CWS006

Tremolo pedal based on EA tremolo design. This pedal was built fairly true to the circuit, with minor adjustments to the controls to give them a more preferable range. The sound of this pedal, compared to that of the boost

CWS004

Boost pedal built with military grade metal film resistors and Sprague orange drop capacitors. This pedal was built for personal use and combines all of the elements of CWS001, CWS002, and CWS003 that I preferred for use in my own

CWS003

Boost Pedal This is a dual JFET boost, using the mu-amp/minibooster circuit. The controls for this pedal are—a 2-way gain switch, volume knob, tone knob, and a 3-way bass switch. The two fixed biases, selectable with the gain switch, were

CWS002

This pedal is another mu-amp JFET transistor boost using two 5751 transistors in a stacked configuration. The controls for this pedal are—a volume knob controlling overall output level, a bias knob which controls the gain level of the transistors, and

This is where it all began. When looking for a first project to build I stumbled on Jack Orman’s version of the minibooster circuit, which I used as a building block for the first pedal. This circuit, also called a
