Tube-Town Effects

Here is a serie of tube effect pedals by the German Tube-Town which were requested a while back.
There aren't videos available but you can find all infos, schematics and pcbs on their website here.
(The Pepper Shredder has been discontinued but it's supposed to be a tube distortion based on the Twin Valvecaster)

  1. Well cool, I have a few 9 pin sockets and a few 12V regulators.. I've been wanting to try a dual tube pedal.. looks very interesting

  3. Many many thanks Alex !
    Are there any mounting precautions with the temperature of 7812 regulator ?

  4. Machines generally tend to pressure you into unnatural patterns which might be prone to accidents, whereas loose weights promote natural motions. http://musclegainfast.com/ef13-muscle-supplement/

  5. As always great layouts Alex!! Banana booster is verified. little noise but likely due to non regulated power and long exposed wires on the bench. Sounds good with tons of volume. Will try to get into the other ones soon!
    Thanks again!! Have a great day.

    1. Thanks mate!
      I think a good power supply is very important here.

    2. Absolutely agree. I also put the pepper shredder together and it works. Not real fond of the drive tones (slightly fizzy) and the output is just above unity. All controls work. May go for the vanilla.
      Also if building def use a heat sink on the 7812...pepper shredder 7812 gets nice and toasty.
      Thanks again to everyone here!

    1. What are miss Emma and Y La Nina?
      The only Emma I've found works at 250V.
      Would not build it on vero.

    2. That's what I wondering about was the amp. I thought it sounded pretty good, but probably something best done on some turrets

  7. What is that CLR on left of the top row for the Banan booster? Is it the 4k7 led resistor?

    1. CLR stands for current limiting resistor. this is the resistor for your status LED, it should be whatever value you like, 4.7k is fine.
