Open-Hardware DIY Guitar Pedal PCB Update

Postby makerie » 25 Apr 2016, 19:16

Hi Folks,

I'd previously posted on my Open-Hardware BIY (Boutique it Yourself) Guitar pedal PCB project http://www.maker.ie/guitar-pedal.html. I had asked for testers and based on their feedback we have updated our original board design and have created a larger one. The idea of this project is to make DIY'ing your own pedals easier, quicker and most importantly, more reliable by having no more off-board wiring.

Here is the original board http://i.imgur.com/4mOrsqm.png

Here is the new version of that board http://imgur.com/HIKlfwH
And our new larger board http://imgur.com/g5tjaaG

Features of the new Larger Board:
- Huge Build Area
- 6 Pots
- 2x Stomp switches
- 2x DPDT switches
- Dedicated Power and Ground Rails
- 1/2Vcc Power Rail
- Space for Voltage Regulator
- Space for input & output anti-pop resistors
- No off-board wiring!


I would love your feedback. We are also looking for help creating layouts if that interests anyone.
Thanks!

I can imagine it would be nice to have a couple of spots to mount an opamp (DIL-8), or at least have some of the strips provide a way to easily cut the strip, like you would drill out stripboard.

Looks pretty cool, is there room for a battery in the enclosure?

Not at the moment, but it's really only the first draft. Gonna make some changes and thats one I've been thinking about! Cheers for the feedback Johno.

Again this is something I've been thinking of. We have a breadboard coming out the shape of the 1590B where there is room for that, but maybe it would make a nice addition to this version! Cheers for the feedback :)
