Enhanced Pultec - [silent:arts] version

Postby [silent:arts] » Wed Sep 06, 2006 7:57 pm

as promised: my version of the Pultec PEQ1 (YET UNTESTED)

featuring 11 LF shelf drop freq. (20 - 2000Hz), 11 indipendend LF shelf boost freq. (20 - 2000Hz), 11 peak freq. (1K - 20K) and 11 shelf drop freq (3K - 28K).

my freq. calculation excell sheet is here

PCBs arrived today, so I stuffed what I have had at home (still have to order some parts):

when everything is tested and working I will post the schematics and PCB layout.

me two. they don't look like haufe or pikatron, but measured well and are 1+1:1. I found 12 of them in an old "geräteträger" i got for free ...[/quote]

I tried IBF - not the cheapest but the PCBs are ok.

Looks very cool, thanks for sharing.

Are those inductors self-wound ? I guess the amp section is based on Jakob's SRPP stage ?

Yes, selfwound inductor (epcos RM8, N49 Core). and yes, the makeup stage is Jacobs SRPP stage.
I can post the schematics tonight.

thanks frank 8)

btw, should be easy to convert the PCB to Lundahls - there is enough space left (first I wanted to do the layout for both, but then I thought w.t.f., get ready with your unit)

Cute, Volker <insert thumb-up-icon here>!

Looks like Pultecs are quite popular around here at the moment.

Hi Volker,
thats a very nice project. I really admire people like you being able to develop their own design, to built a costum made inductor and finally etch their own pcbs. I always ask myself: what do they know, I don´t know; what abilities do they have, I don´t have (sigh). Well, I still solder standard parts on premade pcbs, but half year ago I even didn´t think of the possibilty to built my own SSL or 1176. I´m still learning and DIY is so interesting. Keep on going with these fantastic projects so that people like me can learn from. ATM I´m working on G-Pultecs (maybe a stereo version). I stick to the standard frequencies. So, congratulations and thumbs up.
regards
Bernd

P.S: Do you plan to make the pcbs and inductors available for less experienced DIYers like me?

Hi Bernd,
first I have to finish the unit and see if it works :D
don't know when this will happen since I have a leck of time and money at the moment :(
doing this inductor is not hard if you can count up to 410 :)
oh, and since those unknown transformers I used are not available the PCB should be changed to Lundahls or something else.
if you are interested in a PCB set I can change the layout to other transformers and send you the files.

Hi Volker,
yes, the layout with easy available Transformers (Lundahl or OEP) would be nice, although I´m not able to etch the PCBs myself. You said, that you had your pcbs made by a company. How much would I have to pay for a few pcbs? Are their any pcbs services with reasonable prices available?
Thanks a lot
Bernd
