5 from 5 lui aussi : indispensable !

cétait mon deuxième essai avec Musikding et ça a a marché (presque) du 1er coup (cela tient encore du miracle !). Comme le Phaser 45, ne pouvant pas le comparer avec loriginal (ou un autre), tout ce que je peux dire cest quune fois branché sur la boucle deffets de mon Laney Lionheart, il est devenu immédiatement indispensable.
Merci Klaus !

4 from 5 Exciting first build

I have been wanting a tremolo pedal for a long time and came across Musikding and the Puls tremolo by coincidence. I chose the Puls as it seemed a relatively simple project.

I have no prior experience with pedal building, and my only other soldering experience is I have put in new pickups in an electric guitar once.

The kit came within 3-4 days as promised and I must admit I was impressed with the detailed marking of the items. All parts had labels telling me the values of resistors and caps which saved a novice like myself the time and bother finding value charts online and mapping each part.

Having watched a few youtube videos of people building pedals from kits, it was relatively easy to assemble and solder the parts to the PCB. The wiring of pots and jacks were also simple though the wire layout once in the enclosure is a bit messy.

The result when I had put everything together was a working tremolo pedal. Well - working but not quite as intended. The pedal had a clicking noise when engaged and it did not really give the desired effect.

I wrote the Musikding support and got response quickly. I explained my problem and after having sent a picture of my pcb front and back, Klaus was able to locate my mistake. Three of the caps used had positive/negative sides - something I had not been aware of having only used regular tone caps in guitars before. Klaus told me two of these caps needed to be rotated. Having corrected this, I now have a tremolo pedal which sounds just like the sound clips on the website.

The only reasons for not giving 5 stars is that I feel the kit should come with a better guide. I had to deduce from the online material and misc. youtube videos how to go about it. I think that would have saved me the trouble of my mistake.

That said I wholeheartedly recommend the kit and I have already ordered and received my next kit.

3 from 5 Part missing? Switch needs a sledge hammer.

I made many kits from 5 to 30 watt valve amps (one super example from madamp), to pedals like this.

All seem to work good from the word GO.

This has an electrolytic cap missing which seems to have been replaced with a normal type, but no mention of this on the web page. I will dig one out of my spares box and finish this one. Will replace the foot switch with a good one as my weight mass is not sufficient to press the one in the kit.

5 from 5 Pépite

Super son, la version que jai reçu comporte un 3e potard. Néamoins nécessite quelques petites notion délectronique pour ne pas se planter dordre des condensateurs. je recommande

3 from 5 Bien...

Hearbeat (bruit de loscillation)un peu bruyant dans ma boucle deffet et silencieux en frontal de lampli, problème dimpédance peut-être...
Assemblage nickel, tout est parfaitement ajusté& et expliqué.
Les potentiomètres sont par contre très peu progressif, entre 0 et 6 peu de changement et ensuite plus difficile de régler précisément. Aprés une fois réglé on y touche plus trop.
Jaurais aimé aussi un réglage plus soft réglé à lamplitude minimum.

Un très bon kit qui mériterait quelques ajustements pour être parfait (à mon gout).

5 from 5 They looked up to see where the sound came from! :-)

Great pedal. I used it a few times in a setting where it might come in handy.
When I kicked it in it sounded so right in place with what we where doing, they all looked up to see where it came from. This one will stay on my board!
Great sounding tremolo!

3 from 5 CAME WITHOUT KNOBS

At the moment I am only putting the pieces, 50% of the work done. The materials and the order in which they come is phenomenal. but Im missing the knobs !!!





--- Answer by Klaus from Musikding.de ---

Dear Carlos,

the kit does not contain the knobs, you can select the one you like yourself!



Best regards

Klaus

5 from 5 Tremolo also with acoustic bass

Bien reçu, avec du retard, mais un petit cadeau inattendu!
cest mon 2eme montage, le 1er, Zenith Pro ne fonctionne pas, cest moi qui ai voulu aller trop vite !
Prendre son temps, vérifier ses soudures, sil y a continuité dans le circuit, ne pas trop bruler le pcb avec le fer à souder, et jai fini par y arriver!
The Pulse laisse un feed back lorsque le mini switch est en position haute, problème de soudure ?
Sinon, bon tremolo, sur une Gretsch, ça surfe, et sur la Furch acoustique, sans pousser dans les excès, cela donne une bonne vibration.
Question déco, jai fait un transfert au médium de cosmonaute jouant de la guitare, gravé le boitier, cest un peu trash comme travail, mais cest la première, et ça sonne! Jy retourne, pour ajouter dautres effets à ma panoplie !

4 from 5 Good entry level tremolo

The low part count, comfortable component spacing on the board and PCB-mounted pots make for an easy build for beginners looking to build their first tremolo. Mine fired up at first try.
The effect quality is quite good, although the volume pot needs to be maxxed out for unity volume, and the rate rage could extend a tiny bit lower to my taste (but thats subjective); just remember it wont do everything tremolowise.
Its veeeeeeery similar to a certain, now discontinued, EHX tremolo with a name two letters longer, so check youtube reviews of this one, and see if it works for you. If so, treat yourself, but if youre looking for a smooth, classic sinewave trem for Nancy Sinatra or Enio Morricone sounds, youll have to look elsewhere.
