No description available.


This circuit is suited for applications that employs distortion of the audio signal. Instruments such as electric guitars, and keyboards are just some examples of musical instruments that can take advantage of this circuit. The circuit modifies the electrical signal generated by the instruments and produces an effect that can be observed when it is connected to an audio amplifier.

The circuit is relatively easy to construct and it uses components such as resistors, capacitors, diodes, and operational amplifiers. This circuit takes advantage of the MCP6001 operational amplifier from Microchip. The MCP6001 is a single general purpose op amp offering rail-to-rail input and output over the 1.8 to 6V operating range. This amplifier has a typical GBWP of 1MHz with typical quiescent current of 100µA.
