Delay pedals are widely used, but what are they exactly and how do they work? In this first post, we’ll go back in time to find the origin of delay pedals and the basic concepts behind them. In the next post we’ll give you some tips and tricks you can achieve with them.
In our last post we made an introduction to switches, but with no real application circuits. In this next issue, we will present some electronic circuits you can build with switches and explain how you can use them with your gear. Some of them are a simple RC filter with a frequency selector and a […]
Switches are present in almost any kind of electronic circuit, from effect pedals to cellphones. And even if many times we’re not aware of that they are essential, as they’re the main way we have to interact with electronic devices. Do you want to learn more about the different switches and how they’re used in electronic […]
When looking for a phase effect pedal, we know what we should expect the sound to be, but many times we’re not aware of what’s happening inside of this little box. Keep reading and you’ll learn how the phase effect is achieved from a dry signal, and what does “phase” mean. And even if you’re […]
Do you have a bunch of capacitors laying around and are unable to use them because you don’t know their value? Along with resistors, capacitors are the second most used part in almost any audio circuit, and being able to read their value is a must for any electronic hobbyist. Keep reading and learn how to […]
Do you have a lot of effect pedals but are not sure what the right order to chain them is? If that’s the case, don’t worry! Many of us guitar players suffer from GAS at some point, and end with a lot of effects in our pedalboard without knowing which is the best effect pedal […]
Do you know how to configure the MXR Phase 90‘s variable resistor to get the most of this pedal? How does the schematic work and why does it have a non-filtering filter? Keep reading and learn these and many other curiosities about the MXR Phase 90.
Like many people starting playing the guitar, we first used small sized combo amps with their own integrated distortion circuit, and as beginners we weren’t aware of the existence of effect pedals.
Did you get one of our diy effect pedal kits and need help to read resistor values? Then keep reading! This is one of the most important skills to anyone interested into electronics and effect pedal building, and in this post we’ll explain step by step how to read the value of the resistors we […]
Did you get one of our PuzzleSound’s kits to build your own effect pedal but are new to soldering? Don’t worry, in this post we’ll walk you through the whole process, from what are the tools you’ll need to tips on how to get better solder joints so you get the most from your handbuilt […]
