I am finally getting around to building the BYOC Tremolo kit from 2006. I went to the instruction archive, but it seems like the V1 (before 5/1/06) is actually version 3, and V2 - With Bezel is missing. I think I need v2 as the board for 2.1 looks different.

If anyone has a link to the v2 instructions, could you please send it my way?

Could you please post a photo of your PCB so that we know exactly what we're looking for?

Yeah, that looks like it must be v.2.0. The first one I built was v.2.2, which is the same as v.2.1 but with a couple of trace errors on the PCB fixed. Your PCB is VERY similar to my v.2.2 with the only apparent differences being that (1) your LED is bezel-mounted where mine mounts directly to the PCB, and (2) a couple of your cap values are 0.62uf where mine are 0.68uf.

Because these three versions are so similar, you should definitely be able to use the v.2.1 instructions to build your kit. Just keep these differences in mind:

  • Ignore the PCB repair sequence on pp. 2 - 5.
  • You'll need to mount the LED in the bezel provided with the kit and then wire it to the "LED-" and "LED+" eyelets at the bottom of the PCB. The long LED leg is the +.

Thanks for the confirmation. I'll give it a look over today and make sure everything looks good before I start. Can't believe I've had this kit for so long and I'm only building it now!

Yeah, you may have set a forum record! But you can tell everybody that it's a "NOS pedal!!" Probably get $300 for it on Reverb.com! ;) :lol:

One last question:
Do you think that the change from 0.62uf to 0.68uf in the newer build will make a difference?

I wouldn't expect that small of a cap change (~10%) to make much difference, but then again, Keith doesn't make changes in component values for no reason. You can always try socketing those two positions and try both values to see which you prefer.

That was my thought as well! I'll try them and see. Thanks again for your help!

I really can't remember back that far, but I would have to assume that .62 is a typo. .62 is not a value that I've ever seen. Those should all be .68uF....I think.

Hi Keith!

I was just going to report that my kit has 3 x .68uF (684k) caps! So I guess it was a typo :-)
