BYOC Reverb 2

Got a request to make a layout for this schematic, and it turns out it's the BYOC Reverb 2. You can use 9mm pots and board mount them from the component side if you like. There are a few jumpers, though one of them (the one by the lower IC) can be eliminated if you just stretch out that 22k resistor. Also, the electrolytic caps are folded down on their side so things will fit with board mounted 9mm pots. The Belton BTDR-2H can also be board mounted from the solder side. Don't feel like making the board yourself? You can buy a PCB or a complete kit from BYOC.

  1. I like the sound BYOC nice Reverb 2
    and I also like the sound of his chorus BYOC well.

  2. Hi,
    just to be sure… Can I use a BTDR-2H Medium ?

  3. Where is this located in the transfer image library? I didn't see a folder for BYOC. I would use the image that is on this page, but I'm not sure if the dimensions are correct.

  4. I built this reverb. Sounds great but when I push 3pdt starts with "pop sound with reverb". I tried using a pull down resistor but no change.

    1. You could try increasing the value of the 39k resistor by the output. Start with like 100k and see if that does anything.

    2. hi bud, can we say this one is verified?

    3. Oh yeah, probably. You ever get the popping sorted out Nacho?

  5. The volume is low, hiss sound is loud
    And yes, popping when engage

    Suggestion?

  6. Yes, I use 1M resistor by the output but it still pop with reverb.

    1. I even tried to put a pulldown resistor and changed the 470k next to the input into 4M7 resistor, still no change.

      I'll try to change the 4k7 resistors from pin 5&6 of the btdr, and the 22k above the 22nF with bigger values to see what will happen.

    2. Could you tried this things? Thanks!
