With the Aion Project name “Corona”, and nowadays I can not use another name for my Pedal other then COVID-19
Around 16 Years ago I was used to build Guitar Pedals but PCB was the big challenge… Now it was my first Aion Project. I have bought the PBC from Musikding.de. The components was bought in USA and Brazil.
The PCB is very organized and with high quality, that is what I expected.
Now I am excited to build the next…
Modifications or part substitutions
I have cutted 2 8-PIN IC Socket and in place of D2-D9. Now I have the possibility to change and test different Clipping to align with my Gear.
Standard clipping (Asym. 1x 1N914 + 2x 1N914): Sounds very cool, better then the Original 1981.
Real Zendrive clipping: I have used the Mosfet transistor, Schottky and Germanium diodes. For me, that is the best option overall. Sounds perfect…
The EQ Mod brings too much Bass to my Gear, I would try to reduce the CX1 and RX1 a bit…
