my favorite amplifier: Hartke KM-50, for my Mellotron!
Completed builds: None - so far, despite having a huge amount of components. I've just started building 3 (yes, three) Reverb units that use a PT2399! 3? Yes - one for my Mellotron a 2 for musician friends of mine in Stafford, England. One is a self-trained guitarist and the other is a keyboard whizz!

Since I retired in early July last year, I've been digging around the 'net, trying to find schematics (circuit diagrams if you're a Brit!) for guitar effect units (Phaser, Wah-wah, Sustain, etc.) and I've come across some beauties! I apologise in advance if they've already been mentioned elsewhere on this forum - I have had a look, but you can only go so far back!

Firstly, I found https://worldradiohistory.com/ It's a site that collects English-speaking publications from around the world - Britain, USA, Canada, Australia, New Zealand plus a few others. From a purely British perspective, they have copies of magazines like Practical Electronics, Everyday Electronics, Elektor, Electronics Today International plus a few others that have Effect Units in them. A word of warning though - quite a few of the .pdf files are poor quality - so poor they are virtually unreadable, especially the text. It's the fault of the contributors, NOT the web-site. I'm trying to see if there are readable versions of the same magazines elsewhere on the 'net.

I used to buy Electronics & Music Maker in the mid 1980's, but it isn't on the above site, surprisingly. However, SOME issues have been converted to web-pages at http://www.muzines.co.uk/mags/emm. It's a magazine dedicated to musicians with an interest in Electronics. They also did interviews with Electronic Musicians, such as the members of Tangerine Dream. 'Muzines' may do other magazines, but I haven't fully investigated its site.

I found http://www.effectsdatabase.com/schematics purely by accident! It has schematics & details of a huge range of commercially-made effects units.

Hope this helps.
