ECC83 tube based guitar preamplifier. First test.
Once again an interesting circuit. Okay, to combine it with a tube preamp and a fuzz face! What happens if a small powerful tube amplifier, and combined with the classic fuzz effect? What kind of sound will be the result?
LM386 overdrive: easy, cheap, and fast to make. This is known and popular audio amplifier circuit with a fairly simple but good sounding overdrive guitar effect. Neither the operation of the complex.
BS170 mosfet guitar signal to the already worsened. the R8 potentiometer regulates the amount of signal to the 386. If you have more than that the chip can handle, then the signal will be distorted. That is, the “overdrive“. So it is quite dry and rough sound. And of course it’s good for us. Listen to:
The high voltage tube guitar preamplifier project is an adaptation of the famous tube preamplifier to suit the DIY’ers demands. Searching the net, I’ve never come across similar idea, so I decided to share this version of our very popular design. This a classic, conservative design, that easily matches other musical devices.
The preamp contains one channels of real-tube, high-gain circuit. This circuit uses JJ ECC83 (12AX7) tubes. Circuit uses a stabilized 12V DC voltage.
It is a low voltage tube preamplifier, specifically guitar preamp. Uses 12AX7 or ECC83 tube. No complicated circuit. The circuit is similar to the famous old guitar amplifiers bright channel. Low voltage operation, does not require a separate anode and output transformer.
