Smokey amp vI
Last update: Mon Oct 15 22:56:20 2018
20101026: version 1 is ready. Well well it's amplifying yes. It's over noisy also. And very sensitive to magnetic field and capacitance. That's awful, but maybe that plugged on a guitar it will be better? Tomorrow we'll see.
20101101: after a weekend of tests, good and bad. Good is the sound, nicely distorted, a bit heavy and a suprising energy for such a small circuit. Bad is that I can hear the radio (faint but present) and that the guitar cable is just a big radio antenna making the amp super sensitive to magnetic waves. Depends on where it is, sound change from great and clear to too noisy to hear yourself playing. How to fix this ? A small cap between the input pins ? Did it, not really better. Using ferrite beads ? Will try that tonight.
...continued on Smokey amp vII
The minimal schema, no gain (pin 1-8 are strapped), no volume knob. Schema found on the net.
Version 1, simple as can be. No volume knob, no gain control, no polarity reverse protection, ... the root.
In a tic-tac box: the speaker is not the one on the top photo for the most observatives of you. Working fine, just added a switch on/off on the side.
