Please post your schematic from your tracing.

I'm a Chinese, this may take a little time to sort out my documents.I want to write something here recently about this pedal .as you know,maybe I need to translate my idea to english

we always wait you
and i think for almost member here, the language of your idea is just scheme only, explanation later :secret:

Indeed. It seems that there are a bit of similarities, in particular, with it and the Pinnacle LE. The latter was traced out in what I think was a Pinnacle II thread. So I went and dropped in the capacitor values for the LE, and then looked at the Sovereign. I tried to label what I thought might be the cap equivalents.

I figured that until someone has one to trace, that the next step would be figuring out the resistor values, and then they could be cross-referenced to the Pinnacle as well.

This seemed like as good a place as any to start. I hope it helps.

I have already traced this pedal

In the right tab below the text box it says "Upload attachment" - use that.

Referring to the schematic posted last year, does anyone know the purpose of the MOSFET in the power section of the schematic? I have never seen that before.

Hi
this is reverse polarity protection

I pretty much use that Mosfet polarity protection in most of my builds. You can read how it all works on R.G's Geofex site.
It's fairly straight forward, if you want to start it , press start. You can work out the rest of the controls for yourself !

No silicon heaven ? preposterous ! Where would all the calculators go ?

Recently picked up a broken Sovereign for free from someone.
However, some parts were taken out of the circuit and the pedal dissembled.
I've managed to replace the missing parts and attach the input, output, and power supply correctly..well...hopefully.
Can anyone give advice on how the original schematic wires up the foot switch and input and outputs?
