Baja ENG Overdrive

Bajaman's overdrive circuit based on the Engl 530 preamp with switchable tone stack.
Original thread and schematic available on the FSB forum here.
The layout should fit in a 1590B box.

  5. Building this one at the moment. I'll finish tonight I just need to get some 1u mkts from work. Looks good so far. The image of the transistor for the bc547 isn't the right way round for the bc547bs i have. It shows the emitter and bass legs are on the opposite side. Not that it should matter if you are checking your pinouts! Its the correct way round for rhe 2n5088/89s and bc550s i have if you are subbing the 547. I'll finish tonight and let you know how it goes!

  6. I haven't got mine to work yet I just get oscillation.I've gone over it with a magnifying glass and can't find any obvious problems. I go over it with an audio probe tomorrow and see if i can figure it out.

  8. Pretty much the same as I got with mine. Trashed it in the end... I'd been over everything so many times that I reached a point where I stopped doubting myself and just 'effed it.

  9. The 9V connection should go to pin 7 of TL061. (Same as MDR layout)
