Sorry... not trying to be an a-hole or anything. I thought your pedal was AMAZING! The first thing I did after seeing/hearing it was look to see how I could build my own or have some PCBs fabbed and that was when I noticed that there was no other way to do it other than to order them from you.

I deal with a fab house all the time and I can get GREAT discounts if I want a few boards made from time to time. That is why I suggested the Gerber share.   :icon_redface:

Although, I will say that everyone thus far that has shared a layout has done it completely and without a time limit. I would think that should be universal  ;D

It is up to the judges now and I will go with whatever they decide.  8)

@Greg: I do not think bad of you and you have every right to mention the rules in that case.
@Jon: Sorry for the confusion. Let me know what the judges decide on the requirements. I will try to align but what I do not want is that "my" boards do show up for sale from someone else on the net.
If this disqualifies me so be it.

Layout I used: https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/1849818/published_images/perf1.png
PLEASE NOTE: There is an error in the layout, don't use it. It is just for reference.


Cant wait to build this! Can we expect a updated layout at some point?  :icon_biggrin:

For those who want to know, C10 is not connected correctly, that's all. It should connect to pin 14 instead of pin 15.

And it' s C8 in the schem.

Just a suggestion - couldn't thofmann's entry simply be considered as being submitted with a 3rd party PCB?  He'd not get the bonus points of course, but the rules don't require either an original layout or a non-commercial board, and these are after all commercial boards are they not?  Yes?  No?  I am an idiot?  :)

EDIT:  The idea here is so that he doesn't have to share the layouts or gerbers.

I think IC1 is shown the wrong way around. It shows pin 1 on top-right.

Here is my 2nd entry; the Deluxe Tremolo.

The idea of this pedal started when I read about the Cardinal Tremolo by Midwayfair. I had never heard of harmonic tremolo before, but it got my interest straight away.
After reading about what harmonic tremolo was and listening to a few examples on YouTube I decided I wanted to try and build one.
I took the non-scientific approach and connected my old standard trem to the breadboard and started playing with different value capacitors and resistors between the preamp- and output stage.
It didn't really sound like a harmonic tremolo so I ditched that idea, however the sounds I did get where interesting enough to keep the project going anyway.
Considering the low parts count of this addition to the standard tremolo I thought it might be possible fitting it inside the existing small 1590BB enclosure.
I decided on having only one additional knob for the extra preset sounds along the standard trem sound, instead of having too many knobs to tweak.
The old tremolo I designed using the building blocks of the uni-vibe, and with the capacitor back in place between the collector of Q3 and the base of Q4 it is now sort of a 1-stage uni-vibe/tremolo.

Man, that's weird.  ???

Occasionally this sort of thing happens because of Flash issues. Apps might use HTML5 or use a video codec directly while some browsers use Flash. You can try updating Flash or go to http://youtube.com/html5 and opt in. Don't know if it will fix this problem or not.
