  • Ss ssg 9v battery stomp box

    No I haven't built one yet! The idea popped into my head today and I thought to share.

    Guitar pedals are a microcosm of the audio world and a lot of them run on a 9v battery. This to me seems like a good starting point.
    Super efficient Guitar pedal that doesn't need a power supply, I'm in.
    Similar perhaps to Shawnee Baughman's science project but this time with a mini amp circuit as load instead of a light bulb, and SS SSG to charge the 9V, instead of the vanilla SG she used..?
    I would imagine that some serious thought to shielding would be in order if the 2 were to exist in the same box.

    Any thoughts People?

    shawnees motor did run down..... it just took longer than it was supposed to.

      Thank you for the reply Tom.
      If I'm getting this correct. The vanilla SG circuit is capable of running a primary load (the wheel) and a secondary load (light bulb from gen coil) from a 9v battery, longer than that same 9v battery would otherwise have been able to run the 2 loads?
      I appreciate that a small audio amplifier circuit is i guess another kind of load than a wheel and a light bulb , but can the same theory be applied? Or am I over simplifying this ?

        the output of the SG is pulsed DC you still need a primary and a secondary battery. there were some devices in the 80's that had a run/ recharge mode. the ron brandt device was such a device. it could run a load and then recharge itself, this is a modified tesla switch. that is what you are looking for. the Sg wont do what you want in its current configuration.

          Thanks for your thoughts Tom. I have some reading to do on the tesla switch. I get the impression this is a different beast to the SG.
          Cheers for giving me a new direction to investigate.

            Have a look at the Matt Jones guide. google
