It’s a very nice, warm, full-tone preamplifier. The soul of the circuit is two BC109 transistors. These are old, well-proven types. Interestingly, the base of transistor T2 is connected to collector T1. This is called direct coupling, and the signal is transmitted between stages without attenuation. This means that there is no capacitor, resistor or transformer between the two transistors. This makes it less repressive to the guitar signal. This circuit does not distort, that is, only when the guitar volume is at its maximum.
This is the first version:
In this video it works on 9v voltage, see:
This is a fairly simple guitar overdrive circuit. A simple 2N5088 transistor as preamplifier and an LM741 opamp.
Tone Bender MK1 fuzz circuit with AC125 transistors.
For the next project, a 24V power supply is required. But no transformer is needed. The big, heavy, separate regulator (LM7824) should be added etc etc … And the consumption is just a few mAs. Well, then be DC – DC converter! The point was that 12v should be converted to 24V. Be simple with few parts. Therefore, choose the old, proven MC34063 circuitry. Not complicated:
R2 is two 1 ohms in parallel. This is not marked separately in the drawing. Here is the official MC34063 datasheet, which is worth studying.
Okay, this is a great product of the Princeton Company. This is PT2399 echo IC. It can make good guitar effects like: delay, reverb .. But if it’s original ..
Well, we got a fake IC. No PTC manufacturer, unknown “DTC”. Compared to the original, other exterior. And noisy, such basic noise is that: shhhhhhh(it). Oh no.. 🙁
Some pictures: electronics repair. The product name: Dynacord Eminent II. This is beginning to be manufactured in the mid sixties. Initially, all tube design, and later the transistor preamp and tone section. Meanwhile, little change in design as well. This four different input and tone control. A small band certainly met at that time.Well, let’s look at what is inside.
Let’s look at it:
So far, we do not really dealt with bass guitar effects, amplifiers. Here, in this time of change!
One of my favorite band The Beatles, inspired a new tube bass preamp creation.
The plates can hear great tunes and sounds of the XXI century it is significant. This’ 60s-edge
tone you want to give a little back. This simple, little preamplifier may be able to create a good bass sound.
Okay, what do we need? First, a simple tube preamp and a tone sections. And yet… put a little extra! Whether it is a switch which can give more prominence to the bass sound. And finally result in the power amp section. The tube 12AX7 or ECC83 should be. And we are ready to go.
As shown in a schematic diagram, not complicated circuit. The circuits are designed triodes ordinary way. Located between the two triode the tone control section. Here we must mention the little extras are what we promise you. It was built in the SW1 signal switch and capacitor C7. This will give even more powerful bass sound.
Even a small change in the circuit (well, not so little, the C8 is quite large capacitor). The C8 was originally 100nF, it was replaced with 1uF. Thus, it improved bass response with what is perceptible difference. Suggested type for a high-quality MKP capacitor. We conducted a little experiment, was left inside the 100nf and 1uf capacitor, one switch to choose between the two, and thus is connected to the output. so you can compare the two capacitor deep voice transmission. Feel free to experiment with different manufacturers and types of capacitors.
