circuits

paper

here are some of the circuits i’ve built over the past year or so, i’ll give this page more organization later

mic pres

mic pre mic pre

built into repurposed Heathkit enclosures out of vintage opamp labs components. One for myself, one went to Berlin. Switchable input impedance between 600 and 50 ohms. Stepped gain on mine, variable on the other. vintage meters.

pedals

trona

I’ve built a few of these now. completely discrete synth + boost.

trona

Im tired of debugging one offs, despite how good they turn out. Time to do a small run of drum machines. Synth + Boost … . #diyaudio #guitarpedal #knowyourtone #diypedals

germanium fuzz mic pre

built myself a #germanium #fuzz face (mostly), cause when dont you need some nice #saturation? Plan to use for #mixing and with my banjo. Can honestly say it kills any silicon fuzz - #neveragain. Would be happy to build one for anyone, pretty cheap too! Hmu!

two touch

Finally got this #synth done. Two sine wave generators made chaotic by exposing the circuit to the world via screws on the top. Made using the bpards I had printed up, now that ive done it once im ready to make the next a bit more exciting
