  1. Miro! Waaa you are awesome. I'm just waiting for verification ;)
    Keep up the good work my friend.

  2. cool, i have one of these. fun little amp. just had a thought....

    I wonder how easy it would be to replace the pre section with a 12ax7 tube stage.

    something like the real tube 903?

    1. Not hard at all. But this layout won't help much since the preamp is the bigger half of it. You'd want to draw a layout just for TDA7052 and place that after the preamp of your choosing.

  3. this has just shot to the top of my ever increasing build list, thanks Miro :)

  4. Have one of those, and I hate it with passion.
    The clean sound with my strat was kind of usable, but the od is unsmokeable. With humbuckers I just couldn´t get a clean sound due to lack of headroom.
    Any of the ROG tonemender versions in front of this kind of little amps with just a tone control, make wonders.

  5. Sorry for noob question but what is difference between blue break points and white break point?

  6. Blue = double link.
    White = line break

  7. I had this little monster. The speaker and plastic enclosure were total crap, but it sounded interesting with a 10" speaker. I even tried to connect the speaker output to a tube power amp, with quite good results, a warm but fuzzy tone. Very unique, maybe like acacia honey...

  8. I have one of these which I rehoused with a larger speaker. I wanted to share a couple of things I did that I thought were improvements.

    1. The 2 clipping diodes shunt to ground (like a Rat), but I moved them to the feedback loop (like a Tubescreamer). On mine, I soldered the diodes in parallel (back to back) between lug 1 & 2 of the gain knob, but if you're building on vero you could add a couple columns and put them from pin 1&2 of IC1. This is a matter of taste, and I often actually prefer the Rat style for OD circuits, but in this circuit I thought the TS style was smoother and more usable. (I'm using a Tele, btw)

    2. The tone knob controls both bass and treble response (somewhat similar to how the Big Muff tone control works). I know there are better and more technically correct ways to do this, but I simply used 2 100kA knobs (bass knob from Tone 1 & Tone 2, and Treble knob from Tone 3 & Tone 2). Seems to work ok to open up the tonal options quite a bit.

  9. I'm new to all of this, is there any place where I can learn where to conect all of the "Gain, Volume, Tone etc."?

    1. There's a post on here about offboard wiring that explains how to wire up the pots. http://tagboardeffects.blogspot.com/2012/02/offboard-wiring.html

    3. Hi guy’s, in this board, where do i connect the in jack tip and sleeve and the speaker + and - to the offboard wiring diagram?

      Thanks

  10. Is there a suitable replacement for the TDA7052 ic?

  11. I just built it but there is no sound, what would be the wiring correct?

  12. I see the schematic and see the resistor 470k for 47k as in the schematic

  13. I recommend using a 16 Ohms speaker or cabinet, as the datasheet for the TDA7052 shows curves of Output Power VS Supply Voltage with different loads, and the 8 Ohms curve (which is the impedance of the speaker in the original amp) stops right at 9v, which tells me it's where it fails and blows up.
    Better safe than sorry.
