welcome to Apocalypse Audio, your haven for DIY guitar effects in the end times. so, start prayin to the fuzz gods, savin up those parts, and remember, when the big one goes off- keep your transistors shielded from those pesky electromagnetic pulses!
WAMPLER - CRANKED AC
recently while browsing a certain clone kit site, i stumbled across the schematic for brian wampler's cranked ac design. having been on a serious ac kick a while back, i was never able to find the schematic, so this was kind of a cool find. the cranked ac at first looks like your run of the mill jfet type distortion box until you notice that wierd parallel fet configuration. ecaxtly what this is supposed to do to the sound i don't know, but it is a rather interesting little tweak. i'm sure that this could be adapted to just about any transistor type, and wonder if it has any of the same kind of properties as stacking ic's.
i redrew the schematic and made up an eagle verified pcb layout which should work ok. if anyone gets it built please let me know . you can keep up with all of the latest on this subject HERE.
