Lovepedal Babyface Tremolo

Postby shiflet » 31 Mar 2013, 02:15

People, how are you? Anyone know if there is any scheme of this pedal? I like very much that can be done in a small box, also for me, sounds great, if anyone knows where to get the schema (as it is not very new pedal), please if you can give me a hand.

Greetings!

not sure what the schem for that is, but the heartthrob can fit into a 1590a easy

Thanks for responding rocklander! Only I remain a doubt:

It takes place the booster switch or can be omitted? I was looking in the other diagrams and has the boost switch but have 4 transistors, and anything else that takes 3 :?

I am not sure what you mean about the booster. this is just a tremolo.. based on the schematic here:

I refer to this part:

http://freestompboxes.org/viewtopic.php?f=13&t=627&start=60

Here put the booster in the diagram with a valve, so let me know if you need to put the booster or omit anything more.

that link didn't take me to a particular post (just the thread), but the valve one is different..
I'm simply saying that the layout I used will fit in a 1509a.. mine doesn't have a boost and it works perfectly.

Perdona, no se porque razon no se enlazo bien. Mira, es este por el que te pregunte, me parece algo raro el que tenga solamente 3 transistores en vez de 4 (como el original).

Tu lo hiciste en placa pre perforada o algun pcb?

I don't speak spanish so used google translate, so sorry if I have the wrong idea but..

the one you've linked is the tube based one and it has an extra boost. it's not the standard heartthrob. I seriously doubt you'd fit one in a 1590a, but if you do post pictures cos that would be just awesome! :shock:

the one in my links above has no boost (and I don't think it needs it) and will fit easily into 1590a.
it's a PCB so will need to be etched.
|\/|ark also posted a vero layout but not sure it will fit into 1590a; he may be able to answer?
good luck either way :thumbsup

Sorry, it was time, was writing to another friend and I spend it :mrgreen:

What I was wondering if there is any difference between having three transistors and having four transistors, because if you've noticed, which carries only has 3 transistors boost :shock:

Will I can skip the boost and connect just like that?

And another thing, you did pre perforated plate or some pcb?

I think it would fit vertically in a 1590A with the components facing down if you had small enough input and output sockets, but I wouldn't want to do it. I'm a 1590A chicken, just don't find any pleasure in building anything other than a buffer in them! :mrgreen:

4 transistors and a boost switch says EA trem to me...

Boys! Complete tremolo, here are the pics!

The two things that were replaced by transistors BC548 and one 25K pot 20K

Now I raised two questions:

1-The pedal gets a lot huuuuuuummm noise or other distortion pedals over and that I have not put much as this little box, this is going seriously :roll:

2-When I hear pedal low volume, will by transistors? Or is there some way to "up" the volume?

nice work :)

not sure about the issues. I think hum will go once you put it in a box, but for raising volume, I can't help. I just made the layout. hopefully someone who knows about stuff can answer that for you.

Hi

I was wondering if anyone is working on a schematic and or vero layout...
I'm very interested in the switchable waveform on this tremolo.
Maybe there are other designs where this switch can be added?

Any info very welcome!

IC: PIC12F683

Optocoupler labelling seems to be sanded off

I can send more pictures if you like ...
