Kit Rae: Guitars and Gear edit / delete

Lots of guitar-related stuff, but particularly interesting for the detailed history of the Big Muff Pi fuzz pedals -- with discussion of all the different models, circuit differences, etc. -- and Tangerine Dream's film score for "The Keep". A substantial time sink.

Tone From Heaven edit / delete

"The purpose of this site is to convey the general feeling of the effects used by David Gilmour and to explain as best I can what they are used for and where." Includes interviews with Pete Cornish (pedalboards) and BK Butler (of Butler Tube Driver fame).

Dual Channel Blackface-style Preamp for Bass Guitar edit / delete

Clone (sort of) of the Alembic F-2B, a rackmount version of the classic Fender preamp and tone stack. The Alembic remains absurdly expensive so this might be an interesting project... although I'm really not convinced about the safety of his PSU arrangement! (You'd have to do something different for 240V anyway, e.g. two transformers back to back.)

Articles and Schematics edit / delete

A variety of interesting guitar pedal designs -- many based on FET-ified versions of guitar amps. The EQ pedal in particular looks interesting.

EA Tremolo edit / delete

Built it. It works nicely (and first time too, even given some component subsitutions -- in particular, a BC550 works for the LFO transistor).

Music PCB ยป Echo Base delay edit / delete

Pseudo-analog delay effect. It'd be interesting to build something similar around one of the BBD chips I've got.

Slightly inaccurate title: most of this is scans of electronics magazine articles for synthesisers, effects, and so on.

Matrixsynth: From Which the Gristleizer Came edit / delete

Guitar pedal from Practical Electronics in the 1970s with an LFO, VCF and VCA. The circuit's pretty simple.
