Pedalling About



Contrary to what seems like the higher truth (fuzzy logic reference). This post is not about bikes. I like bikes but I also like another kind of pedal. The effect pedal. An effect pedal has two inputs, power and audio-in. The output is audio-out.

This is the schematic I based my design off. I used large voltage biased capacitors and larger pots (greater range).

 The "Fuzz" pedal is a simple circuit for beginners. The schematic basically depicts a dual stage amplifier with capacitor in series to the input. The sound that goes through sounds as if it has been cut many times a second briefly and amplifies to saturate the capacitor. This happens many times a second when the guitar audio is a strong waveform. 
Simple Art for a simple pedal.
