PCB - LED Driver, for Pedals and Synths
This small PCB is a simple way to add an indicator light that pulses to the rate of LFOs and clocks used in pedals, synthesizers, and other equipment. Simply connect the positive supply voltage to V+, ground to GND, and the output of a positive signal (0 to V+) such as an LFO or clock to the IN pad. The trimmer can adjust how the LED reacts to the signal. Fully clockwise it will simply pulse on and off when paired with a strong signal. If the signal is a sine, triangle, or any other non-pulse type signal, adjusting the trimmer counter clockwise can dial in settings that follow the shape of the waveform, brightening and dimming with the changing voltage. For certain dual op-amp LFOs in effect pedals, the signal may not go low enough to turn the LED fully off.

Op-Amp - NJM4558L, Dual high-gain, 8-Pin SIP
NJM4558L dual op amp from JRC in a SIP8 package. The NJM4558L is the same as the DIP NJM4558 (JRC4558) otherwise. The SIP version is a great replacement for dual op amps in vintage circuits as well as a space saving package for some PCB layouts. The NJM4558L is a dual high-gain operational amplifier with internal compensation circuit and constructed on a single silicon chip. It offers excellent characteristics by combining the parameters adjusted for a monolithic chip. The channel separation characteristic is suitable for measuring instruments. Features:
See P-Q4558 for the DIP version of this chip
- Operating Voltage ( ±4V~±18V )

PCB - Vintage Style Circuit Board, Eyelet-Rite Fuzz, Phenolic Board
Eyelet-Rite fuzz circuit board made with a phenolic substrate for an even closer match to the vintage production boards. Phenolic boards are found in many vintage electronics before the use of fiberglass became common. This board is a recreation of the circuit board found in the germanium Mosrite Fuzzrite pedals. The board is styled after the point to point version that used eyelets. When drawing the layout, original boards were closely referenced to ensure a proper match and fit. This board is intended for use with S-HEYE-A eyelets and is directly mounted to a Carling P-H550 footswitch (both sold separately). The original build also used a unique C350K pot and the R-VOMSL-350KRA is the perfect substitute. The build style is very straightforward with point to point connections. For a detailed drawing of the parts and connections originally used on this board, please see the layout drawing linked below.

Op-Amp - LF347, Quad, Wide Bandwidth, 14-Pin DIP
LF347 quad op amp in a 14-pin DIP package. The LF347 is a low cost, high speed quad JFET input operational amplifier with an internally trimmed input offset voltage ( BI-FET II™ technology). The device requires a low supply current and yet maintains a large gain bandwidth product and a fast slew rate. In addition, well matched high voltage JFET input devices provide very low input bias and offset currents. The LF347 is pin compatible with the standard LM348. This feature allows designers to immediately upgrade the overall performance of existing LF348 and LM324 designs. The LF347 may be used in applications such as high speed integrators, fast D/A converters, sample-and-hold circuits and many other circuits requiring low input offset voltage, low input bias current, high input impedance, high slew rate and wide bandwidth.
Potentiometer - Alpha, Linear, 9mm, Vertical, Center Notch
Linear taper, vertical mount, Alpha pots with a 6.35mm shaft diameter and a center notch (detent). The center notch is useful for builds where the center position of the pot is commonly used such as panners or EQ controls. These 9mm pots are popular in DIY guitar pedals, synthesizers, and other projects. Mounting nut and washer included.
¼" Jack - Cliff, Sealed, Switched
Original Cliff sealed and switched blue jack. Fully threaded. Many types of professional music equipment nowadays use high power components, and need to be cooled by fans. Fans draw in dust and pollutants which can adversely affect the contacts of conventional jacks, with exposed contacts. This sealed jack avoids possibility of contamination of contacts by means of a sealing cover over the top and bottom of the jack.
