Basic Audio Circuits – Following steps, not creating them.

Current interests – audio circuitry, both old and new.

quite curious about vacuum tubes, but working backwards towards them using op amps and transistors.  DIY projects that have warnings like ‘Careful, LETHAL voltage’ are something to work up to, not dive in green.

Successfully built the following:

http://www.instructables.com/id/Simple-overdrive-effect-pedal/step2/The-schematic/ (this one you can connect a small speaker to output rather than inline to a combo amp.)

Working on fuzzface now.

Also working on the Matsumin Valvecaster (http://www.beavisaudio.com/projects/ValveCaster/)

Built a ‘prototyping’ station specific to audio circuits.  I use a project board from Radio Shack and the housing from an old netgear router.
