[0.1″ pitch stripboard] D*A*M – 1966 Italian Tone Bender


Mine first post here!

First of all – Really Big Thanks to Sinner for inviting me here on turretboard.org! It’s really a great honor for me.

So… Here’s layout for last version (from 2010 I think) of sadly discontinued D*A*M 1966.

What it is? Vox Tone Bender replica!
In nutshell Vox Tone Bender share almost the same circuit as Fuzz Face, D.A. Main additionaly has introduced few tweeks which allows to achive different sonic possibilities.

Main change – added switch between ’66 and Super Bee mode. ’66 gives You classic Vox Tone Bender vintage vibes – very raspy and angry tones. Super Bee mode adds more bottom end and volume.
In this version Super Bee mode works little different than in previous 1966. In 2010 version – switch changes resistance of Level pot by adding in parallel 47K resistor, in previous version (will post layout in following days…) switch is changing output capacitor.

Additionaly in 2010 version bias trimpot was moved and now it allow to bias Q1 collector and Q2 base at the same time – according to D.A. Main “It does that clean up thing betterer and is more temperature stable“.

OK… at the moment it’s all. Will update this project page soon for sure!

And one more thing… If You ever will have possibility to get D*A*M pedal – I highly recommend those beautiful dirt boxes. Work of David and Linzi are always top notch!


Due to D*A*M counterfeit pedals that recently appeared on the marked all D*A*M straight layouts will be removed from turretboard.org and will be replaced soon with our own works and interpretations.

Rock On!
