Delirium Tremolo
« on: February 26, 2014, 07:52:28 AM »
This is a modified version of the EA tremolo.  I've always really liked this trem, so I wanted one for my mini board.  The audio section of this sounds great, so I added an LFO bypass switch so it can be used as a boost instead of a trem.  I'm really happy with the artwork on this one; it's one of my favorites so far.

Every time there is a build posted I look, and every time I scroll down and say "God DAMN that is a beautiful build". Then I scroll up and see the Swedish chef and laugh. Good work man, love the graphics and the fact that you can cram anything into a 1590A and make it look perfect!

Fantastic! As always.
Is there a chance you make this PCB available? Or does anyone know of another 1590A tremolo? That's what's missing with my minis.

+1 I would like one as well! I would also like one of the pi phase 90 boards you did a while back too!

Sure, I can get some PCBs made.  I used this batch to verify and it's good to go.

Sure you're happy with the art, if we mere mortals had access to a laser engraver, we would love our artwork too, instead we have to use rattle cans and waterslide, and dream of being you!  :P Awesome build man! So now the question is, do you have a tiny guitar to go along with your tiny pedals and tiny pedalboard?
Pedal building is like the opposite of sex.  All the fun stuff happens before you get in the box.

Really nice! I like how you created a depth effect using only a limited monochrome palette. The layout isn't today bad either :)

I get nearly all of my caps from Mouser.  Which caps are you asking about in particular?

Well, even amongst the laser engraved builds this is one of my favorites.  :-)

No tiny guitar yet.  I guess that comes next.  Considering how poorly I play my mandolin, I don't have a lot of hope for it.   ;-p

They look like 1uf film caps...maybe Panasonic or poly film. They are the maroon square ones.

King of the 1590a builds. So much into so little I love it.

Yep, I get those from Mouser.  If you want, I can get you a part number later, but you can find them if you sort by:

Passive Components
Capacitors
Film Caps
Panasonic
5mm lead spacing.
