Hey guys, I bought this kit from small bear a long time ago and it's one of the best trems I've played. I wanted to make another to play around with dual trem madness, and I was hoping someone would be interested in making a stripboard layout. The kit comes with a Vactrol of some variety and it sounds really good.. Anyone here is the schematic I got from Google Images.
Hot Damn, Thanks MAO. I'm looking forward to giving this a go. I just graduated from Engineering school and I'm trying to find a job, so I doubt I'll be ordering parts till I'm gainfully employed! I appreciate you giving this a look, and to anyone who's even remotely interested, it's a DAMN good sounding tremolo. The way the controls all interact let you get some really nutty chop out of it. I'll be taking this on as soon as I can afford it! Thanks again MAO.
Hey MAO, I was hoping you could get me straight on how you do your wiring diagrams.. You have the blue circles that are wire hookup spots, are you indicating that the wire is soldered at the blue pad, and then if there is a leg that goes up or down a row from that pad, it's also connected?
For example, Level one, goes to the board, then there is a 1 row jumper that goes up one row, so is the wire fed through the hole at the level 1 row, soldered there, and then jumped up a row and soldered there too? I have never built any of your designs, and I got confused by this! Appreciate your hard work!
The big blue circles are holes to route the wires through the board. This acts as a strain relief and keeps the wiring from breaking off the board.
So, the wire for Level 1 attaches to the board at column 1, row 9. That wire then routes through the board at the blue hole at column 1, row 10 and comes out underneath the board and then attaches to the pot.
Finally got my ducks in a row and got a few things from small bear to finish this, just waiting for my VTCL53 or whatever. I also don't have any MPSA14s.. but it looks like it's just a 20k gain mpsa13.. I have a few of those I'll try. Thanks again MAO. :)
