Norton Dirt - PCB Kit

Regular price $29.00 $0.00

The NORTON is a very unique dirt pedal built using an LM3900 "norton" transresistance amplifier (current input / voltage output). Circuit topology is similar to HAGFACE, in that there is a gain stage followed by a clipping stage and buffered TONE control. By using the entire signal swing available with a 9V supply, noise floor is low - this is one very quiet distortion / fuzz pedal. An auto-LED circuit flashes in proportion to signal.

The PCB kit includes a blank circuit board and most of the parts that solder to it (plus wire, feet, and a label). You will need to separately purchase the remaining components (enclosure, foot-switch, LED, jacks, pots, knobs). Parts list is included in manual below.

Specifications

  • True bypass
  • 26dB maximum gain
