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:

https://www.freestompboxes.org/viewtopic.ph ... 7&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!
