Mad Professor 1

Postby rmroza » 09 May 2017, 04:12

Man, I was searching and looked up Top pedals to get VH tone (and late 70's/early 80's) and this pedal came up at the top of the list.

I looked at the videos and it sounded amazing. I ordered one to try out andsure enough, it really does mimic the tone in a clean amp!

I took a quick look inside and discovered a myriad of things from the SpinSemiconductor FV-1 reverb chip, NE5534 Op Amps, 2N7000 MOSFETs, and BC550 BJTs!

Does anyone else have any information on this pedal? If so, please post. If not and in any event, I may take this apart and trace it completely to understand the design.

The reverb is nice, but I'd like is seggregated from the distortion. Likewise, I'd like some tone controls added to adjust the TMB. I wonder if say the Mighty Red Distortion pedal is the same distortion, but without reverb or a variation??!?

Stay Tuned!

Yes, please take it apart and trace.

I have not found any schematics on the web for this pedal.
