Welcome - Please Read

Welcome. I wanted to provide stripboard layouts I've made to help people new to electronics and even the more experienced get into different aspects of electronics.

I verify the layouts before I post them.

Amptweaker Defizzerator Stripboard Layout

I went to the shop yesterday hoping to buy 2 Amptweaker Defizzerators for a recording session but of course; they only had 1, so I bought 1 and reverse engineered it. it's a passive circuit so you get a bit of loss and I may work on a buffered version at a later date but for now;

May Queen Overdrive (originally by Runoffgroove.com) Stripboard layout

I used to make this pedal a lot and sell them on eBay so I thought I'd revisit it as it seems that I sold the one I made for myself too.
Anyway this is a pretty cool effect, it has a lot more drive than a standard treble booster and it layers up really nicely.
I have been quite busy with recording music - my bands second album (on a real CD not a CDR) and other bands which is one of the reasons that things have slowed down on here - I've also been working on a lot of high voltage industrial designs so I couldn't really share them!

Where Have You Been?!

as you may have noticed, I've not posted any new projects on here for ages; well there's a few reasons for this.
1. A label released my bands album last August (see previous post shilling it) and leading upto that I was spending a lot of time recording it and mixing it etc. and after that, promoting it.

2. Google screwed up my domain renewal - I had it set to automatically renew as with previous years, my card details were up to date however they arbitrarily decided to not automatically renew it and not warn me so one day I noticed my stats had dropped to zero and they just won't let me renew my domain now - I've spent hours and hours going through their circular "help" menus. I've tried to contact anyone but obviously there's no one to contact and this completely sapped my enthusiasm for this site for a good few months.

but most importantly;

3. I can't think of anything to make, I like to keep these projects moderately easy for the sake of people new to the hobby or people who just want to do weekend projects. normally I would just do some kind of audio related thing when I can't think of anything but my friends at tagboardfx have usually beaten me to anything guitar related - sometimes I will do something they've done if I think I can make it more compact or I have the original pedal and I can check unknown resistor/cap values (like the Nathan East pedal for example)

Anyway if you can give me some suggestions or ideas of stuff to make/design, I can start doing some new stuff. not limited to audio stuff, test gear, LED stuff etc. welcome.

TL:DR - Google is shit & suggest stuff to make
