Room Cleaning

by drk last updated on 2016/04/20 ( electronics / guitar )


So today I ended up cleaning my room for a bit, and as usual, there's always some random stuff in the corner of the room.
Here's some electronic stuff I've worked on a few years back.

Guitar Effect Pedals

Guitar Effect Pedals

Here's some guitar effect pedals, these were the kind of projects I did the most for a few reasons.

  • Price: all the parts are pretty cheap (the metal casing being the most expensive) so its a nice way to get started.
  • Simplicity: The circuits are pretty simple (especially if its a boost/distortion circuit) so its easier to learn how it all works.
  • Safety: Low voltage/current, so pretty safe.

Guitar Amplifiers

Guitar Amplifiers

Most of my electronic endeavours were in some way related to audio (due to playing the guitar). Here's some guitar amplifiers.

The bottom left is a transistor amplifier and the others are valve amplifiers. The top one is kind of half-way finished (stopped working on it for whatever reason).

Although it might look strange to use valve/tube for the amplification, its actually pretty common within guitar amplifiers, mostly due to the nice sound they produce.

Guitar

Guitar

This was my very first electric guitar that I had (I played with an acoustic guitar before), it was given to me by my father on my 18 birthday. It kind of ended up being the 'test subject' for my guitar electronics experimentation, to understand how a guitar works.

The electronics part is all new, with some customizations like another 5-way switch with some filters (next to the pickups switch). Also ended up changing from a floating bridge to a fixed one (mainly due to the guitar not keeping the tuning for too long, fixed bridge is more stable).

Incomplete Circuits

Incomplete Circuits

Obviously not everything ended up working in a nice case. Here's some incomplete circuits that for whatever reason were never finished. Mostly from guitar effect pedals circuits.
