Shoot the Moon Tremolo - Eagle Files

Attached are my Eagle CAD files for the Shoot the Moon Tremolo (STM) project. You can use these files to modify the circuit and/or board layout, or you can order circuit boards from places like www.oshpark.com.

These are free to use for any purpose, whether for hobby or profit. Enjoy! But don't be emailing me asking how to use Eagle. I don't have time for that shit. :)

If you sell PCBs or pedals, take a close look at your twitter followers...

If you're running a small business that sells pedals or even just PCBs for hobbyists pedal builders, double-check your twitter followers to make sure you don't have any patent law firms or patent intelligence companies following you.

If you have even a minimal presence on twitter, I highly recommend you do some occasional analytics on your list of followers (and also on who you are following). Here are a couple great, free tools to help out:

Great places to buy effects PCBs

There are some great new effects PCB businesses springing up lately, so I thought I'd take the time to list them. These are all solid, reputable dealers.

New Effects Site for Eagle CAD Users: PedalGeeksUnited.com

The title pretty much says it all. There is a new hot-shit DIY effects site that is focused on sharing files and information for using Eagle CAD software to create schematics and PCB layouts. Check it out:

http://pedalgeeksunited.com/

Several of the projects here are also available on Pedal Geeks as Eagle files.

Effects Project: Neptune Delay

My first real delay project!

Here is my two cents thrown in to the bucket of PT2399-based delay circuits. It features aggressive low-pass filtering on the delay line to virtually eliminate the nasty artifacts that often plague PT2399 delays; and it also sports a momentary footswitch that modulates the delay time, allowing for some cool pitch-bending sounds and really funky detune effects.

Click here for the full low-down on the Neptune Delay, including a short demo video.

Effects Project: Optical Tremolo

Here's a really fun take on the much-loved Tremulus Lune optical tremolo. I paired down the complexity of the LFO to rein in the pedal to a manageable four total pots. I also added more filtering and isolation to keep it as quiet as possible (no LFO ticking).

Check out the Shoot The Moon optical trem project.

New Content Coming Soon!

It's been ages since the last update to this site, but I have some new projects to post shortly. Upcoming effects projects will include: tremolo, reverb/slapback delay, phaser-vibe, and some nice dirt. :)

Stay tuned! (haha, get it? Tuned!)

Effects Project: Whisker Biscuit

I made up a new PCB layout for the Whisker Biscuit, a Muff-like circuit developed by runoffgroove.com. If you love the sound of a transistor Big Muff, you simply must build this one. It nails the classic Muff tone, but with far few components.

Effects Project: Babylon Fuzz MkIII

A third revisit to an old favorite of mine. Lots of fuzz, lots of output volume, and now optional clipping diodes for even more compression and sustain. PCB layout and also a vero layout.

Check out the Babylon Fuzz MkIII project.

I may have professional PCBs made for this circuit if there is enough interest. Shoot me an email at effdub@gmail.com if this is something you'd like to see done up as a proper PCB.

Effects Project: Mockman 2.0

I worked up a brand-new PCB layout for the Mockman 2.0 by runoffgroove.com. This circuit was inspired by the dirty tones of the old Scholz Rockman headphone amp from the 1980s.
