This Booster delivers the sound of the old Ampeg Tube-Amps. It gives you a very naturla tube sound and a nice Overdriver in higher gain settings.

Although intended for Bass, it also sounds great with guitar, too! This project uses 9 transistors and 5 pots, and is definetely no beginner project!

The dimensions of the pcb are 49x49mm.

This project is by GuitarPCB.com, in cooperation with Musikding. For any technical problem relating to building this project, please contact Barry at GuitarPCB.com forum.

5 from 5 pcb

un pò piccolo come pcb, avrei preferito un pò più grande come dimensioni

3 from 5 mounting??

As I forgot to order one of the transistors, I have not yet tested the effect, but I have some experience from the making of. But I am expecting a booming sound, when all the crisses and crosses from the assembly will be forgotten.
This thing is SMALL! Too small for my taste really - and I see no real good reason, why. Soldering is tight and you struggle. It suffers so much from its tinyness - putting in transistors is a nuisance, for example. Even bigger nuisance is mounting the pots. And if only their headers would be in standard 2,54 pitch from each other (I made a whole mounting brace with the stripboard) in my head and also bought such pots, but then, baam, the spaces are out of measure - so I made pots on wires).
But the biggest trade-off of this smallish design is the lack of mounting holes - how on earth are you supposed to put this in your chassis - stick it in with a chewing gum? I was seriosly considering the option of using double sided tape to attach it, but then I decided for another option and abused the generous amount of GND pads on the PCB for soldering on solder lugs (a hack that I used on my own (stupidly designed) pcbs without mounting holes and on few stripboard projects)- I will use them with plastic distance bolts for attachment to the chassis.
When I get the Q, which will enable me to test the effect (hope it works), I will write some more.
