Ok, in my GCSE Electronics course everyone has to do a project where we make an electrical product ourselves. Now, I've heard that Guitar FX pedals aren't all that hard to wire, so I want to make an effects pedal. The problem is though we have to design our own circuit. Do you think that if I study some circuit diagrams of other pedals I could come up with my own design of one of the classic effects?


Oh yeah and if so can you please link some circuit diagrams?

If you wanna make a cheap and quick fuzz pedal, get an old walkman, solder an input jack to the two wires connected to the tape-reading head thing and put an output jack where the headphone socket was. You are now the proud owner of a Sony Fuzzman!

You get to do GCSE electronics? No fair. I'm at AS and we still dont get that option.

bloody hell, i did electronics in yr8 for ppl in US thats age... errr.... 13 over half a decade ago... guess things changed quickly. I wouldn't be too dissapointed, you aren't missing anything useful... "this bit goes here... make sure you get the stripe on the side nearest the blue one...." christ, six components and we never even got told what they were. college physics is more useful for this stuff.

Dang, I always forgot the hyphen in Home-Wrecker!

We had technology class at my old school. You start with basic woodworking, then move into mechanics, electronics and computing.
And I had to move to Geneva
Technology would have been the most useful lesson. Here, we don't have that stuff, and physics teachers don't know wtf they're talking about. Shame.

i did GCSE electronics. if i played bass in year 9 i would have definately made an FX pedal. its an easy project to do, just proving it works to the teacher would be harder.

Yeah, knowing school they'd find some way of making it uninteresting and thoroughly useless.
