astounding builds...

Name of entrant: Perrow / Pelle
Pedal name: Bemired Ikon Ten

Tell us a bit about the pedal: It's a Tonebender Mk II. This was to be is my first use of a bunch of germanium npn transistors (AC176) I bought a while ago, but sadly, even though I've tried all I can think of I couldn't get them to bias correctly. I finally got what was wrong with the biasing and I'm quite pleased with the result.

I post a layout with the standard values (as found on fuzzcentral, the Tonbender Professional Mk II schematic (although the 5 and 50 uF caps are changed to 4.7 and 47 respectively). In my pedal I had to drop the collector resistor on Q2 to 22k to get Q2 to bias, but I guess that's germanium for you.

As I like to do when I can, all wires going to the switch are positioned in the center of the layout as close to the switch as possible and the power is connected close to the dc jack. The pots are board mounted (but, on this design, requires a little distance to the board so they don't touch the ground path going under the volume pot). The led is board mounted on the track side of the board. This arrangement means that the led must be adjusted to about the right height and the hole for the led needs to be quite close to where it needs to be (it can be adjusted a few millimeters), but all this minimizes off board wiring and really makes it a breeze to do it nice.

What's with the name?: Well it's an anagram (the same characters mixed up) as "Tonebender Mk II", used an online anagram generator to come up with the name. Don't worry if you don't/didn't know what bemired means, I had to look it up too. It means something has got mud on it. So the meanings are.

Bemired: It's a dirt pedal with bemired graphics and knobs.
Ikon: The Tonebender is an iconic pedal.
Ten: Ten year anniversary.

Sound sample, first clean, then about 1/3 gain, then gain all the way up. Boring playing included free of charge.

Seeing the competition I'm hoping there'll be a last place open for my entry  ::)

Well, well, at least I finished another pedal.

Very nice Pelle. How do you like the circuit with the Ge vs Si transistors?
