We took a 1. */, Copyright ©2020. MXR released a simple hard clipping device called the “Distortion Plus” in the late seventies. In the image above, the output signal voltage level is shown sweeping the volume potentiometer. It can also supply a permanent boost in a long effects chain or cables where the signal drop is a problem. 0000006521 00000 n The MXR Micro Amp circuit can be divided into two blocks: Power Supply Stage and the Op-Amp Amplifier. var addy_text853a9c9cbfb1a5b3b3cfec3d37d944d9 = 'info' + '@' + 'electrosmash' + '.' + 'com';document.getElementById('cloak853a9c9cbfb1a5b3b3cfec3d37d944d9').innerHTML += ''+addy_text853a9c9cbfb1a5b3b3cfec3d37d944d9+'<\/a>'; The M-133 MicroAmp is a clean boost/volume pedal, part of the first. Add an SPST switch around C3 to add more bass by adding a .33uf cap in parallel with C3. DSTORTO+ / 250 OVRDRV / APHO DSTORTO 1 Aphelion Distortion MXR Distortion+ / DOD 250 Overdrive Overview Distortion+ PCB project page Controls & Usage The Distortion+ controls are pretty basic: • Gain controls the amount of gain from the op amp that is fed into the diode clipping stage.

Rig Rundown Best-Ofs: Blues-Rock Pedalboards, 4. In the above graph, the gain potentiometer is set in the mid position (250KΩ). trailer Change D1 and D2 to 1n34a and 1n4001 diodes (in series) in The original stompbox did not have power-on LED or A/C connector. Change C5 to a .0022uf and wired in series with a 1m audio taper pot to act as a tone control. xref 0000002005 00000 n

The first in a line from the MXR Custom Badass design team, the MXR Custom Badass ’78 Distortion is a factory-modded pedal that roars with huge amp stack tones and old school tube amp-like distortion.

114 0 obj <>stream 0000033026 00000 n The Super Badass Distortion provides a full and highly responsive spectrum distortion with a 3-band EQ to fine-tune your sound.

0000032171 00000 n The Power Supply Stage provides energy and bias voltage for the circuit: The signal booster is a non-inverting op-amp stage which provides high input impedance, voltage gain, and signal filtering: The op-amp is configured in a classic non-inverting topology, the resistors R4,  R5, and R6 set the voltage gain as it will be seen in the Voltage Gain Section.

The (+) input is biased to 4.5V through the R. The 500K potentiometer R5 is Reverse Log. Hooked: Stephen Brodsky on Led Zeppelin's "Communication Breakdown", 2. Guitarists everywhere mistakenly thought that this little device was the secret to Randy’s tone.

1.2 Op-Amp Amplifier Stage.2. The tone response in a boost/volume pedal aims to be transparent, not modifying the contents of treble or bass. My sincere appreciation to S. Hale and M. Barnes for your help with this analysis.

Several capacitors C1, C2, C3, and C5 will filter the guitar signal, always keeping a flat response as it is explained in the Frequency Response Section. The MXR Micro Amp circuit can be divided into two blocks: Power Supply Stage and the Op-Amp Amplifier. %PDF-1.7 %����

This simple and reliable design that uses only 1 op-amp and 1 potentiometer will boost the guitar signal up to 26dB, giving a clean flat frequency response. 0000006267 00000 n You can still use a Linear potentiometer but the action of it will not be evenly spread across the whole pot range. 0000005348 00000 n This simple and reliable design that uses only 1 op-amp and 1 potentiometer will boost the guitar signal up to 26dB, giving a clean flat frequency response. 0000022947 00000 n Let’s take a look at it a bit closer; there are a great many mods that can be done to turn it into a tone monster. 0000174065 00000 n Terms Of Use.

It is clear that Micro-Amp is essentially a flat booster.

As a rule of thumb the input impedance of a pedal should be 1MΩ minimum. Design, CMS, Hosting & Web Development :: ePublishing.

Your Pedalboards 2020: Part Deux, 1. MXR MicroAmp Schematic. While not all of the mods are necessary, I encourage you to experiment to find what you like and don’t like and tailor your own pedal to your needs. This will give a ''more/less compression'' type of function, or a ''smooth/open'' tonality. Placing it before the amp the signal boost will drive the preamp harder and into more saturation.

Change R2 and C3 to a 1k/.22uf for the same high gain frequency response but more gain potential. 0000020942 00000 n Rig Rundown: Deep Sea Diver's Jessica Dobson, 1.
