Airmed – My Take on a Simple Phaser

Here’s my take on a simple two stage phaser similar to Phase 45. I called this pedal – Airmed – The Healer. For previous posts have a look here. As usual you can skip to the video and come back later for diagrams. The Healer? Airmed was an Irish goddess associated with healing. When king […]

Micro Thunder Boost – Ver2

I continue working on my micro boost effect. After the first take and doing some more research on noise, I decided to go with the 2nd version of the board. I did very small changes to the original circuit, keep on reading for the new schematic and other photos. You can skip straight to the […]

Micro Thunder Boost – Noise

I continue working on my micro boost effect. I wasn’t entirely happy with the noise performance from the first take. I wanted to investigate a bit more. How did it go? See the video. Links can be found in section where I’m trying to make sense out of all of this ?. Intro As a […]

Micro Thunder Boost Design

I was thinking for a while to create a booster that is as small as possible. Ever since I bought an old guitar that was sitting unused on someone’s attic for 15 years I was thinking what could I do with it. I have a thing for Ibanez guitars … I don’t know, I just […]

Clíodhna – PCB Version

All the work is done for our Super Screamer, or is it? What if I do a PCB version of this, just for fun? PCBWay said they’d gonna send me some prototyping boards for free right around the time I was finishing the pedal. So I said why not, let’s design a PCB version of […]

Simple Phaser – Playing with LFO

And in true spirit of overdoing it, after playing with our phaser components, let’s look into LFO. For previous posts have a look here. As usual you can skip to the video and come back later for diagrams. In this article I cover some modding options for LFO, I do some SPICE simulation and then […]

Simple Phaser – Experimenting with All-Pass Filter

This is getting a bit complex for a simple Phaser ?. After a long way coming back to the original schematic, it’s time to do some experimentation. In this article I cover what might be useful to try out modding, I do some SPICE simulation and then I breadboard another version of the phaser so […]

Clíodhna – Demo 1

The pedal was built ?, super screamer is ready to be tested. There are 192 useful options, but in this demo I managed to try out just 5. It is certain that there will be more to follow. The epic journey is documented here. Let’s get down to business ?:

Simple Phaser – Going Back Full Circle

It’s time to go back full circle … and actually go back nearly to Phase 45 clone. Well, turns out I was more off than I normally like to be on the original pedal ?. If this picked your interest, keep reading, or as usual just jump to the video and come back for details […]

Simple Phaser – Choosing Components

In the previous post I covered some details of the circuit similar to MXR Phase 45. A relatively simple circuit … but still with a lots of components?. Ultimately it has only a couple of circuit blocks/components that we really need to look into. This time around I’ll be looking into choosing JFETs and tweaking […]
