Original tracer layouts for classic pedals
« on: April 26, 2010, 01:00:55 PM »
 Hi Guys,

Trying to gather a collection of Original tracer layouts for classic pedals like the Tycobrahe Octavia, Dallas Rangemaster, ToneBender & so on.

 Got a couple so far....but would love more!

What are tracer layouts? Are they just home made scale copies of an effects pedal PCB layout?

Yes basically,  (Used to restore or make as authentic clones as possible of vintage pedals)

Cool, I could make a nice scale copy of the original 70's gray DOD 250 Overdrive PCB layout if someone can tell me the boards dimensions. I already have a pseudo layout made with DIY Layout Creator but would like to make a scale version proportional to PCB photos of it. I also have a broken MXR Distortion + pedal that I want make a layout of too.

Original 70's gray DOD 250 Overdrive PCB layout would be very cool if you can do it (Regards scale, you can used the LM741CN chip pins as a guide as we know the pin spacing is 2.54mm)

Reworked the old “TRIANGLE” BIG MUFF π - VERSION 1 1969-1973 that's been floating about.

Free web space is a bitch.

Sometimes when I click those links I get an ad page with a "skip this ad" option. Other than that, fortunecity has been a fine host for all these years.

That can't be right. A PCB 70.91 millimeters wide = 2.8 inches wide and the DOD enclosure is only 2.6 inches wide on the outside! Based on photos I have it should be around 2.2 inches wide.

I'm accessing it from a government site that has firewalls and protection up the wazoo.  I receive no such alarms.  I've been accessing and referencing that site for several years now.  Proceed with confidence.
