Ok, it is another "old dog", but here is a picture of the track side:

Here's a Layout for the SparkleDrive.
Another TS circuit with a clean blend.
Thank you to Torchy for helping me sort through the schem!!

On this layout, shouldn't R14 (3,01k) be in place of R10 (1K), and leave empty place where R14 was? Also 100k to ground at the end of the curcuit is mising? According to Torchy schematic.

Anyone know what happened to these links? Was interested in building one of these.

I will start working on a perf layout soon- I'm tired of the switches going bad (I've had more than one Sparkledrive, and every one of the switches got squirrelly) and I'm looking to build a retrofit board to go in the stock box.

This is really funny; did see this topic and did download the file but then I did realize it was from my own homepage....

additionally, can anyone explain the differences between the SPRINKledrive and the SPARKLEdrive that MarkM has posted>>>? :scratch:

AFAIK, the Sprinkle was based on the concept of the Sparkledrive, but is not an actual clone, more "inspired by." That VLSD schematic purports to be the actual schematic, reversed from an actual pedal.

Can anyone pm me or email me Torchy's veroboard for this one?


Same here, please. These photo links seem to disappear pretty quickly. Thanks.

You should do a search over at diystomboxes. IIRC there was an issue with getting the mixing function to work right with a single-ganged pot. Also, the Sprinkle was done before the correct SparkleDrive schem was posted.

Torchy had a SD vero layout before he pulled them all. Ask around and see if anyone saved it.

Here you are. I'm not sure it's verified, you'd better check it
